So, here it is, my first blog post on this site. I bet you're wondering what I'll blog about. To tell you the truth, so do I. There are good, established sites out there that probably discourage this approach, but since writing anything and everything helps a person's creativity, I'll be writing about many different and seemingly random topics. Rest assured that these topics will probably end up in a creative project somewhere down the line. We learn and grow from doing, and if we waited until we were ready, it would never happen.
The other day I walked outside and saw two geese flying overhead on their way to the lake. They were making a lot of noise. Since it was so late in the day, I figured they were arguing with each other about who was to blame for their late arrival. Maybe they got lost. Maybe one of them was a late riser. Maybe someone forgot to set the alarm after staying out all night at some goose party. Hmm... that sounds worse than I meant it to.
Another random story, I was heating some leftover dinner rolls in the toaster but they didn't come up all the way. Naturally, I grabbed a sharp knife and went fishing trying not to touch the sides of the toaster since I never unplugged it. As i was doing this, I thought about the game Operation and wondered if this was how it was created. Toasters have been around for a long time, I believe longer than the game. Maybe the guy who invented it shocked himself and the game came to him when he recovered and now it trains others how to fish things out of the toaster with sharp objects.
So that's the kind of randomness you're in for with my blog. It'll no doubt grow and change and perhaps find some sort of purpose, or it'll forever stay the same, who knows.
Here's to new beginnings.
