I Am Secretly Covered With Envy…

They say that envy is one of the most common emotions. There is even a commandment about it. I never thought of myself as having envy, but in reality I have probably lived with it most of my life, and sometimes it even seems to drive my life. Except for my electronic gadgets, I am not much of a “things” person, so I don’t envy … Continue reading I Am Secretly Covered With Envy…

Oh, Poor Misunderstood Me…

I recently read a post over at TheMedium.com where the author stated nine reasons why Neurotypicals (NT) don’t like people with Autism. I don’t really agree with her basic premise that most NTs just don’t like us. Yes, I do come across some of those types, but for the most part, NTs just don’t care to know much about us. They have enough troubles of … Continue reading Oh, Poor Misunderstood Me…

Some of my Special Projects have run their … Continue reading Every Picture Has A Story (EPS)#1 – An Introduction

Can Dreams Become Reality?

I am a lifelong dreamer. I seem to constantly be thinking about how my world could be better if only… But, if you spend too much time dreaming, can that eventually become your reality? That is what this post is all about. Nothing too ambitions huh? By not going down a road, it will always remain a road ahead. A personal example of that is … Continue reading Can Dreams Become Reality?

There Is Innocence In Youth…

There is innocence in youth, unclouded by history, politics, and conflict. And maybe more so, the emotional baggage we carry through life strips us of our innocence? Even with purposefully trying to avoid it, the politics of these current times is weighing on me. I can see so many of the gains my generation made being stripped away, even before I am gone. We should … Continue reading There Is Innocence In Youth…

Good Patches Come And Go…

Good patches come and go, but in the end it is all about laying in the sun. Of course, the quote above came from an avid sunbather, but it does have a more profound meaning. Presently, I am suffering from some not-so-good times. Too many memories flooding my consciousness. Too many realities that are not so pleasant. I barely knew him, but I miss my … Continue reading Good Patches Come And Go…

Without Death, Living Would Be Unbearable.

Now that my “Love of my Life” series is completed, I want to end this week’s posts on a related topic. Almost everyone knows the old saying Everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to die to get here I read that to say that we are afraid we won’t stack up to the qualifications to pass the pearly gates. Or maybe, … Continue reading Without Death, Living Would Be Unbearable.

Remembering The Love Of My Life – Alone Together…

Today is the first anniversary of my wife’s death. I still think of her everyday, but maybe a little less often now. Just before we got married, she asked me if we were making the right decision? I told her “only time would tell”. Well, we lasted for 34 years, I guess I can say it was a good decision. When I went deaf two … Continue reading Remembering The Love Of My Life – Alone Together…

What’s So Great About The Real World?

They say that those of us with Aspie traits don’t live in the real world. There is some truth to that, at least as far as I am concerned. My view of the world is probably somewhat different from yours. But I have a basic question about all of this. What’s So Great About The Real World? In my senior years, I am weaning myself … Continue reading What’s So Great About The Real World?

Oh, Those Dreaded Routines…

One of the things that has almost been a constant here at RJsCorner for the last few years is my statement that I embrace change and loathe routines. My recent On-The-Road journey across the South and Southwest U.S. has proven that to be for the most part inaccurate. I still like to experience change once in a while, but I have come to recognize that … Continue reading Oh, Those Dreaded Routines…

A Special Thank You…

Through the comments I have received on this blog recently, I have come to realize that RJsCorner is becoming a “virtual village” of people from around the world. I currently have regular readers and frequent commentors from London, Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, Ireland, Canada, and numerous other countries. Comments from those outside the U.S., add a unique perspective to my words and I just … Continue reading A Special Thank You…

On-The-Road Epilogue #2 – Stages of the Pandemic & The Death Knell of Local Eateries

While on my 3+ weeks on the road, I actually lost almost 4 lbs. That kinda surprised me but in looking back I realized the source of the loss was the absence of local eateries in many of the areas I visited. The Midwest, or at least the part I come from has pretty much unmasked now and things are starting to return to normal, … Continue reading On-The-Road Epilogue #2 – Stages of the Pandemic & The Death Knell of Local Eateries

Mechanical Trees…

I haven’t written a technical post here on RJsCorner for some time now. It seems my recent thoughts tend to be more emotional and personal. But, I am still an IT (Information Technology) guy who loved mechanical stuff. As I have mentioned several times before, I got great joy in spending eight years in my barn filling my micro-RV with among other things, technical stuff. … Continue reading Mechanical Trees…
