I really like those ugly, inarticulate, wordy, word-salad rants. The truth is, I’m not really writing TO anyone here. I like to put these ideas out to invite everyone to participate in the discussion or to counter my arguments with better arguments. But I’m not posting FOR anyone other than myself. Not to say reaction’s don’t influence my thinking. But the reason I like these ugly posts is because I have found it really helps me better formulate my thoughts. I am using this platform to think out loud. I’m not an intellectual, I’m not well read and I don’t bring any formal skills to the table here. I am merely trying to sort myself out and take in everything that’s happening so quickly around me. I may not always communicate effectively but doing this, I think, will make for good practice.
I am attempting to do right by myself, my family and my community.
Thanks for joining me!
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. – Reinhold Neibuhr
