Introducing a commentary commentary


August 2, 2016
Well, if truth be told
Time to be bold and force myself to admit that "A Commentary" was taken.  What was I thinking?  How would a blog host service, the pre-eminent one created by GOOGLE, not have a blog called "A Commentary".

Yuck, dumbness 101
So, stuck in the middle between my more businessy and social media brainfart resides on my optioneerJM.blogspot.ca .... which in the past few months has been inkling my inklings:: why would GOOGLE swap out my blog from a .com to a .ca?  

Sneaky devils
Just when I wasn't looking, too preoccupied by writing, or blogging as they say, I hadn't noticed that my blog was not set up as a .com one.  Really not a smart move.  Maybe there was no choice.  

Gathered intelligence
Even back then, wasn't as informative as it is now.  You can glide an ad in front of the exact demographic you pre-select defined by online habits (reading, what you look at, what you search for, what you write, what you write about, what you blog, who are your followers, where do your followers come from, how trusting are your followers now they've gotten to know you?

Richter Scale
If you hit the bar and lift it high above, these piranhas of paranoia demonstrate that there is nothing to fear, but fear itself (heard it at one of the American Nomination Conventions but can't remember who the quote should be attributed to.  The nomads of information gathering and sharing start to draw in like a magnet to those that have a high trust worthiness.  

Integrity & Honesty
Can be examined, dissected (thank you GOOGLE for helping me spell dissected when there are so many different ways you can spell it the wrong way).  A person who is above reproof in actions, activity, and influence (likelihood to click).



Likelihood to be Liked
Is a phenomena to be understood and uphold.  It doesn't mean never ever NOT controversial, yet often more intellectual.  Like a lioness protecting her young, she can stand up and be heard the very few times she'd roar.  

Roar rarely
Is a true craft that so many grasp.  You are NOT on an imaginary soapbox and people do NOT care about what you are ranting about, usually, typically.  The true grind is when it is so unbelievable, to be human you cannot but summon rage at the extreme, disappointment would be too dull.  

There is room
For new voices, new vision to soar.  Above the "cloud" free from the "web" of deceit, corruption, exploitation, ruination that so many fall under or into a deep well, or catch themselves midway during the free fall.

Champion
Mentor talent, create fame, share brilliance, recognize excellence in others for all the right reasons, not self-serving motivated.  Be a cheerleader, with a vibrant personality that becomes known to be positive, inspiring, uplifting and optimistic.  Held dearly the belief that a gift of art, music, beauty, entertainment, literature, writing can rise and be known for exuding the greatest appreciation of the talent by others.



Curation
By curating and sharing magnificent art, photography, writings, teachings, ambassadors to making the world a better place, more optimistic, peaceful.  

Beliefs
Those are the beliefs that should unfold.  Not the tyranny of attempting to trick or promote radicalness, violence, unwholesomeness, evil or greed (which equals EGO in my opinion).

Vision
The capacity and habit of looking forward more than backwards.  Who can latch on to something that could be the start of a big curve (remember when I wrote about how Adult Coloring books were going to bust open the rafters?)

Dream
Your dreams with your goals nestled safely within.  Make yourself actionable.  Do what you say you will do.

Commitment
Share the #bestofeverything as a voice of the populace not what the media wants to shape what it is the populace wants.

Triumph over struggle

This blog was originally written earlier today (Saturday, March 4, 2017) on my optioneerJM blog on Word Press ~ where I find an atmosphere of support and celebration of original writing among those who write themselves.  It is the highest compliment any fledgling writer can have.Like most of us at the tail end of Baby Boomers while being drowned out by Millennials, we're trying to get ahead.  Achieve success, notoriety or acclaim.  Subsidize our career choices with our inner voices.  To help others, to help ourselves.  To exhaust our demons by writing and exhuming scars that life has left on our brains.Confidence or competenceA struggling battle between what we want to express and be appreciated for our words.  So many of us write to right the struggles we have fought, the wars we have lost, the lessons we have learned.Gratitude: pitiful compensationWe appreciate the acknowledgement by others who are in chained to the common goal:  of being paid for our words.  What a steep mounta…

Mindfulness mindset

Mindfulness mindset

The following post was originally shared on  JMgallery where I curate art, photography, images that speak to me.  Today, these depictions focus on mindfulness which is an art within itself.  The above captures my positive mindset and peaceful focus to allow me to become present in the NOW.  To be appreciative of the WOW!  Yes the quote and the image harmoniously flowed together to create a positive vibe sent out to the universe.  I can't do anything constructive about my woes at the moment so you allow it to drift away.  Efficiently filed to be handled effectively, like you usually do.  



The art of mindfulness
Practicing the art of mindfulness is a lot harder than it sounds.  In principle, you are meant to focus on this minute, this second.  Building awareness of all things, people, events happening around you in the moment for the moment.  Discipline and meditation are definitely helpful to reach this art of being at peace with oneself in the universe.  Forgivin…

Testing ... reDEFINING

Postings on the Edge
a twist of words as reference to Postcards from the Edge.  

Kindred spirits
join the journey.  But first, you need to begin with me
firstly by watching "Bright Lights" with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds  Take in the poignant moment when Carrie visits her dying father, Eddie Fisher, with more forgiveness than any one I've ever known.

Compassionate creatures 
enveloped from the vessels of "Singing in the Rain" fame, Debbie Reynolds, and her daughter "Princess Leia" Carrie Fisher who wrote "Postcards from the Edge" starring Shirley McClain and young upstart Merle Streep.  I watched this  this afternoon after taking the HUNKster's suggestion of HBO's "Bright Lights" last night when we returned home after sharing a hearty dinner with great friends.  

Quality overpowers time every time
Suggesting quality is not defined by length
of time spent together, but in the value and peaceful-ness with whom we share gain.
