History is Made

All blogs must have a first post, and so, by default, this is mine.

I'm sure that as time goes by, my blog will decide what it wants to be when it grows up, so I'm not even going to formulate or broadcast any "mission" or purpose for this endeavor. I only hope that it might turn out to be of interest to a few people besides me. Hell, I hope it's of interest to ME!

In fact, convincing myself that it serves any other purpose than as a complete vanity may take some doing. I suppose that time will only arrive when another person is somehow helped by something they encounter here, if that's not too high-minded. For now it will have to serve mainly as an outlet for me to say things that I think about, or worry about, or wonder about, that would otherwise just rattle around in my head. Better they should rattle around here, I figure.

There may well be the occasional contradiction, as above when I decided not to get into a "mission", and then set about to do just that. In any case, this was really just to see if I could get the darned thing to post at all. I'm a blog virgin about to be deflowered by pressing the "publish" button. Hold on tight.
