I have a lot of thoughts.
I think and/or worry about this country's political issues, my religious opinions, my future, my past, my creative writing, my technical writing, etc.
As the quote at the top above points out, I am not alone. I am not the first person to have many of these thoughts, nor will I be the last. In fact, when I express my feelings on a subject, a quick search on Google usually reveals that someone else has already written about similar thoughts and expressed them in a much more eloquent manner.
That has left me at a loss for words as of late. If my thoughts and concerns have already been written down with more finesse than I could muster, what am I to do? At the worst I will misconstrue my point and come across the fool, while at best I will simply be writing a long winded piece that could be summed up by me providing a link to the better constructed article and adding, "For my opinion on the matter, see the link!"
The one thing I know I can write about is the things in my life that matter to me. Perhaps I've overreached with my goals in previous iterations of this digital journal. I'm not really on here to express world changing opinions. I'm here to document the man that is me. This means I have to write about all the things, the good, the bad, and the particularly uninteresting.
So I'm making a promise to myself as I write this. I promise that I will write. I will write because I have a thousand upon ten thousand thoughts in my mind. Writing lets me, quite literally, spell these thoughts out and clear my head for the next big thing.
I may not have a particular viewing audience and that's okay. This is a personal experience for me. I want to write so that it is written. I'm not going to change the world with my blog. I'm not trying to, either.
I don't know what kind or how many posts will come next. One, ten, perhaps even none! What I can tell you is that they will be my thoughts recorded on this digital vellum.
Deep thoughts be with you,
