come out, come out, where ever you are!

Let me just start by saying I spectate with the best of them. I am, by nature, more inclined to watch things happening and observe than to jump into the fray. You can learn a whole lot by being a spectator. That said, there is something to participating. In all truthfulness, those who never stop to watch and look often lose the big picture. But those who are always standing at the edge can't quite gain the experience of actually being in the thick of things. Someone who learns how to do both has an advantage indeed.

Anyway, this week is National Delurking Week, apparently. In this spirit, I invite you to delurk. I have nothing against lurking (except the name which kind of bugs me) in fact I find great pleasure hanging out reading people's blogs and seeing what others have to say. But it would be kind of fun for me to know who stops by from time to time, so if you feel like saying hi, whether you have before or not, go ahead and wave, so that I can wave back. I'll be the one with the box of kleenex in hand. I promise not to sneeze on you.

  4. I post a comment from time to time so I'm not truly a lurker am I? More often than not, however, I'm just nodding my head in agreement and thinking kind thoughts about your insightful way to phrasing things (but doing it silently).

  8. I must say my lurking sensabilities were a little offended at the thought of a complete bianary turn around with such short notice...but, I managed to over come the shock of feeling not so sneaky enough to send off this wave and hope your day has been full of all sorts of adventures...like scubadiving!
