Find Particular Stuff
… him who writes this stuff.
Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

There is so much I want to write about. Not just want; almost have to . . . I can’t quite put it into words but it stems from looking around and wondering if others are seeing what I am … Continue reading
. . . not. A thing that bothers me – and I mean, really bothers me – is the propensity of people to assign meaning or intent to everyday events. Some will do it explicitly (“thank you, god, for this or … Continue reading
One can easily argue the duplicity of people when it comes to the value of being smart. There are many definitions of smart. Some relate to specific metrics (IQ) while others place the emphasis on matters that are harder to … Continue reading
I should warn people . . . I may not be around much during the next few months. Wait . . . is that clapping and cheering I hear? I’m still going to post stuff here whenever I need a … Continue reading

There are noises on the airwaves. Some of them relate to Freedom of Speech. But, before I get to something that means a lot to me, I want to touch on the underlying reason I’m writing this. I am referring, of … Continue reading
I’m on the third day of writing and the fourth incarnation of this post. The first few versions were full of venomous words and sentences borne out of a deep anger. I normally would have hit “publish” as soon as … Continue reading
Romance. Readers probably don’t know I’m a sucker for romance. It likely stems from my solitary life before I went to college and the fact I was incredibly lucky in finding my soulmate. I don’t gush on about my wife … Continue reading
Despite many things happening since my last one of these, I’m not yet ready to comment on the screwed up politics, the racial fiascos, or the religious nuts stories dominating the news. Right now I need to maintain my calm, concentrate … Continue reading
“Here he goes again!” I can hear the cries of people tired of me writing about this stuff. BUT . . . it’s not about what they think; it is, in fact, about stuff. Our stuff. Every so often, starting … Continue reading
It was cold today, and an amazing light rose from the East, warming the land for a while. Dihydrogen oxide began lifting from its resting place, gathering in great masses mules that flew and typed and great heron from ancient lands … Continue reading
I’m sure it’s related to old age. Or, maybe I’m just a jerk. Things are finding it easier to get under my skin. Disperser, some say, you are getting worked up about really insignificant details in the overall scheme of … Continue reading
I’m avoiding looking at stuff that will set me off, so right now I’m in a decent mood. This, despite laying down and holding a massively bruised leg elevated (it looks like someone bombarded my leg with purple-paint-filled balloons. Massive angry purple … Continue reading
If one is lucky to have been born in the US, chances are they have the luxury of a warm shower every day. Maybe not everyone, but many, and no one gives it a second thought. For most people, it’s … Continue reading
