Most of us use words to inform and educate. Some use words to coerce and incite fear. Some try to re-define the meaning of words to advance their own particular agenda. We must pay close attention to make sure that our own worth and our own intelligence isn’t compromised by letting those skilled in the art of the deception make us doubt what we know to be true.
  • Choose your words carefully

  • Be careful what you wish for

    Christmas came and went with all the frenzy and joy that accompanies being around small children who still have that wide-eyed wonder, while adults are exhausted and so ready for the tree, lights, egg nog and other holiday accoutrements to be put away for another year. Children’s colds and stuffy noses were starting and, of course, finding their way to some of us adults.

  • Looking at changes over the decades
    Saturday, December 29, 2018 1:06 AM
    It’s really mind-boggling what can happen in a short amount of time. We see how time slips by, but also what happens while it’s slipping. The consequence of events isn’t always known or understood, but there are good reasons to pay attention.

  • May wishes come true on Christmas

    As we each deal with our own Christmas thoughts, memories and traditions, I hope Santa is listening and grants all of us our hopes and wishes. Merry Christmas to all.

  • Another year  draws to a close
    Friday, December 21, 2018 5:33 AM
    As the year is recapped every which way but Sunday, this year I’m not sure I want to be reminded of stuff. While the top 100 books, movies or television bloopers of the year might be fun, this year I don’t want to be reminded of some things.

  • Old 'Star Trek' still relevant
    Sunday, December 9, 2018 8:39 AM
    The basic mission of the starship adventure was to face the unknown and learn. Fear was part of the discovery, but it was always overcome as a result of some rational process as well as the more inspirational human values on display.

  • Hodgepodge of thoughts in my head
    Sunday, December 2, 2018 10:03 AM
    I wonder if everyone’s mind wanders into weird, unrelated subjects. I doubt I’m the only one. Our mind wanders when listening to the radio or to someone who blathers on, or just because. I’m suddenly thinking I need to stop this project and make some lists for some other projects. Uh oh, here I go procrastinating again.

  • Take a quick look at PBS reading list
    Monday, November 26, 2018 8:16 AM
    For those who enjoy reading, taking a moment to review this list of peoples’ choices is fun and enlightening. We can catch a small glimpse into the human condition, our faults, our mistakes, our innovations, our joys and the possibilities open to those who embrace rather than fear knowledge.

  • Watching old movies always comforting
    Sunday, November 4, 2018 8:36 AM
    That may not sound earth-shattering, but my relatively recent unreasonable fear of electronics reared its head and this was a major feat – one that could only be handled with hand-holding from someone patient and understanding. My library of old movies is now available to me again, and I wasted no time in indulging.

  • Think hard before voting on Nov. 6
    Sunday, October 21, 2018 10:57 AM
    Does a candidate or initiative expand, empower and enable the citizenry to have a better life, more liberty and the ability to pursue happiness? Is there “decent respect to the opinions of mankind?” I think this will be my starting point toward my voting decisions this year.
