The blog hosts at WordPress asked if I could be less wordy. They reminded me that brevity pulls a reader in. I get it: Say more by saying less. They encourage me to blog (of course!). Still, maybe I should consider whether posting EVERY day — whether or not I have anything else to do (I don’t) — might be too much — for my followers. Or maybe my daily posts could be shorter? (That’s throwing me off, because I’ve got this essay on coniferous junipers in the rainforest ready to post. ) Anyway, they’re right. Why toss my litter into the blogosphere? So today I’m writing home. I found some postcards. I figure my sister Rose, my mother, and best friend Brill back East each deserve a cheery handwritten note from me. Eco-friendly.
