Never judge a book by its cover…

Christopher Barna Bruno Mars-when I was your man acoustic cover – YouTube.

Don’t be quick to pass judgement.

I remember seeing this video’s screenshot before I watched the actual video, and I already had passed judgement. Then I listened to them.


We often preach about not judging someone by how they look, but we all still do it. We seemed to be conditioned like our friend Pavlov the dog. Take a second or two and reserve your thoughts until you meet, speak and converse with that fellow human being. We often fear what is unfamiliar.

Different ≠ bad.


Same-sex marriage. Equality across a nation today. My thoughts

A day cemented in the history books my friends. The chatter is loud out there in social media. A chatter that can be viewed as a bit of shouting from both sides of this virtual “wall” that has been officially torn down.

“Equal dignity in the eyes of the law”

I had a lot to say about this topic. I really did. I wanted to perseverate on my personal feelings, my history in the military, my non-religious up-bringing and how many ‘gay’ people I know, and how many ‘gay’ people I’ve known in my short time on this earth to be such genuine souls.

But I’ve decided to keep in short and simple. Here’s the one thought I have on the equality of marriage.

How would have my life been for the past ten years, had I been told, by the law, that I could not marry my best friend, I could marry my soul mate? That in the eyes of the law, you’re love is not recognized.

The answer is quite simple. I would have a very different life.

And now those who have had to lead that ‘different’ life, get a chance to express themselves properly in the eyes of the law.

Game. Set. Match my friends.

It’s really that simple. Love is universal. Don’t make it any more complicated than it has to be. Hate begets hate, don’t forget that.


So… A recurrent thought …


Ever have an idea in your head that you just can’t let go of? Just won’t leave your brain. Keeps knocking on your subconscious.  Keeps buzzing around your skull like that mosquito in the bedroom.

I’m having one of those ideas. It’s an idea I’ve had for a while. An idea that still seems a bit crazy to me, but I just can’t let go of it.

Stay tuned folks. As if I don’t already have enough on my plate. I think I might be trying something new. (Is that vague enough for ya… don’t ya hate those type of posts?)

Not unless someone can tell me how to get rid of this damn mosquito in my head?
