Ever Learning

“The more one learns, the more he understands his ignorance. I am simply an ignorant man, trying to lessen his ignorance.”

-Louis L’Amour, To The Far Blue Mountains

Horsing Around The ‘Hood

I run my hand down the length of this horse’s nose, from his bangs to his upper lip, and he breaks into a smile every time. So I took a picture.

He’s not my horse. I don’t have any horses of my own. He lives near me, though. He’s a good NEIGH-bour.

What does PDF stand for?

In case you never knew, or once knew but forgot, PDF stands for “portable document format”, and it has been around since 1993 when Adobe Systems created it.

Maybe you already knew that, but I forgot myself and had to look it up. It’s kind of like etymology. I enjoy knowing where words come from, and that goes for abbreviations, too.

Have a beautiful day, and if you can’t, I hope you find a small smack of beauty somewhere to make it tolerable.

Former Friends

Even the people you think are friends can sometimes really be enemies. Such hatred aimed my way by those I thought I knew is shocking, but all the more does it push me to lean on the Lord Jesus Christ as the One who will never leave me nor forsake me.

Reading Is Escape

Quote

“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real.”

Nora Ephron

I receive the Quote Of The Day from Goodreads and that was one of them. This is one of the few emails to which I subscribe. They are short and often inspirational for me as a writer.

Nikola Tesla – He’s So Underrated

I happen to think Nikola Tesla is cool. Yeah. What I know of him is cool. I would have loved to have had him come hang out in my kitchen and eat warm pie with me. I wonder if he had a Serbian accent, like my dad. I bet he had a crazy sense of humour, too, but this is all conjecture so make what you will of it.

This link about Tesla caught my eye today and made me smile:

(Edited to say: Oh, the shame! I had spelled Nikola wrong. Corrected now. I do know better. It’s early.)
