Creating Experience – The Magic of Words

One of the many things that separates humankind from any other animal species is the ability to communicate complex ideas and concepts using spoken and written language. Many species communicate using varied sounds and facial expressions, but humans have taken that communication to an entirely different level. Our tendency to document our daily lives andContinue reading “Creating Experience – The Magic of Words”

Let’s Flip to Feminism!

There is a massive shift occurring across the United States. Women are taking power and putting themselves in positions of authority that were historically reserved for men. If a female democratic candidate were running for office this year, she would win without a fight, and if Biden was a little bustier he wouldn’t even needContinue reading “Let’s Flip to Feminism!”

Pollution… Environmental, Noise, and Visual – A Call to Consideration

In the early 1990s, my generation could be found sitting in elementary school classrooms with wide eyes and open minds listening to our teachers discuss the problems of drug abuse, HIV and cancer and the lack of cures, acid rain, recycling and general pollution. Global warming had not yet become a hot topic, and someContinue reading “Pollution… Environmental, Noise, and Visual – A Call to Consideration”

Coronavirus Never Goes On Vacation…

California, United States. Less than one percent of the American population has been tested positive for a virus that has been labeled by some as the deadliest disease we’ve ever seen.

The Future is Dead and the Economy is Holding a Smoking Gun

The future isn’t dead. However, there are many aspects of present day society that either seem precarious or altogether unstable if not handled properly as we progress through the upcoming US presidential election and beyond. Nothing in life is ever certain, and there aren’t many aspects of nature that humanity can really control… At leastContinue reading “The Future is Dead and the Economy is Holding a Smoking Gun”

Why is Society Regressing in the Civil Rights Movement? Racism should be dead in 2020.

Activism, whether it’s political, social or in support of reform of anything else, is the start of a conflict. In a relationship, does a confrontational attitude calm the situation or increase the tension? Being right or wrong rarely matters when emotions are involved. In the United States, social reform and civil rights have been aContinue reading “Why is Society Regressing in the Civil Rights Movement? Racism should be dead in 2020.”

Whether you think Trump should have or could have prevented the shortage and so manyContinue reading “Homemade and Washable COVID-19 Masks… Government Approved”

From Fear to Fondness

Based on a true story about kindness in a darkened world I had only been back in San Diego for a few days. The last time I was in the city, I camped with my son in a quiet business park about a dozen miles east of San Diego proper. No problems, just a fewContinue reading “From Fear to Fondness”

Borderless

One of the biggest and most controversial topics of discussion during the last US presidential election was on Donald Trump’s promise to build a wall between Mexico and the United States in order to keep illegal immigration and smuggling to a minimum. As a resident of California, this was very strange to me. When makingContinue reading “Borderless”
