Most of what I write about here is Life 101.
It’s simple, and – for me — essential.
And that’s why I write about it.
I wish to contribute, in a very small way, to a society where (some of) these things are seen as basic and essential.
It may be helpful to some of the people reading it. (For me, it’s always helpful to be reminded of the basics. And I know it’s helpful to me to find others with similar experiences and interests as myself.)
And, in the best case, it’s helpful to me when I write. It allows me to explore, clarify, and remind myself. The more sincere I am, and the closer to immediate experience, the more I benefit and the more likely I am to be surprised by what I discover.
