Forgive me blogosphere, for I have not blogged....It's been over a month since my last post!

What's that John Lennon quote? Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans.
Well, I planned to blog every day. OK that's not entirely truthful. My lowered expectation was that I would blog at least 3 times a week. Then I got sucked in by the Olympics and then the Democratic and Republican conventions and then the start of the Fall TV season. I freely declare: "Hi, I'm Ly and I'm a TV-holic!"

Time and time again that glowing box sucks me in. Let me imitate Al Pacino in Godfather III:
"Just when I think I'm out... they pull me back in!"

Seems that the whole nation is in a somewhat collective anomie. [Pink Floyd's "Echoes" is playing on Jango; how fitting.] We're in a daze, we're in a funk, we're the walking wounded. We're drowning our worries in the boob tube goings-on.

Well, behavior modification is needed. Inactivity, passivity, negativity begone! Will power! Can we all will ourselves to be better humans, better citizens--just better, period?

I'm taking baby steps and I'll start with having the TV off right now. I'm actually blogging! Let's see how long it'll last. Hmmmm, it's almost time for Letterman.......
