Some Things I Think I Think....

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I cannot accept;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

I plan to use this page to share some of my thoughts, some of my experiences, and some of my somewhat unique perspective on different topics that come to mind. I am not looking to compose perfect, beautiful literature here so please be tolerant. Rather, the goal is to try to express some very difficult feelings and thoughts so I will do the best I can to put them into words.  You may consider some of it to be profound.  It may provides insight into things in a way you haven't considered before.  On the other hand, you may consider it to be completely whacked.  No matter.  I invite you to read in the same spirit with which I share it, as the musing of someone who has had way too much time and opportunity to consider things that most people seem to take for granted.
