Hello, I'm Ken. This is my 4-year-old Shetland Sheepdog named Kiyomi. I thought I'd say 'Hello', to let you know there's a person behind the text. _"Flesh and blood, hopes and desires, warts and all."_
During the halcyon days of BBSes and IRC, I used to "toss my bottle into the ocean". This is an odd concept of mine where I'd strike up a conversation with a complete stranger, tell my story, and hope for a story in reply. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. Sometimes it had wonderful results but I was too immature to handle it. Sometimes they were.
So this is my bottle onto the waves of Google Plus…
The Bible begins "In the Beginning was the Word". Dexter Palmer writes in his novel, The Dream of Perpetual Motion to "say something, say anything, but it all begins with a word."
So what do I say to start this story?
"Hello World"… no, too cliche.
"Once upon a time…"
"It was a dark and stormy night…"
No, none of these things.
