Return of the Sasquatch, the Blog

I don't trust words.

Words give impressions of ideas that we assume resemble the thoughts of the speaker. I find myself questioning that. Written words are further removed from shared experience. Writing that seems to communicate ideas the writer had in an unstilted, conversational way is an art.

I've been using computers off and on since the late 70's. After all the science-fiction-like build-up of how many great things computers would do for us, it turns out the best application of computers is human to human communication. There are other sorts of computer programs you can play with to waste time, but the only application that has a positive return may be communication.

I chose a title to suggest moods and subjects without limiting me to anything in particular, since this is my first blog.
