A long time ago I purchased a domain with nearlyfreespeech.net, http://www.clayshanks.com. You can still go there, but there is nothing on the site. I purchased a book on html and css coding. Ultimately I learned enough to build the foundation, but then determined that the time that it would take to complete would be better spent on other projects. Those other projects are what I wish to share on this site. This will be the home of all of my collected words, including stories, poems, and lyrics. It will be the home of adventures and projects. Eventually I will upload some original songs. For now, I’ll keep it short and sweet and simply say, welcome.
