well, this is my first post in my new blog/online journal. For years I have wanted to enter the world of blogging but for one reason or another I just never got around to doing it. I think I was a little too focused on making an amazing blog, and that got in the way of just doing anything.

So the reason for this blog/journal is multifold.

  • I want a place where I can just share thoughts and insights and interesting things I come across on the web. I do this now on Facebook, but only my friends can see, for some insights about dharma, entheogens, and cosmology, I’d like to interact with a larger group of people.
  • I am looking for a way to organize my thoughts. I feel that in writing about my interests and things I am learning about it will help me integrate them better. I read so much stuff, but I find that sometimes it just goes in one eye and out the other. I know that by writing I will better understand and assimilate the things I am writing about. 
  • I plan to use the WordPress platform as a content management system for new website projects in my company Blue Mandala and this will give me an opportunity to really play around with it and feel how it works in a real world environment.
  • I am enrolled in school at the University of Waterloo Independent Studies program and plan to use this platform as a means to journal about my experiences in my classes, and as a way to complete certain coursework.
I hope that some of what i write about and comments that are posted may be of relevance and benefit to this funny world of ours.
