As Much Fun As It Is to Get Into Discussions...

...it is time for me to hit the road. It is nearly 2:00 p.m. and I have yet to get my bag packed to be away for a couple of days.

My emotions have run the gamut here today, which is what I love most about this site. It also reminds me of the diversity in thought that we have in this world, whether we agree or disagree. Most of time we will fall in-between.

I am ever-reminded that some throw out words to get reaction, but truly do not want to have discussions. They either cannot or are unwilling to do so.

I must remember to choose discussions or debate more wisely. I appreciate well-constructed rationale, wisdom, and interchange, whether or not we always agree.

Now, it is time for me to shift into different gears. I have another road ahead of me this next few days.

We'll miss you here, but am quite sure RGD will be counting his blessings that you are there with him in what must be some anxiety-filled days.

As Yogi Berra (RIP) put it, "When you come to a fork in the road - take it!"

I hope thing go smoothly and that RGD comes through with ease. Be careful while you travel.

I agree but sometimes we tend to over discuss things at times.

Happy travels! I hope I ain't one of those you feel don't engage in discussion.

I'll be keeping RGD and you in my prayers. Travel safely and let him know we are lifting him up in our hearts.

Are you kidding me, LoudMan ? You know that you and I are fine. And thank you.

CoralLevang wrote on September 24, 2015, 1:15 AM

Perhaps, but that is why we need to find those who are much like us in the wanting discussion.

I have always hated getting into discussions, unless I knew I was well-versed in something and could hold my own.

Agreed; a well-reasoned and respectful debate can be very enlightening, but it's hard talking about something that people feel strongly about without things getting emotional and counterproductive. Have a good trip!

CoralLevang wrote on September 26, 2015, 2:03 PM

Trip was Wednesday. I'm home now. emoticon :winking: I think that emotion is fine. I think that the counter-productivity is not a given. That requires a bit of maturity, and open-mindedness.

Dude, I'm gonna stop commenting on your old stuff if you can't let me pretend it's current emoticon :tongue:
