Odd question? I think not... most mature - ish people I know are consistent and most consistent people seem mature to me anyhow. I guess that's not an ipso facto conclusion based on what I remember from logic, plus our terms are a bit loosy goosy. So let's get down. Initial observations... I couldn't find any links online in images which included consistency and maturity. Consistency is apparently required for success. Maturity has to do with behaving "properly" as an adult whatever that means. The quotes varied greatly. Suffice it to say I learned something and I'm not wrong... nice double negative and appropriate.

What shall I forgive this day to amuse and delight?
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
