I am writing my first blog post. I am not very tech savvy and obviously need more technical training and experience in setting up a website. May I please ask for your patience while I get everything set up like it should be? Over time, I hope to invoke thought, inspire others, learn, meet new people, and, hopefully, develop a following. I would like to thank my family for their support and encouragement. I will be taking away precious time from them to maintain and support my website. I am blessed by the grace of our good Lord, God Almighty, to have the freedom and forum to express my ideas and thoughts. I chose Mountain Thoughts as my website design because I love being in the mountains. They somehow make me feel unencumbered and free. Most who inhabit or trek to the mountains know of the power they hold.

In this ever-changing world, I plan on writing my thoughts and ideas about many topics. I encourage others to share, inspire, contend, and argue. I would encourage those who post here to keep things positive. We all have opinions and just because another opinion may be different from our own does not make it wrong.

Believe it or not, I am a very private person which contradicts what a blog writer represents. The opinions I have are strong and this is a forum where I feel I can express them. This is the first step in my journey. Please wish me luck and thank you for reading.
