Everyone always asks me how I came up with the blog’s title, Flux Capacitating, so here it is: about the time I was thinking about starting a blog I also got it my head that Drew and I would have a Back to the Future party on the date that Marty McFly travels to in the second movie. I couldn’t remember the date, only that it was some time in 2015 (October 21 to be exact–if you know us in 2015, keep an eye out for an invite to our party) so of course I turned to Mr Google which then lead to watching Back to the Future about 15 times and somehow out of all of that I turned the ubiquitous and completely fabricated Flux Capacitor into a verb. I guess you could say that Michael J. Fox made me do it, but in a round about way, it does make sense in my mind–I’m blogging as a way of moving through time, archiving our past so that we can go back if we need to, but also so that we know what we’re doing when we start looking to the future. See, and you thought I was just making stuff up.
I am bound to my nostalgia, verbosity and curiosity, and to the mountains that have have been the backdrop for this life of mine all these years. I am prone to repeating myself, getting a little too enthusiastic, procrastination, and relaxing when I should be getting a move on. I like pretty things and old things and underdog things and I especially like emotive things and unexpected things. I’m married to my college sweetheart and proud to have one darling little red-headed boy call me Mama every day. I believe in fostering community and turning to your village, and I most certainly believe that if one is good, two is generally better.
I think that pretty well sums it up, if you have any appetizer ideas for that party of ours in 2015, don’t hesitate to say so.
