Sometimes I write essays. And sometimes I get up onstage and read them in public places… sometimes with tens of people watching. And then there are tens of other people who wish that they could have come to see, but just couldn’t make it, and would love to read what I wrote. And then sometimes I make them copies or email the essays. And sometimes someone will ask if I have a blog. And when I say that I don’t, they are sometimes surprised and tell me that I should start one. So here it is.
