Life goes by. I think about everything I see, and some of what I see I write about. Some of what I write goes here.

Oh… hi! I thought it was just me here, ruminating to myself. It’s nice to have a visitor. Are you wondering which of the 228 fellas named Michael Durbin is blogging here?

I’m the one born in downstate Illinois when John F. Kennedy was in the White House. I was raised in Maryland, spent most of my adult years in Chicago, and moved to North Carolina in 2005 when I heard the barbecue was pretty good.

By day I’m a software engineer for the banking industry. When I’m not doing that I like to write, or support of some amazing non-profits around here, and once in a blue moon do some teaching. On still rarer occasions I remember to take the trash to the curb before the truck arrives.

So that’s me.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for taking the time to read my About page, all the way to the end, even this last little clause with no purpose whatsoever.
