Ring A Ding Ding

If you could read my mind you might wonder why it is so damn empty inside and I'd tell you it is because you are in the anteroom and it is intentionally stark and sterile because only a few are allowed entrance into the backroom. Really, I don't have a need for validation from most or even some. It is just not how things work for me now,  maybe once upon a time things were different but those days are in the past. And now here today in the present I straddle two worlds and work towards moving to just one. That is because the short term plan requires both but the long term one, well that requires just one. One place, one moment in time, one life. Sounds kind of goofy, but it makes sense to me and that is really all that is necessary. Just setting the table for the next stage, just preparing a foundation so that one day I can retire and live the 87nd version of my life. “Babe, baby, baby, I wanna leave you I ain’t jokin’ woman – I’ve got to ramble Oh, yeah, baby, baby,

Not A Good Choice

Wednesday night at the break fast I walked over to the buffet to grab some of the traditional bagels, lox and cream cheese and was disappointed to discover that whomever had brought the bagels had brought the most awful selection I have seen in a long time. And that is saying something, when you have fasted all day long and are quite hungry you are normally prepared to eat almost anything except these bagels. They were simply awful and I was disappointed but there was a big selection so I moved onto other things and was grateful that I had choices. Not everyone does.

You're Responsible

One of my cousins posted this article on Facebook today. I was tempted to respond but I didn't because any time I reply to her political posts I end up going at it with some of her friends and I feel badly when I make them scream. And believe me, I make them scream. That is because I tear things apart piece by piece and start asking for fact over opinion and substance over blather. But it is the New Year and I don't want to start it off by fighting so I am going to share a couple of thoughts here. Let's start with the headline and why it irritates me: Republicans Enraged As Obama On Track To Completely Eliminate Deficit By 2017/b> I am not a fan of finger pointing and name calling. If we are on the same side and all supposed to be working towards the common good how does this kind of mud slinging help? Does anyone believe that there is uniformity among all party members in either the Democrat or Republican party? I certainly don't and I don't

Experiences

It looks like I have a shot at participating in an experience that I have always wanted to do but never tried because I never had enough spare cash to make it happen. I am really excited about the opportunity and hope it comes through because if it does I'll be able to cross something off of the list of things that I want to do in my life, Makes me think I need to spend some time mulling over what the top 100 are so that I can do more than just dream about it.

Kim Davis and Marriage

Every time I read something that is supposed to support Kim Davis and her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples I shake my head. That is because 100% of these messages have been based upon things that have no relevance and no place in the discussion. Many of them clearly slept through their civics courses in school and demonstrate they have no understanding about laws, the Constitution and how it all works. I also find it difficult to stomach their assertions that Christians are being persecuted in the US. It is factually incorrect and almost always based upon a misunderstanding of how things work. The worst part of all of this is how freaking dumb some of these calls for support are. Not dumb because I disagree but lacking substance, fact and riddled with grammar/spelling errors.
