Alright, alright…..Your Friday morning ZEN. “Soon you will die, and still you aren’t sincere, undisturbed or free from suspicion that external things can harm you, nor are you gracious to all, knowing that wisdom and acting justly are one and the same”. “This is the mark of perfection of character — to spend each day as if it were your last, without frenzy, laziness or any pretending” – Marcus Aurelius, Meditations We were CONDITIONED by those that were CONDITIONED by those that were CONDITIONED by those……that truly didn’t know any better…….they did their very best and for this we are to be eternally grateful…….because without them…..the entirety of our FOREFATHERS……the good, the bad, the ugly, the ALL……WE the PEOPLE would not even be here, NOW…..

I am going to have to start writing every morning to just get all this shit out of me…..writing is among my most favorite things to do, for no good reason.   “You do not realize who I am from what I say to you, but you have become like the Jews, for they (either) love the tree and hate its fruit (or) love the fruit and hate the tree.” Let’s get personal……..the one major advantage that I’ve had over other people is my ability to see patterns that others do not see……..I can do this without effort for a variety of reasons, one of the biggest reasons is I DO NOT SEEK TO SEPARATE this into this or that into that.   Back in the day, I would hunt whitetail deer in the early morning and in the evening would build computer servers […]
