The Purpose of this Project
I used to keep a Diary on the Internet, for all to read. I was one of the first to do so!
I've decided, after many years of increasingly frank honesty, that an unedited Diary on the Internet is no longer important to me.
Instead, I want to focus my public writings on observations that do not strike so close to the people I care about.
So, this new online project will describe my observations and my reactions to the events within my perceptual well -- such as the books I read, the sunsets I see, the activities of strangers, and the thoughts that rush around inside of my head.
People have found my observations to be interesting in the past, so I will continue to offer them here.
I used to go by the online handle "Virtual Exile" at http://virtualexile.net, but I've abandoned that moniker, for reasons that I'll probably write about later.
I'm keeping my pen name, Matthew Dominic Hunter, although I now understand the reasons for this pen name much more than before. I'll probably write about that later too. There is plenty for me to write about! More than I can ever hope to record.
