All journeys begin with a first step.
So today, on a particularly rainy and grey day in an otherwise golden Waikato summer, I have decided to start a blog, to see what all the fuss is about. Perhaps the process will allow me to clear my thoughts, or perhaps it will simply be some sort of messy soup of jumbled thought and language that will just serve to confuse and upset anyone that might read this. Indeed, perhaps I shall incorporate things dear to me, which would of course be language. I love language, everything about the living language is fascinating to me. Cursory evolutionary linguistics and just casual parlance boggle me and make me so appreciative of simply how amazing the English language can be. To be certain, it is no longer simply England's English that we all speak, and indeed never has there ever been any standardisation of English in the slightest. Even now, the word processor is telling me off for my British was of spelling with an 's' instead of a 'z'. Fascinating stuff. Well, thats about it for today, hopefully I'll keep adding to this in the future.
