Coming Home Once Again
Most Recent Update
January 25, 2022
As the new year progresses onward, I thought it time to update this last website of mine with some thoughts, ideas, assertions, and even perhaps insights into the increasingly vacant space containing what used to be my mind.
I find that I am far less judgmental nowadays, way more tolerant, and yet I seemingly still possess enough brain cells to make certain judgements and assertions on the nature of life, living, and other subjects that sweep uninvited into my mind, from strange and unusual sources.
I am to my delight finding a "flexibility" of thoughts and viewpoints which surprises me. As I have written in other places, I am far less judgmental, less critical, more accepting, and way more tolerant, while still maintaining my old ability - previously known as my "bullshit detector" - which has become increasingly useful, even though not openly wielded in polite company, at least usually. It is particularly useful when observing what comes from my brain through my mouth, and keeps me humble and able to continue to be invited to share the company of other humans and most animals.

Previous Post for Context:
One of my English to Spanish dictionaries defines the Spanish verb "llegar" to mean "to come home" or "to reach" or "to have enough" and by extension, "to be fulfilled."
I take that to mean that one finally has come to the place of full self-acceptance, is satisfied and happy not only with the previous journey, but is content in the place in which that individual has come to, and has learned to accept that with grace, thankfulness, joy, and peace.
While one may never experience reaching that space, I believe I have come as close as I will most likely ever get to the full realization of that word, and that acceptance is the key to that last step.
And so may it be with You, as it is within Your choice to attain that, since it is already there, and only has to be discovered by You to bring it forth. (Please forgive my over-use of capitalization to give significance to certain words. I spent a lot of time in the sixties and seventies gazing at my navel when I could locate it between the folds of my somewhat larger belly in those days. Also, the capitalization connotes the importance of Humans in this universe and suggests there is merit in examining our role in the cosmos.)
And so I present for your consideration some meandering and yet - to me - urgent and provocative thoughts that passed through my brain and rested a while for consideration and perhaps sharing. It is what I do nowadays; I enjoy the process, and hope it finds a little nook in your brain/mind/consciousness to prick some interest, allow some humor, and provoke a thought or two or three.
You are invited to view these sites, and prepare to be
provoked, prodded, and perhaps pleased.
