To begin

I have owned this blog for a while now, but I’ve struggled with how and where to begin. I have all the confidence of a small prey mammal in a bare field beneath a flock of hawks. This inhibits much of my creativity and always has.

Though timidity often has me strapped down, I realize that I really need to try and press on. The encouragement of family, professors, publishers, friends, and my wife tell me that I’m capable. I just need to squirm free and run.

So, here I go. This might be one hell of a sprint into the safety of rocks beyond this empty expanse or it will just be a tragedy in which a certain mouse boy becomes raptor food. I guess we’ll see. I hope you find some enjoyment here either way.
