This Blog is a natural extension of this process, but not its end-purpose. It's a continuation of what I started six or seven years ago in the Blogosphere and that I now understand has to have a responsible closure. You see, I'm a dad. As a parent we are always wondering what is it that we leave behind for our kids. We question what is the legacy we place at the foot of their influences. This will be one of the things I leave for my daughter to witness, digest and reflect upon. A diary of sorts that can assist her in managing her way through a country and world that is far more complicated than the one I came to know growing up. Each video clip, note, posting or link will, in future years, assist her in navigating the core basics of just being an American Citizen. It won't be perfect, nor is it my intent to be purely objective. I am biased and pliable only to the influences to which I've been exposed. But I will try and question even my own preferences and leanings, no matter how unnatural that may come about. Hopefully she will learn from, agree with, laugh at, or simply scoff at her Dad's intentions. It does not matter what she gets from it, I will feel good just making the effort. I will have given her my reference points so that she can build hers. There is nothing else, is there?
So with this, I hope you enjoy the journey with me. Feel free to post a comment, no matter your angle. Opinions are welcomed.
