FRED’S THOUGHTS … A BLOG

ARE YOU A SUPERHERO?

March 10th, 2019|

Are you a superhero? If so thank you for your service. A better question might be: IF you were a superhero which one would you be. As an example Carla would indeed be Wonder Woman. Strong, independent, attractive, but a tad mystified by relationships. Most inherently she is about good and saving mankind (and womankind maybe especially womankind). What superhero fits you and your personality. Here are some I've met but aren't me: Superman-- much too Good for me to aspire to. Batman-- maybe, his dark side and a lack of a super power fits as does his [...]

HOPE BEGINS IN THE DARK

March 5th, 2019|

Hope begins in the dark. The person closest to me is a survivor, an achiever, and a force of nature. Carla inspires me to be a better person each day. She admits that even in the darkest moments of her life she knew she would survive and thrive. Today I am humbled to know she is my partner. I offer up some quotes from Anne Lamott an American novelist, non-fiction writer, and political activist. I think some of the quotes hint at the person Carla is. I think if you read these quotes you will see Carla. "Hope [...]

FINAL WINTER SNOWFALL

February 27th, 2019|

Final winter snowfall. In Zen the masters often write poems at or near their death. They often involve winter images coinciding with the "winter" of our life cycle. While I'm no Zen master I have one penned for my own demise, Carla has a copy and there is one in the center drawer of my office desk. Thankfully, I don't have to share that one just yet. Still, for one creature I love the time is coming. The dog I've had since a puppy will be gone soon. He is big and fierce looking so he was named [...]

CALL ME LOW CLASS OR CLASSICAL

February 18th, 2019|

Call me low class or classical. I'm not high class, anyone who knows me will confirm this. Still, am I low class? A few nights ago I went to downtown Phoenix with Carla for a nice dinner at Blue Hound Kitchen on Jefferson, and then to the ballet at Phoenix Symphony Hall. Yes I wore a nice double breasted jacket, which is a stunner for those who see me regularly. Carla was lovely in a black dress and fur rimmed cape. I was definitely out classed as looks go, but I'm used to that. I'd like to say [...]

NO POLITICAL SOLUTION TODAY?

February 7th, 2019|

No political solution today? Political maneuvers and government got you on the down side or even angry? Is this a unique time? Perhaps we are more than our political views. Let me try some song lyrics from an album released in 1981 by The Police. Sting actually sung the lyrics which also has a snappy ring to it. Stinging by the Police; consider our problems real (and perceived) about the "real" Po-Po-Police today-- can you say "Hands Up". Now with the song, Spirits in the Material World. "There is no political solution To our troubled evolution Have no [...]

DIVIDED HOUSE UNIFIED HOUSE – POLITICS

January 28th, 2019|

Divided house unified house - politics. So you think this post is a solution to US political turmoil? Well maybe it is (or not). I was wondering how often (and successfully) do Republicans cohabitate/ marry Democrats. I wonder why I was wondering that? Go figure. So I asked my trusty computer and came up with an article by Washington Post journalist Ana Swanson from July 2016. The computer also tells me she now works at the New York Times. Let's hear part of what she said. "The interesting thing that happens when a Republican marries a Democrat The [...]
