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?

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.

Blogging Is Very Much Alive and Kicking

Those who say blogging is dead doesn’t know what they are talking about. WordPress people would have something to say about that. Blogging is life, blogging is a second religion, blogging is good. Right now its where I hang my social hat.
