The Poets Motto:
“Write drunk, revise sober.”

Goal: I want to write a web/computer based application for storing all those thoughts. To explore the world, to grow in my learning and to experience God’s hand in the world. I first must learn the “new languages” of PHP, MySQL, and Wiki’s. This is a goal for this year. In the meantime, I will begin recording my thoughts and observations in here and in a wiki.
