Hello! I’m Jules. And I am NOT new to blogging. But this is a new blog site for me. I have finally entered into the real world of blogging–okay, maybe not real world, just the world where I pay to share my thoughts. I will keep my other nonpaid site (ohyesjulesdid.wordpress.com) active, but most of my posts will now be featured on this site: The J Word. I will begin with posts in my usual areas of music, politics, and education. I invite your engagement. Let’s explore the world through words, images, and sound together. The more we engage in this world, the more we can find common ground and acceptance–and combat the division and sectarianism we face in today’s society and the world.
