Wow; I suddenly have a strange mixture of writer's block and stage fright. What do you say here that hasn't been said a googillion times before? Welcome to my new blog. Yes, I know that's been said ad nauseam, but rarely by me - welcome to my new blog - that's what makes it unique, I suppose. Each blog is like a snowflake, I guess, with no two being exactly alike. So, this one's mine.
Until it melts.
As to the title - "Daddy on the Edge" is not a subtle hint at suicidal tendencies (which would be "Daddy on the Ledge", silly). I think it speaks more to transitions in my life. When you're on the edge, you're at the point where one place/thing/state of being meets another place/thing/state of being. Perhaps it's the point where paradigms shift. Perhaps it's the border between rational and irrational acts. It could even be that thin slice of reality that separates all of our alternate selves...the edge of universes where we made different choices, became different people, discovered different selves.
Or maybe I thought it just sounded pithy.
What might you expect to find here? Yeah...I'm kinda wondering that myself. Random insights? Probably. Inspirational messages? Possibly - if we're lucky. An eclectic potpourri of whatever the hell happens to be on my mind at any given time of the day or night and then gets spewed across the screen before I can think about it enough to stop myself? Oh yeah...there's gonna be plenty of that.
So, welcome! Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment by the door so I know you dropped in. :)
Talk to you soon,
