In choosing the name for my first blog, I wanted a something that would describe a part of me. How important is status in our lives? How many of us truly analyze our motivations and actions to determine why we are the way we are? Can we see ourselves for who we really are? And just as importantly, can we see others for who they are? To a certain degree, happiness in life is about managing expectation and perspective. Does a name make a difference? I used to think not, but now I think that the name can influence our perceptions for better or for worse. Labels are focal points and even if they have little value beyond drawing our attention, that power alone can be significant.
I want to explore a variety of subjects that make life worth living. Like most people, my interests are varied and it can be surprising how paths can converge over time. Everything is related. Truth is eternal and unalterable, only our means of perception and application change over time. I hope you will join me as we seek better understanding and marvel at the truths that surround us.
