The Starting Point

I’m not certain what this was intended to be…but  I know what I want it to be.  It’s to be an eclectic mess of ideas, happenings, politics, books, films, television, food, booze, nature, the environment and whatever makes me feel good or pisses me off, what gives me hope and what leads me to despair…a dog’s breakfast of ideas, events and issues…an olla podrida, a salmagundi, a gallimaufry,a hodgepodge.  A place to celebrate, communicate and vent.  A place to share things that may be interesting or useful or different.

So my mission statement is that I don’t have a mission other than to write, record, photograph and video things.  Sometimes I’m overwhelmed by the beauty of things and I’m keen to share them.  I’m old enough to know that I’m not going to change the world but am too stubborn not to try.  I’m old enough to know you can’t dictate to people what to think but would be satisfied with people just thinking.

So this is my first entry.  It’s abstract and loose.  It’s a start.
