June 6, 2013: The Not-Even-Ready for Bumper-Sticker Philosophy

Brought to you by Blah, Blah, Blah, a division of Book-in-a-Drawer Publications. Trademarked, copyrighted, imprinted, branded, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Take away an army’s boots and you have crippled them. Author In war, when it comes to the need for “boots on the ground,” bare feet on the ground just won’t work—it’s a bit hard to […]

October 1, 2012: Personal Sabotage

On the surface, sabotage sounds unidirectional and that direction is all bad. However, what if there was an underlying silver lining when we sabotage ourselves? Let’s start with asking if personal sabotage is necessary. I’m thinking such sabotage doesn’t kick-in unless it’s a facet of required change. Even the word “required” is a bit suspect, […]

Group Sabotage

Sabotage is not just a personal undertaking, but one that can involve a group of folks, like the gathering-of-idiots example in the bit on personal sabotage written previously. And again, like personal sabotage, group sabotage could actually be a guiding light—a wake-up call that the body-whatever is wandering off trail. In writing this, I’m not […]

eThoughts : December 1, 2010: Holiday Thoughts, Part I

For those who are not chronologically advanced, the Holiday season may have been very slow in arriving. But for those like me, 63-years along, I simply cannot believe it—again.

eThoughts : Dogs, Egos, Personality, and Salavation

Continuing with the theme of an essential Home and the inherent promise in being alive, I’ve been wondering about dogs again, emotional wounds, and egos. It seems to me there are some good parallels. As I’ve written before, dogs want to know who is the alpha leader. If they know, they’re good, if they don’t, […]

eThoughts : Journeying in Purgatorio

Recently I saw a television program about a dog kennel licensed by the government to buy and sell dogs—which they did, buying mostly from suspect sources and selling mostly to researchers. This particular kennel was being targeted by an animal rights group for abuses to the dogs. Indeed, the video footage presented reminded me of […]

eThoughts : Emphasize the Promise and Achievement Will Come

It’s a cute title isn’t it? But, I guess I can’t just let it go at that, though I once thought a book of titles might just work (during those days I could come up with snappy titles but was too lazy to actually write anything having to do with the title). I digress. But […]
