“A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry list of the fauna and flora of a town.”–Henry David Thoreau
When I was trying to think of a name for this blog I did a search for quotes by one of my favorite authors, Henry David Thoreau, and this one stuck out for me. My blog will be about observing the world around me and focusing on things that catch my interest, the single bluebirds that I observe as I move through this world. I have many dry lists of interests, but my hope is to focus on aspects of these in a refreshing way. It will be about my perspective on topical items of interest. My life has been full of experiences, so I will not limit my writing to any one topic, but whatever strikes me at that moment.
I have always lived my life openly through my writing. I have shared intimate details and honest opinions freely ever since I was a young boy. I have done so because I have learned so much from my own experiences and feel that I can help others by sharing. I am a single bluebird in this world and maybe others’ interest in my experiences will be worth something, too.
