So Shines A Good Deed In A Weary World

What the hell? Someone has actually found, read AND commented on this blog?! I've only told two people about it. One, my younger brother, who just started his own ad agency. Two, a slightly obsessive, self-denying, trustfund-manchild, eternally-aspiring screenwriter friend. I am pretty sure the "blog announcement" went in one ear and out the other of brother. And perhaps the dramatic, and possibly negative characterization of my friend Two, who is a good enough writer to pull off an anonymous comment as a "fifth year copywriter," will draw him out to admit he is playing with me.

Or perhaps there really is someone out there who found, read and was inspired by the premise of this fledgling blog. The truth is, it doesn't matter. Whoever did make this comment -- family, friend or stranger -- can now take the credit for motivating/inspiring ME to actually continue to post and see where this thing goes.

To the reader(s) then, I ask this: if there are any topics you would ever like me to address, please let me know and I will try. Otherwise I will just continue writing this for my own amusement.

Please note: I am not the kind of person who quotes Shakespeare. I wish I had liked or paid any attention to Shakespeare in high school. And I wish I had given him a second chance when I developed more of a "passion for words." In my world, the title of this blog entry comes from the mouth of Willy Wonka. I was deeply disappointed to discover this was not a "Wonka-ism." But then re-inspired to discover the original Merchant of Venice line is "so shines a good deed in a naughty world." I like Wonka's better.

Okay, next post shall be back on topic.
