An offer I couldn't refuse

Liz Strauss made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Be a guest contributor on her blog.

I was honored.

The brief was simple. Connect dots.

Dots being blogs at and TheGoodBlogs. The dots may seem like disjointed points in the blogosphere but in my mind, they create pictures and stories that inspire and challenge. The weekly column, called Connecting dots is about emotional resonance, the things people share on their blogs that make me smile, cry and wish for more.

Every dot has name, every dot has a heart. The aim is to celebrate blogs and show we are so different and yet so alike. And in the end, to share what Liz and I believe in so much...

It's all about people and the conversations that make life so wonderful.

Thanks Liz, for the crayon.

Oh Vern,
You saw the picture and drew it so beautifully. Who would dey an artist the tools he needs?

Crayons, all you like, with smile on each one.

Ahh, you're too kind. I see myself more a doodler, letting the crayon find its way with no preconceptions just enjoying the journey.
