This blog is a place where my family and friends can go to check on my current condition. If I am posting, they know that I am alive! and coherent enough to string a few ideas together. For myself, designing a unique website and creating blog posts is a fun, free, and creative hobby. And sharing blogs with others enables me to meet interesting strangers with wise and hilarious thoughts who live in places that I will never be.
Here is a heavily illustrated argument that the Loch Ness monster is a descendent of the elephants in the army that Hannibal lead across western Europe. In contrast with the explanation that the Loch Ness monster is a dinosaur dislocated in time, a simpler, more realistic, and surprisingly plausible explanation is one of an elephant dislocated geographically.
I found this setting up my new blogs. I’ve seen optical illusions before, but this one is the best that I’ve seen.
“Are blogs important? Worth reading? Worth writing? Are we just nostalgic for the fact that we got an “A” in creative writing back in the day?” When we write in blogs are we being extremely productive at an activity that is important?
After experimenting with writing within a single blog for several years now, I’ve decided that that strategy doesn’t work for me. What I have observed watching other people’s blogs is that their blogs work best when they stay relatively focused. So I am parting out this blog. My hope is that, like cars, the sum worth of the parts will be greater than this whole.
“It takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!”
I am a warrior… I am not concerned with pleasure.
I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope,
for hope would be hope for the wrong thing…
