Simply Complex

For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.
-H.L. Mencken, famous newspaperman and commentator.

Solutions dreamt up and thought of as pure genius may in fact be complete bunk. I'm sure you may have felt the same at some point.

Chicken Or Egg

I hope this is not a reflection of this blog.

These Are The Days

Curiousity killed the cat. It's a good thing that I like cats. Here it is for those of you who were wondering.

You've probably heard the theory (more like a statement) 'One true love for everyone'. Well, for that to be true there needs to be more to the statement/theory. It goes something like this: One true love for everyone. Either there is one true love for everyone or there isn't. Simple so far as it is just logic and counterlogic. Tricky part comes next. If there is one true love for everyone how does one find that true love? What if one is in England and the true love is in Australia? Can it still be true love if the person from England never goes to Australia to find the true love if the one even knows to go there? One may go his/her whole life without meeting the true love. (Not so tragic) But one may go his/her whole life and have already met the true love and not even realized it either at all or until it was too late and couldn't do anything about it. (a tragedy for some). It can even go as far as being with the one true love and still not knowing it.

The other theory of true love is just as mind bending.
If it's true love let them go. If it's true love they'll come back and if it's not true love they'll never come back (it wasn't meant to be). Who in their right mind wants to let go of what they love most?

It's what you do that counts, not entirely what you think. I realize that I don't know everything (if I did, Ken Jennings wouldn't be a household name). This is something that I've been able to realize since a young age and means I'll hopefully have more years to learn and figure everything out. As a true believer in God, I know that he has planned and preplanned (setting up for another topic) my life which includes the wife who He has allowed me the privilage of being married to for over eleven years. When I first saw her playing a piano at a winter camp I said that she was the one, it didn't matter she was going out with someone else. That moment came a long time before popping the question and all these years later it is still the same. We're still a pretty good team. One family of five. It couldn't be anyone else to handle raising the four of us.

I feel bad for the ones who don't have that true belief in God...

These are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives
And even if hope were shattered
I know it wouldn't matter
Cause these moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives
Oh yeah, let's make the best out of our lives
Oh yeah, let's make the best out of our lives

more, as I learn more... now I have to go clean the bathroom before my wife gets home.
