Giving at the office (I work for a blood bank) some A-Negative whole red blood cells for those who need it. It’s good to help others. The first donation of the new decade. Whatever you can do to help those in need just do that.

The Thing About Certainty

In an ever-changing world certainty is one of those things that gives one comfort and some peace. However, its the mystery of life that means certainty is not always what is best. Having a certain way of doing things can mean one doesn’t have to think, it just comes naturally through practice and tradition.

Our religion is something many can be certain about. Maybe its science or history or the arts. It’s always going to be there or so we hope. All of those things are subject to new information, trends, discovery and personal interpretation.

Sure it would be great to be certain about one’s income or who wins the big game or perhaps what the rules of life are but even all that is subject to forces outside our control. In our personal lives being certain to have the love of family in friends is reassuring.

I suppose the only thing to be certain about is change and we are all subject to that in our daily lives.

Nobody knows the future with certainty. We can, however, identify ongoing patterns of change.

Alvin Toffler

I think Mr. Toffler is on to something. The future is not a lock but if we pay attention we can be ready for the change that will certainly come.

Certainty isn’t certain.

About My Writing/Blogging

blogging blur business communication

I am more of an old school blogger and less content creator. My writing is within the confines of creating a post of things I find sacred, serious and even silly. My posts are short and concise featuring writing, media and sometimes both. My goal is to be a good all-around blogger where I can connect with fellow bloggers and others.

My Blog, What Do You Think?

To improve my blog what do you think about what I post here. My posts can be informative, inspirational, infuriating and other stuff that begins with the letter I. Thanks for your feedback. Anything you would improve upon?

My Facebook Fast Continues And It’s Still Good

It’s been 5 weeks since my Facebook fast and I am not missing it much. Believe me its done wonders for my mental health and has helped me focus on my blogging which is a good thing. At some point, I am going to have to deal with it and pare it down to something I don’t have to tend. Right now my profile is deactivated so nothing is lost. As for now, I am keeping on this course.

The One Month Mark Without #Facebook

One month ago I went on a Facebook fast for personal reasons. It’s been a great experience where I have cleared my head and focused on other areas of expression like my blog. I remain connected on Twitter and Instagram. I don’t regret leaving one bit, but I know a return is in sight sometime in the future. So far so good though and I’ll go back when I am good and ready. Until then, steady on as they say.

Quick Blog Tips – Shaking The Blogging Block To Keep On Blogging! #bloggers #writing #writers

Try these ideas out and most importantly keep on blogging!

Streaming and Dreaming

So many streams

So much Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Amazon Prime

So many choices, so little time

So many things to see and experience

So many stories to be told

So be careful when you binge lest you get old

So much, too much to pick from

After a while, it isn’t so much fun.

The Internet is bending but will it break

Because of the powerful streams, people are enjoying

Make time for yourself. Your favorite characters will be there when you get back

All this streaming can inspire some dreaming

Hey can you bring me some popcorn and a beverage or two

Stream, stream, stream is all we wanna do.

Enjoy your Mandalorian and that Baby Yoda too.

All of it is streaming to you.

Yeah, there’s too much to watch.
