A Blank Slate

It's been a hell of a year. I felt that I might not make it through 2014 at times, but nevertheless here we are in 2015. Among the many personal tragedies, small and large, of 2014 TextDrive finally went under after dangerously listing for years. Along with it went my blog and its archives from around 2003 or so. Unfortunately 2014 also saw the demise of several hard drives upon which resided the backups of said blog. Which to be honest is probably for the best. One can only hope that there are no copies floating around the internet.

So, here we are, a new year and a new blog. A blank slate so to speak. Glorious white space–comprised of ones and zeros–waiting to be defaced, enlivened, and brought to life with words.

I can’t promise you that I will write well, but I can promise that I will write. So come back often. Find a comfortable spot. Perhaps a nice, overstuffed, old chair, or tucked under the covers  illuminated by the warm glow of your phone, or even outside on a sunny day resting your head on the soft ground beneath an old shade tree. Bring a good drink. Or two. Sit back and enjoy the ride. I know I will.
