my blog is for me

I love all of you, my peers and fans.
And though some people blog for attention (I did at first, too) the main reason I am blogging is to learn more about myself.
By seeing my feelings written out, I see myself in a new way, and can evaluate myself.
When I write, I let flow whatever it is that comes to my mind. If I were trying to impress all of you I would carefully think about each word for maximum coolness. but most of the time the audience I am addressing is me, as I know I will be reading my stuff later.
And so now, I want to write about my dream.
I want an island retreat, and a small fleet of fast ocean going ground effect boats. I want to make a haven for hackers and hippies in the Dutch Antilles, sort of a Galt's Gulch (for those of you who have read atlas shrugged) A place where people I chose will be able to party and speak freely without the overhead of Christian or patriotic posturing or moral correctness this country demands at every checkpoint. (oh yes, I am a patriot, a true constitutionalist, and a Christian, though probably not in any church sense) Our island will have electric cars, nearly free power (generated by solar, wind, and wave), and will concentrate on self sustainability. Hydroponics plus the ocean will provide our food. And, like Heaven's Gate our principle export will be software and web service (and other technical services). It will start with the boat, which myself and a few already chosen friends will crew, while we charter back and forth to Europe. I will be offering backpackers and other budget travelers thirty days in Europe , travel room and board for under a thousand dollars. Especially popular, I'm sure, will be the Amsterdam trips, twice a year for the Cup, and Queen's day.
Of course Octoberfest in Germany will probably bring a few also. I want the kind of tourist who takes a month, not a day, to get to know a place.
Lastly, I want to be in a life free from the dark overhead of my past in this country. Yeah I did get busted for weed, and I am really sorry I broke the law, but having to be branded for the rest of my life about it isn't my idea of justice. When I was young the joke "this is going on your permanent record" was a joke, now we have computers, nothing goes away here, nothing is ever forgiven, or redeemed. my "debt" to society will never be paid. so fuck em. I'm outee. The rat race is over, the rats have won.
Me I'm getting out before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.
Hope this finds you well,

Blogging serves many purposes doesn't it? Probably there are as many reasons for blogging as there are bloggers...

I came back and reread this post. I really would love to be a part of something like that. Hard work, but so satisfying. The travel plans sound pretty good too.

Keith, I've had a similar idea for years, I actually shocked sharks when I told him about it He thought he was the only one. Great minds yada yada...

I'd love to join that project, because god/dess knows I am sick of a society I could never fit into. There are more and more of us, I think, people who can't or won't conform to the mainstream...

Sharks, when do we set sail, darlin?
