I’ve decided, with nudging to write a blog.  It will reflect a particular set of biases, mine.  It’s not an advise blog.  It’s more, the world according to me.  I don’t really know what I’m doing.  I’m OK with that.  But I am interested to see what comes up.  I’ve written before and have been ruminating about many things with the thought of writing again.  This could be a vehicle for stringing pearls into something wearable in the psyche.
If not, no matter.  I believe in a comedic ethos.
A comedic ethos is one in which expectations are down sized. There is a recognition that a lot of life is about walking around bumping into things.  That bumping into process then provides an opportunity for learning while having a few laughs along the way.  A tragic ethos, on the other hand, is one in which expectations are very high, goals lofty and a lot of people are dead at the end of the play.  That’s my take on Joe Meeker’s book, The Comedy of Survival.
Take the current military foray into the "cradle of civilization"….tragic or comedic??
