Keith's Soap Box #001: Blog of Dreams

i will admit it; one of my favorite movies is "field of dreams" staring kevin costner. david can't stand kevin costner. he refers to him as "dull as dishwater". sure some of his roles leave a lot to be desired. but i am a sucker for sappy, sentimental stories.

for those of you that don't know the movie the basic plot is that kevin costner's character ray is an iowan corn farmer who one day hears a voice tell him to plow down his field and build a baseball diamond. the voice says in a burning-bush-from-the-ten-commandments-kinda-way, "if you build it they will come!" i won't give away anymore of the movie just in case you haven't seen it. rent it, put it in your netflix queue...it's a fun watch.

so why am i writing about "field of dreams"? i'll tell you. i started this blog on a whim. "k" at work writes this fantastically funny blog. i wanted to leave a comment on one of her entries. i figured that while i was at it i may as well register and start my own blog.

i was a bit shy at first about writing on the internet about stuff that i saw or about my personal life. but i quickly found myself wanting to write more; writing to an imaginary audience is so much fun. i finally got up the courage to announce the site to my friends and family in hopes that they would read it and maybe join in on the fun and leave comments. some have and some haven't.

if you blog it will they come?

so i thought i would start my "Keith's Soap Box" series with this entry. don't be shy. click on the pencil icon or the "comments" link and leave a note. i would love to read what you think (of course be kind). lurkers should still feel free to lurk all you want. maybe some day i'll write something that will compel you to write a comment that will lead to you starting your own blog.

cheers,
keith (stepping off soap box #001)

Good for you, Keith!!!

I am totally with you on the "just build it, they will come" sentiment.

however, I am totally with David on the anti-Kevin-Costner stance.

Hi Keith!
Have been "lurking" and enjoying your blog.I like what you knit, you write well, always interesting,and I used to live in the Bay Area. I dislike Kevin Costner's acting, but sat through Dances With Wolves last night as my husband had never seen it. I knit mostly in green.So,obviously, we have a lot in common...;)
