..and when the sun rises again tomorrow, we'll see how far we've come ...

... just to remind myself why I'm doing this ...

Depending on our personalities, the world can be a crowded place or a very lonely one. For those who seek comfort in numbers, there is no shortage of hangers on, but for those who avoid that circus, keeping thier own counsel can leave them feeling quite alone and disengaged from the mad place we call home. Life is a trade off and most of us choose how we live it.

For me, I'd rather work things out as best I can, using my own thoughts and feelings to sort things out. Following the crowd has never been a temptation to me, but that has its price, one that I'm totally comfortable with every day I get to stand up and be the person I aspire to be. When I sometimes lose track of who that is, I come here to remember, to reconnect and to resume my quest.

These posts are a reflection of some of what matters to me and it's a privilege to have the opportunity to collect these thoughts as they form in my head, as they prepare the way for my life, as it evolves from one day to the next. They re-inspire me when things seem to be floating about, with no particular aim or purpose, and it does happen from time to time.

So, today I had these thoughts that I think are worth writing down for the future me to look back on when I need to ...

Wally's world is ...

For me, a trip (maybe more of a stumble), into Wally's world is what I imagine a turn at finding my way through a house of mirrors to be.

Now Wally is a long-time friend of mine, going back to the time I was about 8 or 9. He finds it necessary to argue with what I characterize as "friend" so "acquaintance" is the word I'm using in its place. My first transgression into the murky realm of pranksterhood was at Wally's house. We, either he or I, dialed a random telephone number and let it ring until it was answered, only to shout something and then hang up with a bang. We were daring accomplices. While it's kindof cute, it really has nothing to do with the banter, sometimes friendly and sometimes antagonistic, we get into from time to time, particularly on John Draper's exceptionally informative blog about everything Cobourg does, is and wants to be. I've let myself get sucked into these bouts from time to time but I just don't think it's right or good form for me to argue or 'discuss' whatever Wally wants to dredge up from time to time, on that public forum. Therefore, I'll relegate my responses to Wally's challenges to this blog, my own space, and anyone who wants to, can follow along or check in from time to time, or just plain ignore us, which I think is the most likely scenario. I extend my welcome to any and all who wish to drop in, and better yet, perhaps take a deeper look into the thoughts that tumble around inside my head until I make the time to deposit them here in my space. It might to some degree explain who manfred s is to those who might be a bit curious. If you wander in, have fun, and _'read' carefully.

Now, down to business. Wally, you seem to have this burr up yer ass about me having maligned you in some way with respect to your talents. You being one who himself expects proof of such claims, bring me the proof of what you claim and let's get it out onto the table so we can see what it is that has you so vexed. If I remember correctly, I've tried to get to the bottom of this before but you didn't respond. This is your chance to get some resolution, if that's what you actually want. I, "on the other hand", think that it's more about being in the public eye, and the centre of some curious attention, but we'll see what's what, if you go down this road with me.

If you choose to continue the banter on John's blog, I'll simply respond with a note directing you to my responses here and you will do as you wish, I'm sure. But, I'll do my 'splainin, if there's any to be 'splained, right here, and only here. So, dems de rules from now on.
