    I Ponder a Little Too Much.

    When I'm alone for too long or in the company of others who think like me and who I can bounce ideas off of, I ponder everything. Life, death, everything inbetween, before, and after has or will at some point cross my mind. Hell, I went so far as to write two journal pages on...

    Getting clarity in ones mind.

    . I feel like a just recently walked out of a dark tunnel onto a hillside... Granted I haven't seen the top of the hill yet nor the entire valley but I've suddenly realized that there's more to this life then a dark dusty hole in the side of a mountain.. Figure of speech...

    Food For Thought.....

    1. I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes. 2. There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead. 3. Life is sexually transmitted. 4. Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. 5...

    Ponderment Of Colors

    Have you ever noticed that we literally cannot imagine any colors that are not integrated into our world. There are: Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, black. Now try to imagine something outside of that color spectrum. We cannot. Our imaginations are limiting...

    People, some you have known all your life. Some have come in and out and you can not remember them. Some may only be for a fleeting moment but you will always remember them. I find this amazing and just can not find the rhyme or reason, one more thing for my mind to ponder.

    I was just thinking about themes of hardship

    or heartache we all experience. Sometimes I'll think about something and never have an answer to it, like what if there never IS an answer for it? Like, why do innocent children die each day? Why do we have to feel so low about ourselves, compare each other, etc.? And, if these...

    (It took our nation 216 years to rack up the

    first $8.5 trillion in debt... then just 8 more years to double that amount.) I ponder how we let it get to this point. Why did we allow a narcissistic despot do this to us? It really is mind boggling to me. But I guess when you combine an ignorant, complacent citizenry with a...
