I once wrote a poem entitled, Ode to a Blank Piece of Paper ~ it spoke to the excitement of a fresh start and a new beginning and to a tiny sense of reluctance to make the first defining mark. Starting a new blog brings out many of the same feelings. I could spend hours just sorting through and trying on the wide variety of themes available through WordPress. I could, quite happily, lose myself looking at all the bells and whistles associated with Wordpress. Fun, daunting, time consuming!
This is not my first blog. I have been blogging since 2007 but bloggerspot has been my home. This fall I participated in an open online seminar called Exploring Personal Learning Networks. It was orchestrated/hosted/facilitated by Jeff Merrell and Kimberly Scott out of Northwestern University in Chicago.

This is a cool post that probably captures my feelings and current experience in blogging for #comm506. I’ve re-posted this on my blog… It would be nice if you could post that poem!
Thanks Leo. I wrote the poem when I was a teenager and I like to believe that my poetry has improved since then . . . but here it is.
Ode to a blank Piece of Paper
Oh piece of blank white paper,
You have yet to know the limits of design
Your scope is infinite
I stand in awe of the things you could be
I hesitate to make a single defining mark
For you are the definition of imagination.
Nice. Reading the 40 Below Project book made me realize there are some cool poems (No pub intended). This is definitely one of them.
Love it! Thanks.
