I started my first blog in 2007. Since I am deaf this just seems like a natural medium for me to express my thoughts about life. RJ’s Corner actually started out as six different blogs that I published over those years. It was brought together in 2011. The primary focus of this combined blog is to look at life as Will Rogers taught me. I am an avid fan of Will. He was a very prolific writer/humorist/actor/comedian of his day. His words ring as true today as they did over eighty years ago. Most of his works were written during the Great Depression of the 1920’s and 30’s. He left behind a massive legacy of his writing. Even after all these years I am still discovering new works by him.
One of the major things that initially drew me to Will was his most famous quote “I never met a man I didn’t like”. Even though Will wrote some pretty critical things about a lot of people he never treated anyone with disrespect. In today’s terms he never dissed anyone. That seems to be a rare commodity now. One that I very much want to emulate. Unfortunately I sometimes drift off into the dark side of life in some of my posts and ignore the wisdom of my hero. I try not to do that often.
Even though this blog covers a wide variety of topics I hope my personal version of Will’s wit and wisdom always shows through. I try to like everyone I have ever met.
