We Are What We Pretend to Be

April 17, 2017   •   Posted under:

Anyone who has read my blog for any length of time knows that I like a good phrase. One that might be from a movie or a quote from someone. A good line to me is one that provokes me to stop and read it again, and then again, and then to save it somewhere to consider it again.   I came across one a couple of years back when I was viewing a list of great quotes. It was attributed to a writer named…

Life Messages: Write Them, Lest They Forget

March 17, 2017   •   Posted under: Lifestyle, Relationships, Community

I’m running some ads on Facebook for my blogging platform Silvrback, one of which reads as follows:   “In living, our stories are made. In writing, our stories are remembered. Write them, lest they forget.” I like that.   I’ve been thinking about, and intending to write about, legacies for some time now. In part, it is to be an article about blogging and how it is…

Rethinking Friendship

April 30, 2011   •   Posted under: Relationships

The hardest thing to do in life is to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.   When there’s an argument or some discord between two people it's so hard for either side to look at the situation from the other’s perspective.   Forgiveness is also hard to deal with when a rift is raised between friends.
