  Not to put too fine a point on it, but....
Its with a bit of trepidation I take my first few steps into this particular blog.
Partially because, I think, I've never done this before. But also because this, like everytime I undertake to "write it all down", I start to reflect on what it means to write.
Kind of a sacred trust, isn't it?
I mean, if not for people taking pen to paper, or stylus to clay, or fingers to keyboards, where would we all be?
The writer plucks moments out of time and entombs them forever in some kind of medium. What an awesome responsibility. Sure, this is just a blog. But I still feel like I need to be so cautious about the moments I trap on this site, the thoughts I freeze in cyberspace. Whenever we write something down, we contribute a little bit to this great march we call civilization. God help us all if we start putting the wrong things on paper.
So please accept this blog as my own humble contribution to humanity. It ain't much, but its a start. And if at any point you sense I might be putting civilization in peril, please let me know.

Jack of all trades, master of none, Graeme is many things to many people. Unfortunately, none of them find him very life-affirming in any capacity. He is a freelance writer, broadcaster, amateur cryptozoologist and occasional political commentator late of London, England and now based in Toronto. Most of the time, he's confused. And a little hungry. But mostly just confused and somewhat uncomfortable writing in the third person.
