Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

This past weekend, Rachel and I hosted a gathering of some friends we'd met on-line. For most of them, this was a new experience -- reconciling real faces and voices with the profile built up in one's mind, based solely on what they had written online. For me, it was anything but new. As recently as last June, I met up with other bloggers (man I hate that term!) at the studios of KRON here in San Francisco. (I'm on the left side of the photo, in the "nerd" t-shirt.) It goes way back, much further than that, though. Travel back with me, if you will, to a simpler time, before the internet was a household word and Fido was king.
