"Notes" #63

Confrontation and its Relationship to "Winning".

Arguments and fights often occur because "someone is trying to win". (Oh, have I said that before?) One or both partners are interested in having their point of view accepted as the one that is "correct". As a result, instead of listening to what is being shared, the person is rehearsing their response, which inflames what is already a problematic mode of communication. Winning becomes the goal; respecting the other person's perspective is no longer important.

"Notes" #62

"Happy New Year!" I personally don't feel all that optimistic about 2022; there are just too many people still exerting their "right" to be stupid and not vaccinating and so are keeping the whole COVID thing going. Enough of that downer stuff. I just gave my head a good shake (or was it the scotch I just had a shot of). Whatever, I'm my old positive self again and hope you are as well.

Letter to Our Provincial Government           (written July, 2021)

In the middle of a world pandemic, and while we're presently under the most stringent lockdown our democratic country has ever seen...

You decide to not give our nurses a contract, which they have been without for four years, and put them in a legal strike position.

"Will You Tell the Truth, the Whole Truth..."
I think it is time to fess up! In "Notes" #56 I strongly hinted that I was about to retire when I said, "...tomorrow, my first day of retirement". Well, I didn't retire!

After 2 1/2 months off this past summer with much golf being played, reading a lot, barbecuing, long walks, playing with the grandchildren, and starting up my music again, I began to think about those long winter days and changed my mind. Technically I retired, just not all the time!
