Having thought about blogging for sometime, and reading other's efforts for even longer, I decided to "take action" finally and get started. One hesitation has been whether I really had anything to say; and is there actually anyone out there who cares to know, if I do. Well, at least my grandkids--the ones old enough to read, that is--should be interested. So, why not!
I learned to journal over a decade ago from my friend Oscar Woodall. Woody was ardent about journaling. I am not. But I have learned the value of doing so. Looking over my shoulder in what Woody termed "after-action reports" has become a valuable learning experience. I'll try and post some, not all, of these acquired thoughts as time goes on.
It would also be interesting to hear from readers. One thing that makes the "after-action report" a valuable thing is that it puts more/different eyes on the experience. So feel free to comment!
Also, as a teacher this space will naturally be used to "teach a little." I can't help it. It's in my blood. But I'm not going to post long studies--my other sites do plenty of that. Here I'll try to keep it a bit more personal.
Ok. That's a start. So as I hit the "enter posts" key for the first time, welcome.
