I Guess Being a Human Being Makes Me a Prime Candidate for the Human Condition

I’ve been writing this blog for quite a few years. No doubt over the course of those years, I have repeated the subject matter more than once. Not to say there is a lack of fodder, just that I am unable to keep up with the hundreds of my previous posts. I guess being a human being makes me a prime candidate for the human condition.

Some of my best entries have been those grounded in the simple everyday happenings we all experience frequently.

I lean towards humor and shy away from the woes of today. One thing I cannot tolerate concerning the press is their long held mantra, “if it bleeds it leads.” This world has its problems, but that type of thinking is too archaic for all the good that thrives around us today.

I get a kick out of exploring the technological advances of our time. For instance: with the multitude of signals traveling through the airways, be it cell phone, television in its many different arrays, radio, garage door openers, and the different appliances that operate on wireless technology, including the internet. How do the transmission waves keep from becoming intertwined? And what if these signals were visible? Kind of a whole new ballgame, don’t you think?

Or just for the purpose of supposing, how did people in the 19th century stand one another in the summertime, wearing woolen clothing?

Just a few interesting tidbits to think about. My aim is to bring a smile to someone’s face. For what can be better than passing on that contagious piece of grace at the beginning of each week.

Make it a great one and may God bless!

Writing About Writing Can Cause A Lot of Writing To Be Written Unless Unwritten Writing is Written . . . or Not

Each week I do a number of things, one of which is writing a post for my blog. I make it a point to keep some portion of the post about writing. The rest of the article can be about most anything. I try to keep it interesting and usually lean toward humor. You would be fascinated at the daily goings on that seem so lackluster and still make for intriguing reading.

Look out of your window and without knowing it, you will see a plethora of topics, natural and otherwise, to spin into an article that will catch the average eye.

For instance, the seasons can bring post after post, ranging from weather, summer vegetables, the colors of fall, or winter travel in the snow and ice.

Human nature, and especially the hardware we use today to engage in social media, none more engaging than the cell phone, can be used as fodder for a blog article.

How simple things in the past such as writing with Quill pens, to typewriters, and today’s computers, progressed through the ages.

In short, most any topic can be carefully woven into an interesting story that will entertain.

Have a great week and may God bless.

So Many Things Runnin Round My Head, Don’t Know Which One to Let Out

As I sit here pondering the subject matter of this week’s blog, there are several themes I am considering. I like to make my posts entertaining, humorous, and pertinent to life in the 21st century. Some subjects broach the outer limits of these ideals, but that’s what occasionally incorporates  humor into the article.

Although I’m not fond of penning a serious blog, they are necessary from time to time. Life does not rotate around a center of fun, but with the shape of our world today and man’s inhumanity to man the necessity becomes self-evident.

I suppose this is why I choose to interject satire into what I write.   

The explosion in technology over the past thirty years can be an interesting, if not overwhelming, topic. It literally depicts a micro-evolution not unlike moving from the stone age to the bronze age. I can only wonder, with some trepidation, where we will find ourselves in the next tech revolution? A quote from Jeff Goldblum in the movie, Jurassic Park, states, “Just because we can, doesn’t mean we should.” Perhaps we ought to pay closer attention to this quote as we develop the next technological breakthrough.

It seems I have completed my blog using said blog as the subject matter. Take care and have a great week!
