I told you the story behind the title; I failed to tell you the story behind the blog. I haven’t told you why I chose this medium to publish Generations. The answer may surprise you.
I am notorious for supplying biographical information that has very little biography. There are a few reasons for this: 1) How is it possible to sum up who you are and why you do what you do in 140 characters or less? 2) My life reads like an On Demand menu for B movies and 3) As it is my life, I prefer to think of what my experiences have taught me rather than relive those experiences. However, I believe that a little more information about me might be beneficial in understanding my blog.
The bio attached to my Gravatar reads as follows:
I am an overeducated underachiever. There was a time I had a Plan A, and then a Plan B, then Plan C and yes, even Plan D. Welcome to Plan E.
For clarity sake, I will use this as an outline for a more extensive biography. I will try to keep this “me, me, me” narrative as brief as possible… part of me wants to leave it as it is… but another part of me believes that if I don’t acknowledge the problems of past Plans, I doom the current Plan to failure. If I allow the thought of a Plan F to enter into my mind, I think I’ll go ahead and have myself committed. So… next post: Plan A
