A Retrospective

Is it too early? It’s barely been a year and a half.

I am currently, shall we say, gathering data in Terra incognita.

Rather than rush to publish a few posts that aren’t quite ready, I thought I’d take the chance to highlight a few from the past seventeen months or so.

Writing a blog feels a lot like practicing a musical instrument with the door open.

You try to focus on the sound and the music, while imagining people wandering by muttering:  “Isn’t he getting better at that yet?” Or “He’s still making that mistake?”

Blogging is a process of learning and thinking in public.  After nearly a year and a half, I’m more proud of some posts than others.

Here are a few of the posts that hint at ideas I’ll be building on in the coming year:

It is a good idea to bring up some old posts. I have not been blogging very long and it bothers me that I do a good post and then in a day it is gone. I mean I know it isn’t really gone but it no longer is focused on and just gets stumbled upon. It seem to be such a waste sometimes. I have my favorites too. Great idea. Thanks
