What’s It All About?

RJsCorner is broken down into eleven different categories as shown below. Many subcategories such as Asperger’s and Deafness are found by clicking that tag on the right-hand side of each page.

1. Having My Say

This is the mainstay of RJsCorner. It is where I give you my humble but often blunt opinions about many topics. Some posts are what I have learned and some are just spouting off about what I read or have experienced.

The title of this category came from a book entitled “Having Our Say”. It that is on my top ten best reads. It is a funny and blunt discussion of two black ladies who lived past 100 years and had lots of challenges in their long lives. I quote them often in my posts. They inspire me to tell it like I see it.

2. Seeking Wisdom

I am in constant search for those who know more than I do on a myriad of topics. When I find them I let you know through this category.

In Search Of America

This category actually came before RJsCorner in that this blog was actually named for this topic. It is about traveling all fifty States with a camera in hand trying to document the heart of America. My On-The-Road reports from earlier trips are a strong part of this project.

My Life An Times

This is sort of my meager attempt at writing an autobiography one post at a time. It is made up of stories about my life from my earliest memories to the current times. It is about “lessons learned” as I have gone through seven decades of failures and successes

Augmented Realities

Augmented Realities is a combination of three of the things that give me joy: writing, photography, and artistic expression. It is where I take a photo from my portfolio and morph it into an artsy picture and then add a short story. What could be a better way to show you what gives me joy.

The picture here is of me in a cafe next to the Westside Market in Cleveland taken in 2018 during our trip to see Punxsutawney Phil.

God / Philosophy / Religion

This project is about my spiritual journey in life. It has changed rather significantly in my senior years. I no longer call myself religious but still consider myself to be spiritual and particularly a follower of the teachings of Jesus. This project covers the entire scope of religion and philosophy.

Asperger’s Syndrome

I have always realized that I see many things fundamentally different than others. I never knew these traits had a name until about three years ago. Since I have not been formally diagnosed, as I don’t see the point in doing that, I don’t call myself an Aspie but I say I have significant Aspie traits. This project is about my journey in life in regards to those traits, as well as a general study of Aspergers and the Autism Spectrum.

Will Rogers Says…

This project has also been around for a long time. Will Rogers is my mentor, my hero, and my idol. His writings and his humor are something I try to emulate in my own works. Most of this project are quotes from Will and how they have affected my life.
