I promised I would not get on the bandwagon of 24/7 COVID, but this one I thought you might be interested in. It is from a March 28 article in the New York Times. It shows the dramatic effect of social distancing in the last few days. New York data is quite impressive. Enough said. Continue reading An Interesting View of COVID19
For this Artsy Saturday I give you a Wisconsin Lighthouse taken a few years ago. I continue of my path to becoming proficient at Abstract Realism. I now have several apps and new tools to make it happen. In these days when everything is COVID-19, it’s nice to be able to escape the 24/7 onslaught once in a while isn’t it? … Continue reading A Wisconsin Lighthouse
I know the title of this post is not a real word at least to my New Oxford Dictionary but I don’t mind stretching the English language a bit once in a while. This post is about how journaling became such an important part of my life.
This post is a little history lesson for you about some of our founding fathers and the philosophical stands they took. The particular focus of this post is about what they thought about those who represent us in our governing ourselves.
For this Abstract Realism Saturday I give you one of my favorite pictures of the main dwelling attic at Pleasant Hill Shaker Village near Lexington KY. Everything is about symmetry in Shaker life. Continue reading Shaker Abstract…
These are certainly stressful times. Everything seems to be against us, well maybe not for the kids who can now play their video games 24/7 😆. Pandemics aren’t fun. This post about that is from an old person’s point of view…
I didn’t know if God was going to give me another summer but I thank him for apparently doing so. 😄 Spring and Summer are my busy times of the year. I spend most of the months between December and March in the hibernation mode, so I have plenty of time on my hands to blog to my heart’s content. The warm weather season’s time … Continue reading Starting My Summer Schedule
It looks like after the Super Tuesday Blow-outs it is now a two old-person choice. Will the next president be a 75 year-old, or a 78 year-old, or a 79 year-old. The possibilities are what this post is all about.
Being a published author is kind of like being a sports superstar. Everyone wants to be one but only a very very small portion of us actually make much money from either profession. That is what this post is about.
I have been on my seemingly endless journey to understand the mind of the MAGA cult and I have come to the conclusion that they are by no means a homogeneous group. I have decided that it is useless to try to win them over with compassion, logic, or any other means. That is what this post is about.
Storytelling is something that is as old as man. Before written languages were developed and taught to the masses storytelling was the only way to pass down history. Why I seem to be obsessed with trying out storytelling is a mystery to me. That is what this post is all about.
It’s hard to imagine that the above was once cutting-edge technology. Looking back from a hundred years from now, I wonder what people will think the equivalent is today? Continue reading The Industrial Revolution
I think it is time to bring our educational institutions into the 21st century. It seems that not a lot has changed in that area since my high school years back in the 1960s, except that none of us had backpacks then, and we spent more time in the classroom. This post is about the first thing that needs to change in this area.
I’m going to put on my fiscal conservative hat here and try to convince you that class-war is a losing proposition. That in my mind means Bernie Sanders has it fundamentally wrong. That is what this post is all about.
As I remember it many in the religious community at that time in 1970 thought Jesus Christ Superstar was sacrilegious. But it might just be the primary reason I returned to religion. That is what this post is all about.
I love the title of this post. It came from my friends at Reimagining The Future. What do we do when automation has finally eliminate the need for humans to do mundane mind boring tasks? That’s what this post is all about.
Not all people who once proudly claimed to be Evangelicals are now MAGA cult members. It was refreshing to see that some have escaped and now label themselves Exvangelicals. I guess I could also wear that label as I was once an Evangelical myself. That is what this post is all about.
