I’m a writer, a reader, a traveler and a teacher. In this blog you’ll find my thoughts on everything from place to identity to philosophy to literature. I’ve found that writing, journaling, photographing, and sharing thoughts and ideas with others is the best way to make sense of this world that confuses me so. Know that after everything I say there should be placed an implied question mark. At least, in my head, when I form a sentence, when I say “yes” or “no,” when I give advice, when I proffer an opinion (solicited or not), always in my head I attach a question mark to the end of my statement. Because I’m filled with uncertainty, because I don’t know the answers to most questions, because I know that my opinions more often derive from the life I’ve lived and the experiences I’ve had than from detached reasoning. I don’t know that anything I say will be correct, or that it will change anyone’s mind or improve anyone’s life. So I attach a question mark. Such is the tone of my thought and often of my words (?). And when my words sound certain, it’s because I’m using techniques I’ve acquired from countless teachers, authors, friends, acquaintances, and strangers. I’m trying to sound persuasive. Keep that in mind. Most of all I want to have a dialogue with you, so please share your thoughts. I value what you have to say, and I promise to respond to your ideas.
Let’s share some memes. 🙂
