Welcome to my first attempt at keeping a blog. In the past I have created travel blogs for specific places but I’ve never had any kind of forum for my random thoughts, or ramblings – hence the site name.

At The Huron LookoutAs an experiment, I am going to do my best to post something every day for one year, then see how it goes after that; if the project gets too overwhelming or time consuming I’ll slow down my postings.

Setting out on this little experiment I had to wonder, OK, what in the world does little me have to blog about and, quite frankly, who would care if I did? Why a blog and why at this time of my life, when I see my 60th year approaching on the horizon? A time for reflection, perhaps? Well, I don’t really know for sure but I’ll take the same philosophy as I did when setting up my photo sites – I do it just for the fun of it. There are worse things, I guess.

Scattered throughout my posts I’ll talk about whatever comes to mind, but I think I’ll be leaning in the direction of topics such as music, photography, food, the annoyances of urban living, fun or quirky things found in the city, rants, pets, Toronto, family and friends, books, travel, gay life, musings, the province of Alberta, an occasional poem or quote, and basically any of the general stuff that makes up our lives. Through all of this I’ll endeavour to stay on the lighter side of things, as there’s enough doom and gloom in our world today as it is.

So, here goes nothing. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
