I vaguely remember reading a quote by Abraham Lincoln that said words to the effect “folks tend to do pretty much what they want to”. I have since not been able to find the quote, so I don’t know whether he said it or not. I have done what people often do and interpreted it the way I wanted. I believe people do what their inner self wants to do whether their thinking mind knows it or not.
When I started this blog, I had several ideas about what I wanted to write about, but apparently my inner self thought otherwise. I was going to write a cookbook. Probably not going to happen. I was going to write about nutrition, fitness, and health. Probably not going to happen. What is happening is I am thinking more about philosophy, politics, the ethics of science, and the equality of humans and how we are all on this world together and we need to create a kinder, gentler, more enlightened world civilization with everyone participating. This is both harder and easier to write about than I thought it would be. When I first started, I determined I wouldn’t try to monetize my writings because that would give me the freedom to write what I wanted. I am sticking with that, but I am looking into ways to increase my circulation as a secondary function to the writing. What good does it do to write things you believe if nobody reads it? I am still going to throw in the occasional off topic post, but that will be the exception and not the rule.
In keeping with the heading on my home page, I don’t expect you to agree with everything I say, but I do hope it causes you to think. There will be more topics touched upon under this broad umbrella. I don’t believe anything is off limits. If there is anything you would like me to address in a post, just message me and I will give it some thought. Just be aware, the post may not be exactly what you expect, but I will try to keep it consistent with the philosophy of this blog as it evolves.
