Blank Sheet of Paper

This can be scary, a blank sheet of paper. Not as scary as last night’s traditional “ghost and goblin” Halloween traditions.  But scary nonetheless.

In today’s world, it’s more like a white (blank) page on a blog.

The pressure of the clock.  The fifth of five daily blogs.  The thought of writing something just to write to fill up the space.

Scary?

Yes, and sometimes, necessary.  Carpe diem.

Hearing It 100 Times?

“Hearing something 100 times is not as good as seeing it once”. — Japanese proverb

“It’s not the material things in life that are important”. Most of us have heard this so many times we’ve  lost track, right?

If we know this to be true, that material things aren’t the important thing, why do we work so hard to get so much stuff?  That’s what I want to know.

I’d like to take a risk and ask you readers to leave a comment with your take on this human dilemma.  Happy Halloween.

jeff noel Aggressively Unfancy?

Is jeff noel aggressively unfancy?  Well, one thing for certain, I’m certainly not too funny when I blog.  But I sure do try to be aggressively unfancy.

And the concept of being unfancy is one most of us have never heard of. We have, but not in those exact words.

Aggressively unfancy means, to me, a person who is not focused on looking smart or sexy.  Sort of an ordinary person who deep down inside understands that they are blessed beyond measure simply by being alive.  And that that is more than enough.

Having a roof over your head, food on your plate, someone to love and someone to love you back.  Ya with me?  (this one’s for you MDJ)

Having a car that starts every time, someone in your life who is more important than you, a clean shirt and indoor plumbing – these things make us rich.  And potentially, aggressively unfancy. But certainly not funny.  Ya with me?  (this one’s for everyone)
