How I wish my profile pic looked.
Stuff clangs around in my head.
Why? Because I’m an INTJ.
This is a place to get my thoughts into the light of day where they can become uncluttered, critiqued, and developed into useful ideas.
I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.” – Flannery O’Connor.
Some might find the topics here a little eclectic for their tastes. Others might think, “Finally hope! I am not alone.”
And another thing! I am not optimizing this blog for SEO or anything really. I do that all day long in the real world for clients. This is the anti-that approach. Doing it on this site would give me tired-head. So I’m thinking you pretty much tripped and fell into this site like Alice.
Whatever my thoughts, I will strive to write with a tone of love and respect, even when critiquing, so that I don’t become another cymbal clanging out meaningless communication in an already noisy world (I Corinthians 13) . Here is a bit more about some things that make my neurons fire more rapidly . . .
