Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

May the Past Equal the Future (Maybe)


Believe me when I say that we have a difficult time ahead of us.
But if we are to be prepared for it, we must first shed our fear of it.
I stand before you now, truthfully, unafraid.
Because I believe something you do not?
I stand here because I remember.
I remember that I am here not because the path that lies before me, but because of the path that lies behind me.

As we initiate the New Year, ask yourself if you have core beliefs.  Its is easy to lose sight of those amidst the clatter of daily events. Here is a short list to contemplate:

  1. Americans are a people with a great past.
  2. The challenges ahead are no greater than those behind us. In fact, we need only value what Thomas Jefferson envisioned.
  3. The American people always win when we pull and work together. 
  4. We are what we envision ourselves to be.

This made me think of a post I wrote earlier this year – “I Talk To interesting People” (It’s true.  I do – all day long).  We have such hope.

Happy New Year.  Are you with me?

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.
