About the Writer
There’s a common joke in the philosophy department: could God create a degree so useless even he couldn’t get a job with it?
Well, in my defence, I got two. (Exponentially useless?)
I created the Soapbox in 2010 as a personal platform to write and keep busy. I also use it to post copious amounts of photos of my pets on the internet.
Should readers gain some knowledge or entertainment from my efforts – bonus!
If I can prompt some constructive thought now and again, I’m happy, but if not, I’m ultimately ambivalent.
Being a dog owner is something that dominates the Soapbox far more than I originally intended, but I’m prepared to call this a “dog blog” with some off-topic smatterings throughout.
Dog ownership for me began in 2008 when the Husband and I got our first dog, Moses, a Newfoundland. The Husband had always had dogs growing up, but coming from a cat-household, it was a whole new endeavour for me.
But I don’t do anything half-assed. So, in October 2011, we adopted our second Newfoundland, Alma, from a rescue organization in Montana.
This blog, its motive, and its contents have changed a lot from my original intentions, and will continue to change from time to time, so I make no warrantees or guarantees with respect to insight, humour, quality or quantity.
But I do promise to approve all comments posted (except spam), even if they violently disagree with me.
Oh, and we also have two cats who also make occasional cameo appearances on the Soapbox.
In sum: thanks for stopping by and I welcome any sort of comment or reply.
