the undiscovered country

July 30, 2010

I resisted creating a personal, standalone blog like this for a long time. Throughout my 10-year tenure as a news editor, online editor and book critic, I wrote a few pieces for my defunct MySpace profile page, wrote a simplistic blog on books for the Corpus Christi Caller-Times and contributed some casual thoughts to the Potato Report and Tune Table, two blogs on mySA.com, the online partner of the San Antonio Express-News. But I always wondered what I would do with a blog that had no limits on subject matter, commentary or personal control … one that was mine alone. I suppose I never made the time to find out, until now.

This new venue, Stillness of Heart (named for my favorite Lenny Kravitz song), offers me a vast landscape for my mind to roam, of which I will take full advantage. I expect the posts will reflect my varied (and some say eclectic) interests, my love for history and for books, and my fascination with foreign affairs, political controversies and dark humor.

I imagine it will all be intertwined with my own reviews of books, films and art, my celebration of great television drama, thoughts on life’s simpler matters, a smattering of fiction and perhaps even the blog-equivalence of gleefully jumping up and down when I’ve written a beautiful sentence. I’ll offer links to essays, articles and other items that have caught my eye, similar to what I usually do on Facebook.

Naturally, I invite my readers to point me in the right directions, introduce me to their great passions, pose interesting questions, and always challenge me to improve myself and expand my horizons.

My heart and mind are blossoming in many new ways as they’re bathed in the cool breezes and warm sunshine of this new, uncertain, strenuous life. May this be one of the best ways to fully embrace, document, enrich and explore this undiscovered and beautiful country.
