These are the existential questions Tom Stoppard would pose were he alive today. Oh ... he is alive? ... does he have a blog?
Never mind! We're off subject. The point is, I don't plan to answer or even ask (rhetorically or otherwise) those questions. I don't even plan to answer the question of why you should read and subsequently bookmark this blog. (Though, if I were going to ask such a question, the answer would just be a picture of my cat, Smokey, in a tie.)
|How could you deny that face?|
Certain things must be established, I suppose, considering this is the ceremonial first blog post. For instance, I should probably mention that the purpose of this blog is to host my short fiction and also pictures of my cat (seen above) wearing ties--the peanut butter and jelly of blog topics.
So read along! Or don't ... I don't have much authority over you unfortunately.
