I can’t even imagine why, but yesterday early morning I woke up with Willie Nelson’s song “Of All The Girls I’ve Loved Before” stuck in my thoughts. I would wake up a dozen times between 3am and 7am and the song was still there. But I had managed to change the words to show my love for my wife of 35 years. I worked on … Continue reading Yvonne’s Song
For all those Republicans who are trying to pull away from Trump, I encourage you to be brave enough to do just that. Yes, I know he has a number of intelligence-challenged citizens that will vote for him because he reflects their mentality, but you must be brave enough to put them back into the fringes. Trump has been on the political scene now for … Continue reading It’s Time For A New Political Party… Probably Two.
All my life, I have always been envious of people who could take up a brush or pencil and create things from their minds. I tried that some in my youth, but never really got to a level that didn’t embarrass me. I tried it recently with the same result. Drawing and painting is just something that isn’t in my talent base. But, that got … Continue reading I’m An Artist, I Paint With Words
I am getting to the point on RJsCorner that I post about anything I want to. Today I feel like talking about money and it’s effects on life. What better place to learn about that than quotes from those wiser than us? Let’s start off with a well-known poet who live lived alone in a shack at Walden Pond for two years. One of the … Continue reading All About Money… From Those Wiser than Us
I know polling has taken a hit lately because of all the antagonizers in the politics have learned to game it to arouse the base. But, I kinda think the ones I see in my weekly magazine entitled The Week are interesting and worthy of posts once in a while. If nothing else, they make me think about how fractured we are. The next step … Continue reading How About Those Polls
Looking back on my life, I can’t believe all the things I took naively for granted. I used to think that the foundation of the U.S. was our constitution. It spelled out what was important to us, but the problem with that is that too many of us think that, like the Bible, it should be set in concrete and never changed. Of course, I … Continue reading I Can’t Believe How Wise I Am…Now
Part of my 2023 project is to shrink my world, or at least shrink the degree of my awareness of it. One of my Aspie traits is that I am addicted to my routines. Much of my life is simply ruled by them. I get up in the morning and after the usual bathroom stuff, I head for my computer to browse the daily news. … Continue reading My World Is Shrinking… Thank Heavens
I just finished watching a streaming episode of Mad About You, when Yoko Ono asked Paul to film the wind. Paul was stumped. How do you film the wind when it is invisible? He basically never figured it out. But, I could think about several different possibilities. So, why not write a post about the wind and how important it is in the development of … Continue reading About The Wind…
Steve Jobs was one of the founders of Apple Inc. He died at a relatively early age of 56 due to pancreatic cancer in 2011. Steve was certainly one of the pioneers of 21st century technology. I love the quote from him that people don’t know what they want until you give it to them. I have been intimately enmeshed in Apple products from the … Continue reading Steve Jobs – Your Time Is Limited…
I see where the leadership of Iran, in response to all the protests by the young people, have announced they are abolishing the “Morality Police”. Those are the forces who roam the streets looking to punish those who are not living up to the Islamic rules, particularly the dress laws. I’m not sure which of the dress codes that Iran enforces, but I’m certain that … Continue reading Mandated Morality & Insurrections
2022 was a very challenging year for me, even in my RetCom (retirement community). I tried many ways to live with so many others who were suddenly around me. I had some disappointing failures, but also a few successes. As a result, I have high expectations for this new year. 2023 will be about building on those few successes and not letting DQ take hold … Continue reading About 2023 & Getting Out Of The DQ Mode
I spent the first day of this new year trying to figure out how I will live in the next 364 days. I also spent New Year’s Eve looking at what I accomplished in 2022. Before I go any further, I must admit that the whole decade before 2022, I was mostly in the caregiver hermit mode. My wife’s health continued to decline year after … Continue reading Looking Back So I Can Look Forward
Let’s start off this new year at RJsCorner by looking at our view of the future. Sadly, there are those who seem to be frightened by almost everything these days. I kinda think that mentality make up a big majority of the MAGA folks. Everything is changing so fast as to make their heads spin. The only way they can see to relieve that overwhelming … Continue reading How Do You See The Future?
