OBVIOUSLY, I’M TAKING A BREAK FROM ‘BLOGGING’

This site has been active for over ten years — a few entries from among the older site contents since removed after insights changed but most of the site contents remain as-is despite changes in this writer’s perspectives — but as of this time, I need to continue the break I’ve taken from updating since […]

“GO CONFIDENTLY IN THE DIRECTION OF YOUR FUTURE – GOD IS THERE.”

Having a friend who is in a Catholic religious order proves rewarding in more ways than one but it’s especially great to receive newsletters from such a friend, which I do. The latest newsy-email I received inspired me and quite dramatically; I feel a need both personally and publicly — privately and professionally, private issues […]

“THE LONELY PATH FROM HOSPITAL TO HOME” – AND HOW TO IMPROVE THIS

UPDATE 02/07/13: this post was reserved, unpublished, in my Drafts file last November 2012 but it’s worthy reading and so it’s being published at this time, February 2013. At some point in every one of our lives, we are in need of concentrated medical care which usually and often means, we’re in contact with a […]

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2012

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder — and Christmas merriment is in the heart of the merry. The times are challenging for many of us yet this day assures us that the tough stuff is passing and there’s much more good “up there” with faith. Lights on a tree are a good illustration […]

SCRIPT FOR “LIFE OF PI” IS WONDERFUL; IMPRESSIVE IS THE TESTIMONY BY THE SCREENWRITER ABOUT IT

“I’m not the kind of person who really likes to be looked at all the time. I was not naturally an actor…I am naturally a hermit who sits in his room and types all day,” he said. I understand that and share in that perspective: such are the words from writer David Magee who adapted […]

HEROES, THE QUIET ONES

From website, “A.Word.A.Day,” is this “THOUGHT FOR THE DAY“: In our world of big names, curiously, our true heroes tend to be anonymous. In this life of illusion and quasi-illusion, the person of solid virtues who can be admired for something more substantial than his well-knownness often proves to be the unsung hero: the teacher, […]

VETERANS DAY 2012

Our national and individual appreciation, value of and gratitude to our veterans should never be refused them: our veterans have proven their willingness to protect our nation and to do so in situations and conditions that many of them never disclose out of consideration for the rest of us. We should also never exclude the […]

NEVER FORGET: 9/11 – “OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD”

I’m a person who is calm and focused in an emergency and only cries afterward. It’s difficult for me in these years after the facts of 9/11 to watch the re-enactments from the tragedies because I feel compelled during them to level orders at people — potential victims — to get-moving, get-out, pull it together […]

ENOUGH WITH THE REST THING

Well, it’s done. Rest thing is over. It ended about a week ago but then hardware issues arrived. Otherwise, I’d have made this huge announcement a week ago but enough with that tangent, too. Hardware and rest both resolved, I’m rested and the hardware is new. So enough with the evasions to commenting about the […]

“TEST OF FIRE: ELECTION 2012”

From this video: Will you vote the values that will stand the test of fire? Some things are more important than high gas prices or a faltering economy. They are life, marriage and freedom. This November, Catholics must stand up and protect their sacred rights and duties. From Gateway Pundit, who I thank greatly for […]
