WELCOME.

Greetings! Please allow me to welcome you to my CoffeeSpoons blog site. I am pleased that you stopped by, although I must admit that, at this point, I am fairly uncertain as to the frequency with which I may be posting, and also as to the specific goals and focus of this particular site. Please allow me to explain.

Blogs are a rather new thing for me. Some months ago--indeed, perhaps a year or more ago--I began to hear some rumblings about the NA Confidential blog site that was being operated by my old college chum, Roger Baylor. These rumblings caused me great interest because, although I admittedly did not know Roger well, I had found him to be a unique and thoroughly entertaining fellow during our brief association long ago. I had also, over the years, had occasion to read some of Roger's letters to the New Albany Tribune (affectionately referred to as "The 'Bune" at that time), and found myself frequently captivated by his topics, and often howling with laughter at his tongue-in-cheek writing style. When I learned that Roger was operating a blog, I knew that I had to check it out.

Shortly after logging onto the NA Confidential site for the first time, I was hooked. Having worked in an office in downtown New Albany for some 19 years now, I found myself silently chanting "amen" to the site's calls for downtown revitalization and growth. I was again amused and amazed at Roger's gift for making a point. I also quickly realized that there were other very significant contributors to the NA Confidential blog, and that they were engaged in a thoughtful dialogue designed to enhance the quality of life in our fair community. In short, I wanted to join in.

After I began reading the NA Confidential blog with some regularity, I realized that I wanted to participate by making occasional comments and responses myself. I was aware, however, that the site does not allow anonymous comments, and requires those wishing to comment to register with Blogger.com. I then began to think that it might be fun for me to operate a blog site of my own. As a result, here I am.

Initially, I viewed the primary purpose of this blog as allowing me to be able to comment , from time to time, on the NAC blog. I now think it is entirely possible that I will want to continue writing about various subjects, sharing my personal musings with you here. I envision an eclectic mixture of topics, including law, sports, hiking, entertainment, etc. We shall see.

ABOUT THE TITLE: Please do not allow the title to fool you; this blog site will not usually have anything to do with the delicious beverage known to some as "java." Rather, the title comes from my favorite poem: The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, by T.S. Eliot. In that poem, the protagonist laments that he has "measured out my life with coffee spoons." This powerful, thought-provoking line has always caused me to examine my own life, and to try to look at the big picture rather than sectioning life into small increments. Whenever I post on this blog, I will do so with an eye toward engaging in a full measure of life. T.S. wouldn't want it any other way.

ABOUT ME: I don't intend to reveal all about myself at this point, but I do think that a few basics are in order. My name is Matthew Jones, and I was born in Louisville, Kentucky in 1961. I lived in rural Floyd County until I was 11 years old, when my parents moved to Clarksville. I graduated from Clarksville High School in 1980. From there, I went to IU Southeast, where I received a B.A. in English in 1984. I then went to the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law, and received my Juris Doctor (law) degree in 1987. I've been practicing law in New Albany ever since--and I'm just as pleased as punch to be doing so.

I will reveal additional details about myself as I feel they are warranted. For now, as you have stumbled (or been directed by me) to this site, I hope that you will continue to join me frequently. It should be fun. Stay tuned.
