Hi! Here it is. The new Guestbook page. This is going to be an interesting, exciting experiment for me, as I ultimately stink at communicating with the blogging community on a day-to-day basis since fifty things demand for my attention every day when twenty-four is the doable, maximum number.
This is the experiment: for the entire year of 2017, just leave comments here. Talk about what your favorite ice cream flavor is, why you like snail mail, how being sock-free is liberating, just anything, as long as it is appropriate. On the bottom right hand corner, please click on the checkbox labeled, "Notify me." My challenge is to reply within a day since your comment. If there is a string of comments already started between another individual and myself and you have something to contribute to that tangent of the conversation, then don't hesitate to add to the conversation.
Now, sometimes I won't be able to reply right away because an actual reason came up, like finals or I'm at a softball game and lack access to my phone-- if that is the case, then the time span for replying will be extended to three days. I'll leave a note on this page notifying everyone if that's the case.
Stumped on what to comment on here, exactly? I've left a couple of questions below. Just start off and choose one. I love to have deep, one-on-one discussions with people.
// What is one art piece, from book down to a painting, that speaks out of you and why?
// Fog, mist, sunshine, meteor shower-- tell me a story from your youth that associates with one of these weather / sky phenomenon.
// Describe the one (or several) thing(s) that keep you grounded and not fly away in the midst of life swirling around us.
// What is art? How do you define art, and how can you differentiate those who make art to those who create pale examples in comparison?
// "Fine." "Okay." These are two responses that people prompt whenever asked the question, "How are you?" How are you feeling today? Elaborate more. There are always stories.
