Introductions are always so difficult to write. They can range from awkward to gushing–unless of course you are Molly Wizenberg and are eloquent from the get-go.
I recall some advice I picked up a few years back suggesting writers in similar paper-writing predicaments begin writing the heart of the essay before writing the thesis, as it’s hard to introduce something you haven’t written yet. I kind of like that idea, because in all honesty, I don’t have a plan right now. As I go on, I may realize a grand Purpose but as of right now, there’s no mission statement, no shoes to fill, no judges to please. This space is for me to ramble about food when I start to see eyes glaze and hear polite would-you-look-at-the-time’s from my poor friends mid-ramble. Well, it’ll be mostly about food, but no promises that I’ll be able to prevent other thoughts from meandering into my posts.
So here we are at the beginning. I’ve been uncharacteristically long-winded, but I guess what I want to say is this: Hello dear reader, welcome to my blog.
