I played golf today, my first 18 holes in about a year and a half. Considering I opened with two 7's and then later managed an 8, my 90 was not all that bad. It was the first time I used my eBay clubs. The vintage Bullseye mallet is a keeper. The irons, rare Hagen 770's, felt very good. The Orlimar #3 "wood" provided most of the entertainment. The course was Deercroft, near Southern Pines and my companions collegues of my wife's at UNC-Pembroke.

It felt more like an early summer day than Halloween. There is something very Halloween about golf.

I am trying not to think too much about why I have started this weblog. I suppose it simply another attempt of mine to both reach out and open myself to others. While that impulse is not much different from sending or opening a letter, the medium is different, at least at this point to me. Unlike many, if not most, bloggers I grew up in an analog world. While I have been enthusiastically using computers for over 20 years now my sensibilities were developed in a different time. To the degree that spanning that divide might provide an interesting perspective, this little exercise in electronic communication may prove useful.

I will try to keep things short, to the point. None of us seem to have enough time these days. Or have we ever ?
