Welcome. This is an experiment, really . . . and while possibly not the best use of blog-space, blogging is on my list of things I want to do. The title speaks for itself. I have no particular axe to grind, no particular cause to promote. Instead, "Beats Talking to Myself" provides a forum for me to muse about various topics,as well as to share some of the essays and stories I’ve already written, most of which are unpublished (story of the writer’s life).
