Column: (n) a pillar or a page division; essay
The columns of our philosophy holding up our suppositions are divided into columns and rendered off for reading–in a column.
Now there’s a twisted path of reason. Should keep you busy for a while.
I am of the school of thought that if everyone thinks they can do something then no one can do it, because it is never done well.
Everybody has a blog.
For awhile I referred to my etchings in the great “Cloud” as columns–hearkening back to an era when newspapers actually delivered daily information.
No one liked “column.”
So I tried the word “essay.” Then I sounded like I lived in the nineteenth century, having tea with Charles Dickens and Mark Twain. (Emily Dickinson a no-show…)
It didn’t really make any difference. Once I penned something and placed it on the ethernet, it became a blog.
It’s just difficult to believe that blogs are going to sustain the great American experiment and hold up our faith so that insanity doesn’t crash in on us.
But since no one would ever listen to a case made for the value of pillars and justifications of margins, I think we are in the wild, wild West of authoring articles, sentiments and misspelled paragraphs from our six-guns of inadequacy.
