Posts Tagged ‘Richard J Geib’

I now have twenty-five active followers!!
Whuu Huu!!
To commemorate the occasion, I’ve added a new section on the right side of my blog titled:  “Tributaries And Eddies“.
These are folks with sites of their own.  Some of them have commented at my site and some are just followers.  Either way, I wanted to mark the occasion by trying to promote their sites in my own little way.
Now, you may notice there are not twenty-five links there.  That’s because not all of the folks who follow me have blogs or web sites.  Also, in one case (Richard J. Geib’s Web/Blog), the blogger doesn’t follow me, but his was one of the first sites I found that helped inspire me.  I think, over time, these links will eventually loose their “follower” status and become more like Richard’s – sites which have inspired me, made me laugh, or made me think.  Anyway, if you’re one of those I’ve included, keep up the good work — shout out to the universe, you never know who is listening / reading!!!

To relax and enter into the narrative of a good book is for me a pleasure rarely surpassed!  It is to escape the prison of one’s self, the tyranny of the here and now.  It is to understand today better through the prism of yesterday.  Good books are how the dead speak to the living, and their reading is how you and I participate in the great conversation of humanity.  To read is to travel across time to hear the voices of the sages and bards, to pronounce judgment on the high and mighty, to succor the afflicted, and to afflict the wicked.  It is to be alone never and bored rarely.

Disagreement among ourselves is neither a vice nor a source of weakness; however, caustic incivility and dogmatic intolerance in the public discourse are poison to a democracy.  In my opinion, too many people yell at each other in the United States today.  People yelling at each other solves nothing.

Today I spent a great deal of time on the web looking into William Faulkner after reading a copy of his acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize for Literature for 1949.  In looking him up, I discovered the site (web and blog) of one Richard J. Geib.
Although an openly avowed Republican, Richard demonstrates a remarkable (for Republicans) ability to think, reason and write.  —  Just kidding Rich!! —
In all seriousness, this is one heavy dude.  I don’t know him (yet); I’ve not emailed him or contacted him (yet); but everyone really needs to go look at his site!!  I’ve added his site link to my Faith, Family and Friends category because anyone who reads and thinks this much (and writes this well) is a soul-brother of mine in the time-space continuum.
Live long and prosper, bro!
