Happy New Year 2017
New years seems like a good time to start new goals, or recommit ourselves to old goals that have been set aside, so what better time to start a new blog than today? I enjoy writing “in my spare time.” The trouble with doing things in our spare time is that there never is any — that is, my to-do list constantly has things on it that are higher priority than what I actually wantto do, which tends to be writing, photography, making GoPro videos, hiking, kayaking, cycling (and, yes, sometimes computer gaming and watching TV). Some of these necessary to-dos areactually necessary. But often the way to find time to do the things that we want to do are to…just do them, and work some of that other stuff around our activities of choice.
So, my hope, is that I can commit myself to write again by committing to writing about some things that I love — the Puget Sound area I live in, the activities and places I enjoy, and events in the area.
So far, this is a work in progress, but I hope to add some actual content here soon.
