DO we really educate people anymore beside just the basics? Our education system is now designed to get people to past a test and prepare to get a job and be a slave the rest of their lives instead of enhancing their knowledge and have them think for them selves.

Yes teaching the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic at an early age is very much still important but as a student advances we must maintain that they are given a broad education in the liberal arts.

The GREAT BOOKS OF THE WESTERN WORLD are a great place to start – however one must be prepared to think.

READING – and I don’t mean just the internet. BOOKS are the best form of educating ones self – nobody reads anymore.

To learn how to write correctly and communicate with our fellow man takes indeed an intense reading of a variety of subjects to enhanced one’s mind.

Take the time to teach your kids to read – read more yourself and expand your mind in order to try and make a difference in a world that is forever changing.

Do We Really Communicate

It is a lost skill. In a world with all this high tech communication gadgets and devices and what not; we have lost the time, morals, and etiquette to properly deal with people in a civil manner.

We simply forget how to talk to people. We use cell phones in the most inappropriate places where conversations should be a bit more discreet or just rudely displayed with no thought for the people around us.

Texting! What’s that all about? Lolbrb and all the others symbols of a not so highly evolved people who have simply complied with the masses.

What happened to a simple letter, a thank you note that is actually sincere? No – we take the easy way out and blurt out a nonsense email and feel we have accomplished some great feat.

We are so involved with keeping ourselves amused that we forgot what is really important on how to go about conveying those feelings. Our education system is so messed up we don’t even bother to teach about the proper ways to speak with each other. Too busy trying to teach people how to pass a test rather than how to have the skills it takes to convey anything with any real meaning.

Alas! The world is evolving; people are moving forward, backward and all points in between ---

What It's All About

Life and the process there of is quite a varied thing. It will lead to more questions than answers but can be an interesting road.

While impossible to get all my songs, stories and such published - as I go about finishing my first novel;  hoping to publish sometime in the next year, I was encourage to share some of my insights and thoughts on a varied of subjects that I'm sure will cause somewhat of a stir.

Thinking and writing sometimes Do not mixed well however the journey perhaps could be interesting.
