I've been doing a lot of thinking about revamping this blog. I started this thing about a year ago, and look! I have only a handful of posts.

What was I thinking?

Well, I guess I was thinking it would be a sidebar (you probably already figured that out by the blog name) to my "real" writing--writing I deliriously still would love to get published. You know, I'd write about my writing.

But lately I've been thinking about making it more introspective.

Like I'm sitting along the SIDE of the road, watching life and making observations about it. I've even thought about adding a little explanatory phrase after the name... Observations on life and faith.

Alas...I think I have more thoughts about that subject than my writing.

So what do you think?

The delete key on my laptop keeps breaking. I semi-pop it back into place and bingo! it pops off again. Guess you can figure out why that happens. Yep, it's got a case of overuse.

Lately my life seems to be one big delete. I've pretty much deleted doing any kind of writing from my life--unless you count e-mails and facebook entries. And stuff...I've deleted tons of stuff from my life and will be doing more of the same soon. That's because we're in the middle of another move. At least this one is not overseas. It's from KS to PA--and we're "down-sizing."

But when it comes to friends...those will never be deleted. (Hence the e-mails and FB entries.) I just plan on INSERTING new ones into my life.
