Third Time’s a Charm…


1082394457_1059So far as I know, this is the third attempt at blogging I have made in as many years. There was my self-published Columbia mess, one made on Blogger, and finally – worst of all, I’d wager – a little ditty put together on Apple’s iWeb software. Shudder. I’ve been given more chances at personal expression than any young adult has a right to.

But I am trying again, and this time I swear you’ll see some effort. What’s holding me to my promise? Delusions of grandeur, of course. This blog ( is part of a two-pronged effort to get myself heard, to raise my voice to a volume at which hopefully someone will listen. Prong one – this blog – is the source for late-breaking Henning rants and raves. News, too, if anything actually happens to me. Prong two is a website that looks wonderful in my mind; a Twinkie bursting with creative creme. Or at least just good YouTube links. Do I have anything to say worth your time? I’d like to think so, but that’s ultimately for you to judge. All I can do is synthesize words, sentences, and paragraphs and hope they’re at least a little entertaining*.

Over time I hope to figure out some sort of angle for this blog, some unique quality that makes Lifting Fog stand out amidst the millions of other competitors. I doubt that’s coming anytime soon, though – like me, this whole thing is a work in progress.

* as my introductory post, of course, this does not need to be entertaining.
