Watcha Doin'?

Exploring part of my mind, and writing it out on the internet, specifically on this Web Log. Something I do every day to keep my brain fresh. Each day, another part; you just never know what's in there and you can find some nice surprises.

Ah, a research door: I'm researching a word the Merriam-Webster dictionary people forgot to include. They suggested if I can show it's been used over a long period of time, in various media and not just in one area, they will consider it. I kept at it, asking my friends to send me any references they found; I also went through dusty reference books in equally dusty corners of libraries. "Hizzoner," the light second reference to His Honor, the Mayor, is now listed. Took five years and about a hundred referenced citations.

Another door: The possibilities. Not that I was born in 1942's United States, white, male, East coast. No; the possibility that I was born on this planet, or in this galaxy. I could have been born a million years ago on another galaxy to another family. My religion could have been --I don't know-- something, most likely presided over by a Saviour who might have come in much the same way as on Earth. Who knows?

Here's a door marked talents: Are you born with them, or do they develop over time? I wanted to play the piano, so I taught myself when I was 21; took trumpet lessons at 37. My brother's great communications mastery, until he was 60, was the ballpoint pen and now he is designing his own web pages, putting Photo Shopped digital photos on them and in general using the new technology rather well.

One door marked "impossible": There are things we will never do, but would love to accomplish. I think it's important to have unreachable goals. Paris Hilton, the spoiled little brat, recently said she's bored; if she weren't so rich, that wouldn't happen. We need it, this unattainable. Because, in reality, I almost certainly will never achieve mine, I will never get to the point where I will have had it all and be bored. I can dream, and smile as I do so.

As we say in radio, "That's our blog for today; thanks for tuning in and we'll see you tomorrow."

There's a door marked "the path not taken". What do you imagine is behind that?

Yes, the path not taken.....does leave room for letting one's mind go astray and as I have said twice in my life, '' When you are the writer, the one in whose hand is the plume, you are God, you determine the destiny of all who fall into your ink bottle''.

Thepath not taken does shake our curiosity a bit. Sadly, or happily, there is no known cure for curiosity....

RuthC. I leave the exploration of this path to your imagination and curiosity, as I too will also create the possibiliy of what's on the other side of that door
