why do this?

i wonder why i need to blog? maybe it’s my ever-present drive to communicate, maybe it’s like confiding in a best friend – but of course without the secrets! – or maybe it’s plain old cabin fever.
one idea is that it’s just the desire to make sense of this strange but wonderful planet i find myself living on called Planet Family. i just never imagined i would be living here myself. i had friends who had been to Planet Family and they had seemed nearly themslves afterwards, a bit more distracted, a bit more vague and tired, caught up in the day to day with no grand plans for the future. not like me at all.

so now that i find myself a permanent resident of Planet Family, my mission is to make it the place where i can be happy, fulfilled, optimistic, and a better person. oh and there’s the fella and kids too.
