Hello everyone! About a month ago, I decided to challenge myself to write at least one substantial item per day for a year. I began with letters to a few of my friends who are deployed, writing randomly with whatever thoughts came to mind, etc., etc. I failed miserably after week one for various excused that I made up to justify my actions. So, after re-looking my lack of discipline in the matter, I decided on a blog as my means to achieve the goal. Ladies and gentlemen, we are off a running the marathon. Let’s see if I can keep up the pace.
