Shaping Our Thoughts

Shaping Our Thoughts (Audio) I’m not sure why my mind keeps returning to the trough of thinking about our thoughts, but I emailed myself a thought while away from my computer so I could think it through this morning. Some years back our son was doing pottery in an art class back in his high…

Polish Your Thoughts

Polish Your Thoughts (Audio) The pace of life sped up when Samuel Morse invented Morse Code and established the first commercial telegraph. No longer did we wait for the speedy Pony Express, Stage Coach, Train or Ship to get a letter from zone to zone, one could now send a digitized message more quickly than…

Excuse Me, It’s My Bias

Excuse Me, It’s My Bias: (Audio) One dictionary declares Bias as a prejudice inclination, and another one says it’s “an inclination of temperament or outlook…a personal and sometimes unreasoned judgment.” Another one says it might indicate a prejudice that is unfair to someone, and Wikipedia says it’s “one-sided, lacking a neutral viewpoint, or not having…

What Are Thoughts?

What Are Thoughts? (Audio) In my travels, I have been to parts of the world where the internet is not readily accessible unless you’re area resident and pay for the privilege.

Back Burner Time

Back Burner Time! (Audio) What do you write when your plate is full of things to say, and your mind will not cooperate on a single topic? That’s my problem this morning. My plate is full. There’s much to get accomplished. My mind is replete with jumbled and cross-connected thoughts. There’s no focus, nor power…

Searching Thoughts

Searching Thoughts: (Audio) I searched, and I searched, but I couldn’t find…. Hmmm… sounds like the lyrics to a song I know! But I did. I searched my heart and could not find that single word that describes my thoughts for the day. You can watch the disaster from afar, and there’s absolutely nothing to…

Living in my Brain

Living in my Brain: (Audio) My wife asked what I was doing…the other day…I was just sitting and thinking. Deeply. A lot of thoughts were being discovered, opened, analyzed and handled. Avenues of thought were chosen, and then rapidly discarded. New ways of looking and thinking were considered… Wait. Wait. The other day… Back to…
