Opinions and more

We have opinions. We like to express ourselves. Maybe to show off knowledge or perhaps a distinct lack thereof.

I sound off rather frequently on a variety of subjects, usually related to a hot topic of the occasion, and my opinions are just my form of free and open expression. You can agree, disagree, ignore, comment, whatever. It don’t matter to me.

Opinions are free. They are freedom. They are encouraged and appreciated. If anyone suggests otherwise, they are wrong. That is my honest opinion.

But, as I have learned recently, opinions can also be powerful and supposedly offensive. That is why I am strongly leaning towards limiting my tweets and even my posting on other social sites, like Facebook and Instagram and elsewhere. I have said this before, I have tried before, the urge to post frequently always has called me back. Maybe this time can be different. I have no idea.

So, stay tuned, I will post more or less right here. This is my one permanent home on this old Internet!

Christmas 2018

Another Eve of Christmas moving through the night. Just like all the others, no tree, no presents, no stockings, and no love. My life is different. Though, I am not unique in this fact, it does not make living it any easier. I watch the movies, read the stories, and often find myself wishing I could have lived a more ordinary life. But, then, what is fun about being ordinary?

To say I have been floating without direction would be inaccurate. I have just been aimless without cause, but not for lack of trying. My dependence on others is shameful and part of my listless diability. I try to focus, but often realize my mind drifts elsewhere. Headaches come and go. Like, right now, I have a bit of a head-cold, or whatever it is, and my coughing and runny nose make it difficult to remain focused on what I want to do, write a cohesive blog entry here.

I know this one is going on a bit longer than usual. That is because I am using the Bluetooth keyboard connected to my tablet to type this prose out. I promise you, nothing this long could possibly be crafted on the touch-screen keyboard. It would be too tiresome and complicated.

The day will pass. Onwards to 2019! What can be accomplished? Should I stir up trouble by making predictions? I have never been very successful at making predictions. I may try to do so with my next post. Stay tuned for more.
