Amazing things come in fours or a quartet. Barbershop Quartets make great music. So do the Beatles and a bunch of other four-piece bands. Four people usually anchor your news programs at night. I grew up in a family with four people. In “Sex In The City” we saw a quartet of women light up the screen with friendship and a lot of glam. Four basketball teams are left in the college basketball tournament. There is something interesting about the number four or a quartet that makes things just even, just square.
When something is something we are not familiar with it can be foreign to us. Countries not our own are foreign to us. It’s when we open our hearts and minds that things and places that are foreign become things we know. It takes courage to go from foreign to familiar. To known from unknown. Having a open mind and open heart can break down barriers and take you to that place where everything around you is known and even loved.
My friend Rev. Kelvin Sauls tuned me into the Winan family while at Hiwassee College. Their message of change is needed in times like these.
Everyone has regrets on how they handled a situation. Perhaps more thought should have gone into how to deal with it. Every situation is different the only thing that is constant is us. Our gut reactions can make things better or worse depending on the circumstances. No one is perfect and its that realization that tells us we are still very human. The only thing we can do is to move forward and learn from it all.
I blog because I want to express myself and share the things that interest me. Perhaps my reasons for blogging are different than other folks. Many of the blogs I have seen as of late are very well done and seem to have a singular focus on a particular subject matter. Many people have a particular subject they like to write about and its interesting how they bring their passions into the world. Which leads me to think I need to sharpen my focus a little, well maybe. Can a personal, general purpose blog be of interest to people who’s blogging game is on-point?
The greatest advice I can take is to be genuine and to engage my readers on a personal level about the experiences we all share together. As I spend more time here on WordPress the more I realize I need to step up my game a little. Friends you have amazing blogs and I hope to be as good as you all.
I still believe in the power of a blog to change, inform, enlighten, inspire and entertain. Without connecting to people a blog is not doing what it should and could.
