I’d thought about starting a blog for some time. It was the conversation today with my daughter about the blog she had just started that finally made me commit to trying. January 1st seemed like the perfect day to begin something new. So I am going to put my thoughts down in digital form to send out into the internet. I do find a certain clarity comes from writing things down so if nothing else this process will certainly help me define my thoughts and feelings on a range of topics. I’ll also post some older material that I’ve written. So lets begin.
