Be An Excellent Reporter

There is a slang term that Ernest Hemingway used to quote about fraud or scams,”The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in,shockproof,shit detector.”

I try to be a good writer by doing my research,study,method and more.

Boredom is a four letter word to me and you.

Brevity helps relieve boredom.

Fact checking keeps me be honest and diligent.

I like to witness and experience much of what I write or report.

I also use as much common speech and language as I can muster to reach the most people.

To think, write and be honest, true….

Runner

I gave up running about 10 years ago.

At the time I had my reason and I believe my health is better served to sticking to my decision.

I still like to walk, but much of my time is spent walking on the job to the tune of 10 thousand steps a day.

But, I also drive most of the day and I am walking less often because I am addicted to using my company car.

I have reintroduced walking during the weekend to loose my bad habit of driving everywhere and improving my movement each day.

I like to wear the proper footwear.

Because my job requires 12 hours of standing each day, I like to wear good runners that support my standing and walking each day.

I have a job that requires me to wear separate clothing: work clothing and foot wear.

So I buy additional shoes for hiking and casual wear.

My latest experiment is a new pair of runners.

I do not endorse these runners but if you are curious, check out the link below.

The Power of Self

Self knowledge may have a resurgence after all the chaos on the society plate.

I need to reflect on my own power to maintain myself.

There is one fundamental truth, know yourself.

So, why do we doubt ourselves amd society at large.

I think it is due to self harm: the last two years has seen a pandemic like Covid and fentanyl.

Each of us has been challenged by these events in negative and perhaps more recently a number of positive ways.

There are many tangled up parts to ourselves that we process on the daily basis, but were overwhelmed by them these last two years.

I count myself lucky that it hasn’t been worse.

For the most part, I am grateful for my job, friends and family.

So, why state the obvious?

Recovery from our pain and lose over this two years means different things to different people.

To me it means do no harm, get on and enjoy my better day.

I still inch on with normalcy like everyone.

But I focus on my philosophy, family and friends with care.

I focus on myself and my work with care.

I strive to do no harm.

Recently, I have found some joy in reconnecting with old habits like going to the library.

Being a fan of the institute, I am happy to witness its resurrection from restrictions, and other changes.

I am beginning to practice my weekly routine to visit and borrow in person. I recommend “News and How To Use It.” It has a short introduction by a mainstream expert and an alphabet selection of his important opinion that will inspire those who need to know.

Lastly, I recommend that everyone needs to visit their local library once a week. Try on this good habit, who knows what you will pickup at being ‘normal’ in society at large.

I think we all need to reconnect with our society. Get ready for round two of the pandemics, we all need to take back our personal power by finding some recovery from what has happened over the last two years.

Henry David Thoreau

A Life

An excellent book by Laura Dassow Walls

Philosophy is never cheap.

Of the classical branches of philosophy, this one being aesthetics (concerned with beauty and art),

Both the author and the philosopher/writer/walker, bring the reader toward the metaphysics while exploring the inner space of inner peace.

Open yourself to the art and beauty here and now.

“Wonder is the feeling of a philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder.”

-Plato, Theaetetus, 155

The Simple Life

Living is doing, and doing may make sense out of the day.

What a routine: waking up to one, working through one, being with one, seeing one and so on , ad infinitum.

Philosophy is relating to common sense and doing it for the sake of itself and to produce more of it.

A bit like that snake that eats itself but being able to keep the malevolence out of the way.

Maybe that is the best way to treat it….

Life is important and the only time to live.

But death is coming and it happens every day.

Lots of books about it.

Lots of philosophy about it.

But it is important to make the experience be your own way of living each day.

Some say, each day is a blessing,

and philosophy tends to say an awful lot about life to express a simple way to live each day.

Most of us are still too full of ourselves to truly live a simple life.

Maybe that is the hook needed to persuade the majority of people to slow down a little and maybe even live a little,

Some phrase it like ‘The Joy Still Felt’, (an autobiography by Isaac Asimov) or living the simple life.

Start out this way, do it each day, do more and more and grow a simple way to live until that is all you do.

Consider this challenge to engage the moment and live simply as often as you and others are able.

You can’t go wrong.

Just do it.

The habit is good and is its own reward.
