People move mountains.
Over the past 4 years, I have taken to pen and keyboard to write my thoughts–however disjointed, misguided or ill-conceived they might be–and to share them, for your consumption and debate. The topics we have discussed have maintained a mostly-political bent, but have touched on the religious, spiritual, economic, social and deeper human issues that I have faced or witnessed others face around the world.
For years, I have thought of myself as a writer. This small piece of the Internet, and its tagline–“Long runs, legendary musings and an insatiable quest for knowledge”–was my attempt to “learn through writing.” Perhaps better stated, I had hoped to take a position, argue it, and through the various work to back up that position through the gamut of opposing remarks and stances, learn a lot more about the issues themselves, the country we live in and the people who comprise her.
What I have learned is that I am part of the problem.
