I’ve been reading some of the recent postings, such as Time For General Thinking, Shaving Thoughts, Compared-Is yours Boring, Why, Philosophical Briefs and others. Brings to mind reflections of my own life and life-style. Along with the pondering here and in conjunction with a little book I am reading at the present time, “Home Town Tales” by some gent named Phillip Gulley, I find I have something of a disconnect in my own thinking. I want to do good but when I try there is a disconnect and it turns out bad. It runs through my boyhood, through tough adulthood, and later life. I think maybe I wished I could have turned out more like this gent, Phillip Gulley. He says he is a storyteller and he is. I might also point our he is a Quaker Minister and I expect that is good for the Quakers, but what I like about reading his book is how he takes ordinary situations and and points out how we can all do better without being preachy. He makes me wish I had been better, had done better in life, had not had this disconnect that makes me wish I had taken the other road.
