How did I get here?

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful Wife
And you may ask yourself-well…how did I get here? 

-Talking Heads, Once in a Lifetime

If you are reading this, you have either stumbled across this blog, are reading archives sometime in the future, or are one of the people helping with beta testing. Or, you may be someone running a blog that I have linked to in my blogroll. The About page will be fleshed out in due time, and will tell more about what this blog will likely be. The short version: this is a place for me to empty my head, and for others to join me by emptying theirs and sifting through the bits.

I’ve been blogging for a while, and have recently made the decision to turn my older blog into a more private space for friends and family, and to put things that might be of more general interest here. Suggestions–particularly suggestions for links–are welcome.
