Every journey begins with a first step. This is mine.

November 7, 2011

I like writing.  For years I’ve contemplated writing seriously.  Yeah, I know…sounds pretty narcissistic.  Me…a writer?  Sure, sure, whatever.  Back to the salt caves with you, Shakespere.  Shut up and color.

Sorry, no.  I won’t do that.  Life’s way too short.

This blog won’t be a novel.  Just small pieces of thoughts, ideas, observations, worries and dreams of mine.  All of us have them.  I’m just trying to write them down.

By trade, I’m an airline pilot.  Even that’s not quite true.  More accurately, I’m a furloughed airline pilot.  Difference being I’m not presently active as an airline pilot.  Which sucks because so much of who I am and what I love to do is not presently happening.  Oh…many, many reasons for this.

I’m an optimistic sort.  Always have been.  Always will be.  Some things in my life haven’t gone exactly as planned (dramatic understatement), but it’s not the end of the world here.  Far from it.  Call ’em lumps in the oatmeal bowl.

non·plussed/nänˈpləst/

Adjective:
  1. (of a person) Surprised and confused so much that they are unsure how to react.
  2. (of a person) Unperturbed.
I love when a word exists that captures the precisely the essence of what a writer is trying to convey.  “Nonplussed” fits me.  Both definitions.  So that’s the name of my blog and my website.  That’s me.
And this blog is my first step.
