Most people are simple beings entangled in complicated lives. I am no different. I am a juggler. And my act is intricate. Family, school, work, writing, genealogy, Taijutsu and Self all require varying degrees of attention. Unfortunately, it is me (the Self) that ends up with the short end of the stick. I am talking about personal time. The time needed for reflection, personal and spiritual growth. To remedy the situation, I created this blog as an outlet. This is a place for writing, thoughts and life experiences. Welcome, and may you find something edifying here.

If you are interested in genealogy and history take a look at my other website The Genealogist Journal.

Thank you for reading.
