Well, I’m in my mid-50s, which means middle-aged, hence “from the middle zone.” I have two daughters – one 23, in her last semester at college about 5 hours away, finishing her BFA. The other is 18, about to graduate,and go off to college, and runs the household. I have a B.S.B in Business (1980) from the University of Minnesota, and a J.D. from the University of Hawaii (2004). I am on disability (SSI) due to multiple health problems, so I have plenty of time to think, muse, read and write. I use the Weblog as a way to get my thoughts out somewhere, even if no one reads them – at least they are out of my head!
I read SF almost exclusively, peppered with some thriller/adventure type books like Matt Reilly and James Rollins, and some of the better Da Vinci Code style thrillers, like Steve Berry, Raymond Khoury, etc. I also love YA SF/Fantasy fiction – there are some great authors out there.
So most of my writings/musings, in order to stay away from personal topics about my life, health, family and ex, are about what I read, or what I watch. I have many topics always in cue, so it’s just a matter of finding the time to sit down and roll them out – so they come in clumps – several within a few days, then nothing, then more.
I write about what interests me, what intrigues me, and what I have questions about. I invite comments, as many of my posts have questions either explicit or implicit within them. If anyone has suggestions for musings/writings, please feel free to let me know – I am always on the lookout for more things to think about. And I invite guest contributors, provided they stay within my conceptual framework of what is relevant, semi-relevant, or just plain intriguing. Nothing too polemic (with the exception of book burning), just thoughts on what is current. As the X-files tag says – The Truth is Out There!
