Why Life Lessons?
Thursday, January 28, 2010
I thought about blogging for quite a while before I decided that what I was thinking would be fun to share- this accumulation of cultural information and experiences serves no purpose if not for others to share.
It seems that everyday someone is starting a new blog about almost every subject imaginable. So what makes this blog any different- or, interesting?
I suppose what makes this unique is the places I have been, doing business, at times that most people find curious. “Why in the world would you want to do that?” is a common question I get when people I meet at a party hear what I was doing for a decade in the wild west of the former Soviet Union. I have laughed hardest at the stories when I hear myself telling the things that happened- what was I thinking? But I lived to tell the story and that’s what matters- and that I share the stories with you, and you share your stories with me and others.
Here is the framework: a little of then, a little of now. Life before, and life after- as the memories unfold and connect to what they have made me today.
I hope you enjoy the process and get involved by sharing a cultural experience that a day’s post reminds you of, or ask questions about what it would be like to do something you’re hoping for.
All the best to you,
