~FOR SETH~

Our friends, Seth and Jane Anne Owen got Keith and I started on this whole blogging thing. And I'm not sure about Keith but I've really enjoyed it. I love opening up my email and seeing that someone has taken the time to read my blog and leave a comment. I also love checking out other peoples blogs because in this crazy life sometimes we just don't have the time to stay in touch with friends and family the way we would like too. So peoples blogs give you a brief glimpse into their lives.
The other day as we sat talking about our blogs, Seth asked me what "Hazy Views", the title of my blog, meant. Before I explain my blog title, lets get some background information. Both Seth and Jane Anne's blogs have interesting titles but they have "definitions". Jane Anne's blog Gravity of Motion means; the weight of constant activity. Seth's blog Popping Smoke means; the act of activating & throwing a smoke grenade, often to cover your movement out of an area. The idea of naming my blog gave me pause for a couple of days. I kept trying to figure out what I could name it, thinking I needed to have some great definition to explain my blog. But I finally realized that my blog would never get started if I waited for the perfect name to come to me. So I reflected a bit on what I would be blogging about. I would have to say that I'm a gal with a number of ideas and opinions but I'm too lazy (and busy, but mostly lazy) to "look up" supporting facts for my opinions. Case in point - I'm sure that on my post about driving, I could have looked up information on the Internet that would have given me some exact, factual figures on the number of traffic accidents that actually occur everyday. I also could have found out the exact weight of our Durango and the motor size without saying it was heavy and had a big motor. But that's just not who I am. I wish I were. But since I'm not, I knew that my posts would contain thoughts and opinions that didn't necessarily have facts to back them up, which would in turn make them very HAZY VIEWS.

I'm confused. All this time I thought it had to do with eye sight :}

Okay, I have been meaning to comment on this one. I looked up "Hazy" online and the definition says, "filled or abounding with fog or mist." Now, based on that definition- all hazy means to me is that you haven't had your Venti Extra Caramel Machiatto.
