So I’ve decided to cement my daily thoughts in immortal type, and plaster them here on the world wide web for all to read. What kind of an idiot am I? One with hopeful ambitions, I guess. So why am I doing this? I’m glad you asked. The main reason is because I call myself a writer, and writers are supposed to write. I like to journal, but it’s hard to do that every day. This is kind of a sneaky way to force myself to write everyday. Knowing that, I think it’s also a good way to realize that not all my writing is going to be good writing. Sometimes I get that lofty idea in my head.
So what’s in it for you? Well, I hope you thoroughly enjoy reading what I have to say. But I know I’m not that special. I’m just hoping that at times my jumbled mess of thoughts will make sense to someone, and make them think. Maybe you’ll scratch your head at an interesting idea, maybe you’ll have to write something down. Maybe you’ll step away from your computer screen a changed person. Maybe you’ll see that there’s a little more to this life. Or maybe you’ll just laugh and shake your head. I guess we just have to wait and see.
So here we go. Thanks for joining me on what could be a wild ride.

Hi Kevin. This is interesting. I googled my grandfather hoping to possibly find some pictures, and I ran across a couple of photos that you posted. They were of Carl Madden and Carl Madden Jr. Carl was my great grandfather and Carl Jr. was my grandfather. I was just wondering who your parents and grandparents are. Hope to hear back from you.
I just happened upon your site today and simply wanted to say that I appreciate your genuine honesty and humility that is spread throughout the posts I have had a chance to read so far.
Very interesting site. I’ve been doing a little bit of blogging about adoption and found some of your thoughts helpful. In fact, I just linked to one of your old blog posts. Thanks!
wow, you’ve been “blogging” for a crazy long time. Was it even called “Blogging” back then?
