The Leap.

I’ve always considered myself a writer, though I haven’t actually written much. It’s the telling of a story, spinning that tale out to perfection so that the delivery is as much the thing as the tale itself, that ever draws me to it.

For years people have told me I MUST write. But here I am, setting out on that bit of my adventure for the first time in a directed way. It’s exciting. It’s daunting. But mostly, I think it’s a natural result of the profound joy I find in connecting with people coupled with my fervor for conveying a true event in such a way that I illicit the most amount of laughter possible!

So here, in this little corner of the cyber-universe, I will share my tales of glee and woe, wanderings and stagnation, adventure and boredom, making sure to point out the silly and absurd in it all whenever possible. And I’m pretty sure it’s nearly always possible.

Occasionally I may grab a soapbox and climb up on it, or regale you with the ecstasy of a great book recently read, or rave/rant about a sporting event, or go on ad infinitum about some favorite British TV series, or give a bit too much detail about training for a race, or shower you with my geek fascination in the form of scifi, or gush about an inspiring friend… but in all that I will always look for our commonalities than bind us, and most of all find what is delightful in the situations and people that I experience and encounter. Life is, in all it’s complexities, a magnificent thing. I want to revel in it!

As for the friends that have encouraged, prodded, and inspired me to (finally) do this… YOU ASKED FOR IT!
