 The FactsOf Life. . .My January 2022 AR Challenge Entry It’s nice to see this challenge get off to a strong start as I have already read some creative entries.  The arrival of another new year seems to have sparked much enthusiasm from our membership.   When I read the announcement post by Gary ...
 The First Second. . .     It’s January 2, 2022 and while it’s the second on the calendar, it’s also the first Sunday of month number one of the new year.  Seconds matter as well as first of all sorts.    We mark time.  Sometimes with more consequences than any actual truth.  But let’s get back t...
 The RightTo Write. . .    I have enjoyed the writings and storytelling of author David Sedaris for quite some time.  I even mentioned him in an ActiveRain challenge post earlier this year.  He has a style that is uniquely his but admits to moments of hyperbole as he seems accurately “captured” i...
The Most Important Thing. . .   The most important thing about Spaceship Earth - an instruction book didn’t come with it. R. Buckminster Fuller Ah, the lessons in learning continue.   With and without instructions. We live. We learn. Sometimes mistakes are made. Amazingly, the lessons never end. ...
 Anticipating Bonkers. . .   Finding quotes can be interesting.  At least I think so.  As I have shared in the past, searching for quotes has led me on numerous pondering paths.  Down rabbit holes, over rivers and through woods plus off in directions of all sorts.  The other day, I encountered so...

Let’s face it, we can see lots of what we might call “weirdness” in the course of our daily lives.  Maybe it's...
 Two By Two And Not Too Much I like to mix up my early morning walks with some elements that will make the path a bit different. Sometimes those minor adjustments can mean a lot.   Recently, I chose a route that included a visit to a nearby church which has a group of outdoor displays showing The...
 No Matter The OrderScares And Miracles Can Be Part Of Any Season. . . As I approach my four-year anniversary (is that the proper way to identify it?) of my stroke and heart attack, there are definitely moments where I wonder about the relevance of miracles as well as scares.   Even the actual da...
  Luxury,Licorice And Respites That May Last Longer. . . In the last week, I went to two different theaters in two different cities to see two very different movies.  Although I have been out and about over the last two years there definitely has been an interruption in my regular movie-going.   ...
  Gross But Not That Kind Of Gross. . .  There are words that may prompt a certain reaction for some people but quite a different response from others if randomly asked for a retort.    Recently, I was thinking of “gross” which might lead some to think of something unacceptable or disgusting.  Va...
