A 'Blog About Sawdust?

ex·cel·si·or (k-sls-r) n.

Slender, curved wood shavings used especially for packing.

Why are you naming your 'blog after wood shavings? Well, I would like to say that it is because I believe there is poetry in everything, in looking at the world a little differently than most, of paying attention, of observation, the beauty in the slender curvy wood shavings.

Actually, though, it's not nearly as creative as all that. I mean the Latin excelsior (ever upward), which Stan "the man" Lee signed off of all his "Stan's Soapboxes" in Marvel Comics. So, true believers, stay tuned, and......... EXCELSIOR!!
