Welcome to my new blog

Dear Friends:
I am delighted to welcome you to my new blog. I must say that had I been more than only sufficiently computer literate, I believe that I would have started blogging many years earlier. In fact, I think that my reticence to start blogging, primarily on account of my lack of savvy, was only masked by silly proclamations like the fact that I didn't like the word "blog". I often thought to myself, "how could I engage in such an activity called by a word that is more suited to a pit that one falls into and gets mummified for future generations to dissect and analyze?!" Well, anyway, whatever you call it - weblog, or blog, or simply a "new forum to share ideas" (NFTSI) - it can only come to good. Well, anyway, I have often hoped to share some of my ideas in a more efficient forum than those I already have access to. And perhaps now, my blog will help in that endeavor.

So, if you have not arrived here by way of my website,, please view that first and then come back here to share in my musings. Oh, and incidentally, it seems only fitting that the blog template I am using (provided by Google) is called "scribe". You will no doubt come to know my connections with ancient literature, manuscripts, and scribal activity if I don't bore you to distraction before you get that far.

Blessings to you all,
