Imagine my surprise to find my brother Ross has effectively quit his blogging adventures because Facebook has taken him over and is the endpoint of most of his spare computing time.

I'm surprised because, like so many things in our life, we both are doing the same thing at the same time, separately (a phase wherein we were both Led Zeppelin fans comes to mind, he in college in New Hampshire, I in the ancestral manse in Mass). For I too have given up on blogging, thinking it way too one-sided. Why pontificate when you can have a conversation?

So, dear friends, I bid you goodbye from this mountaintop, and invite you to join up and ask to "be my friend." I'm tired of shouting from a balcony.
