Alright, I've been putting it off for long enough. It's time to start writing about what I really want to be writing about. Don't get me wrong, I love sports, and I love fiction, and I love writing about sports and writing about writing fiction (and writing ficiton).
This website isn't called A Hitchiker's Guide to Reality (the GUIDE for short) because of my thoughts about sports and fiction.
Alright then, Ryan, you might be thinking, why is it called A Hitchhiker's Guide to Reality?.
Well, I have been working my way through the various layers of the GUIDE for several years now, but I think it it all really started while I was in college the first time through. I was working as a youth pastor when I had a startling realization.
I realized that I was wildly out of my depth. I had no idea either what I was doing, or what I was supposed to be doing. Some of you might even know how that feels.
Thoughts on culture, community, and development.
