When I created this site, I had grand visions that it might become a place of “big ideas.” I envisioned earnest conversations and civil debates leading to secular epiphanies and a deeper appreciation of this universe. Sadly, those things require nurturing and eloquence and understanding far beyond my capabilities. And those things tend not to flourish in a bathtub filled with rancid soup. They don’t blossom when fed a fuel of pre-digested opinions, opinions borne, not of logical thought, but of elemental emotional reaction.
There are days, and this is one of them, I consider wiping the slate clean, removing every post I’ve ever made. I could replace them, slowly and deliberately, with posts worthy of generating discussion and debate. But, then, where would I put my recipes and my rants?
And now you must see the dilemma. It’s not the recipes and the rants, it’s the mental process that allowed them to surface here, of all places, in this post.
