I'm Starting A Blog

Updated: Aug 11

I do a lot of communicating in the world by video. But I'm realizing that oftentimes, I need to slow down and get my thoughts down and out of my head. My mouth can move much more closely to the speed of my thoughts and feelings than my writing. And that, believe it or not, is a problem. Writing provides a much-needed limiter. It helps me slow down enough to think about what I want to think about. It helps me organize my thoughts, put them together, and gives me a place to see them, let them roll around for a bit, so that I can finally get them out.

It's part of my processing... sort of like journaling.

I don't know what I'm going to write about or how often I'll write something, but I imagine it will be based on events going on in the world and how they relate to my life and my experience.

Perhaps I'll do some video blog posts too!

This could be fun.

This could ben an alternative to facebook, where I'm constantly distracted by what everyone else is busy saying.

This blog is primarily for me.

But I'll also tell you this... it helps me to know that it's being published publicly. Something about that changes it for me. It gives it a level of accountability that it doesn't have when it's just me writing in my journal. It's good. Positive. Helpful. So for anyone out there reading it... thank you for being there. Hell - you don't even have to read it, just the idea that you might is powerful for me.

So... let's do this. Blog entry number one. Let's see where this goes!


Never stop laughing.
