Hard to believe it’s October and time again for apple cider! Life can seem to slip by so fast. Where has it gone and have we been present to experience it? Or has it all been just a blur?
Life is a journey, and beginning today this blog will be about the journey. It has a new name — now Just Sayin’ 3.0 — a new look, and a new focus.
All my old posts are still here and available, but going forward this blog will pay less attention to politics and place more emphasis on the personal and spiritual sides of life. That’s spiritual with a small “s.” I am not a religious person, though I do believe there is more to reality than meets the eye in this physical plane we occupy on Earth.
The tagline atop my new homepage and each post reads “The journey is what brings us happiness, not the destination.” It comes from a great book, Dan Millman’s Way of the Peaceful Warrior, which has also become my all-time favorite movie. Among the first things I’ll talk about here in the new blog is Dan’s remarkable story.
On occasion I’ll still delve into politics here. I’ll try to avoid being too strident or polemical but I suppose that’s mostly for the reader to decide. My intent will always be to expand understanding and compassion, both in myself and others. Mostly I plan to confine political commentary to the other platforms I occupy, Twitter and my second blog, A Quick Thought.
I hope you’ll join me on this new phase of the journey. If you haven’t yet, you can subscribe for email notification of new posts. See the form in the sidebar.
