AT MY AGE, I’M TOLD, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR MY HEALTH TO KEEP USING MY BRAIN. EVEN THOUGH MY THINKING IS SLOWER, MY MEMORY IS WEAKENING, MY CONCENTRATION IS SHORT AND MY CREATIVITY IS CHALLENGED, I MUST FIND WAYS TO KEEP MY MIND ACTIVE AND FLEXIBLE SO I’M LEARNING NEW WAYS TO USE A NEW COMPUTER AND I BLOG. While it is easier to just keep on rehashing the same old thoughts, repeating what I have always heard, and believing what I was told to believe, my inner spirit (not concerned with age) wants to awaken, so I blog. I have been conditioned to read, pray, learn, and grow so I can preach, teach, counsel, and consult with others more effectively. Now without a pulpit, lectern or couch, I still have to share something. So I excerse my faith and imagine someone out there is reading this and I blog.
Using that same imagination, I can fancy myself a writer. A well-known author said, “A writer is distinguished by the fact that he writes.” So I blog. Specificallly, I write the blog “Charlie Wonders,” because I am curious. I try putting into words some experiences and things thast intrigue me. So I blog on.
