Another New Beginning
Hi again (or, for the first time, as the case may be); welcome to my new blog. Some of you know that I've had another blog for the past three-and-a-half years (it's here, if you're curious; it's also linked in the sidebar), blogging under the pseudonym of Desmond Jones (the 'male lead' from the Beatles' song 'Ob-la-di, ob-la-da'; clever, no?) (and that might clear up a mystery or two for a couple of you whom I inadvertently dropped in on, using my pseudonym; I apologize for any confusion I caused with that). Anyway, it's time for me to 'pull back the curtain', and blog as myself - I'm Craig. And my wife, who I called 'Molly' in my old blog, is Jen (OK, she's 'Jennifer', but her mother doesn't even call her that). I could tell you the names of our eight kids, but that would probably just be more confusing than the birth-order/gender designations I used in the old blog; and besides, a tiny bit of circumspection is probably a good idea, especially where my kids are concerned. (And if you know my kids' names, you can just 'translate' in your own minds when you see '1F', or '5M', or whatever. . .) Anyway, if you come by to visit here, I hope you'll enjoy the blog. Over the years, I've mostly just told stories from my life, both past and present, mixed in with occasional musings on music, or literature, or theology, or what-have-you. I've typically been posting about once or twice per week. Pretty casual, but I hope it's at least occasionally interesting and/or amusing. Anyway, for those of you who've followed my old blog, I hope you like the new place. And for those of you coming by for the first time, welcome aboard!
