The beginning of something new

It’s 1:30 AM and I can’t sleep, which isn’t unusual. This job keeps me up late at night when on the road and any attempt to have a normal sleep schedule when I’m home has not been successful. Plus, it seems to be that with a lot of the world asleep I can think about my life, the future, my dreams. 

After lots of thought and searching, I really feel that starting a/this blog is something I have to do. It’s not that I think that what I have to say is of any importance or that it will even reach anyone. I just think it needs to get out into the world, even if only for me. Maybe it’ll just be me adding to the noise in this already noisy world. But I want to give it a go none the less.

I want to use this to share true stories from the road and life. Stories that will make you laugh out loud. Stories of some of the great things I get to experience as I travel. Stories of disappointment. Stories of doubt. Serious stories. Funny stories. Stories that I want to remember when I’m 80 (and an extremely wealthy retiree). Hell, some of them may just be my thoughts on random shit. I really am not even sure to be quite honest. I just know I want to do it. And if I happen to touch someone with whatever I say…even better. Also, this will not be all about me. I have so many friends with great stories, experiences and wisdom that I think need to be shared as well.

Lastly, I’m challenging myself to write a post at least twice a month. So, here’s to nothing and adding to the dream. First “real” post coming soon.
