Hi!

Dear Audience,

I guess I could address this “To Whom It May Concern”, but that’s just too impersonal and business-like, and I’ve been at work all day anyway, so who want’s that?

Or I could say “Dear Sir”, but if someone is actually reading this, that someone might not be a sir.  Same thing for “Dear Madam”, and of course, now there’s a third option, but I don’t even want to go there…at least not right now.

Dearest Audience is w-a-a-a-y too familiar.

Hey, Gang!…too cheeky.

Wazup….definitely not my style, whatever that is.

Hmmm….

How about…..hello.  It isn’t catchy, or original, certainly not sophisticated.  It is, nonetheless, heartfelt, down-to-earth, and, well, me.  Now, the professional me, the one that wears a lab coat and takes temperatures spends too much precious time dispensing the collective wisdom of health and wellness to people who may or may not already know what they should do but don’t plan to do it.  The wife/mother me tries to be encouraging, listening, and probably over-compensating.  The facebook me is careful to not offend my “friends”, some of whom I don’t even know. 

Those are all part of me, to some degree.  But the blogger me, that’s just me.  Not worried about offending, not trying to keep the peace, or even put food on the table.  I write me.  And therefore, “my” audience is anyone who might find themselves interested in, um, … me.  Not my face, nor my resume, not my personal issues or political affiliations, educational degrees and certifications. 

Just me. 

And sooooo…..for anyone who might think anything coming from me might be something that they might be interested in…

….hello.

#Carpediem — #Friday is Blue #Denim Day!

Seriously, very few people have trouble celebrating Friday, at least in our part of the planet.  It’s kinda like not looking forward to spring break, summer vacation, or snow days (as if you can’t tell I work in the educational system…) 

But there’s really more to Friday then just waiting for the clock to say “quitting time”.  Friday is officially Blue Denim Day!  Think of it—what other material is as strong, as well as versatile, as good ole’ American blue denim?

That’s why Friday is the day to accentuate, appreciate, and otherwise celebrate those people, ideas, and activities that bring durability and stability to our lives…

…as well as to be one of those people!

If you’re celebrating Blue Denim Day, tell me how…  —dawnlizjones
