When I first began this blog, it was partly because A) I’d been wanting to create some series that I would actually keep up with — I’d started maybe ten blogs before this and deleted them all because I wouldn’t post — B) because I’d often see and meet people that I thought were beautiful or otherwise interesting and C) because at the time of it’s commencement, I was going through a bit of a difficult time in my life. Since then, I’ve found something to keep up with, gotten into the habit of letting folks know how I feel and for the most part, let a considerable amount of worry just fade away. I’m not saying this blog is the reason for my sanity, just like money won’t buy me a lick of happiness. I am saying that it’s helped. I’ve been told that me approaching people is like paying them a compliment. But seriously. Let me, thank you. And now I will continue to celebrate your cool.

I’ve been prowling the edges of the town.

We speak a lot about trying and getting ready to and fixing to and thinking and contemplating doing when most times it’s most feasible, however arduous, to just do.

So I played some chess yesterday. It seems that bone’s been tickled well enough in my body since I’m practicing again. Here’s a smile from one of the players.
