I can’t predict how you will respond to this blog. My hope will be that many of you will have very different reactions to the things I post. It has taken me many years to realize that I have the liberty to use words like a painter uses his brush, or a musician his instrument. I can chose to follow a known pattern that is easily recognizable, blend many genres to create a fusion that has elements of the familiar, but is distinctly different. Or… do what I do and leave you the power to apply my words as you choose. You always have options!
