To My Fellow-Citizens of the United States of America:
I PUT the following work under your protection. It contains my opinions upon Religion. You will do me the justice to remember, that I have always strenuously supported the Right of every Man to his own opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies to another this right, makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.
The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is Reason. I have never used any other, and I trust I never shall.
Your affectionate friend and fellow-citizen,
Luxembourg, 8th Pluviose,
Second Year of the French Republic, one and indivisible.
January 27, O. S. 1794.
Thomas Paine’s Amazing Story – And Thoughts on a Society and the problem with Religion.
A year passes, 2012 has come to a close, and I start recognizing there is much that can and should be done in this New Year. As I am also coming on my second year at Cabrillo it would also make sense to explore what direction I should go into the years to come for completing the education. This is the objective for the year to come to move forward in all things in this life. To experience a world outside of a comfort zone – outside of the box.
In the late hours trying to be awake enough on something like three hours of sleep in the last couple of days, not to mention the other associated annoyances. Why is it in these late hours sometimes I tend to feel the most frustration?
These late hours on three hours of sleep and way to much coffee throughout the day, a headache makes itself known by beginning to hurt on the right side. Frustration seems to becoming closer to the surface. SMALL THINGS SEEM TO BECOME BIG THINGS. An ant hill becomes a hill and an eventual Mountain. Just as so many things seem to go when tired or just previously stressed to a point where a break or an explosion tends to follow.
Cognitive impairment, which includes memory, perception, problem-solving, conceptualisation and attention deficits. This may result from a range of conditions such as mental retardation, autism, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and old age. Learning difficulties can also affect a variety of memory, perception, problem-solving and conceptualisation skills. Learning difficulties include reading problems such as dyslexia, computational, reasoning and organisational deficits and non-verbal learning disorders. These are sometimes also associated with Attention Deficit Disorder and Hyperactivity.
Reaching a larger audience is important when developing a site, when I stumbled across this particular one I was delightfully surprised and welcomed the idea that there are those who are taking the time to consider all people not just some people. Those with disabilities certainly have special needs, and what the article mentioned above goes into presents many solid solutions to some of the best techniques in order to do that, to reach a wider audience in the community based ideal such as the Internet is.
Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today. ~James Dean
Putting Focus on the Future is often the most difficult step yet also the most necessary of the steps that need to be taken in order to make the quality decision to make that change to progress through the challenges and to make each day, each moment count by making the most of each. In doing that you make the first steps in the new direction.To do that is often easier said then done, but it can be done and should be a constant in making a difference a decision that must really be made in order to step up to the plate, to make the most of your efforts and making the progress that is important through the tough times that are often inevitable in the day by day existence. The factor that is important to be considered, in making a definitive choice to make the necessary change in order to progress through the challenges of this life. To make a quality decision, with the clear idea of living life fully that is more important then most things. Following the idea, that if you never truly live, and you just let your life pass you by you will miss so much. You only have one opportunity to make the most of this moment and the next and to make a change now to improve the future in leading by example. We as human beings always learn by observing example the factor that aligns with such possibilities. The point being the only way to make a change, is to starting changing what you do to offer a better example, to those who have yet to explore what is beyond the walls of the sheltered existence that is childhood, only seeing their parents as the example. To change the next generation then is depending on the example the current generation sets for the children of the next generation yet to experience the world beyond this moment. They are completely dependent, on being taught what should be the future. To do that though is a long and enduring process, and is a matter of rethinking and changing the understanding of the situations by also taking the time to re-educate yourself. To Change Views – is a matter of seeing things differently, of making a slightly different choice of each matter. In re-educating yourself to understand things differently and to progress beyond them and through them by researching the possibilities that exist beyond the current scope of vision. That is a part of the full spectrum of color that is often forgotten when the focus is only on the Black and White Aspect of it. We do not live in a Mono Chromatic world, though often it seems that is what is taught to only see red or blue, black or white, to miss the full range of colors and ideas that when seen and understood opens up the eyes and the mind the see more of the existence, more of the story. To stretch the mind just a bit, in helping to realize there is more to learn, and more to offer as an example of the importance of living life fully.
Hours pass and a new day begins. The dreams from the night before, only of floor plans of moving my body to see another perspective and awakening to only my eyes hurting as if no sleep was had even if in bed by 2a and awakening once at an odd hour and then laying back down until 1015 the next morning. Such simplicity in dreams say little about further understanding of the self, my real being. Other dreams seemed to offer more clues that may have been missing in the simplicity of last nights session. Dreams have a tendency to not so much be disrupted, as only paused momentarily to continue at a later time in another session to keep the story flowing there is the importance of logging, to log is to remind the self to recall what may come in those experiences in the subconscious verse.

Teach your children well. When kids grow up understanding the worth of the lives of all animals, they are likely to take those values into adulthood and pass them on to their own children.

A Selection of Photos of our Pets – Using a Motorola L7 Slvr, very basic version of pictures of Dogs, Cats and a Couple of Frogs.
If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.
~Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce
What is mentioned by Chief Seattle, holds true even today, where there is still that connection, the photos below show some of those pets who continue the connection with Earth, Who Offer Love without Condition or Expectation.
Some Fun Shots of Pets and Pictures.
Throwing all the pieces out on the table, we connect the dots to make pictures. It’s a child’s game, creating figures out what look like a random set of numbered points. We tend to visualize the network of our social graph as a series of connected points. The pictures that emerge from those connections tell a story about our lives and experiences.
Very interesting thoughts on interpretations of connecting the social world as something that defines a different perspective of the Socially Connected World.
