60 Years In The Making…

Yesterday, I talked about the John Steinbeck book Travels with Charlie – In Search Of America and how it has affected me for all my travel life. I have always dreamed of making a similar trip and that is about to become reality. The trip itself will start on May 2, but I will spend much of April giving you stories about my preparation for … Continue reading 60 Years In The Making…

A New Morning In America…

Now that the current Oval Office occupant has been defeated, it’s time to look once again to set a course to a bright future for our country. I hope that we the voters have learned a lesson from the dark days of the previous four years. But even more so, I hope that eventually we can once again come together in some semblance of bipartisanship. … Continue reading A New Morning In America…

I’ve Always Been A Writer… Except When I Wasn’t

Let’s get away from politics for at least today. I have always been a dreamer making up stories about where I would be in my life xx years in the future. Those early dreams spanned from being a Van Gogh suicide all the way to being famous like John Steinbeck or Jack London (Will Rogers would be added a little later). My college years pretty … Continue reading I’ve Always Been A Writer… Except When I Wasn’t

A Lot Of Noise Goin On…

I don’t know why I seem to be so fixated on sounds lately let alone poultry stuff.  My daily and weekly posts here are RJsCorner are now named after sounds (cackle and squawk) that chickens make. I need to get to the underlying reason for this. 🙂  I lost my hearing thirty years ago, and since then my brain has forgotten what many sounds sound like.  … Continue reading A Lot Of Noise Goin On…

The Dreams Of The Future..

   Thomas Jefferson is my favorite writer of all time.  He was not a good public speaker but he sure knew how to put pen to paper. He was also a very prolific writer. His archive spans thousands of letters and treatises about a wide variety of topics.  He loved studying history as his library showed but more so he loved dreaming of the future. … Continue reading The Dreams Of The Future..
