Welcome to my blog. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you find my musings interesting.

My name is Mark. Some people, over the course of my life, have referred to me as “Bochie,” in polite recognition of my surname – Bochkis. There have also been other nicknames, which need not be mentioned (but perhaps will be at some future point). For the purpose of this blog, we’ll stick to the nickname I do prefer.

In this little corner of the Interwebs, I aim to share a few thoughts on topics that are important and/or interesting to me. That’s pretty broad, isn’t it? Let’s better define what these “stabs at reality” should accomplish.

First and foremost, this is a vehicle for personal expression. Writing has always been cathartic for me. Unfortunately, I rarely engage in the practice outside of my job (I am lucky to be gainfully employed as a marketing copywriter).  I am hoping that this blog will help me to more regularly explore my internal reality and the joy of personal writing.

The other aim is to engage you, the reader, with thought-provoking content. I have an active mind and wide-ranging interests. Current events, politics, sports, history, space, science, science fiction, future, chaos and travel are some of the things that fill up my brain space. Periodically, I’ll be sharing my brilliant (sarcasm font) thoughts on these external factors of my reality.

Lastly, I am hoping that this information exchange is not entirely one-way. I am forever interested in how other people think and experience things. If a particular blog post resonates, strikes a chord or otherwise moves you, I encourage you to leave a comment. Feedback is entirely appreciated. And if I can foster an interesting conversation, the better.
