I was walking through a local Peet’s Coffee last December.  It was late afternoon. The place was populated with people sitting at tables staring into laptop screens in the fading sunlight.  

My bankruptcy was moving towards discharge.  I had just come to terms with the end of my assistant sound editing career and was beginning to mentally germinate this blog.  Before that day, I had always wondered what all of these able-bodied working age adults were doing sitting at their computers during regular working hours. 

It hit me.  Some of them were probably bloggers.  And I was about to become one of them.

I wasn’t looking at an aggregation of odd, immature behavior.  I was looking at my future, the new phase, the next challenge.  It wasn’t scary.  It felt good.
