Politically incorrect and not afraid to tell you what I think. Have been asked why I don’t run for office but with all the skeletons in my closet I think I will stay on the citizen journalist side of the political fray. Maybe something I say through these and other pages will stick, perhaps even make it into the stream of consciousness of our national conversation and change direction of even one persons thinking. Before you read to far though, just so we are clear I am a Progressive Democrat, a lifelong Liberal, one of those terrible Social Democrats; whatever you want to call me is fine just don’t call me a Right-Wing Conservative though you might find some of my thinking isn’t necessarily aligned with my more progressive friends on the Left.
There was a time when my dream was to grow old so I could sit on my porch and yell at the kids across my yard while I shake my cane at them. Now? Well, lets just say my dreams have changed. I would prefer not to grow old, though I suspect I will fail at stopping time entirely. I would prefer I think to remain vital, active and even perhaps not quite so crotchety as the old woman in my original fantasy. Now I have a dream of growing old more gracefully; shaking my pointer at a chalkboard and stuffing young and eager minds full of useful information I have gained through a lifetime of living.
I am a seeker after my own truths. I don’t claim to know the truth about anything but my own life and my own experiences. I would never insult you by proselytizing or patronizing, I will however tell you what I think about religion and its impact on society. If you are insulted, I apologize in advance but suffice it to say I remain unrepentant in my search for the truth and in this search I continue to challenge standards and social structures.
I write about what I know and what I am interested in. The range of my interests is broad from society, marriage, relationships, politics, history and religion to the occasional off-ramp into work, specifically the work I do. I am a consultant, a project manager working the technology industry. I work for myself and spend most of my time away from home. I know how to get through airports, find the best restaurants, get the best hotel rooms, find the best deals and battle airlines when they lose your luggage. I also know a few things about the work I do.
Bottom line? In past times, were I a man I might have been referred to as a Renaissance Man now I will just have to the QBG! I will let you sort that one out for yourself.
