Welcome to my new blog. In thinking about what to call this blog site, I wanted something other than my given name and surname; something that would capture the essence of this blog and something that was also catchy. So, I came up with Libra Lionheart. “Libra”, represents the zodiac sign of my birthday, and “Lionheart” just sounded right. A lion heart describes someone that has the swagger of a titan and the inner strength of the most fiercest species of the animal kingdom- a lion. But, I also chose this word to honor and memorialize Cecil the Lion – as his story inspired me to write again and re-ignited my writing spirit and passion…something that I had lost some time ago.
I also wanted to add a tag line to my blog and selected the Edmund Burke quote “No one made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little” as a reminder to myself and to my readers that everything you do, no matter how small, can and does make a difference in this world. And I hope that in some small way, my musings, stories, and comments may make a difference in this world; and hopefully, a positive difference.
Although many of my articles and narratives will hopefully be thought provoking and will encourage the reader to look deep within his or herself, I also hope to add a little humor, and perhaps some general observations of something I may be thinking that day. I also hope to contribute to this blog on a daily basis in an effort to keep it fresh and entertaining. So, I hope you enjoy and welcome your thoughts, comments and spirited debate.
