six years

six years ago,
I started blogging.

six years ago,
I started putting my thoughts to my keyboard,
connecting the words in my brain
to the words on the electronic screen.

six years ago,
I was still in college,
in my final year at Morris, MN.

six years ago,
I created On the Prairie
my very first blog ever.

six years later,
I’m writing at a break-your-neck speed,
fingers dashing toward the black-and-white ribboned finish line,
the muscles in my hands dancing to a drummer’s steady rat-a-tat-tat beat.

six years later,
I’m reading more,
I’m writing more,
I’m blogging almost every day.

six years later,
I’m still a writer.

M.B.B.
