Quotable: Rain rain rain edition

It just keeps raining around here. Which inspired me to listen to one of my favorite songs this morning. "Box of Rain" by Grateful Dead...

Walk into splintered sunlight;
Inch your way through dead dreams to another land.
Maybe you're tired and broken;
Your tongue is twisted -
With words half spoken and thoughts unclear...
What do you want me to do, to do for you, to see you through?
A box of rain will ease the pain, and love will see you through.

Just a box of rain - wind and water -
Believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on.
Sun and shower - wind and rain -
In and out the window, like a moth before a flame.

It's just a box of rain - I don't know who put it there -
Believe it if you need it, or leave it if you dare.
But it's just a box of rain - or a ribbon for your hair -
Such a long long time to be gone, and a short time to be there.

Hi Lisa,
I can't even explain the bizzare way I found your blog - but, I did, and now I have a question:

I'm a recent college grad, and I majored in advertising. I do quite a bit of blogging myself, and I'm just wondering if you've found any backlash from having a blog?

Hey Mindy. I haven't had much backlash - but you have to be careful about what you post. (Especially about your company, clients, or competitors.) As long as you are careful about what you say in your blog, it's a nice way to keep writing and to be involved in social media.
