Obviously you don’t always get what you think you see, or fail to understand.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

injustice?

January10

Injustice is one of those odd words that does not look like what it is.

Why not “outjustice”. Possibly “unjustice”, because unjust is working, for the most part.

In this case, there is no justice.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Intellectual Pursuits?

July29

What is formed first?

Thoughts, or the words to describe them?

If you read this Blog (apparently A LOT of you do), you know that I have been contemplating and investigating my fascination with combinations of words, and how they can affect thoughts, and invoke change.

But then, I contemplate and investigate a great many things.  And, only but so many of you can suffer me this.

So…  The plasticity (what?) of the English language, particularly its academic jargon never ceases to make, for some, good entertainment.  Recently, a friend (okay…  It was Sidney again) and I had occasion to speculate about possible ways of expressing different intellectual pursuits through the standard ways of nominating fields of study.  So, here are some of the things we came up with:

Theography: the study of where God is.
Theophotography: taking pictures of God (i.e. Mega-Iconography).
Theocartography: the art of making maps that lead to God.
Philography: the love of words.
Ecclesiography: the search for where the church is /1

It helps, of course, if you are drinking when you attempt such important endeavors.

My personal favorite is theography. I think if I worked hard enough I could actually make that into an actual term in theological discourse regarding the location of Christ’s body or something.

…Anyways, perhaps this is all just further proof that theology is, in fact, nothing more than a role-playing game (debate me. I dare you).

But hell, at least its fun. /2

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Not Just Words…

October19

We all grew up with certain catch phrases, terms or quotes making a lasting impression in our lives.

Here are some examples of things that people that have played pivotal roles in my own life have said and, as a direct result, changed me, and the course of my life, in a meaningful way…

1. “You could drop Brian into a Nebraska corn field and two weeks later he would own the farm.”
Who said it: Clifford Cork, Sr. My Grandfather.

2. “It’s what you don’t see that will always kill you.”
Who said it: Gunnery Sergeant Tilson, United States Army Rangers

3. “As I get older my Dad gets smarter.”
Who said it: Lots of dudes.

4. “Follow your dreams and be true to your friends.”
Who said it: David Sugarman, one of my best mentors.

5. “Be part of the solution, not the problem.”
Who said it: Chuck Schmidt, Battalion Chief with Lousiville Volunteer Fire Department.

6. “Happy wife, Happy Life.”
Who said it: Clifford Cork, Sr. and Sonny Newton at Chick-fil-A

7. “Just be a Love Kat.”
Who said it: Tim Sanders

8. “If you are going to give someone a ‘piece of your mind’, make sure it goes with a chunk of your heart.”
Who said it: Brian Patrick Cork

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.
