Risky Move

Today I did something risky. Carolyn, one of my students was talking about her love of writing. It shows in her work, I said. That made her happy; she related that she's writing a novel.

Then I flicked on my computer and clicked the icon for this blog. I scrolled down to the "Space Entitlement" entry. "This is really interesting," she cooed. "Who wrote it."

My grin told her everything. I explained that she was looking at an entry in my blog, which documents my "last" year before surgery. She wrote the web address and has promised to read more.

I'll be very interested to see her reaction, to say the least.
