My life, my thoughts, opinions and memories are the sole source and inspiration for this blog. What I write here comes from deep inside of me and is as true, authentic and accurate as is possible for a person to commit to written word.

My reason for creating this blog is solely for my own literary and quasi-therapeutic purposes and, as such, I am mindful that my own personal choice to do this should have no impact on any other person beyond allowing them to see through a window into my mind.

I am committed to ensuring that as far as the information I'm sharing goes, I will not betray confidences or disclose any personal information about anyone else in the process of compiling this quasi-memoir.

As I have noted elsewhere, I will not use my real name in this blog primarily because by maintaining a thin facade of anonymity it is easier for me to open up and express myself naturally and honestly.
