What’s in a name?

18 01 2011

It’s a horrible title, I admit. Anything inaugural has too much pressure on it to deliver a new paradigm, so I am trying to care, but not too much. As the topography of a beach is ever changing, as sediment eventually lives up to its root, and settles in for the long night, blogs too eventually become themselves.

A couple things about this catalyze me:

1) Having earned a writing degree when paper still ruled print, although the electronic destiny clearly had begun, I always thought editors and publishers would be necessary for others to have access to my words. For me to write my thoughts here and post them moments later represents a liberation of epochal magnitudes. I realize how this revelation would have been appropriate a decade ago; perhaps that goes to show what kind of cloud I have been wandering the world in.

2) I have attempted to maintain blogs many times, but they all failed to gain traction…with me, never mind an audience! A proper theme always eluded me, something I could intrepidly investigate with authority and interest. At the end of all that, I just found that I was fed up. So I decided (just moments ago, literally) that I would just write from the hip, so to speak, and free myself from any pretension or imposition of authority, which usually just makes me sound like an idiot anyway. With this release, I feel incredibly light and expansive, as though taking my first deep breath in far too long.

So I thank you, if you choose to read and follow me. I will resist promising anything other than my most concerted effort to be genuine. If that gets boring, please let me know.
