    Language is confusing - I'm not referring to foul or abusive language but just everyday spoken language. I was with a group the other day and this subject can up. It brought to mind that if we're taught a language other than what we speak we don't get the whole picture. Language is like a virus it evolves. For example we can read a book written one hundred years or more and understand it. Yes, there maybe some words we'll have to look up in the dictionary but we can understand it. But the fashion or style it's written in is not how we speak. Another example is I can read a newspaper from another "English" speaking nation and understand most of it but not all - the idioms are different from place to place. Just though I'd get that written - deep thinking?

    Some people evidently love labels - they just throw them around. Thinking back I 've been called everything from gay, commie to just plain stupid. Does that bother me - yes. I'm being judged by people who aren't qualified to judge. That's my thought for the day.

    Lately I've been questioning myself about my painting. I have always painted what I see or what I feel like painting. I'm not a commercial artist -I don't make a living painting. I just do it for self satisfaction. Recently I've been looking at other people's painting and they are making a statement or expressing their feelings in their work. That idea shatters my concept of why I paint - should I express my feelings? Do I have anything to say? Does anyone care about what I think. Should I care about what others think?  I don't express my opinions openly for fear of getting things thrown at me....or some such reaction. I think I might try it but what if I become an outcast?  I think I have always been the "odd person out." So, I think I'll start expressing my opinions about my life, my community, my country, politics and possible religion. I'm not certain about religion because that really rattling the cage - so to speak. Well I glad I got that off my chest and I appreciate the opportunity to.....?

    I realize there is a difference between speaking and writing. When speaking the listener can interpret what's being said by watching body language, facial expression and also listening to the tone and loudness of voice. The written word can be easily misinterpreted. Unfortunately, the reader applies the written word to their own demeaner and sometime completely misses the train of thought of the writer.Perhaps this has been a problem from the time mankind started writing things down. I understand that Plato didn't like writing because it would stop people from memorizing. Maybe language is going through the same transition with the advent of texting and tweeting. We'll see.PS I neither text nor tweet. Guess I'm a misanthroupe

"Going down the highway..."

There was a song which had/has the words "traveling down the highway" - well thats about the way I feel. My life so far has been traveling down the road. I'm not complaining. True, looking back there are things I wish could have happened some time ago. But when I think about those events in my life I have to ask "would I have handled them any differently?" I probably wasn't ready for those changes. 

In reviewing my life's changes I can now accepts where I am and how I got here. About 25 years ago I had my horoscope read and the person who did the reading told me change was coming. She said my life to that point was like moving through a mine field and I had reached the end of it.

She said according to my scope I had a lot of traveling to do.

Well, she was right on. I have journeyed a lot over the past quarter century and I feel that I've got a ways to go. I had a few stumbles - stroke, heart attack, a few bumps and bruses, lost a few friends and made some new friends. I used to kid and say I haven't reached my potential yet. I hope I don't reach my potential - that would mean I learned all my lessons. I still have a lot to learn.

Sorry I ramgle sometimes
