I don't do Facebook, I do emuu.net. Welcome to it.
I've got something to say
I like to build things, take photos, and write about ideas and experiences. So in '98 I built a website that reflects my interests. I've since written about living in Australia and Japan, writing a sci-fi novel, marrying the girl of my dreams, and raising a couple of healthy but lunatic kids. It's been a blast. Nowadays I find myself writing about risk management, which is what I do for a living; but I don't do that here.
If you're a member of the family you can see the kids' website here.
I named this website emuu.net after my initials, em and double-u. I told the story of its history in my journal when I realized that fifteen years had passed. I built the content management system that runs this site, I designed the two-layer software scheme that provides the performance and security.
If I had my life to live over, I'd try to make more mistakes next time. I would relax, I would limber up, I would be crazier than I've been on this trip. I know very few things I'd take seriously any more. I'd certainly be less hygenic...
I would take more chances, I would take more trips, I would scale more mountains, I would swim more rivers, and I would watch more sunsets. I would eat more ice cream and fewer beans. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones.
Oh, I've had my moments, and if I had to do it all over again, I'd have many more of them, in fact I'd try not to have anything else, just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of my day. If I had it to do all over again, I'd travel lighter, much lighter than I have. I would start barefoot earlier in the spring, and I'd stay that way later in the fall. And I would ride more merry-go-rounds, and catch more gold rings, and greet more people and pick more flowers and dance more often.
If I had it to do all over again - but you see, I don't.
