OK. So, here's a confession.

Blogging scares me.

It's not that I can't write down my thoughts. Or that I can't will myself to the computer. It's just that blogs are right and left and crazy with opinions. We all have readers out there lerking in the shadows desperate for a sliver of a bias -- which we all have, but are loathe to admit --  and I hate to give them any ammunition.

Or is that just my readers?

LOL.

Anyway, here's me... writing a blog.
