I wonder if anyone goes back and reads the very first post of a blog. You think? I may track down the first posts of the blogs I follow just to see what they were like. In fact, that may be an interesting entry in itself.
Before I post this entry, I'll delete all the test entries I made in the past few days. You have to test your blog by emailing in posts, posting pics etc. to see how things look. It's made for some goofy posts -- you had to have been there. The digital realm is a fluid one, and unlike a medieval manuscript, this blog will no doubt undergo vast changes in appearance and content over night. I can change the content of any post on my blog any time I want. That doesn't seem right for something chronologically based, but that's how it is.
I will be leaving the entry "Ganesha" as the first official post. It really deserves to be The First Post.
I'm hoping this blog will develop into something useful beyond itself. It should exist as a node in the network as well as a gathering point and launching point. Hmmm, a bit abstract but you'll see as we go along.
There are a number of posts that will appear these coming days that will allow me to introduce myself -- so you can get an idea of where all this is coming from -- but I also mention that this is most definitely coming from a place. Buddha counseled not to consider any place your permanent abode, but this blog is currently emanating from the 11th floor condo where I live in the Makiki district of Honolulu. I'll have much to say about my neighborhood in the the posts to come.

I love the view and every morning I look outside and take the same damned picture. But more to say later.
Talk to you again soon.
P.S. This blog is DougNote on twitter. I couldn't find a Twitter gadget that looked okay.
