I’ve said it several times, please be sure you are seeing and hearing what is there and not what you want was there.

MISCELLANEOUS 

The Odds & Ends of Being Extraordinary

I know it is challenging, trying to be extraordinary; which is probably why so many people don’t even try.  You just have to learn to forget yesterdays mistakes, undone tasks, etc. and begin the day as a fresh opportunity.

Another Roman Statue 

I was going through my photos and found another statue from one of my visits to Rome.  I’m not sure exactly which emperor this is a statue of, since some of the later emperors during Rome’s decline weren’t much more than clowns.

EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE

Thomas Paine

Wk 17 Thomas Paine

Thomas Paine (January 29, 1737 – June 8, 1809) was an English-American political activist, philosopher, political theorist, and revolutionary. One of the Founding Fathers of the United States, [ ], and he inspired the rebels in 1776 to declare independence from Britain. [ ]

Born in Thetford, England [ ], Paine emigrated to the British American colonies in 1774 with the help of Benjamin Franklin, arriving just in time to participate in the American Revolution. Virtually every rebel read (or listened to a reading of) his powerful pamphlet Common Sense (1776). Common Sense was so influential that John Adams said, “Without the pen of the author of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain.”

Paine lived in France for most of the 1790s, becoming deeply involved in the French Revolution. He wrote Rights of Man (1791), in part a defense of the French Revolution against its critics.  In 1792, despite not being able to speak French, he was elected to the French National Convention. 

In December 1793, he was arrested and was taken to Luxembourg Prison in Paris. While in prison, he continued to work on The Age of Reason (1793–94). Paine’s imprisonment in France caused a general uproar in America, and future President James Monroe used all of his diplomatic connections to get Paine released in November 1794. He became notorious because of his pamphlets The Age of Reason, in which he advocated deism, promoted reason and free thought, and argued against institutionalized religion in general [ ] (Source: Wikipedia)

  1. I love the joke about men taking messages. Similarly – I mentioned to a friend picking up his daughter that they are letting the kids play with Corn Starch (it was a science experiment). He thought I said they were letting the kids play with Porn Stars. Hummmm.

    • Thank you for commenting Christy. I see you are going back a ways–thank you for that too. As for yesterday’s mistakes, we all make them. About all one can do is learn from them and move forward.
