I have tried repeatedly to write a profound and illuminating first post, full of insight, wit, and wisdom. But, just as a child is born when it is ready to enter the world (whether the parents are ready or not), this blog is saying ‘now is the time!’, whether the words are there or not.
So, why am I finally joining the rest of the world and erecting my own personal soapbox? Primarily, because very soon my beautiful wife will give birth to our first child, a boy, and this is a place for us to share stories and images with family and friends. It is also an opportunity for me to write about the Petit-like balancing act of spiritual life, family life, and day-to-day living in New York City.
I aim to post at least once a week and hope you will return to follow our adventures. You can also subscribe to the syndicated feed using the Atom or RSS links in the ‘other’ section of the sidebar to the right, and eventually I will add email notification of new posts.
Why is this post titled ‘Hello World’? ‘Hello world’ is often the first program used to introduce a programming language. Since I am a computer programmer and this entry is the first entry I’ve ever written on the first blog I’ve ever created, it seemed appropriate.
