I also like to think of myself as being capable of some pretty slick and smooth writing that, whilst sometimes bending the rules of grammar to breaking point, delivers some worthwhile entertainment.
It does not come easy to me however. I have to trawl though area's of my mind that I very sensibly vacated many years ago in order to obtain some of the material that ends up as a blog article. I dodge, as neatly as possible, the somewhat darker memories and attempt to document only the lighter side of what it is like to be me!
Others can sit themselves in front of their laptops/PCs and effortlessly fire-up their neurons in such a way as to deliver sophisticated and, in most cases, humorous anecdotes directly onto their blogs without so much as a second thought.
I, on the other hand, have to tweak and re-tweak before I consider an article ready for posting. Some, after a considerable 'construction' phase, never see the light of day.
Today is another one of those days where, although there are a number of things I would like to tell the world about, my neurons failed to 'burn' and the 'construction' idea's that I had for my article, have vanished in their entirety.
The one thought that remains, but which I hadn't planned to write about is ...
- Minnesota comes from a Sioux Indian word meaning "sky-tinted water", or "water that reflects the sky."
I knew that!
