Am I right or am I wrong?

Am I right or am I wrong? Do you agree or disagree? Does it matter to me that you think I'm right or wrong or that you agree or disagree?

No. Not really. Since everyone has their own take on life, no one can really say that anyone is either right or wrong when it comes to those things that are no more than an opinion based on one's own experiences. This is not so regarding anything that can be measured to an established standard that one must meet.

This blog is my soap box (and I have a bull horn), my wall of graffiti (and I'm the only one with a can of spray paint) , my treasure chest of recollections (and only I have the key). My postings will allow me to state my case, express myself, explain my point of view and to document the things that I often wonder about but never fully understood. That's all. I'm not asking if I'm right or wrong. It is what it is.

I find it challenging to try to document my thoughts in such as way so as to paint an accurate rendition of them in another persons mind when they read the completed verbiage. I want them to feel what I feel. It's not necessary to agree, just listen and understand. If I succeed in documenting a given thought to my satisfaction, you'll never know it because only I know what I wanted to say in the first place. However, the fact that I posted it is a good indicator that I was satisfied, but not always.

It would be interesting to hear other peoples points of views and opinions on a subject of interest to me, but I'm not asking for it. I have no problem explaining what has happened in my past or what I did but I don't want to go through a process of justification just for the sake of it. After all, some of my postings will reference situations that happened long ago and I was a different person then. I may only remember that I did a given thing but may not remember why I thought it was a good idea at the time.

I am impressed by anyone who, when in the process of stating their point of view, respect mine. If that doesn't happen, I won't hear a thing you say.
