Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me
Leading wherever I choose

— Walt Whitman, Song of the Open Road

Welcome to my blog!  My purpose is to develop content for articles and books, practice my writing skills, and discover what interests people through their comments.  If you follow me, we’ll go on adventures, some long, some short, some fast, some slow, some on foot, some back in time, some in other directions, wherever the path beckons.

For more on the history of the Long Brown Path, read the introductory post
