It was hard for me to build this website. I procrastinated for years. I had too many ideas of articles to write or tree topics. It would be a book… a novel…War and Peace ! Where do you start when you have War and Peace in your head? Then I began to realize it wasn’t going to be War and Peace. Not even a novel. If I could manage to do it at all it would just be a textbook. Who reads a textbook?
So finally I got the bright idea that if I could just start writing down some of the daily stories I’d eventually cover most of the topics in an incremental sort of way. I have the rest of my life to do it, after all.
Now the problem is – I know I have to keep stories concise if anybody is going to get anything out of them. But it is hard. If you know me you know how hard it is to get me to shut up once I get going.
But I STILL want to share some of the stuff that doesn’t fit. The overflow, the digressions and divergences. The cool stuff that happens at work that falls slightly outside arboriculture. Any maybe some stuff that might not “really interest anybody outside of a small circle of friends.”
