Having a blog is a good thing to have if you want to write but sadly this blog has been neglected. I do apologize for that, especially to those who subscribe. First of all, thank you for that and I do hope your day is going well. Of course if you are online reading blogs, you must be having a good day. =)
What do I write about? I guess this is a good a place as any to make mention that my wife and I have welcomed our fifth child into the World. Kenneth Richard by far was our biggest baby and (somewhat sadly) he is our last child we will bring into the world.
At 13 pounds and 1 ounce he was a big baby!! Four ounces off of the record at the hospital in fact and a birth that I will never forget. I have been thinking of writing a book so I might just hold that story to my chest for a little bit or I might just go ahead and write about it here.
Regardless, his birth was a memorable one and I am happy to say that he and his Mom are doing great. The family continues to grow both in the literal sense (they will eat me out of house and home! LOL) and the figurative sense. My oldest is at the age where the work force is something I have been preparing him for. For his 19th birthday I found a rather practical gift for him. His own thermos and a lunchbag. LOL
So the family is good. I have written something about that but what else is there?
I guess I could mention a great discussion I took part in on facebook but that can of worms is better left in Jenna’s thread. The gist of it being that Governance (ie the US federal government) is what every politician wants you to believe they are there for but the reality is that once elected, politicians become “seat preservers” rather than elected officials who represent the populace.
I found it interesting that education is what helped get them into power and then they realize that education is what will get them out of power too so what do they do? Underfund education? Yeah I’ll leave that nugget with you to ponder. =)
I guess if I could write a book, there are a few topics I could choose from. Parenting is an easy one as my wife and I am raising five boys. That can easily be a book not only about parenting but marriage as well but do I really want to put my family out there like that? It’s just a question I will have to answer for myself.
I could write a book about governance and politics, more specifically First Nations Governance but I’m afraid that it would get lost in (I hate using this word but it is apt) “Indian politics”. Politics is a word that I do not mind using but the other word is not only a misnomer for me but a negative connotation used to keep people under the thumb of “civilization” or even worse, the conquerors.
It is the year 2014, let’s face it people. European Contact is now a part of History, let’s leave it there and learn from it rather than perpetuating the stereotypes and struggles of First Nations Peoples.
Yeah, there’s a book right there isn’t it? Hmm…
I guess I could write about where we as a People (all encompassing, humanity) are today with regards to the impact of the internet and what it means to Society today and what it could mean down the road but that is something I would have to do a lot of research on for it to have any merit.
I don’t know if I want to be a researcher as my student days are somewhat behind me but it goes without saying that I do want to write. I wonder if a book about videogames from 8-bit to high definition 3D graphics wold fly? I’m sure I could write a few things about the industry today but like all things that I want to write about, where do I start and can I stick to the topic? Quiet you. =)
This is a good a start as any and I guess I will ask this question of the wordpress community…
Wordress community, do we own what we write in our blogs or does that belong to wordpress?
I ask that because with so many blogs posts, I might have already written a book and just aren’t aware of it.
So I want to write and I have. You all have a great day.
As always, yours to wear and share: =)
