The Mission Explained – Part II – The Author

There is reasoning behind dividing the explanation into multiple parts.  The primary factor is that at some point I was going to have to exclusively write in the first person for an extended portion, something I am not particularly fond of.  This means it gets separated   as to not disrupt the rest of it.  Whenever people indulge in any type of media, it seems as though there is a need to know the author’s motives, or spend the experience trying to figure them out.  This can take the place of actually getting anything from the piece.  In Part Two of my mission explanation I will attempt to show that the motive I have is a place for people to read and think and why this is the case.

First I will begin by saying that I have had a great life, probably one of the best ever.  I would even go so far as to say that my life could be ranked just behind all of the Royals, Aristocrats, and Corporate Leaders.  I have had constant shelter, indoor plumbing, sometimes air-conditioning, and lived in an era of refrigeration and too many other technological advancements in the past 20 years to mention.  Considering that last sentence I have possibly had it better than some Kings or at least feudal lords, but I digress.  I also understand that in the past 50 years some have had it as good or better than me, and many others much worse.  While elaboration of this point could go on, its hopefully a small window into not necessarily the topics I want to write about, but more where I am coming from when doing so.

The next piece about myself are the people and places that I have encountered, shaping how and why I think about so many various topics.  I have had the fortune to travel and live in many different places, from small towns to large metropolitan areas.  These experiences have given me the opportunity to meet, associate, and befriend many different types of people.  I believe that by being around all of these different places and people it has at least given the process I use to think about anything, a wide ranging perspective.

Lastly I would like to discuss how my education and overall demeanor affect and shape the mission.  To begin, I do not believe, in fact I am well aware of the fact that ‘Mensa’ status is one that myself is never going to achieve.  I am also not a journalist or trained writer by any stretch of any definition of those two words.  On the other hand, I have been fortunate enough to have a solid enough education where I can formulate some thought provoking ideas and even paragraphs.  Its my hope that my work will be able to resonate with as many people as possible.  However, the other side to this is that I have a wide range of emotions and moods, often times predicated on nothing more than some amount of time has passed.  Prefacing these two points are important to note when it seems tough to understand why, how and what is being added to this space.

Hopefully this section has provided some perspective into who I am, so that understanding what the goal is for the content.
