Yawp!

With a barbaric, “Yawp!” I begin this blog. For what is the point of being without making oneself known? We live in a world full of people, creating, living, aspiring. Whether you believe it is by design or by the fortuitous though inevitable happenstance of nature, we are crafted more for company than for solitude.
In writing this and in all of the words that have not yet occurred to me, I am striking out to meet you. I will write about what I am reading, what I am doing, and what I observe. My friends and family will play their roles. And I will pontificate, I’m sure. My blog will sometimes become a little overgrown and untended, as there is a world outside of the box on my desk, and there are as many ways to find community as there are people.
Connect. Meet a friend for coffee. Talk with a stranger. Write something. Read something. This is why we are.

Dear E.R.

Thanks for your thoughtful comment on Interscape.
Welcome to the world of blogging. The old bard would have loved this technology but there is something to be said for the tangible. I once held a first edition of "Leaves of Grass," a thrilling moment.
Hoping that your Yawp range far & wide--
