If You Build It, They Will Come

Noah ask God, "How do I know they will come?" God said "Build it and they will come."

When Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella heard a voice in his corn field tell him, "If you build it, they will come." He interpreted the message as an instruction to build a baseball field on his farm, upon which appeared the ghosts of Shoeless Joe Jackson and other deceased Chicago White Sox players.

When I sought a repository for the fruits of my writing hobby I looked no further than my avocation of software languages, from which I built several careers. It seemed natural that a web domain might be the siren calling me to build this website as the repository.

If the stories herein create a chuckle, a laugh, a tear or maybe sparks a thought, a memory or even better, an idea then my goal is achieved. I would like to hear about it.
