Hesitant about just how to begin. I suppose that blogging tends to be about the author, one way or another. Begining needn't be about a past which needs to stream through that beginning; it can be a portal to something fresh.

Why broken jourmey? Naming yourself on the internet is quite a singular thing. There's a real aspect of freedom to create yourself. So why any name?

Two connotations. Where a break in a journey is enforced; and where, alternately, the break is willed and chosen. Where, when enforced, the break might be bleak or traumatic; and, when chosen, an opportunity for joy.

So, what journey? The simple answer is that the journey is that of life and living. The more complex answer has the journey as through meaning and becoming.

There is something constant and enduring in that journey, but it belongs on a plane which hides as shyly as any feral creature.
The journey is broken when connection with that plane is lost. The journey is broken when choosing to turn from it to the warmth of sharing meaning with others.
