This blog has several functions, or a definite “Telos“. The first of which is to give me a place to write, and to practice my writing. Sometimes the purpose of these pennings may be creative writing; at other times they may leap into poetry; occasionally, prose. My musings will usually be unrefined – a first draft, if you will – but will always be something to which I have given critical and copious thought. I will muse upon various topics, respond to current events, ponder and dissect new view points for my own and others’ edification.
I will likely wax philosophic, as that is a favorite hobby, though I rarely have the patience necessary to copiously transcribe my lengthy mental arguments and rigorous proofs. I will usually speak in the first person. I will ask questions, attempt to persuade, argue, debate, cajole, and otherwise attempt to engage the occasional reader who perchance may stumble across these stream-of-consciousness writings, and may perhaps glean some value from what I have penned here. I will probably say many things with which you vehemently disagree. Hopefully you will still respect the points and proofs I offer, even if you disagree with my conclusions.
Please feel free to respond with your honest feelings and thoughts. Let us dialog.
In Sum, This is a place for my creative writing, persuasive arguments, philosophic musings, and other such literary nonsense. It will be filled with observations, critiques, and much hyperbole. It is an ivory tower – safe from reality, full of arm-chair and fireside musings. Lets us light a cigar, and pour ourselves a chilled bourbon (no ice) as we nestle deeper in our smoking jackets and wait out this rainy weather.
