In principio…a word on beginnings

Beginning something, whether it is a small or a great thing, is all too easy in this one-click age. Sure, a little thought is required, but thought is a high-priced commodity. The amount of thought must correspond to the importance of the thing. Judging a thing’s importance, however, also requires time. So it is, that we often begin things willy-nilly, deeming them unimportant, only to realize later, sometimes much later, that our initial beginning was whimsical and cavalier.

Thus, I sit here, in front of the computer screen, enjoying my new blog and its set-up, but wishing I had at hand a fitting quote, something to lend gravity to the situation, if only for my own reference in the future. This would help assure me that my beginning was not dumb after all, that, even though I wasn’t ready to say anything special, still I could provide whoever out there is reading a little food for thought. Alas, my unpreparedness has exposed the truly capricious nature of my soul to the whole world. Oh, well. Better luck next time.
