As promised, the new blog. Yes I know, bated breath and all that.
FYI.. Bate is a verb dating to the 14th century meaning to deprive or to lessen. It is a clipped form of abate. Shakespeare was the first to use bated breath in 1596 in The Merchant of Venice, I.iii.123.
Ano is biblical Greek for up, upwards, or the quarters of heaven.
Allasso is biblical Greek for change or transformation.
So...proper or not, I strung them together in classic Hollywood reimagining form (not really classic as the reimagining trend is only very recent). The upward change. Hopefully, I am changing upward.I am reaching into the quarters of heaven and pulling down something that will help me transform into something that requires less transformation the next time.
I'm hoping others will join the journey. I'm hoping to find friends in anoallasso.

I thought for sure that I could find 5 to 10 minutes each day to write something. How hard can that be, really?
And that makes me wonder what the average lifespan of a blog is. I suppose it depends on the audience size. At some point, when your audience is the same as the radius of your voice calling out "I just updated my blog," you lose motivation. And ranting just isnt the same if there is no one to receive the rant.
I guess its time to change formats. Like all good radio stations do when their listenership drops (or maybe its because dj's get bored, i dont know).
So...new format. New blog. I'm writing a book and i'll use this as a forum to test ideas (and steal some of yours).
Be back soon with a new blog...stay tuned.
