Today marks the 2nd anniversary of Late To The Game and, to me, that is a pretty significant milestone. This blog started out as a cathartic thing, at the time I was dealing with some pretty significant depression and anxiety and needed an outlet, something that allowed me a moment to escape reality but also do something creative. A friend suggested keeping a daily list of things I was grateful for and thus, among a smattering of poetry, the original series on this blog ‘Things I’m Grateful For‘ was borne.
I kept that series up until earlier this year when I discovered I was getting what I needed from my other weekly series and, while I may start it again sometime, for now it is taking a rest.
To me, Late To The Game is a place I can talk about the things I love, whether it is a movie I grew up with, an album that I love, the latest in SCIFI Television, or a tv series that is a major part of who I am, this is my chance to share these wonderful things with the world. Recently I have had the opportunity to expand my reviews to some new independent films and even got in a few interviews with some actors of those very films.
One thing I am very grateful for are the people who have followed me on this journey. Whether you are here for my regular discussion on Star Trek or just because you enjoy my perspective on things, I am very grateful you have chosen to stay along for the ride. While you are all very dear to me I want to call out some of my followers who have taken the time to comment or like just about everything I post.
