I see.

I have been wondering how to make the blog more awesome.  Wait, I've got it- write on it more?  No, that's silly.  Surely it will get more awesome just by exisiting.  I mean, that's an eight year archive you have to catch up on.  Isn't that enough?
Of course not.  A daily post seems a little much, don't you think?  I mean if you're subjected to my daily thoughts you'll end up with something like this. 

I've been using the phrase "I see."  Too often.  I read and audit all of the charts at work and I've noticed that I've responded to messages with "I see."  I literally mean, "OH, I get it!"  in a happy understanding sort of way. 
But I realize now that "I see" only comes out as menacing or sarcastic. 
"I see."  he said as he pressed his fingertips together and sat back on his throne.  A faint smile crossed his lips as he continued with carefully measured words.  "You shall be hung by the neck until dead." 
Or, "Oh, I see."  She said as she rolled her eyes.  "Idiot."

So, I will stop using it as soon as possible. 

See?  Daily posts:  no way.  Because believe me, my daily life is not terribly entertaining.  Instead, I will renew the promise of last year and attempt to do a weekly 'column' here on the old blog.  That will ensure that I get to 1000 posts this year, and keep me on some kind of schedule.  Let's say Sunday nights.  Or, in actuality, look for it on Monday mornings. 

Yes, I will cheat and use India as a subject.

Sharing your memories and descriptions of India isn't cheating! Enjoyed the pictures and would like to read more.
