I started blogging from this year on and I have not really kept up the promise I made to myself of posting at least twice a week. Sheer laziness can be my only excuse ! But I got to admit that I spend lots of time visiting blogs, you can can call me a compulsive blog reader. Not a day goes before I visit at least dozen or more blogs - both English and தமிழ் . From July on, I am going to work diligently towards two posts per week.
I was just thinking which are all the web sites I have been visiting almost daily for some time and Anu Garg's A Word A Day site (http://wordsmith.org/awad/index.html) popped on the top of my mind. This is a site I have been visiting almost daily (weekdays) for more than five years. Being word freak, I had learned a lot from this site and as an added bonus, you get wonderful quotes thrown in. This is a site I would recommend wholeheartedly.

|How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast has this glorious starry firmament for a roof! In such places standing alone on the mountaintop it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make -- leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone -- we all dwell in a house of one room -- the world with the firmament for its roof -- and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track. -John Muir, naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914) |
