A writer who writes recreationally finds most of the material from the day to day events that rekindle thoughts that come from who knows where.   There are times when the brain is flooded with nonsense syllables that do not fit together and definitely do not have a plot.  Usually the writer will write this mumbo-jumbo and toss it into the trash can.  However there is a topic association that allows the reader to perceive the words and gary's blog picturesentences from his/her own set of experiences while adding meaning to the thoughts of the writer.  So it is with this writing, an attempt to empty closets of the mind.  For you the reader, thank you for joining in this exercise.  You will have to stay with me as we ramble.   There are no ‘wrong’ perceptions, they belong to you.  It can be fun if you read each sentence with your mind in ‘neutral. ‘Vicarious ‘experiences are encouraged.  I challenge you to sit with someone and read each of the following and have an open discussion concerning the comments before proceeding.    Here we go…………………. 

“He has heart”, “his heart is not in it”  “my heart is broken,” “my heart has a rapid pace,”  “is the heart and the soul the same?”  Interpret each of these comments,  And you say………….. 

“Yesterday when life was young, there were so many songs to be sung…….”. And you say………….. 

The largest battle is not in Afghanistan, Iraq, or Chicago but in every city and country  in the world, an unseen battle rages for the minds of the youth and dominion over God’s creation and the souls of people……….”  Do you agree, explain your answer. 

“The common view has become a failure………….”Take a philosophical approach to this one.

“Socrates, the ecclesiastical historiographer, reports a story of one Pambo, a plain, ignorant man, who came to a learned man, and desired him to teach him some psalm or other. He began to read unto him the Thirty-ninth Psalm, “I said, I will take heed to my ways that I sin not with my tongue. Having passed this first verse, Pambo shut the book, and took his leave, saying that he would go learn that point first. When he had absented himself for the space of some months, he was demanded by his reader when he would go forward. He answered, that he had not yet learned his old lesson; and he gave the very same answer to one that asked the same question,  forty-nine years after……..” Before responding read the statement again………now you are ready.   Explain and defend your answer.

Before going any further go back and read the opening paragraph of this blog and place your thoughts into the context as presented.

You the reader are saying I have too much time on my hands, …….. O’ yes my friend I love retirement.  A hot cup of tea and the presence of friends  would warm my heart. I would love to hear what your ramblins were to the thoughts presented.
