I started this blog in September 2011 as a writing exercise.
That was seven years ago. I have written almost every day since, yet have posted very little online.
I do not feel that I have discovered “my writer’s voice”, but by now, a few patterns have emerged.
This blog was originally entitled The Millennialist.
I wanted to have fun with a few themes:
1) – A Millennial – “a person born after 1980 and the first to come of age in the new millennium.” (Pew Research Center). That’s me.
2) – A Millennialist – my completely made-up definition for “a person who takes the view of a thousand years – or the long view”.
If you Google the word “millennialist”, you will find some interesting results about the end of the world. I am not an expert in that short of thing.
If you have found this blog looking for information on apocalypses, I hope you will stay long enough to treat yourself to these short, lyric essays about old books, poetry, and life. It is sure to make you feel better than total annihilation.
Much has changed in seven years. The planet still wobbles defiantly on its axis. Nothing – personally nor globally – looks as I thought it would.
Yet, I am still alive. Still traveling. Still reading and writing. Still doing the best I can.
I am going to write small vignettes on things that stand out to me and see where it goes.
I will describe what I see as best I can.
The interpretation is up to you.
