About


Hi, I’m David. This is my blog. It’s not about anything in particular; it’s just my notebook for whatever thoughts come to mind. Those will frequently have to do with space; Huntsville, AL; religion; entertainment; and writing.

If you’d like to know more about me, check out davidhitt.net.

Opinions on this blog are purely mine, and do not represent the beliefs or policy of any organization with which I am involved. Or, for that matter, likely anyone else.

The title of the blog is from a Sarah Masen song of the same name.

  1. Wow…way to go with your “whatever”. Some people never get to it.
    I am very pleased to meet you.

  2. Thanks!

  3. Wow — congrats on this all!

    I, too, am divorced and now realizing that all that time waiting was worthless — that living starts now. Yet, the aftermath of my divorce is a soap opera (one that I’m blogging about, in fact…), which is only preventing me from fully embracing it.

    Oh well. All part of the journey, I guess. Congrats on yours, and I look forward to reading your posts!

    (and btw, the side-by-side revealed what I’d expect: MUCH better sans mullet…) ;)

  4. Mikalee — Thanks, on all counts! Sorry to hear about the painful speed bumps on your journey, and hope the road ahead takes you to unexpected exciting places!

  5. Hi David, nice to meet you!

    National Aeronautics and Space Administration – WOW!

    I don’t suppose you know any really cool things about planets and space?

    hit me up if you do!

  6. Not sure how I stumbled across your blog..it’s only 6am in the morning here in a dark, foggy and autumnal England…I’m up with one of my little guys who at 5.30am this morning said “Mum…I simply CANT wait another minute for the day to start”… LOL so..it did! :o)
    Cept he’s now relaxing watching TV and I figured I’d “do something” – and that “Something” turned out to be finding you and your blog. Two random people in my life this morning…at 4am a complete stranger broke down in the lane outside my house…poor guy..it was freezing! He was surprised when I opened my bedroom window and offered him a phone and a cuppa.. :O)..and now you. I have taken some great ideas with me from having a look at your blog..and reading about your life.. Time for “whatever” starts now I think!!! Take care, and thank you! Sacha.

  7. I think making time for ‘whatever’ is catchy…I’m on my road to doing anything and everything I always wanted to do but didn’t…again another divorcee, but a difficult marriage and a messy divorce has given me great perspective of what is truly important in life…to live…!

    Loving your blog!

  8. Ah how I understand the awakening to live TODAY. Though divorced myself, it was in my spontaneous move to TN (where I had never stepped foot prior to) that I have decided to soak up all that is presented to me along the journey. What a wonderful freedom and joy that comes with embracing what each day presents. Looks like we will be living TODAY together through our writing.

    Great blog!

  9. Just don’t give up, the right person is out there. Let them find you. Whether it’s now or ten years from now. Just live and have fun.

  10. Leigh — I’m more of a human spaceflight person than a planet person, but I help with NASA education stuff online. Looking for student-type stuff or adult stuff?

    Sacha — Thanks for coming by, and for reading. Godspeed with your “whatever”! :-)

    Incognito — Yeah, funny how much of us are in the same place after divorce. Nothing like having your whole world fall apart to make you realize how much world is still how there.

    Shayna — Bravo on a great attitude. I admire your spontaneity!

    Booksphotographsandartwork — Thanks!

  11. Thanks.
    nice to meet you

  12. Hi David,
    Great blog! You mentioned that it has evolved over time – what changes did you make? How did you know that your direction was the right one?
    Thanks!

  13. I started the blog around the time I got engaged to someone, an engagement that only lasted a few months afterwards. At the time, I had a blog where I wrote about news and topics that were of interest to me; I started this one as a companion to hers, which was more about day-to-day life.

    Since then, I’ve abandoned the other blog, and broadened this one from just writing about life to being a place where I can also basically write essays about whatever’s on my mind. Essentially, it’s my writer’s notebook, where I can do whatever free-form writing I want.

    As far as the direction being the right one, that’s relative, I guess. The traffic has increased over time, but I have no illusions that it’s going to be a “successful” blog by any objective standards, but I really enjoy blogging here, so that’s the standard that matters to me.

  14. I recently published a link to your post regarding e-readers (Sunsets vs. Hot Chocolate) in one of my posts. Way to go, you’ve got a great blog going!

  15. Hi David,

    Great blog! You must be acquainted with Eu’genius’ Banks…and you must be quick on your feet to maintain a spot in F2F. Congrats!

  16. Yep, I know Gene quite well, and am blessed to do so.

  17. Most folks do not extremely need freedom, as a result of freedom involves responsibility, and most folks are scared of responsibility.- Sigmund Freud
