Welcome to my “commonplace blog.”  A commonplace book is historically a kind of notebook curious readers have kept for themselves to take note of interesting things they have read or seen or heard.  I have grown up in the age of “blogging” so keeping a blog seems more natural to me than keeping a notebook.

So here you have it, a collection of things that for whatever reason have stuck out to me personally amidst my journey of gaining knowledge and wisdom.  Maybe you will sense a certain theme to my notes or maybe you will conclude I’m a little cooky.  If anything I hope it makes you wonder about yourself and the world we live in.
