I started out wanting to be cool. I thought, ‘let me define the word being. Or me. Or perhaps even am’, to explain who I am and what I want to accomplish with this blog. But then I thought it wasn’t so cool to have a blog about exploring life through words if one doesn’t have a really old, really reliable reference book that can be crafted into a character to love, admire, and respect. My next thought was:

I should buy a dictionary. That would be cool.

And that is all you need to know to understand who I am and what this blog is about. If you don’t get how buying a dictionary would be cool, trust me you’re reading the wrong blog. So off I am to purchase my first piece of literary pornography.

I’ll keep you posted.
