DennisI began writing in my personal journal during the summer of 2014. At first, my journal entries were only a couple sentences long. Each morning I would write down the first few thoughts that popped into my head.

Over time, these journal entries started to vary in length. Some days I would would sit and write several paragraphs. The words started to flow.

As Anne Lamott says in Bird by Bird, “…I’d start writing without reining myself in. It was almost just typing, just making my fingers move. And the writing would be terrible.”

One year later, these simple journal entries gave me the inspiration to try and write my own articles. After a bit of practice and a great deal of nervous tension, I decided to start this blog.

I would like to share my writing with others in the hope that my stories might resonate with others.

As Brené Brown, in Daring Greatly, writes:

Connection is why we’re here; it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.

With that in mind, I have narrowed down the themes of my blog to:

About Dennis

I have lived in Scotland for the past 13 years, but I am originally from New Jersey, USA. After graduating from University in Baltimore, I travelled abroad to Ireland and then to Scotland. While in Scotland, I met my wife! We now have 3 children and an abundance of Lego.

I work in technology and my past roles have included Web Design, Website Development and Business Analysis.

I am searching for the next book to read and the time to write my own.

Random fun fact: I once met Eddie Vedder. It was 1995 and Eddie was playing with his sideband, Hovercraft, as the opening act for the Foo Fighters. My friends and I waited outside of the Black Cat in Washington D.C. and when he appeared late at night I asked for an autograph. Eddie said, “I don’t do autographs, but I’ll shake your hand.” We shook hands, he jumped on his tour bus and I went home happy.
