Why blog?

I have been thinking about starting a blog for a long time. As I wander through my life, I think “what would I blog about this?”  followed by “Just write a journal, get the writing thing out of your head and onto paper.”

 and I also think “who cares about this besides you?”

But the blog idea keeps coming back to me because, of course, I think that what I am doing today, or my reactions to the world around me, are of the utmost interest to EVERYONE!  And I like to write.

So if no one reads this, at least I will get to write.  And if anyone does read it, maybe they will agree or disagree with me and my reactions. Or have a new or different way to do something I am working on.  I hope that they will start conversations where ideas can be exchanged, which is what I really want to have happen, as it turns out.

Yup, it turns out that’s why I am doing this.  So that I can hear from people with viewpoints other than my own or who agree with me totally. So I can learn more and do more. So that my world can grow, not shrink.

So read, react, send comments.  I can’t wait!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
