New Beginnings

My last blog entry was dated August 16, 2011.

I have had an 11 month rest from writing on more or less a daily basis and for many reasons have decided to try daily entries here again.

Some things in life are cycles. We are entranced with an idea or an activity and it occupies our minds. Then life intervenes and the idea or activity fades into the background but if it was the right idea or the right activity it never really leaves. And sometimes it can come back in a rush.  The motivators for my renewed interest in writing this blog are part of that cycle.

I write this blog so that I can express myself to those who care and those who find my writing interesting.

I don't think I will ever be as accomplished or interesting as some of the bloggers I follow but I am sure someone out there is interested in the thoughts and experiences of someone like me. At one point I had a fairly regular following according to the 'hits' meter.

One challenge will be to figure out how this new system works - the dashboard looks nothing like the one I used at the beginning. I'll figure it out. Bear with me.

I have many things to catch up with. Family, work, travel, people, ideas and grandchildren!!
