Hello world!

So I finally have a blog running on this site. Welcome!

I’m going by Zumajim simply because my real name is Jim and I live in the vicinity of Zuma Beach, in Malibu, CA. I don’t actually spend a lot of time at Zuma — or any other beach for that matter — as much as I’d like to. Rather, I’m a middle-class working guy with a wife, two kids, a dog and a mortgage the size of Gibraltar. So why do I live in Malibu? That’s a topic for another time but suffice it to say I’ve lived here since 1993 and hope to stay for the rest of my life, however long that is. (I’m turning 50 in a few weeks and thoughts of mortality are just more common lately. If you’re not there yet, just wait…)

Oh, and what’s the point of this blog? Will I be discoursing on all matters sublime and ridiculous? Perhaps. But really all I want is an online journal like so many of my friends keep. And I do like to let loose with the occasional rant. Living here gives me plenty of fodder for that.

So thanks for checking in — ZJ
