10-30-13-My Morning Thoughts: You know I get a lot of behind the scene messages and reply’s from my morning thoughts folks that are kept confidential because some just don’t like to put their opinions and feelings out there. They use my e-mail, text, phone, websites, twitter, YouTube and sometimes I get hand written notes in the mail box (now that last spot is kind a scary sometimes)…but I must say I totally respect their wishes and understand why they keep their opinions out of the mainstream but I am very grateful they share their thoughts with me too…under the mainstream, if you will. Whenever you can converse about things, discuss other issues, hear different opinions and learn from others, about their experiences and traditions…how-can-that-not-be-a meaningful path throughout life…well I think it is…and I thank you…plain and simple.
10-29-13-My Morning Thoughts: Maybe? Do you think we all will get along someday? Is there a chance that major disagreement could still become amicable? I would think that compromise be obliged to become a great deal more widespread first. I’m certain that the billions of people in the world would get along just fine once they all had a chance to realize first hand that were all the same or at least want and like similar things…I don’t know, it’s a pretty naive way to think I presume but I can’t help to imagine that if everyone had a chance to sit around a campfire with some favorite food and drink while listening to some acoustic music and real conversations it could all work out…just fine…plain and simple.
10-28-13-My Morning Thoughts: “The Walk Home” Those of you that had the pleasure of walking to school back in the day…do you remember the hurry up and get going mornings? Trying to get ready and mom making lunch and throwing it in a paper bag while your friends already at the door waiting for you?...I know you remember this!...but…on the flipside to that you must remember how it took you twice as long to walk home…mainly because you had nothing to do but fool around and play and talk and gaze at clouds and throw stones and kick cans and jump over sidewalk cracks and get chased out of yards you were cutting threw and stopping in stores without money and…well…what ever your little heart wanted to do you just did on the walk home from school…basically because…you could…plain and simple.
10-25-13-My Morning Thoughts: How do you think the president’s we’ve had in our lifetime will be remembered by the generations that come after? Do you think it will be their policies or their character or could they be remembered by specific situations that may have defined their presidency for them?...history can be just as harsh as it can be pleasant and history can also take a long time to get it right…if ya know what I mean…it is a crazy job though, because no matter what you do as president…there’s always the other side’s opinion and there always will be…enjoy the weekend…plain and simple.
10-24-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Experience” Every day is an experience and with each day of experience we become more proficient by understanding our strengths and weaknesses…and whilst understanding…we gain wisdom…and on that note my wisdom tells me I have to get to work so I can pay for all the material things that I didn’t really need in the first place…crazy isn’t it…plain and simple.
10-23-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Imagine” “All we are saying is give peace a chance”…”reach out and touch somebody’s hand”…”you are so beautiful to me”…”let’s get together and it will be all right”…”heart of gold”…”summer breeze”…”Imagine”…maybe we need more songs like this again to put this weary world back on the right track…plain and simple.
10-22-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Good Feelings” I have a distinct feeling that something great is going to happen today. I don’t know what it is but it just feels good this early morning….hope this feeling passes on to each and every one of you…have a great day all…plain and simple.
10-21-13-My Morning Thoughts: “LUNCH TIME” Is it lunch time yet…remember when lunch was a blast…slamming down your lunch as fast as humanely possible so you could get out in the school yard to play with your friends…wouldn’t it be nice if we took that approach as adults during our lunch break? Could you imagine your office going outside and playing 4 square to blow off some steam…Or maybe the road construction crews pulling out an old football for a quick game of street ball…or the fast food personnel grabbing a fast game of tag in the parking lot…it may sound a little crazy but even as I’m writing this I have high expectations for lunch today…only 4 or 5 hours till lunch!...have a great Monday all…plain and simple.
10-18-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Being Old” You know I don’t want to be old! I don’t mind getting older or the age thing never really bothered me but the being old thing that kind-a gets to me. Not being able to do the things you’ve done all your life is going to suck quite frankly…and the way I rolled-out-of-bed this morning like it was the first time I ever got up in my life really put it into perspective! How do things continually hurt in the morning for no apparent reason when I know I didn’t do anything but sleep last night! Why do my knees crack all the way down the steps? How come my eyes aren’t completely focused until my second or third cup of coffee? Why is it so hard to put my sox on now!!!!...well, the one good thing about the morning is that…first, it is another morning…and second…something is always going through my mind when I sit down at this computer…plain and simple.
10-17-13-My Morning Thoughts: by Larry Insana an apolitical folk singer that spells very poorly. Truth or Dare? 1) Am I really an apolitical folk singer?...answer…NO, I also like rock, country, blues, jazz, bluegrass, reggae and a host of others. 2) Do I really spell that bad?...answer…yes, I absolutely suck at spelling however, I must admit, all this practice on “My Morning Thoughts” has improved my spelling greatly…And I have to say that…you CAN… teach an old dog new tricks…I’m living proof! 3) Are these really my morning thoughts…answer…yes, whatever comes to mind I let it out. Sometime I get ideas from the news or an old show or from topics stated on the internet although the morning thoughts that I’m most partial to are the ones that come from the memory banks that have strolled out of life’s journey…plain and simple.
