   Experiencing Change. . .  Recently, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! wrote a post about lost skills.   She covered more than a few with her excellent list.  As sad and unfortunate as it was, the points she made were right on the money in my ophion.  The last one mentioned on her list was in evi...
 Walking After RunningSome Thoughts on Movement           Admittedly, I don’t remember the exact moment.  Despite my lack of recall, I discovered walking was a better and more efficient way of traveling versus crawling.  Eventually, that initial tottering to and fro led to running.   Scurrying ar...
 As September Arrives. . .           The arrival of any month prompts many thoughts. September is not alone in that.  The next 30 days has its share of events for many of us. Maybe more than some other times, but that’s another story. Each will be told in a unique way.  Today, September first, th...
 History Plays a Part. . .           There’s history.  Likely, each of us recognize things happen. And don’t happen.  The reasons "why" they occur is subject to interpretation. Speculation, as well.  The past can be recalled in many ways.  Solving or attempting to make sense of such stories may i...
 As August Approaches. . .  We each have our own story.  Here on ActiveRain, in the real world and elsewhere we travel throughout life.  As the end of month draws closer, there is much to reflect.   Again. There is also a lot to anticipate in August.  On that subject, I think of our canine friend...
 The More I Learn,It SeemsThe Less I Know. . .           I have made numerous journeys around the sun. Gaining perspective, I experience lots of opportunities.  Considering possibilities beyond initial impressions continue to be an addition to life's equation.  Consequences come along the way. Th...
  Penultimate Pondering. . .  As May draws closer to its end, I have collected many thoughts over the month. Actually, it's quite the accumulation.  Like memories, some are recalled more clearly than others.  Purposefulness of being and staying aware remain part of this ongoing process.  Traversi...
  FoolhardinessAs We Finish The Fourth Month. . .  Foolishness and all kinds of stuff related to the subject may be closely aligned with April.  And not only on the first but whenever the month is the topic.   Maybe it’s an easy target.   Perhaps, there is a bigger reason. Now that we have reache...
  Faking Artificial IntelligenceRandomness Really Reigns. . .  The recent rain is taking a bit of a respite in my SoCal neighborhood so my mind wanders. It will likely wind its way to wondering. Does weather impact what's storming in my mind? And what about questions related to whether? Beyond co...
 Anything, AnywhereAnd All At Once. . .   This post title is not-so-loosely inspired by the name of the 2022 movie Everything Everywhere All At Once.  But this has nothing to do with that or any film.  Although it won much acclaim and received many awards, I didn’t see it.   While the preview did...
