It is 10:49 AM on Friday December 13th, 2019. I finally have time to take a breath as the past two weeks have been a complete blur of work and events. Last week was our national sales meeting and holiday party in Texas. Including travel time that takes up a big 4 day chunk and…… Continue reading Journal Entry 12.13.19
At 42 years of age my understanding of authority has evolved and I wanted to get these thoughts down. When you’re a kid there are people you just have to obey without question. This would include: your parents, teachers, priests, adults and now that I think about it, just about everyone except other kids. We…… Continue reading Authority!
I was raised Catholic and went to Catholic school throughout elementary and high school. Catholicism is what I was taught and what I knew. I am no longer Catholic and as an adult am in complete disbelief at how everyone just looked and still looks the other way when it came to pedophile priests.

I’ve recently become fascinated with the ‘ancient world,’ which is defined as the time before the fall of the Roman…… Continue reading The Ancient World, Middle Ages, Christianity and Modern Times
It is 3:45 AM and I’m feeling a little grumpy. I did not want to feel grumpy, I wanted to be in a holiday mood! So perhaps this post will let me release a bit of grumpiness and then perhaps if I concentrate I can switch my mood. The reason I’m a bit sour is…… Continue reading Politics, Religion and getting into the holiday spirit

The best time to write is when I awake in the middle of the night, around 2-3 AM. There is an energy in the…… Continue reading Journal Entry – Tuesday 7.21.2015
