I have been a witness to history. I have been a participant, however small, in the history that has shaped my world. But sometimes, when I read the official histories, the authoritative histories, the most repeated histories of my own life and times … they don’t match what I saw.
I hope to make this a record, of small moments and unknown people which sometimes get dropped from descriptions of larger events, of small changes which sometimes contribute to larger trends, and of what I witness from my own perspective.
This is what I’ve seen.
I plan to use this space for more complete stories and Twitter for more immediate observations, but I’ll hopefully be able to link back and forth between both story-telling platforms.
