There are so many beginnings in life; whether it be your entrance into this world as a screaming and alarmingly purple bundle of joy…and pain, or when you began to realise that life is not going to turn out as you had planned so carefully.
It could be the moment when you catch that baseball/softball/football with your stomach and just as you believe that life might be ending for good as you fall into the abyss of unconsciousness, you take that first deep breath and you think that life has (thankfully and dramatically) begun afresh.
Whatever your beginning, this is mine. Well, one of the trillions of beginnings that I will have in this lifetime. This blog is my way of (hopefully) eloquently communicating my word-vomit in a way that satisfies my need to be heard as well as my realisation that nobody really wants to listen.
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

And so we turn the page over, to think of starting. This is all there is.
