There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or to be the mirror that reflects it.
- Edith Wharton
Ms. Wharton sums up how I think of blogs. My desire is to reflect the articles and pictures that inspire me when surfing the Web by posting them on my blogs. Blogs create a scrapbook of events to review later inspiring me for a second time. This is a great pleasure and an educational activity providing me with learning missed when I was in school. The Web has demonstrated its great value in generating and spreading new ideas. Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Occupy Wall Street and other revolutions have gained momentum on the Web.
If you have a favorite cause like animal rights, you can play a part in education the world by posting to your blog. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
I get to communicate my worldview as seen from my backwater home town situated on an island in the Pacific.
Charles Lillard seems to be inviting us all to give a try writing down our thoughts in this statement:
"To read means to borrow; to create out of one's reading is paying off one's debts."
My goal is to pay off my debt for all the good stuff I read.
