Thoughts on Turning 50

I woke up this morning and found myself 50 years old. It is a significant moment, a momentous occasion, a milestone worthy of celebration and revelry. Except that it isn’t.

Paul is a writer, artist and designer. He spends an inordinate amount of time on the Internet blogging about silly things and even more time making things up and then attempting to convince people they are proper stories. He also talks into microphones from time to time.

Not really, I’ll stop that now.

But yeah, that’s pretty much it. I’m a writer and an artist. I like to watch baseball and I am deeply in love with sci-fi and fantasy. In real life I work as a Web developer & designer, I have five dogs and a beautiful daughter who dances. This network is a way to share my stories and interests in a (hopefully) entertaining way. It is a creative outlet. In time I would like this to grow, to be a place where others can contribute and share, debate & swap ideas. For now it is a place to highlight my achievements & shamelessly self-promote. But more than anything it is a place to tell stories. So I’d like to tell you a story. If you’d like to hear it I would love it if you took a moment to check it out.
