I never wanted to blog before now. I think of blogs as exhibitionist platforms providing more information than I typically want to know. Now is different. My circumstances have changed and I want a way to keep in touch with anyone who wants to follow how I'm doing. If the blogging format is new to you, you'll see that entries on this page are stored in reverse chronological order, newest postings first at the top of the page. To follow the whole evolving thread from the beginning, go to the archives below where links to the oldest entries are stored first.
