Oh, Time

Time, it’s not on our side.  With all the issues like France’s restricting checking emails after 6 p.m., moving Passover because American Jews are too busy, and the concept of Black Friday blanketing Thanksgiving and bumping the holiday off the calendars. Are we Stateswomen and Statesmen working too much? Paying attention to our technology? Essentially ignoring ourselves…

Snark Tuesdays

Who are you? Really… Who are you? Who do you see yourself as?  What do you your friends see you as? What do you see yourself as socially?  What does society see you as? What aspects, traits allows you to fit into certain characters? Do you have the ability to be independent?  Can you venture into…

The Art of a Fool

The Infinite Abyss(es) is not going away.  It does need a makeover, however.  There will be less frequent posts.  The posts, however, will be longer pieces, more essays essentially, and better quality. The post that preceded this was not good enough as many of the posts are due to my being a picky little shit.  The post…
