I started this blog in an attempt to express myself in ways that I can’t do in 100 some-odd characters.

I’m from humble beginnings.  I am a humble person but, I do have opinions which I will state here from time to time.  I am human, am capable of being wrong and sometimes I actually am.

I use commas WAY too much….and ellipses….I love those….

I have my own ideas about Religion.

I have no love of ANY politician. If I happen to compliment one from time to time…well…miracles happen.
I am often a HUGE fan of common sense.

I’m a geek and a nerd in all senses of the word…and I am proud of that.

    Enjoying your blog…read your last few posts and they’re all great, so rather than comment on each, I thought I’d leave one central comment here. Agree so much with your outlook on Good Man or Not… Happy anniversary! 14 years…wonderful! You look like an awesome family. And the story you tell about that sad girl at the church…words fail me. Beautiful photos…

  2. Eric Syrdal says:

    Thank you!! I appreciate the kind response!

  3. Hmm… Own ideas about religion, overuse of ellipses, fan of common sense, a geek *and* a nerd (they’re totally different, ask a geek…or a nerd). Also, your banner. I think we’re going to get along just fine. 🙂

  4. Big fan of ellipses myself…smiles. I look forward to reading your words…

    Hello, Eric… I found you through Vic’s blog. Your poetry is just amazing! I’m very new to blogging, but I’ve been writing for a while myself. Looking forward to following along!

  17. I don’t know why I never read this page before… but I really never thought I’d find anyone who loves ellipses as much as I do! I can’t control myself… they are everywhere. Also a nerd… who questions religion… and adores common sense (which so many people lack). Oh, I tend to use parentheses too much as well. Apparently, I have a lot of punctuation issues. 🙂

  18. chesca says:

    I just happened to find your blog. And I absolutely love it. This is a unique view point. I feel that I found another weird creature like me! I haven’t yet expressed my thoughts fully in my blog. I hope to learn more from your pieces 🙂
