blogs can be (ab)used for so many purposes. Surely the most successful individual blog provides a window into the life and thoughts of an individual. A public diary .. yes .. but so much more. An output from the journey, the ramblings of the mind, and a chance to catch up in sopwithworld (tom flavour).
My hope, as you browse here, that you discover the same Tom as you would over beer or coffee and a couple of sweet hours. I have thoroughly appreciated sharing in the lives of significant friends via their blogs where distance and time have prevented the luxury of a closer communication. I hope you will echo that appreciation by dwelling here for a while.
To begin, I undertake a slightly bizarre multi-part self analysis by way of introduction and context setting. It also reminds me who I am .. the order is unimportant, except that part 1 is definitely first .. the rest of me certainly flows from there.
Tom is (pt1) .. a Christian
Tom is (pt2) .. a family man
Tom is (pt3) .. a youth pastor
Tom is (pt4) .. English
Tom is (pt5) .. a boy
Tom is (pt6) .. ESFJ
