The Reason Why

“We read because if we don’t
Our eyes will dim

We write because if we don’t
Our souls will”

The above is a quote to express why I read and write so much. Television can deaden the soul. It seems the more channels available, the less of interest there is to watch. My soul longs for more, for something stimulating, something to ponder, some “thing” to question whether to agree or disagree with in the end. So, I read.

I write when my thoughts are no longer containable in my mind. Thoughts refuse to escape through verbal expression because such cannot fully express it. So, I write.

Some read and write from an inner passion, boredom, restlessness at night, and a host of other reasons.

Why do you read? Why do you write?

How I Came to Love the King James Version of the Bible

I won’t say that I love the King James Version (KJV) Bible because I believe it is the only version of the Bible of relevance. I love it because being raised with it, reading, and learning to understand it, it has stuck with me, in my head, and in my heart. Other versions of the Bible don’t sound quite right to me, not to say they are wrong, but because the KJV is in my memory. I admit that it took quite some time for me to understand the KJV. People often say it’s too hard to understand and to that I share how I came to understand it.
Here’s my story:

What I Watch & Why – What Do You Watch & Why

What I watch and why I like it:

Bates Motel: I was a fan of the Psycho movies. I saw all five of them. The Bates Motel series does a great job providing a backstory explaining why Norman is the way he is. Bates Motel also continues to surprise me with elements, such as Norma having a brother and the nature of their relationship. Each episode keeps me waiting for the next one. Having a degree in psychology, I enjoy seeing how that factor plays itself out in the series.

The “F” Word – Friendship or not Friendship

“Friendship,” in my opinion is a word that is all too often spoken without understanding of its true meaning. Of course, the “true meaning” is open to subjective thought. My subjective thought of the “true meaning” of that word seems to carry more weight than when I hear it spoken by others. I’m not judging, please do not get me wrong and assume that.

I hear people say, “this is my friend” or “that is my friend,” but what do they really mean? Do they mean they get along sometimes? They go out and party? They have sex? You give them money when they need it? Do they mean we met at work and have lunch together every day? Do they mean someone who clicked “like” on their Facebook page, or added them on their Instagram, or followed them on Twitter? Or do they mean what “friendship” or being a “friend” means to me?
