This Bud’s For Me

What is the purpose of this blog? To paraphrase an old Budweiser slogan, This Bud’s for me. When I was in graduate school a million years ago, one of my professors loved throwing around E. M. Forster’s quote, “How do I know what I think until I see what I say?” At the time, I thought it was professorial nonsense. At the time, I was also very timid about committing my thoughts to paper because I knew I was a work in progress; I knew that what I thought today was very likely be an embarrassment tomorrow.

We have thoughts certainly, but what we think implies a process. That process, however graceful and logical we wish it to be, can be as awkward and stilted as a longed for first date.
