From an early age we’re encouraged to think for ourselves and not just to follow the crowd.  Easier said than done.  After all, we’re continually exposed to the “truths” offered by the conventional wisdom on most any subject.  Breaking out of the mold doesn’t happen all that often, but most of us have, from time to time, managed to do just that.  Whether we’re “right” or “wrong” it’s a most satisfying and occasionally exhilarating experience.

Catch My Drift represents my efforts to bring a fresh, entertaining and frequently off-beat point of view to a wide variety of subjects (politics, economics, sports, human behavior, etc.) that are largely familiar to all of you.  As a teacher, writer and full-time interested observer I believe I can deliver some “added value” to readers trying to make sense of what’s going on out there.  Hopefully, my efforts will encourage you to do the same and to share with me some of your own unconventional musings.
