The closer you get, the better it looks.

What?

Disney’s attention to detail.

Let it be the same with you.

The closer others get to you, the clearer are your values, morales, generosity, kindness, forgiveness, gratitude, and appreciation for our diverse world and the beautiful people in it.

Are You?

Ever been drunk on life?

Raccoon in homeowner trap
It’s a trap to believe that someday later, we can really, deeply explore our convictions.

 

Ever been drunk on life?

So intoxicated that there would be someone who loves you so much that they would willingly give their life for yours?

Christian or non-Christian, doesn’t matter.

It certainly does not.

What does matter is that we are filled with our conviction.

Something about a loving Father that is so crazy in love with people that he would be willing to sacrifice His Son.

For some it’s simply a story.

For others it’s the only story that matters.

We know this.

On The Eve Of A Father’s Scary Promise

A whisper from God. I'm sure of it.

Today is the eve of the 3rd anniversary for a new father’s scary promise to leave a trail for his young Son. A 100-day challenge to write everyday, about life’s big choices.

Dear God, thank you for showing a narrow path.

Insight: There are no guarantees in life except taxes and death. Go!

What A Young Man Should Know

Lifelong Love of Learning
Lifelong Love of Learning

“What should a young male of 21 know, and what should he be able to do?

There are no conclusive answers to those questions, but they are certainly worth asking.

A young man should know how this country is run and how it got that way.

He should know the Federalist Papers and de Tocqueville, and he should know recent world history. If he does not know what has been tried in the past, he cannot very well avoid those pitfalls as they come up in the future.

A young man should be computer literate and, moreover, should know Hemingway from James Joyce. He should know how to drive a car well–such as is not covered in Driver’s Ed.

He should know how to fly a light airplane. He should know how to shoot well. He should know elementary geography, both worldwide and local. He should have a cursory knowledge of both zoology and botany. He should know the fundamentals of agriculture and corporate economy.

He should be well qualified in armed combat, boxing, wrestling and judo, or its equivalent.

He should know how to manage a motorcycle.

He should be comfortable in at least one foreign language, more if appropriate to his background. He should be familiar with remedial medicine.

These things should be accomplished before a son leaves his father’s household.”   — Col. Jeff Cooper

Eight Posts Yesterday

CAUTION!
CAUTION!

Blah, blah, blah, right?

The Internet’s only Five-a-Day Blogger”…..

It started as a 100-day challenge to become a better writer, after a Father told his young son, “If you want to be a better reader, you should read a lot.”

So what happens yesterday?  Not five daily blogs, but eight.

Recently, had a discussion and we talked about the future of books:

  • Books will be relics on display in Museums
  • eBooks will dominate
  • Kindle will destroy the publishing industry
  • The publishing industry will watch it happen
  • Librarians will lose their jobs
  • Unless they become Cybrarians
  • There were 177,000 books published last year
  • People think it’s hard to write a book
  • Authors think their book will sell many copies
  • Barnes & Noble will go out of business eventually
  • People get ready (Bob Marley reference)

“Books” will be written one day at a time. In public, for the public.

Books will be free.  Writers will be poor. And writers will come to realize that there are far too many choices.

A whole new paradigm is being created.

One page per day, almost like reality TV.  People will read blogs, and over time, they will have “read a book” and not even know it.

Eventually, this new paradigm will give way to the next.
