Sometimes we need to speak. Not to talk to any one in
particular, but just a need for expression. And this is my
space... My opinions, my random thoughts, and general
statements. Not meant to harm, or to hurt, but just to be
In September 2003, I started to occasionally comment on things
that came to mind, or things I came across whilst living life. The
result is Lloyd Borrett's Blog.
Check it out for yourself.
In June 2004, I moved this web site to a different
hosting company. With the move came access to a wide variety
of new services, which enabled me to establish phpBB based
forums. If you want news about this web site, want to leave
me some feedback, discuss

The Journal Becomes a Blog
As I established the year 2000 version of my web site,
I thought would try something a bit different — an online journal.
Well the way I implemented the concept was way too
complicated to maintain and as a result the journal just
didn't happen. Since then the weblog concept has taken off
and many ways to easily implement them have become
available. So in September 2003, I decided to try again using
Lloyd Borrett's Blog is a place to put some random thoughts and ideas. Maybe it will grow into something much more.
Maybe it will be a place where I can speak my mind. To
share experiences, feelings, perceptions, a nice thought...
to share myself openly to the unknown reader. Maybe a few
of you will touch me in return in your own ways. And that
in itself would be priceless.
No doubt I'll be questioned as to why I would do this.
Why would I open myself up to "the world?" Maybe this
journal will prove to be senseless.
But maybe it will become something that I look to for
memories. Something that I will look to for inspiration.
Maybe the words in themselves will become a form of
creativity outlet for me.
Sometimes there is a purpose... sometimes there isn't
one that is obvious, but later the purpose reveals itself in other
We always hope that when we die, we will leave this huge
imprint on the world. I write in this journal so that
perhaps I can share something, and maybe touch someone. If
I say something to a stranger and he/she later recalls
it... then I have touched that person. If I can show
someone something... then I have touched them. And in
touching them... whether in thought or action... I have
left my mark on the world.
But most of all, I have lived... I have loved life.
Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.
