Welcome to the beginning of proof I existed.

By Josh  //  deeper stuff, life  //  No Comments

This weekend was graduation time for all of the local high schools.  Hearing people talking about that had me promptly pondering my graduation, and more importantly where life’s taken me since that time.

I then felt frail and very temporary.  This life is so short, and time really does fly by.

To top things off, this morning I stumbled upon one of my favorite essays turned music video (Baz Lurhman’s Everybody’s Free shown below).  I spent the whole time watching that video thinking about how I can’t definitively  say that I am and have lived my life to the fullest, and even if I felt that I have I have no way to go back later and see where I’ve gone.

My memory is poor and I suspect with age it will only tarnish more, so I’m going to try and keep track of things in this way… via a blog.  I’m hoping to treat it as a diary more than a blog.  I don’t expect too many people to find their way here, and I’m okay with that.

If you happen to stumble onto this site, enjoy?
