It is in the same tail-between-my-legs-way, that I start this my first blog post.
You see, I come from a 'private' family --at least one of the branches of it is. We are forger-aheaders. We solve problems and make choices that make sense. We look for the silver lining and celebrate the hell out of it. We practice gratitude for all of the concrete blessings we experience and posses...

And I must confess that I feel a little thrill in my fingertips at the thought that I am about to press the "Publish" button!
