not always satisfying... frequently lacking in feedback... vessels that get filled with words and thoughts and emotions, often without any indication of impact. I very much consider this blog to be an exercise in expression for myself, but the comments I receive from readers/followers certainly spur me on, just like those rare examples of parenting success that my children provide me, manage to make me forget the challenges of child-rearing. For those of you who indulge me by reading DelSo, and who have not been able to make comments in the past, please know that I have tweaked my settings (not painful at all!) and enabled anonymous comments. So, comment away! I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
