Ah, the onset of a new venture, a new blog! And the ship in which we set sail a threadbare vessel borne aloft upon the roiling azure only by our imagination – let it be no idle promise to say each day from now will prove an exercise in improvising enough ingenuity to keep us afloat! Nonetheless, let faith guide our hands, whether that faith reside without or within! And there the westward horizon reflecting a gleaming path upon the wine-dark seas – let that be the only course allowed! Gaze long enough into those waters and have your true visage be revealed! And yonder, leviathans and unknown shores, promises of peril which we’ll greet with a grin – the ensuing scarlet stains upon our clothes medals and chevrons given by Nature herself, to be worn with the vainglory of any well-groomed admiral! From here on glory or a forlorn grave at black abyss’ bottom!
