Welcome, welcome! I’m excited to launch this new venture, and I’m looking forward to where it will take us all. I welcome comments and discussion, so long as it remains respectful and kind. I have a lot to say of my own, but I want to hear what you have to say, too!
I talk about a wide range of topics – literally anything that catches my interest. And that’s pretty much everything. I love learning, I’m always studying some subject or other, and I love how far it can take me. I am also passionate about a lot of things, and I am very vocal on those passions. My mind is always turning, coming up with new thoughts and ideas, whether it be a business venture or musing over the latest hot button topic.
I am a journalist at heart, and in light of that, I value the truth above all else. I recognize that true, objective journalism is something of a lost art, but just because much of our media has become so biased doesn’t mean I have to be. We all have our bias, but by continually challenging my own and those around me, I believe we can move beyond our bias to truly make a difference.
I am also an optimist and an idealist. I’m not naive, I know how the world works, and I know its evils and downfalls – but I refuse to accept it as the end game. I don’t believe the way things are is the way they have to be. We can make a change, and it starts with communication. For that reason, I love dialog and open discussion, and I like to challenge different points of view – sometimes as a devil’s advocate, but mostly to explore where my own views lie.
All of this makes for quite a roller coaster ride, but if you like a thrill, jump on! Or, even if you fancy yourself a lurker who doesn’t want to engage, check in when you like, and maybe I can give you something to think about on your own time.
Cheers, and here’s a toast to good learning and exploring together!
