Bloggers:  Never before have so many people with so little to say said so much to so few.

On the other hand, G.K.Chesterton was supposed to have said "In reality, we only talk to ourselves, but sometimes others overhear us."

So perhaps a blog is a stand-in for those people who normally overhear us.  Perhaps it gives us a place to write down what we think, ostensibly for others to read, but in reality just to see it poured out of us and given life of its own, that we may see and realize what we say.

So why Phyku?  It is a combination of my nickname, Phy, and the word haiku.  I created this blog the day after I accidentally created a haiku while driving home.

In the fog ahead
Red and blue police car lights
Blend softly purple
