Good morning, Netizens...
For those of you who have read Community Comment for any prolonged period of time, you will quite possibly remember my creation called “The Virtual Ballroom”, a fantasy world I created from the inception of Community Comment. The Ballroom is a fanciful, fictional place in my heart which is a mix of living, mortal souls and ghosts of great and not-so-great individuals who call this place home. It is traditional, when visiting the Virtual Ballroom, that the host offers each visitor a free espresso drink, typically named in honor of whatever occasion comes to mind. We've had some doozies over the years.
For the sake of many of our recent visitors, occasionally I write fiction/fantasy because I love it so, and thus it too has become part of this Blog.
As of late I have been remiss in tending the “home fires” of the Virtual Ballroom, mostly because of the considerable demands placed upon my disposable time aside from Journalism and writing. However, as we approach Christmas each year, I have always posted fiction and non-fiction about the Christmas Season as I perceive it to be.
I am hopeful that in the coming days, I will be able to find the time to share some of these tales, including a brief visit to the Virtual Ballroom, for the sake of our Russian guests, and that you will find it illuminating or perhaps amusing.
