I like science fiction

I have often been asked why like science-fiction so much. The reason is simple. Unlimited possibilities…
In science-fiction anything is possible and it has nothing to do with reality. It has only been since I met my wife, Kelley, that I have watched CSI and stuff like that. Although I must admit that the writers of those shows really do an excellent job, still, what you are watching on the screen is oftentimes a sensationalized version of what could happen.
Through the magic of science-fiction, the world around us becomes a wondrous place where anything can happen and does on a frequent basis. I mean, you go to the limits of fact and then change your story into something that is not possible, but it is plausible, and it brings out an aspect of human nature.
Humanity is so interesting. Psychologically, We are flawed and our intellect competes with our motions on many levels. Combine this with Science fiction and you are limitless.

How do you celebrate Christmas? Family, friends, party, or all of the above plus some?
Around here, we do all of the above with good food. In addition, we remember that the birth of Christ is the reason for our celebrations. 
May all your celebrations this year be joyful and safe.

An unusual thought

I know this may seem somewhat untraditional and probably historically incorrect, but as my wife and I were putting up our Christmas tree, I had an amazing thought. I do not profess to be a theologian by any means.
I looked upon the height of the tree and saw many  ornaments of all different shapes, sizes, and colors and I thought about the infinite diversity of our society. Is that not like our lives and associations, especially family. People in our lives are all different some way and, no matter whether they are living or dead, they are still important. The tree of life lets many people come together to form the whole of humanity.
The top of the tree, whatever design is there, is representative of the Holy Trinity that a acts as covering, or shield, for all of us. 
'Tis the season to rejoice that we have a Father looking out for us and wishing us all the best!

I procrastinate, you procrastinate, everyone procrastinates... It is a part of Life, everyone's life, my life, and your life.
How do we defeat procrastination? To tell you the truth, I wish there was a magic pill to cure this disease of the mind, but we probably all know, there is no cure. However, you can combat it by developing our minds with commitment and veracity.
As a writer, I must deal with this on a daily basis because in this modern era when I am at the computer there are too many distractions: Facebook, Twitter, E-mail, and hundreds of other things are competing for my attention at the computer. If I'm at the house, there is also the door, the phone, outside noises like cars driving by, knocks at the door, and other things. My work is always staring me in the face. People that go to a job site and work for eight hours have the privilege of coming home.
But, back to procrastination. We All must deal with it. Write yourself notes, Focus your mind, and imitate A laser... We need to all do this on a continuing basis to achieve objectives that we want.

Baffling, huh?

Have you ever wondered how many stars are in the sky? I have. I have even tried to count them. What is our fascination with the stars? I think that is not the stars than we our concern with... It is the unknown, the mysterious, the undefinable...

Mankind has always been compelled to reason things out, or at least, the unknowable into perspective. Did you know your brain is designed to think complex terms? The simpler things in the universe seem to baffle us. If you don't believe that, think about the fact that we love magic. Magic is designed to make this simple baffling. That's all it is.
