I have been toying with the idea of writing a blog. I have been hampered by the fact that I dislike the term "Blog," feel that "blogging" is a narcissistic exercise, and that I may not have anything to say, worthwhile or otherwise.
When I was on The Bucket Trip in 2013, I wrote "Dispatches" to keep my adoring fans aware of what was happening in my life and n my trip. I like that word better, because it makes me think I'm Ernie Pyle or Edward R. Murrow, sans cigarettes. Pimply-faced Millenials write blogs. Not this old curmudgeon. Dispatches it is.
So we're going to give it a try. Early morning ramblings, I hope, as coffee sinks in and the world out my window goes from dark to light.
Now it's up to me to have the self-discipline to do it, and keep gumption from leaking out all over the floor. We'll see. Stay tuned.
