This blog and site have been a long time in coming, and now that the time is here, I’m honestly having a hard time determining how best to launch it. So I guess I just will.
I’ve always had diverse interests, and these are reflected in my writings. And many of those writings, and interests, are reflected on this site. On the one hand there are essays on political, economic, social, and other topics. But I’m also interested in business, and that interest is reflected here, too. And sometimes I just like to goof around with my writing. You’ll probably find some evidence of that, in time.
The postings on this blog are going to reflect my different interests, too, and if any of the topics interest you, as I hope they will, I invite you to stop back and see what my latest take is on them.
There is something else you should know, too. While my writings are not to be pigeon-holed, neither am I. I call things as I see them, and I don’t adhere to any one political persuasion, and my social views are my own. You may or may not agree with what I have to say – there’s at least an even chance you won’t – but that’s okay. You’re welcome to your own views and to express them (reasonably!) in your comments.
My background expresses my approach to life, and I’ve been a journalist, PR and marketing practitioner, diplomat, businessperson, writer, and general roust-about. I’ve lived in several states around the U.S. and, as of this writing, eight other countries. I don’t suffer tedium well.
If I had to describe myself, I tend toward being libertarian. The way I interpret that is that I am a fiscal and Constitutional conservative and a social radical.
I also write fiction, and I hope you’ll check out my fiction site, Stoned Cherry, too. That’s a whole other animal, and perhaps you’ll find both sites interesting and worth following.
I’ll do my best to keep this blog alive and active. I don’t promise a specific posting schedule, and some weeks I might post two or three times, other weeks more, or less. When I have something to say, I’ll say it. And just so you know, I often have something to say.
