As someone who writes, sharing one’s experiences for the public benifit is my obligation. My experiences or insights on those experiences may or may not benefit you but i do appreciate your indulgence. I am a man, a husband, a father, a son, a brother, an uncle, a friend, a coworker, and an enemy. I am an artist and a writer, a hero and a coward. I know a great many things about nothing in particular. There is so much that I don’t know, it makes me feel like an idiot. Today, I feel like choosing a topic today and just writing about that. After all, that’s what a web journal is for.

The nature of the relationship between men and women is a complex one. It is a constant balance. Upheaval and overcorrection. It’s probably the one thing we spend most of our lives trying to get right. (And it seems to me that we just give up in the end.) I must say that, as a husband and father, I spend a lot of time learning what about how men and women interact  and communicate with each other.  Despite my best efforts to create a harmonious relationship,  the rules are based upon a complex set of variables that sometimes make me feel like I’m trying to shoot a game of pool on a waterbed.  Fortunately, there are many factors that you as a man, can control. AND we men are very lucky to have women who are endlessly willing to teach us the rules. (God bless ’em!)   So join me as we explore the subtle nuances of male and female interation from my perspective.  Who am I?  Just a guy trying to figure things out.

Ah yes — “the rules” of the man/woman relationship are made to be broken, but we women are definitely more than happy to update you (sometimes in a very elevated voice, if necessary to get our point across!).
I dig your blog — keep up the fun posts!

(Thanks for linking to mine — I’ll link yours the next time I update)
