Monday’s Interjection

I’m going to try something new, and begin my weeks off with many of the thoughts, subplots, and devious plans that I begin my week in the midst of. I’m not sure if I’ll even do a synthesis or unpacking of them, but I thought it would be a good way to share what’s bumping around in my head that don’t quite qualify for a full length post. I’ll call them my interjections, and I encourage any feedback to anything I might say. 

These thoughts are all my own, but they’re not only mine. 

  1. I guess I’m not quite out of my season of perpetual failure. I’m not sure what the trigger is, what I am doing wrong, or if there is a lesson to be learned. I am beginning to dimiss the latter of these excuses because, well, sometimes things just dont work out, and that is the whole of it. 
  2. Self promotion, of all of the things that fit the cliché that I hate the most, seems to me to be a slippery slope. 
  3. In my little universe of “expertise”, everyone wants to lead, but few people want to lead.
  4. I am a writer, teacher, philosopher, and theologian – but I’m one in the trenches. Are the trenches a place for any of that, or are the ivory towers hidden away from the front lines the only place for freaks like me?
  5. I’ve watched the video of DeAndre Jordan dunking over Brandon Knight from last night no less than 15 times this morning. I think we’ve reached the pinacle of the sport, and we can retire it now.
  6. I’m putting together a “Sequestration” party for my wife’s birthday this weekend. I am ridiculous.
  7. The older I get, the more baseball makes sense on a metaphysical level. 
  8. Speaking of metaphysics, in case you were curious, I am a String Theory guy.
  9. I genuinely look forward to every Monday at noon, because the Noon Pacific playlist comes out each week. I have no connection to the creator or their agenda, but I love what they are doing.
  10. I’m just filling this one out because ten seems like a good rounded out number to stop at.
