Starting My Own News Paper
The newspapper is a rare and beautiful voice that I enjoy listening to. It has always been one of my all time favorite songs. Back in the 80s, I had my first exposure to “newspapper” when I heard it on Cash For Clunkers by Don McClean. It became an immediate favorite and still remains one of my favorite.
So, how did I get my wonderful, sweet, poetic lyrics delivered to my eardrums? I’m glad you asked, because there are several ways to accomplish this end. First, I listen to the song as softly as I can. Then, I write them down in my notepad as if they were an instructional poem. Finally, I sing them to myself in my favorite relaxing voice.
In need men of courage, I have given this piece its due. Singing “Supremely Frightened” in the shower has been a great relaxation for me, as well as, the people who bathe me each day. It was the catalyst for me learning how to write in the first place. With the help of some new technology, I will also be able to share my love of newspappers with my fellow writers.
In the last post on Aug, I wrote about the importance of leaving something behind for the reader after reading. This includes leaving comments on blogs and articles I have written. I hope to continue to do this until I die, and then my work will live on, as will my words. To those readers who are unfamiliar with this phenomenon, I would like to assure you that I am very sorry for my previous statement. Since I now know better, I no longer leave any comment on the blog or article, unless, of course, I want to.
The last post on Aug made me realize just how important it is to be sociable and not feel alone in my passion. I have come to realize that friendships are much stronger than any kind of relationship. And while this might seem trite, it is important to keep in mind that we must always remember where we came from, where we are going and how to get there.
These are just a few of the things I have realized after taking on the role of newspapper. It is not a walk in the park, but it is definitely worth a try. I have met many interesting people and I have shared some very meaningful moments. If you think that blogging is the thing for you, I would encourage you to give it a go.
