First step

As in “journey of a thousand miles starts with a”.  This blog is a resource for me to give voice to whatever I want to give voice to.  At that level it is just for me.  It just happens to be going out into cyberspace to have a life of its own.  I do have hopes that some of what I write will resonate with people.  Make them smile, make them think, make them argue; make them share their voices.  I am drawn to this format because of it’s flexibility, immediacy and potential creativity.  Even as I write this I experience ideas and options about how to do it.  For example, I am about to change the name of the blog to A Pilgrim’s Process. Because even these first 124 words have stimulated and clarified for me what I am exploring.  Over a number of years I have gathered bits and pieces of things that I find interesting.  I often think of them as bumper stickers or t-shirt sayings.  I remember the first time it dawned on me that something as simple as a couple of bumper stickers could make an impact beyond the moment.  I was driving down hwy 101 just South of Santa Barbara and I spotted a pickup truck with two bumper stickers on its rear bumper.  The one on the left said, “Life’s a bitch, then you die.”  The one on the right said, “Have a nice day.”  I thought to myself, I can live with that as a guideline.  Two truths representing a philosophy based on reality at it’s harsher level and still open to all the amazing things that life has to offer.  So, that’s it for my first step.
