It begins…

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said that so I guess it’s good advice. Making a blog is a bit like leaving a trail isn’t it? A bit like heading where there is no path? Well, anyway, I’m gonna try this blog thing and see how it goes. I do this for a few reasons:

  1. I have meandering thoughts on a thousand things but few of these thoughts ever get finished; they just crash around inside my head cluttering up the place. Maybe writing some of it down will help.
  2. I’m an educator at heart and educators, by nature, like to share ideas, thoughts, insights.  So I do this in a teacherly way, even if I’m the only student in class.
  3. I do like to write – sort of.
  4. I signed up for DS106, so now I have to.
  5. Maybe it will be something my kids can look at after I die. Or maybe even before then.

So here I go, taking the first few strokes. It will be tentative for a while, no doubt. My musings will be focused mainly on things related to teaching and learning but I’ll wander on occasion, as we do.
