Many of my acquaintances, both friends and family, go for Facebook to keep in touch. I do have a Facebook account, but I don’t use it much. It’s too exposed and crazy to suit me. I’m hoping that this blog will provide me with a good venue for discourse, with those that really want to talk to me. I will keep the Facebook account because there are those that I want to stay in contact with that don’t do anything else.
Now that I have my website up and functioning, where do I go from here? There are lots of things that I want to talk about. And it looks like you will have to taste the whole tamale to keep up with it. The different facets of my work and interests will be covered under their respective pages. I see the blog as being the vehicle for my philosophical and emotional expression.
One of the more important things that you need to know about me (those that are close to me already know this) is how irregular I am, and I don’t mean gastrointestinaly. I mean that I find it difficult to keep up with a routine. It can work for a while, but then something will change. Please don’t expect these missives every day, every week, or even every month. I will make every effort to stay with you, but every morning at 6:00 AM forever ain’t gonna happen. You will be able to gauge (if you care to) how things are going by the frequency and vitality of my writings.
One of the big advantages of being 73 is that I have had a lot of time to work through this stuff. I find it very difficult to form any coherent understanding of my behavior while I’m in the midst of it. But once I’m on to something else, hindsight usually gives me a clearer view of what has really happened.
I so firmly believe that we are not a world unto ourselves. We exist and function as communities. However, we all have our own unique and vital contributions, hence this site. I look forward to knowing you better, my friends and compatriots, and sharing myself and what I see as important.
