The Thoughts Count

What's going through my mind.

Why the Thought Counts

On the High Line

Several friends have suggested to me that I should write a general blog. I’ve always rejected the idea. Writing on my food blog was enough. I didn’t think people would be that interested in anything I had to say. While I’ve always tinkered with the idea, I came to the conclusion that the already cluttered online world didn’t need another blog expounding on who knows what.

But maybe social networking has warped our sense of what matters, what’s important. If no one is clicking, viewing, reading, listening or watching, then what’s the point? The point is the thought. It counts. Writing about any of the many things I come across each day, relating it to me and what I know, is exercising my thought muscle. It helps to connect me to where I’ve been, to who I am, where I’ve come from and to surmise about what the future holds. It doesn’t matter if anyone other than myself is privy to these thoughts. Of course, there are plenty of people who will be if I choose to publish it online — in fact it could become a much more permanent part of my persona than anything I do in life because once it gets out there, even if I change my views, myself, those previous thoughts remain as a testament to what I was thinking at that point in time. But, that can become a part of where I came from. So I’ve decided to share some of my thoughts. I have an interest in almost everything. I love to read, travel, play the guitar; I enjoy theater, baseball, food, music, movies, politics, art, news. I am interested in finding out about other places, people, theories. I’m genuine in my interest — but to varying degrees depending on the subject. It’s the curiosity that drove me to become a journalist and that has burgeoned the longer I’ve worked. Maybe others will be interested in feeding off of my curiosity. Or perhaps I’ll be the one shouting in the forest and no one will hear me. But no matter, I’ll be thinking and that’s what counts.
