Mission Statement

So why am I here? What's my purpose? I think it's taken me half a year to write another post because I want so badly to explain, specifically, my intent for putting yet another blog into the web. But what I realize is that I'm trying too hard to box myself in, which is stunting my ability to hit "publish" on any of my ideas.

The truth is, I don't have it all worked out, and I'm going to force myself to be comfortable with the blurry lines. It's not a story with a beginning, middle, and end, but rather an ongoing discussion, and I'm allowing it evolve into whatever it needs to be. I want to understand myself better, and where I fit into this marvelous and terrifying and beautiful planet. I want to share the way I see what's happening in this world, through my own unique filter, for whatever that may be worth. It's about culture, personal development, politics, art, religion, music, science, crocheted anatomy, monsters made of spaghetti...these are just a few of the nodes in my web of life, and while it may seem broad, perhaps it has to be.

This will be the sounding board for my ideas, and maybe you'll take part of the conversation, too. So let's do this already.
