Throughout my writing life, one of my guiding principles has been that anything worth doing is worth writing about…and anything worth writing about is worth my personal engagement. When I backpacked, I wrote about backpacking…but only places I already wanted to go. When I wrote about science, I wrote about topics that enthused me, not just ones that pay the rent. Likewise, sports and coaching writing came either from personal experience or as an outgrowth of researching something I otherwise needed to know.
Hence the name for this blog. If I write on the same topic more than once, I might list categories to facilitate browsing, but this is a place where I want let fun, enthusiasm, and personal interest flow in whatever directions they lead.
So if you need trigger warnings, beware: there could be anything here–politics, cool science, stories of almost falling off a mountain, running, or even the occasional movie review. If you’re looking for a unifying slant, it’s this:
Basically, if it’s worth my doing, I might figure it’s worth writing about. Or not. For me, that uncertainty is part of the fun of this endeavor.
