I write. While that by itself does not make me unique in any way, something about the way I do it does take my breath way every time I think about it. I am not talking about any great merit on my own part of course, but instead, of the times I live and work in.
A century ago, there were people like me. They wrote words to express, entertain and to communicate. Their biggest worry was not that someone would copy their work and pass it on as his or her own. They worried instead about how — if they failed to find a publisher or, at the very least, a printer — no one will ever be able to read what they had written.
Today, thanks to the web, I do not have to worry about such matters. Instead, I can devote myself to the words themselves — opinion, explanation, communication — and be assured that they will find their way to you, my reader.
Therefore, with much enthusiasm, welcome to these pages. There is at least one book’s worth of reading material here and the bulk of it keeps increasing with time. Browse around, read, and drop me a line if you have something to say.
