We conceived on the first try.
I understand if that's more than you needed to know.
It also happens to be true.
I wanted to start this web log with one true thing.
How do I know this is one true thing?
I'd rather not get into the intricacies of it all, but trust me, it's one true thing.
I have made the shift from writing a poli-blog, where there are very few "true things" let alone one, to a blog that is very personal and that I hope will be much more enjoyable to read. After all, that is the purpose of writing, right? To have it read.
I write a screenplay so it can be made, not so it can sit in my drawer. I write this so it can be read. If it gets a good following, them perhaps we turn it into a community, one where we learn together on this little ride.
I'm about the be a father.
Not really "about" to be... it's going to take another six months.
But, I am the male in the equation, therefore, in six months, I'll be the proud father to a little VanDijk. We don't know the sex yet, but my wife seems convinced, as does my mother, that it's a girl.
My wife, Angela, who pens the lovely blog, the actors wife, has not been sick. (knock wood) We have not had to deal with the dreaded morning sickness.
She's had other issues - she's always hot, which is not normal for she-of-the-wool-sweater-in-June. And she was awake at midnight. For those of you who know my wife, that's three hours past her normal bed time.
Things seem to be moving along swimmingly.
So, this is the first of many posts that will hopefully be as interesting and enjoyable to you to read as they are enlightening for me to write.
