Introducing Oy Vey Rockaway

There are many things you can’t learn to do by watching–so I have entered the blogosphere!

With the above words, my friend, sometimes paddling companion, and fellow Sebago Canoe Club member Vivian Rattay Carter (a.k.a. Rockaway Vivian) started her blog, Oy Vey Rockaway, entering the blogosphere on August 31, 2010.

Vivian more than once has helped draw attention to my blog, complimented me on my writing, and enabled some of my photos to appear in local publications. Thanks, Viv.

Fair is fair. Since Viv has helped Summit to Shore gain exposure, I hereby return the favor and introduce her and her blog to my readers.

Visit Rockaway Vivian's blog, Oy Vey Rockaway, and see what she is cooking up there and serving to her readers.  If you like the service, leave a comment rather than a tip.

Thank you, John! It was a thrill to type "Oy Vey Rockaway" into a Google search box this morning, and find your message welcoming me to this strange new world, the blogosphere. I enter with enthusiasm, yet trepidation, alert to the imminent risk of "deselfing," defined by Canadian novelist Douglas Coupland in the very funny "Dictionary of the Near Future" (9/12/10 N.Y. Times). Deselfing: willingly diluting one's sense of self and ego by plastering the Internet with as much information as possible. Coupland also defines "undeselfing" and says it is arduous and futile to ever try to reverse the process. I'll hope for the best, and your plug is a good start. On to the 25th anniversary of the International Coastal Cleanup. Hope neighbors will join us to help today (Sat. 9/25) at 10 a.m. at Sebago Canoe Club in Canarsie.
