People forget there are always at least two sides to every issue, sometimes many more. I’m worried that we have, or are quickly losing out ability to look and listen to those sides. Some people just say it’s this way and don’t allow for discussion. That is a very dangerous position because that immediately cast the other side as the opposition or enemy. When conversation ends war begins.

I find it difficult to find why people fall into this trap. Yes I have my opinions and beliefs. And if you ask some they would say I’m highly opinionated because I’ll offer up a thought on just about anything. And I’m willing to listen intently to your position. But I’m far less inclined to engage only those I know I can have a friendly debate with because otherwise its just too explosive now.

Too bad we can’t sit and have civil conversations anymore.

So maybe we all need to just take a chill pill. Sit and watch the sunrise tomorrow and maybe have a bloody mary to start the day off with.

And no those were not for me. But yes someone at our table.

Random Thoughts

CC in-game 7. My fingers are crossed. Talk about tension.

Really enjoyed grilling out today. I have no idea why, it was alone, nobody to laugh or exchange techniques with. But it was still just so relaxing to do and have the health to be out there. I just felt very lucky.

Maybe we need to start the peace movement now instead of after war starts.

Anniversaries are much more enjoyable if you make every other day of the year special.

Well its not rocket science, we are at a critical point in our history as a nation.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
