If there is an amateur reader still left in the world--or anybody who just reads and forgets to process the information just gathered--I ask him or her, with untellable affection and gratitude, to subscribe to my blog. I offer my sympathies upfront to anyone who reads the poorly strung together words on this page and accepts them as a legitimate excuses of a time waster. I do not blog. I do not know how to blog. Nor do I think I have anything "blog-worthy". All disclaimers aside; time to go down the rabbit hole, shall we?
