Connecting or Isolating

You clicked a few or several clicks to get here.


Are you connecting or are you isolating yourself?


You immerse yourself in content provided by others.


Should you be creating some content instead of consuming content?


The answers vary depending upon you and your purpose and what you are trying to achieve.


It is a twofold approach.  It requires us to be thoughtful, even mindful, even judicious and very careful.


Enlightenment is too close to entertainment in this age we live in.


I intend only to enlighten you.  Sometimes that enlightenment is entertaining sometimes it is not.


I try to play at it with a light hand even being mirthful at times, but usually serious.


What we are doing is serious.  Careful not to take ourselves too seriously.

The world does not need us.  We need the world.  However, the inverse is really true when you think about it.  Take enough of us out of the world and it starts to yaw and skew and then no longer resembles the world that was.


The world needs us.  Each of us.  We need some of the world but not all of the world.


I have so much to learn I’ll leave chemistry, physics and polynomials to those who love it and teach it and breathe it.


I love and teach and breathe other topics.  We all do and that versatility combined with diversity combined with each of us doing our own thing means that we form a well rounded world.


Thank you world for teaching me. 


I depend on each of you and hopefully in some way (some more than others) each of you depend on me.


As always I am here to bounce your ideas off of if you’d like.


I look forward to hearing from each and every one of you.  Let’s make our world even more fantastic.
