You know that sinking feeling you get just as you hear your dog’s stomach lurch, and you realize you’re too far away to grab him and throw him off of the carpet onto the hardwood? Yeah that.
If everyone believes that what you can’t see can kill you (cancer, carbon monoxide, radiation, etc.) why doesn’t everyone believe what you can’t see can save you?
The more that technology advances, the more that being a human is a valuable USP.
Why do so many people lead with their jobs in their Twitter bios? Are they ashamed of who they really are? Or is Twitter now Linkedin? Or do most people really think that what they do or what they’ve accomplished professionally is the best representation of who they are as a person?
I think most of the time, we tweet so we’re not alone. Flinging the filament. Hoping it catches somewhere.
I always get Lisa Marie Presley and Chastity Bono mixed up. Well, not anymore. But used to.
Over the weekend a representative from Duke Energy went on television and said their nuclear plants are foolproof. I thought this was terrifyingly arrogant. We’re just fleas on a dog, here.
Some of us write for newspapers. Some of us are on-air radio personalities. Some of us are anchors on television. But for most of us, social is the most natural form of media to communicate in.
I really thought I’d have a monkey as a pet by now. Not just me, but anyone who wanted them. Nice monkeys, not those asshole monkeys like in that bad Dustin Hoffman movie where the monkey bit the guy and started the plague.
Sadly, I have no idea how nuclear energy works, and can’t wrap my brain around the idea of radiation as it affects humans. I just want to flip the switch on and have light appear.
We need a SXSE and it needs to be in Asheville.
I don’t start off every day by hitting my knees because something’s wrong. I do it because something’s right.
Funny, but you don’t see a lot of looting in Japan. Nor are there gangs of thugs walking around terrifying people. Think about that for a second.
When you consider how fragile we are as compared with the power of nature, it’s a miracle we’ve come so far as a species. Maybe natural disasters are reminders.
I was wrong about Instagram.
I’d give up my talent to write for a talent to draw any day. Most people I know (me) don’t like to read.
We’re so vain. We think we’re actually important to the world. The world laughs at this notion – but it doesn’t matter to us. We’re also ignorant.
Beauty is fleeting. And so life is heartbreaking. A complete and utter tragedy that we endure for beautiful moments.
Beware the eyes of March.

I like this post. I totally get the non-flow of thoughts. It’s how my mind works, too. Sometimes I go to type something on Twitter and before I get it all out my brain is on to something else. You are one of the people I have in a private list so that I’m sure not miss much of what you post. I’m not always successful though. But now that you’ll be doing these types of posts, I can keep up with your brain this way. Of course, I will still want to know how long C’s grounding lasts, and who ultimately wins this particular parenting battle. I’ll miss those snapshots of your life on Twitter.But I understand the need to step away for a bit. I do it quite often. The noise gets in the way of my thinking and engaging in real life activities that are important to me. But you know, those of that care have ways of keeping up with each other. So I know you’re never far away.

JimYou continue to amaze me with your writing as so many thoughts go around in my head and I never can capture them the way that you do. It is comforting to come here and be able to read the words that jump around in my head. People have an agenda. Saying that their nuclear plants are foolproof is ridiculous. But the agenda there was to save face. Stop panic and chaos and get people to believe the message. The agenda was clear regardless of the ignorance behind it. Baffles me but then again in marketing we have an agenda and to some the message may sound ignorant but others it sounds so great that they buy.Keep em coming my dear!

Jim,I’s so glad I found you at your guest post at Spin Sucks. (and followed you to here!) What a great writer you are! I thoroughly enjoyed your meanderings (and envied the talent that could produce them). I’m following you now! Lori
