This is my first adventure into the world of blogging.  I guess I should explain why I chose to blog in the first place.  Well, I have decided that I have a highly unusual need to express myself  ALOT and quite frankly, I have worn out any ears that were willing to listen.  I think most of what I have to say is important, thoughtful and maybe even insightful but then again, I admit, I think I’m pretty special.  Hey, when you get to my age, it’s okay to think that! After all, pretty soon, most of my family and friends might even start forgetting I exist.  We are not getting any younger it seems.  So why not be my own best friend and if you are gonna have one, she outta be special. 

I like the idea of having a place to show off all the stuff I think is pretty neat.  Some is my stuff (like the pictures that will be the background for my header) some is random stuff I have recently discovered and some is stuff from my family and friends.   I also like the idea that I might have something worthwhile to teach and others can come here to learn.  I hope to have all kinds of tutorials.   I have many interests and I try to become an expert in all of them and yes, I think I do a pretty good job of that as well.  The journey that is my life is full of changes and so I have had to adapt, alot.  Now, I know you may be thinking that everyone’s journey is full of changes, but I disagree.  Some people seem to go through life and lead a pretty steady course, while others like myself seem to leap off into things only to find out that;  a) it wasn’t a good place to leap;  b) the most important people in my life haven’t lept with me;  c) it was cool at the time, but even I got bored sooner or later.   Because of all this leaping, I have a lot of experiences and as I said before, I just gotta share.  

So, if you are still with me, better get a cup of whatever you like and relax a bit.  I tend to ramble and then again, if you are reading this, you are either the curious type or you need help.  I happen to know some good therapists if you are the latter type.  I plan to post often, but I must warn you, I am one of those people who’s annual journals start out with daily outpourings and then get spotty for a bit and then pick up pace around the thaw  and then it can either be a flurry during the early summer or dry as a bone.  Kinda like the weather here in North Idaho.  Come along Fall, my favorite time of year, I think its because according to the jewish calendar, it is another beginning, which you will soon discover is what really makes me tick.  I LOVE do overs!  I’m not Jewish, that I know of, but somethings pertaining to the culture just resonate within me.  Anyway, around Fall, I feel the need to purge and plan and I get really excited until mid November when I have worn myself out and need to just focus all my energy to make it through the Holidays. 

Well, so there you have it.  Why I have lept into blogging in as small a nutshell as I can manage.  I am sure that once I hit send or whatever you hit to get these words to appear, I will think of a ton of other things to say.  Most likely, I will post another post pretty soon to continue the explanation and then again, I might get so busy tweaking this thing and trying to become an expert blogger that I won’t write a word for a day or so.  Of this I am sure, I will always keep you guessing, at least I will try. 

Until then, May the Lord keep you and bless you.
