Go Tell It On the Mountain

What's left of Kayford Mountain in West Virginia

I'm sneaking in a quick post here from the "office" this week in southern California. The nature of work this week and the resulting lack of sleep makes it nearly impossible to post anything substantive, much less a sentence.

However, I would like to take this opportunity to direct you over to Julie Zickefoose's site and her latest post. As a former journalist,  I am acutely aware of the power that blogs have to inform, educate and bring awareness -- it is an informative medium that has the "hired guns" of corporate-sponsored journalism quaking.

Julie Zickefoose is one of those bloggers whose gentle voice and uncanny wisdom informs her readership in ways that can change the world. Her post yesterday is no exception and is perhaps one of the most important topics she's covered on her blog to date.

Blogging with your conscience is sometimes tough - I applaud Julie for stepping out of that box that her readers so dearly love and encourage you to take a moment to listen to what she has to say. She's bringing blogging to the next level and I, for one, am moved to follow. If you connect at all with what she writes about -- leave a comment there.

I want to believe that we, in this little nature-loving blog community, can take the little skimming stones that writers like Julie toss out and turn those arching ripples into tidal waves. Hope floats there on those trembling waters.
