Favorites Sunday – Looking Back Five Years.

I am refining my Favorites Sunday selection a little here. I have decided that I will go back 5 years to the week to see what I was talking about and if anything has changed. Update It was a tough road, but I think I am finally beginning to keep my life challenging, at least with respect to my current conditions. I have discovered that life can really be joyful regardless of what surrounds you if you work hard enough at it. Five years ago I would never have thought that the tone of the country would have turned so … Continue reading Favorites Sunday – Looking Back Five Years.

Seeking a Joyous Journey -Rules

I am one of the many people who regularly watch NCIS on TV. There are so many NCIS’s now that I guess I need to expand that sentence. I’m talking about the one with Leroy Jethro Gibbs. One of the things I like about him is his rules. I don’t know how many rules he has, but his team seems to know them all. When I was trying to find a format for this new project of RJsCorner I thought of Jethro and his rules, so I thought I would start my set of rules on having a joyous life … Continue reading Seeking a Joyous Journey -Rules

My Essence Statement – Who I Am

In a recent post, I declared myself as living a joyous life of a nuanced skeptic. This post will flesh out that description as to make you even more confused. 🙂  Now in my old age, I am convinced that it takes almost a lifetime to determine just what your personal essence is.  We can all describe ourselves at various points in our lives but to find the essence of you is much more difficult. Maybe the difficult part is to do it in just a few words. I have been playing with the words above for several weeks now. … Continue reading My Essence Statement – Who I Am

Times Square Repenter..

When we were in NYC the last time we rented a hotel room very near Time Square. It was pretty expensive but since this was probably our last time there we deemed it worth the costs.  For those who don’t know it Saturday night in Times Square is all about partying. Thousands turn out to celebrate one thing or another. And then there are always a few to have a different agenda for that night.  That is the topic of the picture below. I have seen this picture hundreds of time since it was taken in 2014 and almost every … Continue reading Times Square Repenter..
