 Seeing Strength. . . As we know stuff of all kinds happens.  With and without a reason.  It occurs all around us.  If we are careful in our observation, we notice that it is discerned differently by each of us.  Signs of strength occur in many ways too.  Seeing signs of any kind may be difficult...
  Meanwhile, I Muse. . . It’s Monday.  And it seems like musing might “work” today.  Truth be told, it can take place any day or to move along with that alliterative theme - any moment.    As I have expressed on numerous occasions (many, maybe a multitude), I digress in my own meandering manner. ...
 A Movie About The FourthSeen On The Third And Now A Bit Later. . .  On Sunday, I saw a newly released film “The Fourth of July”.  It is an independent movie. Not big budget nor star-studded.  Although I am well-aware that few (if any) here or elsewhere will see it, it was enjoyable for me.  As I...
 Predictably Unpredictable. . .  One month has ended.  And today, another begins.   But this time, six months of 2022 are behind us with six more on the way.   We have previously been "here" - but this time is different. Each moment is unique in some ways. And like others from the past as well.  ...
 Observations, Things Overlooked And Other Occurrences. . .  I am a longtime observer.  Obviously, that has played a part in the time I have spent on ActiveRain over the years.  Although, not as much as before, I continue to check posts on a regular basis.  Of those I follow as well as members ne...
 The Revolving Door of Random Thinking I don’t know how it “works” for you.  Heck, I am unsure how it is processed each time it happens in my own brain but that’s a thought for another time.   It’s Friday.  And like any day of the week (I imagine) it’s good to find the fine print.   Maybe even a ...
 Pondering A PotionFor A Particular Kind Of Notion   The other day, I found myself out and about walking a bit later than usual.  It was early afternoon.  More people and activity than I might typically observe earlier in the day.  My midday trip was interrupted by a woman who approached me with ...
 May I Have The Definition?    There is certainly a lot going on in our world these days but a glimpse of an announcement that the 2022 Scripps National Spelling Bee was going to be broadcast yesterday caught my attention.  In recent years I remember it had been televised  on ESPN but this year t...
 Whether It’s Wiring or Wiles. . .    On Saturday, I finished the most recent book by Frank Bruni, The Beauty of Dusk.  Although I have read numerous books authored by Mr. Bruni along with countless opinion articles plus viewed many interviews with him, this is not a review. I recommend it of cou...
So I Wonder What Happens On The Fourth. . .    Fool me once.   Shame on you.  Fool me twice.  Shame on me.   We likely have heard the above saying and perhaps recall a quote attributed to author Stephen King who reportedly added “Fool me three times, shame on both of us”.  But then I wonder, what...
