Dear Visitor, thank you for stopping by. Here you’ll find a portrait of myself—what I think, why I act as I do, how I feel—that is true to life, warts and all. The title “Off and On” captures the unreliability of my project, even as I hope time and experience prove to be effective teachers. My goal is a simple one: to leave for my friends, loved ones and passers-by a record of who I am. It is an intensely personal project, so it is not reasonable that you should spend time reading what I have to say. But if you do, I sincerely welcome you with an open heart and thank you for your companionship and time.
