Well after years on the Internet, I guess it is obligatory that I jump into the blogisphere with both feet. Why you ask? I am not really sure but I figured 'if I created it, the words will come'.
Well, that remains to be seen....
But in any case, welcome to what will be the ramblings of my mind. I will probably not be posting here on any kind of regular basis -- I have this need for what appears here to have some intrinsic value -- but if I have anything to say, this is the place where it will be posted.
Who am I? I am a Software Engineer, Systems Designer, and Web Developer who has spent the last 30 years developing software applications for companies, customers, schools, and the government sector. I am a husband. I am a father of three great children. I am a lifelong Episcopalian. I love music, photography, science fiction, mystery/action/military novels, movies, and having fun. I am a Youth Minister. I am an American. I am an African American, I am just a guy with a beard.
Hang around here for a while and perhaps you will get an insight into my thoughts, dreams, observations, struggles, joys, and beliefs. "Life's like a box of chocolates. Ya never know whatcha gonna get" about sums it up.
Comments are welcome. Tasteful, funny, constructive, insightful, relevant comments only please. I would prefer the dialog to be healthy and in no need of 'editorial mediation'.
So stay tuned, subscribe if you feel so inclined. Maybe I will surprise you with my ramblings.
