Born and raised in small town, Virginia, I have since lived all over the world
So began my original ‘about me’ blurb. As I think about the idea of living in the moment, it occurs to me that the purpose of an ‘about me’ page is to help you fit me into a category that you can (or perhaps cannot) relate to. But everything I might put here to help you pigeon-hole me exists in the past. It may be true that past experiences shape us and make us what we are at any given moment, but if that is true, then the very act of typing this page is changing me even now. Giving you the opportunity to categorize me based on my past would not just be less than helpful, it would be dishonest on my part. I am not my past anymore than you are yours.
I considered taking down all of my old blog posts too, but decided to leave those for you to peruse as you wish. Just know that they are a record of my evolution and not representative of what I may think/believe/be at any given moment going forward.
Six years ago I began this blog for the purpose of thinking out loud. Thanks to Kyle Cease, I now want to (as Kyle puts it) “evolve out loud”. I hope you will join me, but I understand if evolving is not your cuppa tea.
I love a great conversation and welcome your comments, and I hope you’ll at least feel free to think out loud with me. Please be aware that personal attacks towards me or any of my readers will be deleted. And do me the honor of acknowledging your source if you wish to copy any of my work.
Many thanks for reading!
Peace, Love, and Light,
