Blogging increases finger dexterity

I stole the title from an old bluejeans comercial.  The advertisement promised that the button fly of the jeans would increase your finger dexterity.  If it’s true of button flies, it must also be true of typing on a keyboard.  If it isn’t true at all, at least it’s a useful fiction.


“Humankind cannot bear very much reality.”

–T. S. Eliot


Really though, attempting to realize ‘reality’ strikes me as a worthwhile undertaking.  (Don’t let that sentence give you a headache.)  We shouldn’t be afraid of existence.  It’s true that it’s too vast to be grasped by our poor minds, and that this awareness of our own limited perspective can lead to existential angst.  But it can lead other places as well.


That’s all the writing I have time for now, but I hope it’s enough to convey a sense of what I want this blog to be about.  If not, at least my fingers are more dexterous now.
