I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

I'm Back (at least for now)

I had  3 different people mention my blogging absence in 24 hours. So, I thought I'd test the waters again. I like this blogging thing - I like reading other blogs, so why stop?

1. Sometimes (you may have noticed) my blogs can be rants. I like a well written rant, but some of my rants were moving potentially close to some of my readers, fellow church members, or even friends. Of course I could post the random, inoffensive "what I had for lunch" kind of stuff, but that seemed silly & trite. (Not that I'm above that all the time).

Also, I got into Facebook and that cut into my internet time. I got sidetracked there and it got easy to just one line post rather than try to compose something semi-thoughtful here. Ironically, I've gotten a little tired of FB latley too.

Finally, I've been some introspection lately and my current focus isn't eligible for public consumtion, at least not yet.

So what's up with me these days? I've been doing some serious personal analysis and long term thinking. You know the "where will I be in 20 years?" kind of thinking. I'm trying to balance reality and my idealism. Been thinking about church, the bible, etc. a great deal too. Maybe I'll blog about that ... one day.

Oops. i confess.I was one of those who asked about the blogging, but I couldn't help it. I really enjoy reading the commentary here.
It's good though, that your being introspective. God does not want us to be complacent. Our faith is an active, daily walk the the Savior.

Yo man - good to see ya back - couple thoughts:

First - WAIT A SECOND was that "silly & trite" comment about what I had for lunch a shot at my most recent post about a Subway visit?? ha ha ha just messing

Second - "where will I be in 20 years" - come on man face reality - let's say it all together now "A - NURSING - HOME!" ha ha ha ha or to be more politically correct "a retirement lifestyle community" ha ha ha

Hope you and the fam are doing well brotha!
