Dangling Thought Vomit

Golf is emblematic of life – just when you want to give up and quit, a perfect shot changes your perspective. It gives hope that all has been worth it…until the next flubbed shot, making you again second guess.

Despite efforts to make it otherwise, everything in life is a privilege. Rights are only certain irrefutable privileges deemed necessitating official mandate and codification.

In a world of 24/7 news coverage, the adage “no news is good news” is no longer viable. Everything is news, even when it is not.

If you read the bible, any version, God – who may or may not be clinically bipolar – constantly is trying to destroy humanity. Not until someone unselfishly thwarts the effort does he mellow and concern himself with building a new sparkly nebula or whatever in another region of the universe. (Perhaps, accompanied by a serene Morrison/Hendrix/Bonham jam session?)

You can root for the home team, and still cheer for the other team.

At one point, being “old school” simply meant doing it the way it was supposed to be done. Whether you attended school or not.

Timing is indeed everything:  time of your life, when your time is up, times that try men’s souls, etc. If you don’t take time to consider the possibility, you may miss it altogether.

Before the age of social media, there were many people we used to know. Now, there are many people we thought we knew.

There are too many stop signs along the journey of our destination, and not enough warnings about the detours that stray us from it.

You really do have the right to fight for your right to party. (R.I.P. Adam Yauch, a.k.a. MCA.)
