I created this blog in response to the complaints of some of my misinformed friends who refuse to join Facebook. I get it — Facebook is no longer cool and there’s a lot of advertising and political nonsense posted there. But it’s the best and easiest way to keep updated on the people about whom I care.

I digress.

In any case, I’m about to embark on an epic misadventure and I want to document it in a place where people can see my brilliant photographs, read my witty and insightful writing and share in the soaring highs and desperate battles that characterize my life.

That’s all nonsense, of course. But I hope that if you’ve found your way here, you will enjoy some of the content and you are not an assassin using this blog to locate me. In the latter case, please know that I paid extra to hide my home address. So there.
