Hello World!

  So!  After much contemplation, I decided to start an online blog.  I will begin my foray into this medium by describing the reasons for its birth and the purpose.  Those factors are extremely crucial to any undertaking.

  The whole idea began over the course of the summer just past.  As some of you know, I recently graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design, but the school decided to give me one final bite in the neck with a required summer elective.  I recently came to the realization that virtually ALL my fellow graduates had faced the same menacing conundrum.  During my devious encounter with this class, I came to the discovery of another great passion and skill with which The Almighty One has blessed me: writing.

  I found out that I really enjoy the practice of inscription and decided to pursue it.  My teacher was the one who really pushed the button on the idea, so much credit and thanks to Prof. Anne Swartz for the idea.  Just thought I'd give credit where credit is due. (^_^)

  As for the purpose of this blog, I must be as clear and specific as possible.  I have been taught both as a follower of Christ through Scripture and as a thespian through SCAD that my purpose in life is not to promote myself, but to promote the Truth.  Reason being is that I am only one human being who is here for a moment and then I'm gone; but the Truth is eternal and lingers on (Hey, I can rhyme!).  I've found that this really is not that difficult.  Seperating the Truth from falsehood has never been that challenging for me, and it is absolutely necessary that it be done by all.

  A major problem with our society today is that we have throughly given into the spirit of social Darwinism.  Everybody only looks out for and thinks about "Number 1", regardless of who else gets harmed or neglected in the process.  "Me, Myself, and I" has become the new "Holy Trinity".  This is a major issue that must be at least addressed, if not solved.  If we ever managed to seperate the wrongdoing from the person, a LOT of very serious problems could be solved.

It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui. - Hellen Keller
  This is what I aim to do here.    I hope to give insight to those who seek after it; and hope to receive insight from those who wish to give it.  If you are not interested in finding out what is true and real and objective for yourself as well as others, I would suggest that you leave this moment of reading this blog unmarked.  However, if you wish to set your mind, body, and soul free from the imprisonment of falsehood and selfishness, then welcome, my brother/sister.  Let us reason together. (^_^)

  And believe me, we're gonna have some fun with this place.  I'll be delivering humorous articles galore on a number of topics, top tens, questionnaires, challenges, and more stories than you'll know how to deal with.  Shmowzow!
