Creating a blog and a mailing list of those who’ve expressed an interest in my work gives me a chance to begin communicating some of my thoughts and writings to people I consider friends. These blog entries will be from both present writing and from the recent past, when I have been writing mostly short essays, stories and poetry.
Just as my nine books offer no consistency of style or subject, so too my blog entries will vary greatly in tone, subject, and style. There will be political satire, playful zen thoughts, poetry, short stories, parables, deep philosophical musings (let’s hope these are kept to a minimum), and some brief autobiographical sketches. Just as with the weather in some places, if you don’t like what you’re experiencing now with the blog, just wait a while–a different wind will be blowing quite soon.
