Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

long live the shockers says my broken heart

“ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END” – There is an end to everything, to good things as well. The proverb dates back to about 1374 (Chaucer). First attested in the United States around 1680. The word ‘good’ was added much later. ‘Everything has an end’ and ‘Everything comes to an end’ are variants of the proverb.


In the end, we are undone, perhaps in only our current form through treachery, deceit and selfishness – all qualities that are, ironically, so un-Shockers Nation-like.

As one of our parents so aptly pointed out… Perhaps they, my erstwhile hearty and ferocious Shockers, have become accustomed to the unique experience and take it for granted (this includes parents). Now, they must drink from another cup and make that their comparison.

Will Natural Selection always prevail?

    Your blog reminded me of Psalm 119:96. I am proud of you that you stimulate thought, yet more importantly, are a help and hope to many by your mentorship, friendship, and leadership example.

    Thanks George. And, it’s great to hear from you.

    In cases like this perhaps we have an opportunity to ask not only what Thomas Jefferson might do, but also what Jesus might do.

    That makes a terrific cross reference for a focus on doing what is right, and less so, what we think we want.

    With my Shockers I’ve tried to develop building blocks for the future. I’m deeply proud of them all.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
