Why I Write:
Hello? Is this thing on?
Lord, have mercy. What am I doing?
Well, what I'm attempting to do is to write a blog. Writing has always been a way for me to capture my eclectic thoughts on how I view the world. It's a strange place sometime and, the way I figure it, I might be good for a laugh, cry, or just plain diversion. I've written a blog off and on for a few years and we'll see how it goes getting back in the saddle.
I also took a swing at writing my first book, Confessions of a Suburban Cowboy, back in 2012. When I made that decision and sat down to start working on it, my cursor blinked vacantly on my screen for approximately thirty minutes. It was as if some electronic cyclops was mocking me - daring me to write interesting and witty words. What had I gotten myself into? Immediately, self doubt gnawed at my brain and hatched a million questions such as:
...and that's where I became really worried. Would my friends read my writing and decide to hold an intervention for me? That seems to still be up for debate.
So I decided to write the book...and bring back the blog.
There really is no centralized theme. Just my random playlist and musings of things that I observe in life. I write blogs and books. So, if someone who writes a book is an author and someone that writes a blog is a blogger, I guess the combination would make me a ...booger.
Most people that have known me for years would argue that I've been a booger all my life.
I'm humbled that people have asked for more.
What you will find here: Possible riveting conversations about why I consider turkey & dressing a national treasure, my love of old school everything, and the time I considered either placing my Baptist daughters in the convent or selling them to gypsies.
What you will not find here: If you are looking for hard-hitting edgy political arguments, you might want to mosey on down the road. The most controversial discourse you may find here could be a heated debate on the merits of brisket vs. pulled pork barbecue.
Thanks for stopping by. Pull up a chair, sit a spell, and slow your roll for the time being.
