zuzus petals after the fire

zuzus petals has been part of the park slope culture since 1971.
if this means nothing to you, better to ....what is the verb...? blogoff.
i am totally unsure of what a blog is and what this will translate into and who out there will locate this piece of writing and be interested. this is an experiment...a tentative toe extension onto thin ice into a world i do not comprehend.
i am brave, although certainly not fearless.this feels very strange.
the facts: this last august 26th my flowershop was destroyed by a fire that began in the restaurant next was one of those things that reminds you of john lennon's lyric" life is what happens when you're making other plans".so i am re-building my shop and my life.
it seems essential to grow my business on the internet and a friend suggested this blogthing.
so here i am at my keyboard in brooklyn, trying to write something that does not totally humiliate me. how silly.
i have stood behind the counter in my shop for 33 years selling flowers and plants and listening to people talk about their lives and their thoughts and their is a good way to earn a living.
and what happens now....
