Firing Blanks

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

A few things have been weighing on my mind lately: faith/religion and my son's recent curiosity with our bi-racial family/skin color. I've been trying for several days to write something that is not a bunch of incomprehensible gobble de gook.

I thought I was being so clever today when I remembered the voice activated mini recorder we bought for our last nanny.

So, I take it in the car on my way to an oil change and car wash and talk for almost nine minutes about DS and what a boy at school said to him, the book I checked out from the library, I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla and what DS said about the new little boy in his class.

I talk and talk thinking I can transcribe everything and re-arrange it until it makes sense. Then I thought of one more point I wanted to make, and recorded over everything!

So now I've got nuttin'. Zip. Nada.

  1. Just post the gobbledy-gook then. Those are all topics I would LOVE to get your take on.

    By the way, "I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla"? LONG TIME favorite around here. Along with "Hope" by Isabell Monk and "All the Colors We Are" by Katie Kissinger.


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
