  Penultimate Pondering. . .  As May draws closer to its end, I have collected many thoughts over the month. Actually, it's quite the accumulation.  Like memories, some are recalled more clearly than others.  Purposefulness of being and staying aware remain part of this ongoing process.  Traversi...
  FoolhardinessAs We Finish The Fourth Month. . .  Foolishness and all kinds of stuff related to the subject may be closely aligned with April.  And not only on the first but whenever the month is the topic.   Maybe it’s an easy target.   Perhaps, there is a bigger reason. Now that we have reache...
  Faking Artificial IntelligenceRandomness Really Reigns. . .  The recent rain is taking a bit of a respite in my SoCal neighborhood so my mind wanders. It will likely wind its way to wondering. Does weather impact what's storming in my mind? And what about questions related to whether? Beyond co...
 Anything, AnywhereAnd All At Once. . .   This post title is not-so-loosely inspired by the name of the 2022 movie Everything Everywhere All At Once.  But this has nothing to do with that or any film.  Although it won much acclaim and received many awards, I didn’t see it.   While the preview did...
 To Live Poetically. . .   While I attempt to limit time spent on Facebook, there are certain must-visits on the site where I do stop.  While time management can be challenging, the control I have has proven an achievable solution when practiced. I admit the daily birthday reminders come in handy...
 Some Backup Solutions of Sorts. . .   I have said it before and it's likely I will repeat it: A life in real estate can provide a lot of stories. Some to share. Other gathered tales may be deeply hidden in the memory bank. Perhaps, they are being stored for safe keeping. Sometimes things are rev...
Almost April And AnotherAR Anniversary Approaches. . .     The end of the month approaches.  Thirteen years ago tomorrow, March 30, I joined ActiveRain.  Many AR milestone moments much more significant than this have passed since 2010 without much or any notice from me. John Lennon is attributed ...
Evaluating the Educational ExperienceAs A New Season Arrives. . .  I have admitted to rabbit hole expeditions on more than one occasion.  There can be many twists and turns.  Some are consequential although many may seem meaningless. Life teaches me some sort of lesson each day.  I have yet to fi...
Was It Memorable?And Why. . .   Meetings and moments of all sorts can be scheduled.   They also happen spontaneously without much or any planning.  I wonder: What makes them or anything memorable?   Even if specialness is promised, there isn’t a guarantee.  The wondering continues.   The word and...
Not Knots LandingAnd No Drama of The Serial Or Cereal Variety. . . I know I am older than some on this platform.  A look into the bathroom mirror and around real life also reminds me of this.  Although the details are fuzzy, I recall the television show, Knots Landing. For the uninitiated or thos...
