Choosing the first topic to write about on BrooWaha presented a conflict. I thought of just jumping in and writing like I'd been here for months, but it just didn't sit well. It felt like walking into a party full of people who didn't know me, ripping open a bag of chips and squeezing in between two people engaged in a conversation.
As always, I watch myself think and question my impressions and assumptions. On reflection, I realized that the reason I cannot just make like the Broos and say nothing of it is because I've come to know this place as a community instead of just a newspaper or article bank. The common denominator among the writers I've been fortunate enough to read is they are human. Human is rare these days and therefore, an epic find.
So before I launch into writer mode, I'd like to meet you and tell you that I'm grateful to have discovered you; I look forward to learning from you and, if I do my part well, adding something of benefit to your experience. I hope you'll introduce yourself to me and share your views. I look forward to doing the same.
