And thus the blog was born.

It sits here, one among billions.

Feel free to swing by and check it out whenever the urge arises. I can’t promise that it will be updated daily. In fact, I won’t promise that at all. Let’s hope for a weekly engagement, shall we? Between the site, my day job, travel, writing and small clutches of nano-sleep, my priorities have got to settle somewhere. I’m sure you understand.
