My Politics

22 01 2010

I was thinking of starting a new category called Politics but that would imply that my politics are separate from my faith. They aren’t. I believe in compassion. I believe that my role in life is to do things for others first.

In my faith, these concepts are important to God, taught by Christ and nutured by the Spirit. In politics, clearly one political party is more compassionate than the other.





I could get used to this

I am on a two week “vacation” at home. Actually, it was a week long vacation that turned into two weeks due to the Mayor’s proclamation that City Hall is closed between Christmas and New Year’s and the employees are on unpaid furlough days. Funny that he waited until after the election to announce this.

Anyway, it is nice to wake up, have my coffee, read the paper, surf the web a bit, workout at the Y, read and / or watch a movie and putter around the house. I could get used to this. If only all those bills didn’t need to be paid.





Your fate

Sometimes, don’t you just wish that you knew what the hell you were put on this earth to do?





Resolution

Do I really want to improve in the fitness area? Then I should resolve to give up booze. But I do like my rasberry vodka.





Hello world!

This is my welcome to WordPress.com. It is my first post. Yippee!

The pic above of yellow light rods is from the Smithsonian’s modern art museum. I went there a couple years ago with my son, Corey, and my foster son (at the time), Ronnie. Ronnie stopped by Christmas Eve. Quite a shocker since I kicked him out for not attending school. He is doing well now, he says. Good for him.
