I'd rather be judged on the basis of my posts than anything written in my bio.
It's put down and gathered as a record of my experience and a response to what I see as the important issues in the world today. I don't pretend it's anything other than subjective.
The purpose is to analyse, interpret, express opinions, challenge the status quo, open a few doors, and entertain when the muse permits.
I heartily welcome ratings, comments and dialogue as that is what makes this media unique and valuable. It also keeps me honest and encouraged since I'm not getting paid. Take a risk and say something; it feels better.
The "conversation" is essential for the growth of the individual and the collective. I have faith it extends beyond the confines of what is said here.
"For it is necessary for awake people to be awake, or a breaking line may discourge us back to sleep, the signals we give--yes, no or maybe--should be clear: the darkness around us is deep."
