I realized the other day that I miss writing my weekly newspaper column. It was purely for the sake of communicating with people about the things that were deeply meaningful to me. Don’t get me wrong. I love writing and posting about science and technology and history and food, but that all of those fall under the general category of the things I write about professionally. I want a place to write about the things that are outside that realm. So — this blog will be about books, adoption, diabetes, asthma, the freelance life, religious conversion, spirituality, and all other matters that matter to me. I can’t leave the science and techie part of me too far behind, so anything that relates to medical issues will be well-researched and accompanied by appropriate links. For that matter, so will everything else. I hope you’ll join me often and add your comments.
