Blogging threads, the beauty of expressions

Sometimes I wonder if blogging is just entirely self-referencing -- running in little circles around a small group. My last post was about Lois Lowry. A teen, reading my blog, gave a report on it to her group at the YMCA. "A writer's blog, by a writer for other writers." That's pretty succinct, and accurate.

This teen is from Guatemala and has only been here a few years. After she read my post she went to the library and read a couple of Lois Lowry's books.

Score.

And a lovely expression from a friend of mine from El Salvador as we were talking about how much you need your friends and family around when you are very old. "Money doesn't walk to your bed," she said.
