Personal Growth

Blank Slate

There’s nothing like sitting down to a fresh, clean piece of paper and starting a project.  Everything is possible, the world is at your feet.  Once a mark is made, it’s a choice, and the project will never be pristine again.

In an insomnia-fueled late night introspective fit, I decided to wipe all my blogs and internet projects clean and start over.  I’ve had at least one web presence on the internet since the late 1990’s, and all of them were full of junk.  In my offline world, I’m engaged in a long term project to de-clutter, clean, and streamline my life.  My physical space is getting cleaned out, I’m reducing the amount of crap I’m dragging around.  It seemed only fitting that I’d do the same for my online life.

So here I sit at my fresh, new, clean blog and think… what exactly am I trying to accomplish here, what am I trying to say?  What will be my first mark on the clean page, my first choice down this new path?

I can’t predict where this new start will end up, but that’s what life is all about, right?

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”  — Hunter S. Thompson
