Every life is a story of stories. Most stories pass quickly, without notice or significance, but every now and then, a story contains a life impacting milestone. These are character and philosophical defining moments. With no audience other than myself in mind, I began recording my life transforming influences, interspersed with a record of thoughts in need of getting out of my head. It is with some apprehension that I have begun to put these musings into a forum for others to read and comment. The hope is that these thoughts will prompt self-reflection on the part of the reader, with regards to their own milestones, and irregular thoughts.
