No bracketed taglines for now.
It's not that I'm discontented with BlogDrive, but I kind of figured that maybe it's high time for me to move to another blog-hosting service. These past few years have been great, I can tell you that, but for now, it's time for Marocharim to move.
I'm keeping this account active as "Original TMX:" I think for all that it has gone through and purposes it served for three years and 1,315 entries (including this one), it should stay just as it is.

Talking to Mama
< hmmm... >
"The grass is always greener on the other side," so they say. Of all the many things I know about all sorts of grass, there's always a different view from where you stand.

I take it for granted, perhaps even take it as an annoyance, that I can talk to my mom whenever I feel like it. But for others, it's different: for the kid beside me, it's having to talk to her Mommy through a headset...
