Another Placeholder

This post is another placeholder. I came across this again and it triggered a thought but there is no time to follow up now, so that is why this is here.

A reminder to read, review and revisit later on because when you read something and a ping goes off inside your head you better make a note of it.

“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.” ― Robert Frost

The words stop me in my tracks. I don’t know if I heard them, read them or if they were painted upon the blackboard of my mind but they are stunning.

He is awake and I am awake which I suppose means we are awake because I am him and he is me.

“How many things have to happen to you before something occurs to you?” ― Robert Frost

You better believe I'll follow up on this and that it won't be ignored because I learned long ago these pings are worth noticing.

Daniel And Anne- American names

Listened to some jackass go on today about how he only wanted to hear American names and thought about what a poor sheltered life he must lead.

If the only names you want to hear are American I am curious as to why and whether you know where your name came from or if the American name you think is natural and normal is what you think it is.

Because what is familiar and recognizable to you just might be a name that isn't as American as you think it is. Dumb knucklehead probably thinks biblical names are American and would be shocked if he heard the correct pronunciation.

Talk about someone you wish didn't represent you, what an embarrassment.

And in other news I wrote these posts somewhere else:

Daily Posting and Time Management

Somewhere along the way daily posting seems to have become more of a problem. Don't know if it is because I am better or worse at time management.

Hell maybe I just don't care to do it as much as I used to, hard to say. Too much going on to know for certain.

Hoping to block out some time to do some real writing on TheJackB later today.

Need to clear my head and writing does a wonderful job of that.

Where Does The Road Lead

"And once you accept that you survived the moments that you thought would stop you in your tracks and understand how to read the map upon the scars, well then you are on your way, aren’t you." She Saved My Heart
There is a thread of a much larger story that I am working on here, took this excerpt and decided to start fleshing it out.

It is all in my head, now I have to figure out where it goes and how it happens. Where does the road lead?

Well we are going to find out.
