Often, I think, too many words are spoken and too little said of any lasting meaning or value. As a result, when the shouting is over, not all that should be considered has been said. That is my premise for this blog.
Mine is not meant to be “the last word”, but if it prompts more thoughtful reflection I will deem the effort a success.
I read recently that if something won’t matter in five years, it may not deserve five minutes of worry now. I suspect there is an element of truth there, at least in the sense that we should think more deeply and with a more lasting perspective than Twitter often prompts. This blog, like my interests, will touch on a range of topics and I hope some will interest you. Much that relates to politics falls into the short-term concern category, and I plan to leave most of those discussions to others. I, at least, need a haven from that world.
When my daughter was about four, her elder brother would sometimes make up games to play, much like “Calvin Ball”, if you remember Bill Watterson’s comic. On one occasion, as he was explaining the rules, she asked, “Is this a winning game?”
I’ll leave you with that question for now. When all is said, is life meant to be won or should it mean something more?
Check back from time to time and let others know if WhenAllIsSaid speaks to you.
