Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

brian cork on Gravity

October10

nope… this post has almost nothing to dow with Sir Isaac Newton.

it has almost everything to do with two intrepid actors, George Clooney and Sandra Bullock. this might be lost on many viewers but the entire movie gets pulled-off with essentially just these two actors. that’s pretty dang cool and unusual. the whole movie is.

George has, what might be the role of a life-time. he gets to be urbane and witty as usual, but he also gets to be heroic and tragic. Sandra brilliantly demonstrates to young ladies around the globe (literally) that resourcefulness, courage, and grit can take you places.

so, with that said (and, despite my high regard for the film), I’ll share with you a goofy review of the movies pulled from The Onion. (too many people forget about The Onion. admit it.  you had.) just go watch the damn movie yourself. it’s worth each and every minute.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

dream on an economy of physics and faith

May19

Why things will change, you ask?

Apparently, at some point in 1980, Herbert Stein had stated that:

“If something cannot go on forever, it will stop”.

I can’t argue against that. And, I’ve both pondered it, and tried. However, I’m not convinced. This proposition, arising first in a discussion of the balance-of-payments deficit, is a response to those who think that if something cannot go on forever, steps must be taken to stop it – even to stop it at once.

But, what if, economics aside, gravity is some how involved, and other elements of physics? Faith, of one kind or another, must certainly be a factor.

Meanwhile, physics aside, I think being referred to as a “Chief Economist” would be cool.

Oh… And, by the way… I’m listening to: Dream On – Glee Cast Version) – and, a worthwhile comparison to Aerosmith’s venerable rendition.

“You have to lose to know how to win… Sing with me. Just for the day. Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away.

For what it’s worth, I’m also reading: The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde on my iPad. It’s an absolute and iconic piece of work.

We, after all, have our scandals. But, we must have faith in ourselves, and one another that we can defy gravity, on no economy of scale, and pull through.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

many things Are not Pointless

January13

So…

It’s been nip-and-tuck on this Blog going on two days now over my last post: there might be demons and there are ALWAYS questions.

It’s particularly ferocious doings in the comments sections with my Christian brothers Drew, George and John game-fully wading in, hearts fully exposed (I am not, by definition, a Christian, but they are still my brothers).

However, under his own steam, the inestimable Aaron Masih (a warrior, in any light) has set forth his views on his Blog: A Life of Passion. The post is called: The Struggle Worth Having.

I’ll suggest you consider reading it, within it’s entirety.

Do it!

Just to wet your appetite – following was my own comment, under that worthy effort:

“I think I’m honored.

God issued me discernment. And, with it a keen desire to live my life in a way that glorifies everything that I can recognize around me. I used to refer to this as living my life like Christ. But, as time went by I felt like that was similar to wearing a medal I had not earned. There is, not so simply, a bar, some how set.

So, living by that code, while remaining uncertain about, how and where, I might end-up sometimes feels like standing on the ledge preparing to tower jump.

But, some how I think I’m going to make it – because it wasn’t me that created wind that can be used to offset gravity.”

And, I have such terrific friends, “good men in a storm”, to be sure, standing by to break my fall.

There is virtu, here. And, fortuna! Yes, Dr. Pappas, my worlds converge. My hunger naught but builds to not only learn, but to truly, I say, understand.

Readers of this Blog, rally to me – give me that word! …if it isn’t understanding.

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.
