Getting started

Occasionally I find myself, as a journalist with limited writing duties these days, craving some writing. And sometimes I take that out on my Facebook friends.

So I'm thinking about turning to a blog that won't have any real focus other than me and my life, and things that interest me at the moment. I'll post links on Facebook, and I'd love it if you'd read from time to time and give me some feedback.

What might I write about? Well, these days I'm pretty focused on being more healthy, so there's that. Sports, of course. My wife and kids and the things that make our life go around. Fishing and camping, at times. Facial hair, maybe, since I have some for the first time in my 45 years. Weather, perhaps. God and the importance of my Christian friends. Who knows what else.

I won't be real opinionated, because I generally don't like to be perceived as pushing my opinions off on others. You'll know my opinions, for the most part, by how I live. Hopefully I'll be at least a little bit humorous, because I like to make people laugh, or at least smile.

And what's the point of the title of this blog? Well, it's part of one of my favorite sayings: "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass ... it's learning to dance in the rain."

So ... who wants to dance with me?


  1. Wow! I'm going to have to read your blog because I used that very same quote today in a post to my 22 year old niece who is in the Navy! It is one of my favorite quotes too! Plus I enjoy your writing on Facebook, so I am looking forward to your blog! PS...I like the facial hair!
