The Definition Struggle

In begining this project, I find myself fighting to avoid the temptation to pepper every post with caveats and warnings. “I’m not a scholar,” “I’m not an expert,”  “You probably already know this.”

But so frequently we define things by what they are not, and I’d rather let this take shape without those boundaries. I want to find out what this will be by doing it, rather than making a long list of what I won’t do.

So no, I’m not a scholar, or an expert, and this will by no means be a perfect exploration of any given topic. But I am enthusiastic, moved by stories, and eager to learn more. I’m letting myself believe that that will be enough.
