I confess to being less interested in your religious pageantry than I am in seeing you be the LOVE you so proclaim to the world. — the broken egg

 

If that makes me a sinner man, then I’ll wear the label proudly

Oh bother

People always think of a young person when such a subject comes up, but our society has no use for us seniors.

One of the saddest things about internet discussion is how it brings out hostile discourse. Maybe I shouldn’t say it brings out because internet discussion doesn’t do anything. Only the participants can actually bring something to it. I think of all the time wasted in personal attacks, anger and unnecessary fighting and wonder how much better we could make this world if each individual made a firm choice not to bring such things to the discussions. At best, someone ends up making a conscious decision not to continue in such discussions, walking away from them. Communication is then lost along with what benefits come from it.

2017 and so many of us on edge with our heals dug in and our fences securely in place around our respected positions menacingly shaking our fists and proclaiming “I will not be moved” – which is to say I will not consider anything different than my views nor will I change despite whatever is presented to me that could alter my process.

Walk away from it? Stay out of such discussions? Never participate? Sure. These are all solutions that we come to, but always at the expense of communication that teaches, provides learning and fosters growth. I look around at this mess and mutter “no wonder.”

It seems everybody claims that the drivers in their area are the worst in the country. It’s almost a status merit or something. Does anyone stake a claim to the best or just okay drivers in the country?

“Oh yeah” as we point out the traffic to our best friends from back home, “we’ve got the most mediocre drivers in the country. It can be so okay. I haven’t had a case of road rage in years. Boring!”
