I would like to take a moment and thank you all for reading the madness inside my mind. My journey through life has been one fraught with misadventures, uncertainty, wrong turns and trauma. Having a place here with you guys has given me such a wonderful haven to address my duress. I would not trade it for the world.
I love sharing with all of you and I love seeing all of you very talented individuals whom have taken a moment to read, like or respond to my material. Of course me being very amateur at this writing thing has left me so hesitant at times. I have received so much warmth from all of you that it truly inspires me.
I am just putting a few words with some cool pictures I have found. Yet the whole process of accumulating a picture and putting time in thought of some words, I have found, in itself is a very healing act. The response is a bonus and it makes me elated that people can enjoy, relate and be amused by what I enjoy and am amused by.
Writing for me has always been a somewhat shaky endeavor. I was a journalism major at the college in my hometown. Yet due to life my focus had to shift to supporting life for me rather than edifying it. I know a lot of people have had to make similar choices. Yet my passion to be an outlet that people turned to for the news of the day still ruminates in me.
The pursuit of truth and informing the world is a daunting task that is so often saturated with pre-madona visions of self-aggrandizement. For me though the quest for truth is far more tantalizing. I always loved sitting with a person and understanding situations as I did with my school newspaper.
Getting to hear someone’s truth and revealing misunderstood scenarios and facts is kind of an adrenaline rush for me. More so than the glory of being an anchor on some news outlet.
I sit here thinking of it now and miss it. Yet here I am fumbling around on a blog with a chance to connect with people such as yourselves. Life still hasn’t allowed me my dreams. But pity me not. I have had a wonderful life and I find great comfort in all of you.
Still, there are times I ask myself, “Jared, what the hell are you doing?” I type at the speed of light which without spell correct would be barely cogent. You sit here now trying to overlook my grammatical and spelling errors. It is a vicious cycle.
Yet you sit here now and a beauty takes place that of which is a real human connection. It is a beautiful moment for me and I sincerely apologize and thank you for forgiving a misspelled word or two.
I never have ever thought of starting a blog. Certainly not adopt a domain for that matter. I almost took it as a flippant quest which would be for my eyes only. Yet this site has taken on a whole new meaning for me. So from the shaky writer in me I want to take a second to thank you all again.
