This marks another bumbling attempt at sophisticated writing – and, hopefully, averting sophistry.

The goal is to write as often as I can possibly afford to, and garner feedback for these posts.

It will arguably take considerable courage to share personal writing with people I know. It is always harder to reveal our true selves to people whose opinions actually matter.  I’ll stand before the firing squad, and be prepared for bullet holes through my soul.

This blog would be called a ‘journal’, connoting (ideally) regular updates and elements of diary-writing.

As always, I look forward to having a conversation with you – even though it starts off a monologue.

Shine the spotlight.

Lift the curtains.
