I had a whole page written about why I am writing, and what kinds of interactions are acceptable here. But it’s really simple. I’m human. I’m going to make mistakes and get things wrong, even though I’m not going to try to do that. I’ll probably offend people too.
And like so many of us, I have spent a lot of my life worrying about what people think. But the problem with worrying is that not only does it not actually tell you what they think, it also prevents you from improving their impression! So I will do my best not to worry about impressions here, but just do the best I can to communicate well.
One of my passions in life is learning. I love to learn, and I also love to pass on that learning to others. And very simply put, that’s what this is about. Because once upon a time, I wanted to write. And I started to write. And I realized how very little I really knew about life. So I set out to learn as much as I could – only to realize I had far more to learn than I first knew.
Eventually I realized I could either go ahead and write what I do know, or give up on my dream.
I’m not fond of giving up.
So here we are, in a place created so I could share some things I’ve learned. And most likely, I’ll learn more along the way.
Maybe you can too. Welcome.
