What Kind Of…

March 18, 2017

As an old Blues line goes,”If wasn’t bad luck, I wouldn’t have no luck at all”. Another more optimistic one says.” The harder I work, the luckier I get”.  The wisest one said,” Time and chance happen to all men”.

Somehow in my own short number of years I’ve found that all three conditions seem to true, fortunately not all at the same time, definitely validating, “There is a time and a season for everything under the sun”.

Where Does It End

March 17, 2017

When I was a kid I went to the observation deck of the Empire State Building. That before I took a flight in an airplane. My perspective of what a huge height was changed then.  Never have been in a spaceship or to the grand canyon, but my mind has grown enough to comprehend the vastness, though I’m sure being there might change my mind.

My first computer had one meg of RAM in it. At the time that seemed huge with two floppy drives. A few years later, my first hard drive 420 Megs. I thought that was an ocean, that couldn’t be filled.

The Universe is massive, more so than ever imagined, constantly growing, yet made of as we discover, increasingly smaller and smaller particles. A candle of infinity burning in both directions, yet never dripping wax or diminishing in size.

The God particle unbelievably small, and still He holds it all in His hand.

It Is Not My Fault

March 16, 2017

They can’t help it, poor little creatures. That works fine as an excuse for animals and babies for poor behavior. That is just their nature. Should the babies make it to some level of maturity, it is hoped that the old selfish nature has diminished and a less self-centered one has emerged.

Still, within humanity the struggle to be freed from the limitations of selfishness to selflessness is a tremendous internal fight, the only route to selflessness is to come to the conclusion, the self must die. Not the most popular of ideas to have appeared.

If only my nature would change, then my problem would be resolved.As a new nature would give  new instincts

As Usual, It Depends On Usage

February 25, 2017

I like it when Nancy calls me that, generally displeased if my boss says the same thing. For those who have earned the right to use it as a term of endearment, sure go ahead. I might even reciprocate. It would be unwise of me to use it in any other usage, save to describe a litteral infant. A child under one year of age. Baby that’s you!

Sometimes it is seen

February 5, 2017

 

Do I really look around enough to see and recognize how much there is to enjoy and be grateful for in life? Blue Train by John Coltrane in the background,  even when the pain killers have worn away and that peculiar throbbing has returned, but fails to hit the same groove as the bass player. Regardless of the lack of  rhyme or reason. Still somewhere lurking in the shadows He is still with me through it all.

Clutches and Control

January 29, 2017

Automatic  or manual? Wanting to be in control, or let someone or something make the decisions for you? Like to watch it wind out and even red line!

It takes two to get it done.

Capable  and willing is the winning combo. One without the other is usually leads to a sad result.

Tiny

October 25, 2016

Could be Tim, or bubbles. Small but not necessarily insignificant, often lost then sorely missed. Like a gentle peck or the promised sliver from one’s dinner date desert. Definitely not how one should be hugged. Unfortunately like most raises and self absorbed doling out of praises to others. Tiny.

Volunteer

Could be Tennessee, tomatoes, or one’s time. Tomatoes are great, a surprise, tasty and sweet. Tennessee is twangy. My time precious but the most generous of all.

 Millions

October 22, 2016

Millions, what comes to mind? Dollars, though they aren’t worth what they used to be. Years? Still quite a long time, and unlikely I’ll live that long in this life.
