Nine years ago, I sat down at my keyboard and wrote this. That first entry was not an earth-shattering epiphany of the need to collect and record my priceless thoughts and philosophy. It was more like a subsurface urge to capture my musings when I noticed calendar reached a particular date.
Now, nine years later, I'm still at it and covering a wide range of thoughts, observations, and opinions. Except for one entry, I wrote on November 3, 2012. I have avoided politics and politicians.
The idea for an entry usually starts when somehting crosses my mind then gets stuck rather than moving on. Due to my persona, lots of varied things seem to wander through my brain. I started out writing about riding and my dog MacBeth, you will notice many entries feature both MacBeth and Falkor.
I also went to Kuwait for 18 months and talked a lot about living there, I was even there for one of the worst rains in recent memory. But then the next year, I spent distracted -- damn you, Mark Zuckerberg.
I discussed my Dad, adventrues in mail order, and the dawning of home voice devices.
Over the years, I reviewed movies, talked about TV shows and tons of concerts including finally getting to see Lynyrd Skynyrd live. I also talked about new music I discovered and great comedy too. I spoke about music’s effect on me and even though Linda remains one of my favorites, why Joan and I will always be a thing.
After taking some time off to finish writing it, I talked about my latest novel, to include details on the cover design.
Lots of entries -- almost 300, lots of readers --over 168K from all over the world, lots of words from lots of thoughts.
Proud to say my blog continues to be
The thoughts and musings of a man at the precipice of middle age, starting from his 50th birthday.
