Well, after taking several minutes to find the 'post new thread' button, I have shown that I'm not much of a puzzle person. And, by typing these few words, have shown I'm not much of a writer either. But, if a journey begins with a single step, then, often that single step starts with a kick to the ass. So, here we go. Manfred Mann's Earth Band is rocking in my head phones: "A golden helmet...blinded minds..Among ten thousand swords...Along the road to Babylon" I started writing about three or so years ago. I was working as a contractor in Afghanistan and more as therapy than a real hobby. "There's no easy way to go... Well, well, well...No easy road to follow...Well, well, well" I discovered I really enjoy writing. Who would have thought it? Meeting a new person and discovering that person is yourself. We have been hanging out ever since and hope to be hanging out with you in these forums. Godspeed All!
