Why, look! It’s a weekend and here I am consulting the appointment book to figure out what to write about next week. How fortunate that there appears to be some time here to write about that person or story or situation that you know about that I don’t.
Like what? One of the stories I want to do is about high school kids who are about to graduate and who are leaving the family farm, probably for good. Is that you? Let me know.
Here was one of my favorite moments of the last week. Here’s the kind of person I’d like to talk to sometime. Here’s one of my favorite posts that came about because someone knew something about somebody, and here’s the type of post I could spend all day working on.
Everybody’s got a story, so tell me what you know and let’s get it told. You can use this form, or simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
