Starting Off

I think I've been called to start this blog because I seem to be gathering experience in being able to express myself in writing, and have been feeling an innate need to share, if for no other reason than to help myself and others. Here's the brief initial scoop:

I live in Grand Junction, Colorado.
I am a native of the greater Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.
I have been married for nearly 18 years. My wife has been fighting cancer since July 2005. More about her here.
We have a teenage son, Evan. More about him here.
I work in Public Safety Communications. Not to sound trite, but my work number is 9-1-1.
I am also active in several professional organizations and publications.
We attend Canyon View Vineyard Church in Grand Junction. Being there has helped..a lot.

My hobbies include:
Frank Lloyd Wright.
Mass Media.
I volunteer at KAFM Radio, an excellent community radio station.
Politics as it relates to the First Amendment, Civil Liberties, and Freedom in Cyberspace.
I am a big fan of Garrison Keillor and A Prairie Home Companion.

It seems that this week I've got plenty to say, and hopefully that well won't run dry anytime soon. Considering all of the interesting things going on in the world, I can't imagine that happening anytime soon.

Off we go. Your comments and suggestions are welcome.
