Well, hello. You’ve wandered into a strange corner of the internet. Welcome!
I’m just another person who’s writing things and putting them online. My name happens to be Anne. What’s yours?
I’ve always loved writing–well, for as long as I can remember, anyway.
Given the title of this blog I’ve created, you might be tempted to think that I think of myself as some sort of genius. It’s not quite the opposite, but it’s a lot closer than you might think.
See, I am just falling for knowledge. Knowledge isn’t me. I do have a certain amount of knowledge, of course, as we all do. But I don’t spend all my days seeking out new books and new information, boldly going to libraries and whatnot (though libraries are amazing, and I now want to go to a library). What I do, though, is reflect often on what knowledge I can gain from my experience and the experiences shared by those around me.
I’ve discovered that life has this funny way of holding more to things of financial worth than to things that feel important; makes sense that rent and food would demand and successfully acquire a great deal of my attention, but I’d like to keep some attention reserved for that reflection or for little bits of research should an interesting subject catch my eye.
So, to that end, I’ve created a blog. I have wanted to write more regularly, and I have been keeping up with that mostly, but I would like to add the accountability of a potential audience (that’d be you, if there’s anyone actually reading this).
Sometimes I’ll be writing about what I’ve learned; sometimes I’ll learn later from what I write; hopefully I’ll learn a great deal from you along the way.
I look forward to hearing from you (once you exist as an audience member here, of course, or sooner if you’ve got a time machine, though come to think of it, that actually seems like a paradox in the making).
I know usually people try to avoid the comment section, but I do hope you will say hello and introduce yourself.
