Welcome!

Friday, June 8th, 2007—Film

This blog has been a long time coming. For the past few months, a friend has been urging me to get started. But I was resistant. Something about blogging made me a bit uneasy… In some ways it seemed to come close to replacing a relationship with God for many people who don’t have a particular faith. It gives the writer a sense that someone out there, somewhere, is reading, knowing and understanding their innermost thoughts. The idea felt strange to me, and a little sad and presumptuous.

But now that I’m finally getting to it, I think I’ll wind up getting more out of this blog than my friend will. Regardless of who does read this, reaching out and connecting isn’t sad or presumptuous: it’s hopeful and deeply human. And maybe writing here will put me back on the film track, which I’ve been off in recent years. So thanks for the push, BD.

I hope you’ll stay tuned for my posts on films and whatever other thoughts they may stir up.
