Return of 'the blog'!

Sounds a bit like a sequel to a monster movie, doesn't it?

I am about to embark on a new journey with two dear friends and collaborators - a web series! As such, I thought it was time to revive this blog. It has been some time coming, as more than a few Facebook friends have told me they enjoyed the blog and wanted to see more.

I don't really know why I stopped. I think people of my generation still find it a tad self-indulgent to talk about ourselves. I know I constantly ask myself why anyone cares about what I have done or what I am about to do. However, I now look at it not as necessarily being about me, but more about the quirks of the life and career I've chosen. I have just been an observer; albeit, an interested one.

One of the things that has gotten in my way in this blog is the fog of time. Trying to create a chronological order has been difficult - what really happened in what order? This sometimes addled mind is not always clear on exact dates or what happened first.

In order to continue the journey, I am going to restart the blog with the understanding that the exact order of the events may, from this point on, be a little shakey. I sincerely doubt that I will ever reach the level of noteriety to have an official biographer, but should that day come, I will let that person do the harder research.

The blog will continue with an emphasis on the journey, an emphasis on those mileposts that stood out, rather than each rock and stone along the way.

I will try to keep to my original idea, which is to avoid names when a situation was less than positive, and make sure to include them when deserved. I am not much for "tell-all", and no one I've worked with or encountered deserves to be dealt with in that manner here.

Thanks for your patience, and welcome back!
