Call me Ishmael. Well, actually, call me Bill.
As it says on the card: “Provider of exquisite pleasure, gallantry and derring-do; swashes buckled… reasonable rates!”
‘Struth, I’m a motorcycle maniac, martial mayhem artist, diver, explorer, engineer, scientist, and all-around nice guy. I love language, and enjoy reading and writing in a variety of venues.
Long ago, before the word “blog” had been invented, I had a web site, and on that site I had a page that I updated occasionally with health & training tips, tactics, strategies and other miscellany that I thought I’d be able to pass on to my fencing students, and any friends that wanted to pop in. I dropped that site, but kept posting on other sites, ’til I’m now here, for anyone to look at. Enjoy!
So now this blog is just a way for me to keep friends up with with what’s going on with me, a way to communicate health and training hints, movie reviews and other fun stuff without spamming people, and it’s turning out to be an online workout journal, as well.
Couple of quotes for ya, to tell you where I’m at. Enjoy.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. — Robert Heinlein
Hey, I’m working on it. Also:
Come, my friends,
‘Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
— Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Thanks for listening. Remember, Thou Art God. And so am I…
