"Call me Ishmael"

"History is a relentless master. It has no present, only the past rushing
into the future. To try to hold fast is to be swept aside."
John F. Kennedy

Regardless of where you were born, what way of thinking you subscribe to, or what your views on Nihilism are most of us desire to be remembered. Some of us see having great wealth or a great industry as a way to be remembered. Still, others see power as the way to ensure your name will be on every history exam. I've never had my checking account top a few hundred dollars and I can't even get my cats to stop tearing apart our Christmas presents. So for me, the best way I can figure to leave at least a footnote of a footnote on the pages of history is to write. What will be in this blog? Everything. My fascination with history is sure to play out at some point and maybe even a few guest posts from some internet friends. Who knows, maybe someday I'll rub elbows with a famous person and they'll stop by for a Q and A. So just a few examples of content would be religious discussions, trivia about history or a great movie or book, my advice on life situations (that one will be decidedly short), and, for those of you more stimulated by pictures than words, a few cute cat pictures or frames from any awesome vacation I take. So if you dare to trudge on and are brave enough to continue I guess all I can say is  "Make it so" "May the odds be ever in your favor" "May the Force be with you" "Live long and prosper" and any other awesome send off you can think of. See you tomorrow ~ JM
