Yep, I’m doing it. This is it. The beginning. I’ve started my web site and this blog, this collection of essays.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what this blog should be about. What’s my shtick? What’s the focus? Because when you create a web site or blog or online something or the other, you need to have a strategy, right? Well, my strategy is pretty much whatever is rumbling around in my head. I think about a lot of different things, and I write about a lot of different things. So pretty much, anything goes.
With my essays, I write about day-to-day things, describe family stories and memories, share my random, goofy thoughts, and sometimes even write about serious issues that matter a lot to me.
As a wise person once said (that would be William Wordsworth): Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. I guess I would add to that, the breathings of my thoughts.
And so it begins . . .
