Raison d'être

Over the centuries, human beings have yearned for a place that they can call home. The emergence of a new staging place for drama of life, the internet -- a place that is very real to some but that is virtual to others -- has led to a new race. A race to build a place that you can call home in the surrealistic realm of the world wide web.

The Raison d'être of this blog is to function as my dwelling place in this alternate of realities: A place where my inspirations, experiences, musings, ramblings, ideas, good times, etc can be shared with others. At the same time, the blog is also an "I was here" carving on the face of the internet; Think of it as a "da vincian chef d'œuvre" to avoid the usually associated connotations of defacement.

In keeping with the poetic tradition,
"May the musae look benevolently on this blog from the heights of Mount Helicon and protect all posted material from nasty comments, copyright infringement, lawsuits etc "
