awesomeness

September14

Do you, reader, care that things which are awesome can be referred to as, or having: “awesomeness”, even though it’s not proper grammar (at least this is apparently the case by folk that that track such things)? But, because it’s, well… awesome, it’s simply okay?

I surf (not the web necessarily… although I do that as well, much like yourself), and do all manner of, generally, dangerous things (but, mind you… I don’t text and drive – I have my kids text for me while I drive). But, things that move me are typically referred to as awesome, and/ or have awesomeness.

It’s true. As evidenced by the simple fact that it’s right here, and in writing, no less. And, also lived, thusly.

So, there you have it.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

situational awareness

September13

I can’t say whether this line-of-thinking originated with an army in general, the army, or Chief Master Sergeant Drew, in particular… However, it’s certainly apropos wherever, or however, you might be engaged.

In fact, I just may have thought of it myself:

“If it’s not working, either change the rules, or change the circumstances”.

Some call this thinking (interestingly, another word for thinking is “contemplating”, but that won’t work, here) part of situational awareness.

God gave us all varying degrees of discernment. We might as well use it. Some just better than others.

By the way… Do any of you spend time thinking about alternate words, and how they can be applied in a manner that demonstrates both the richness of our English language, and creative resourcefulness? It’s okay if you don’t. But, it’s vitally important that you understand that I do such things.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

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.
