Emotional to Irrational – The Winning Logic of Donald Trump

Where do I start? The land of the brave, and unfortunately free to say and do absolutely whatever comes to mind. If you have been a follower of Missing / Perspective from the beginning, you know that freedom is at the top of my list of reasons that I love America.  Freedom of speech and expression is a rare gem that gives us a true advantage … Continue reading Emotional to Irrational – The Winning Logic of Donald Trump

Since the Day I Was Born ….

For me, the hardest part of watching the movie Selma was the first five minutes. It is the scene when the young girls, doing what young girls do in church, were blown up. I have thought of this scene multiple times prior to seeing the movie and just the thought of this scene was chilling, but Ava DuVernay captured it even more poignantly in the … Continue reading Since the Day I Was Born ….

Turning the Corner… Fearlessly!

One … Continue reading How Ignorant is Your Bliss (The Monday Fits)

“If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey, he’s obligated to do so” – Thomas Jefferson Since the story broke about the same-sex marriage fiasco in Alabama, my mind has been kind of in a frenzy. The story infuriates me on so many levels that I see red. I mean in 2015, the fact there were judges who were trying … Continue reading Sweet Home Alabama: The Litmus Test of America

The Monday Fits: First World Faux Pas All Around

  As the year closes, there a number of different topics that I find bubbling up in my mind. But what I find that happens all too often, are the issues that are most important, where the passion overflows are closer to “first-world problems” than pressing matters. You know the problems from living in a wealthy, industrialized nation that third worlders roll their eyes. These really … Continue reading The Monday Fits: First World Faux Pas All Around

The Monday Fits: Episode 4

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right, you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do, damned if you don’t” – Eleanor Roosevelt   The art of critiquing and judgement can be mastered by a skillful commentator who can provide insightful instruction that provides positive change in a person, group or an ideal.  However, a critique can be weak and distract … Continue reading The Monday Fits: Episode 4
