I can hardly believe it!
Four years ago, when I was about to publish my first book, What’s in It for Me? Finding Ourselves in Biblical Narratives, my wonderful Writing Coach and Web Page Designer, Susan Marie Shuman, (please visit http://www.rabbifuchs.com) told me:
“You have to have a blog!”
“Not interested,” I replied. “Nobody will care, and nobody will read it.”
“You have to have a blog,” was Susan’s response.
“Susan always knows what she is talking about,” I figured.
And so, I launched my blog.
The essay I posted this morning about the struggle of tomato workers in Immokalee for safe conditions in the field, affirmation of their basic human rights and a living wage marked the 500th entry on the blog I did not want to begin.
It is hard for me to believe, and I am grateful to every one of you who has ever stopped to ponder my thoughts.
And I am beyond grateful to Susan Marie for not taking, “No,” for an answer!
It is beyond my imagination that in another four years I will post another 500 essays.
But then, four years ago it was hard for me to imagine that I would post even one.
So who knows what will happen?
I hope you will stay tuned to find out.
