Benefits of coma

It would be mighty irresponsible for an individual to live a life with their head down only being concerned with where they’re headed. That isn’t a general criticism directed broadly. It’s a specific comment directed at one person in particular. Me.

Truth be told, I haven’t honestly always (as in very recently) been the most accepting of change — when it comes to myself, at least. Being so strong headed about certain behaviours has proven to be the least productive of my efforts going forward. Especially concerning matters of the heart. Hard lessons learned. And I’m working on it.

I don’t pretend to have all the answers. In fact, I’m incredibly insecure about the “answers” I do have. And I hope that never changes. However as sure as I am about not being adequately informed about everything, I’m more than secure in proclaiming no-one is.

This is neither a historical or a religious commentary toward the significance of this film. This is merely a couple of first impressions from a piece of entertainment. Taken at face value…

Powerful and Recommended

I’ve had the opportunity — it would seem to have been awhile ago — to see the documentary Blinders: The Truth Behind the Tradition (YouTube link). And, today, I finally had the chance to listen to Donny Moss (the films “creator”) talking about his movie concerning “New York City’s horse-drawn carriage industry,” on Animal Voices (interview originally posted May 12th, 2009).

Which, subsequent to hearing the show, “inspired” me to watch it once again. It’s a very powerful and highly recommended film, I think, people need to see…

Until I Hear

Following the local news these days is much more appealing to me than watching a bunch of “liberals” give each other hand jobs in Denver. I don’t know about you…

That and I dare not forget to mention that and the Maple Leaf tainted meat recall has grown to just short of 250 some odd products? And my Grandfathers doctors still aren’t sure why he’s sick? With their efforts now concentrating on his stomach? Continue reading Until I Hear
