Thought for the Day:
About Me, If You Really Want To Know
First post - wow, and I've owned my own name as a domain for a year now. Time to get started. I am a progressive liberal, bought up in the Christian tradition but leaning now toward a universalism type of belief. This blog will cover just about anything I'm thinking about at the time. It might be science, philosophy, religion, politics, health, and/or humor. I truly will take well-presented refutations into the constantly-changing shaping of my opinions. I would describe myself as being intelligent, but un-motivated to the point of self-sabotage. This public journaling of my thoughts and efforts to improve my life and to positively impact others by being a better person is my attempt to heal, and grow, and be happy. I have my own trolls, God help me, and I'm not asking so much. My sense of humor is a little wicked at times - I will surely post screen caps of "discussions" on Facebook and Twitter that disturb or amuse me. I encourage comments, but will immediately remove spam. I honestly don't know that anyone will ever read any of this. My thoughts are neither pearls before swine or bread on the waters. I just want to throw a little love out there, along with some questions. "It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance." Thomas Sowell

You'd be surprised sometimes.
Patience is a virtue. Understanding the concept of karma means that you understand concepts of physics – “For every action there is an equal an opposite reaction.” – but you also understand a bit of quantum theory – that time is an artificial construct – so that you realize that you may not experience the[…]
I had someone I had befriended, helped, encouraged, and supported betray me. Called me a hippo to boot. You know what? I ended that bullshit completely to my satisfaction. This is how I feel: Hippos can be beautiful, too. And if your inside is ugly, nothing you do makes you beautiful.
And loving Dark Shadows is my guilty secret…
I like to create posters and memes when something resonates with me. Eventually, I’ll start some kind of gallery. Bur for now, they gets posted as I makes ’em. Click to see full size.
I am in a relationship that, from the outside, seems totally unlikely and inappropriate. However, I am completely happy in it. I have made the statement that you cannot judge unless you have lived something (of course, I’m NOT the first to have said that…) and although he and I are so, so different in[…]
