Hello world is an appropriate enough beginning, so I think I’ll leave it at that. In fact, it bears repeating. Hello world! It’s about time I got into this blogging business. I’ve got a lot to say and you *might* find some of it interesting. If not, let me know. All feedback is appreciated and I know I can learn from what you have to say.
So this is me jumping in. This is a blog about my rich and random life. I say rich because the opportunities and experiences in my life have exceed my wildest dreams. I say random because the opportunities and experiences are so varied that the only way to describe them is random.
A college professor once told me:
“Langley, you’re pretty good at a lot of things but not great at any one thing. People who are only good at one thing have an easier time in this life. Their path is clear. You’ll have tough choices to make.”
That’s pretty heavy to say to a college kid. At the time, I really didn’t get what she meant. Was that an insult, a compliment or simply an observation? Now that, um, several years have passed, I know exactly what she meant. And it was an insightful observation. Because I am pretty good at a lot of things, I’ve done a lot of things, which results in a rich and random life.
