The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.

Work in progress, as they say, so please don't smash my eggs. If something doesn’t make sense (i.e. you’ve hit a confused dead end), grace me with thy patience and forbearance. This is a transplantation and expansion of an earlier blog. Bigger. Brighter. Better…I think. With a host of new tools at my disposal, I can complete the rough sketch I began years ago. In ’09 I took a little trip. That “little trip” lasted two-and-a-half years. The Great Sojourn gave birth to this brainchild and all it contains.

I have plans. Big plans. Resurrect my memories via journal entries, photos, and short grainy videos. Encapsulate essence and memorialize sentiment here. Write book that ties it all together (Tentative title? The Nostomaniac’s Dilemma). Bask in the glory of literary achievement. Summer in the Hamptons. Die of alcoholism.

My goal is three posts a week a la blog. Bitch. Chew. Complain. That’s what the comments are for. Constructive whinging will be appreciated. "Love me or hate me, but spare me your indifference." Who said that? Feel free to let me know.

Start at Home and then ease your way to About. If you’re still interested, hop on over to the bloggy blog, The Great Sojourn. If not, go hump a petrified aardvark. I’m kidding. I’m mostly kidding. This is the trip. Come along…won’t you? Of course you won’t…or you just might. Cue the angelic melody. And don’t forget to buckle up.

P.S. I love you
