The composition of this composition

I’m rolling out more blog posts in the past week than in the past months. Whycome? A few possible reasons:

  • The tug of the need to express myself and be understood.
  • The beauty of brevity: sometimes, not much need be said.
  • The pull of publishing: seeing my photographs on the web = pretty cool.
  • The ‘forgiveness of the form.’ I can be sloppy. I mean, I shouldn’t…but I get excited when I type and there are typos, missing words, incomplete thoughts. I make up for these glaring errors by correcting them every time a reader tells me about another one. Many thanks to you all. But I digress. I can be sloppy because my posts can be edited into perpetuity until, eventually, there’s no more sail to pull in. The sentences are taut.

I plan to post many more, shooting for one a day give or take. Look for stories about teaching, students (anonymously, when they give their permission), posts about great classic music, comedy, and television shows that folks my age — 50 — will more than likely remember. Generally speaking. To a point, I suppose.

Anyway, tune in to Calls to Adventure once a day or once a week. We’ll be here. How can I make such a bold prediction? I just put down $99 for an advertising-free experience for viewers for a year. Nothing motivates a Scotsman to get his money’s worth than, well, getting his money’s worth.
