Am I Unusual?  (Yes, This Is Rhetorical)    Today, March 30, marks ten years since I joined ActiveRain.  At least I think so.  I have checked my join date in the past but I am a bit unsure how to search for that information again.  I guess I could ask a question in the Q&A section.  I digress.  S...
 Can You Hear Me Now?   I previously mentioned taking some classes.

 Getting It Right. . . Well, Sometimes  I know it's not the best of times for many with all sorts of issues and more challenging moments possibly a part of the future.   But wait...there is still plenty of opportunity to experience much, enjoy people and things plus continue to learn.  And laugh....

 Let Me Get Back To You There's certainly times when a quick answer or a prompt response is both necessary as well as appreciated.  In my opinion, this should not come with eliminating perspective, thoughtful discussion and identifying logical alternatives.   This is definitely not time to exhibi...
 And Then I Noticed. . .   It might go unnoticed but not today.  As I walked by the Little Free Library on my path home this morning, I saw a couple going through the offerings available to them at the corner where members of the community share and read as well as replenish on a regular basis.  ...
 C Is For Context Context is all around us.  In language.  The written word and in speech.   It leads to better communication with a real connection as one of the goals.  Maybe the most important.  And it extends to all forms of everyday living.  To gain additional insight the words of others oft...
 Anticipating Thirteen As It Approaches It's almost here.  It is not particularly difficult to avoid but there are some who seem to steer clear, refrain and ignore lots of things.  For good reason and for no reason at all.  Of course, I am talking about that not-so-rare situation known as Friday ...
