Too Fluffy!!

Note To Myself

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am struggling with what I want RJsCorner to look like in its post-political life. I know I want to boycott things that are keeping me from having a more joyous life. I know that is primarily the current Oval Office occupant and the poisonous atmosphere he has strewn across the political landscape.

But I don’t want RJsCorner to turn too “FLUFFY”

When it does that it, at least in my mind, has lost its purpose, and probably viewership. I am just not a “feel-good” type guy. That seems too shallow for my persona. I need to be true to myself. I question everything, that is who I am and that should be the primary emphasis of posts on my corner.

My new list of Special Projects as shown in the header above is meant to add depth to my corner, but never replace my “Having My Say”, I need to keep that fact in mind as I go forward here. I must seek my joyous journey in my own way.

I must say I am struggling with the “Painting with Words”. It is more difficult than I imagined but that just makes it more challenging and therefore more joyful. Doing artsy things with my photo portfolio via “Alternate Reflections” is very self-satisfying. And of course my decades long journey into my “Search of America” keeps me on an even keel so to speak.

Just because I have boycotted the political arena for now doesn’t mean that I can’t handle the serious stuff that challenges our world.

I need to always keep that in mind going forward. Thanks for being part of my “strategy meeting”. I promise RJsCorner will not get too fluffy. There are too many of those sites around today as it is.

An Endless Stream of Anticlimax

Watching the seemingly endless stream of people pleading guilty to one thing or another and then pledging to cooperate with their accusers is very tiring. It’s kind of like a TV melodrama that ends each week with an on-the-edge-of-your-seat cliffhanger. Watching all the many players and trying to keep track of them is a daunting task. There seem to be so many that they could fill a prison themselves. They keep getting indicted but the swamp just seems to always be getting deeper! 

It seems like an endless stream of anticlimax. “OK, that is another damning thing to add to the neverending list. When will it finally end?” And maybe, more importantly, how will it end. I think the Irish oddsmakers are still giving the star of the melodrama way less than a 50% chance of escaping unscathed. When will it end? When will the first shoe drop and even more critically when will the second one follow? For anyone not lost on a deserted island, it’s an emotional roller coaster no one seems to be able to get off!

With all this drama it surely has to have a cataclysmic end.  Reporting on it is kind of like writing your own novel. Should I end it with the sudden revelation that we are going over a cliff and finally realize the gridlock and tribalism will ensue and doom will quickly follow unless we do something NOW?  Should I end it with the fact that the damage is already far too severe for any possible recovery? Or maybe the star of the novel will suddenly realize the mess he has made of almost everything and quietly goes off with his head hanging, never to be seen again? I don’t even think that Siri even has the answer to this one.

If you haven’t already figured out what this is all about then don’t even try to figure out how it ends.

What’s your idea? How will this novel end?
