I’ve been blogging on and off since the turn of the century (you can find more about that in the links below). This blog iteration is to give me a place to post some stories, think out loud about what I’ve been reading, and to rant about the general state of the world.

My Twitter feed (@Patadave) describes me as a librarian, reader, amateur gardener, lover of naps, and an abderitic, which is a pretty fair summation. The link below about Patahistory explains why I’m @Patadave, and the link about Abderitic Review explains what it means to be abderitic.

I suppose the only other thing to add is that I’m a hobbyist fiction writer, so I’ll be posting some stories here.

Thanks for stopping by!
