Who and What is the Happy Warrior

The Happy Warrior is the title of a poem... and yes, I love this poem. I do not wish to be mischaracterized, for the most part poetry is not my bag. I am not an afficionado of literature nor am I a metro-sexual (I despise that term) but a dear friend introduced me to this masterpiece of prose several years ago... it has provided no end of inspiration. The Happy Warrior by William Wordsworth outlines the qualities of a magnificent soul. I aspire to possess even one or two characteristics that "every man in arms should wish to be."


This blog is a representation, in conversational form, of my voyage to wrap my arms around the world in which Mr. Worsdworth's warrior finds happiness.

(Standing disclaimer: Luckily tests of spelling accuracy ended in 4th grade otherwise I would still be in Elementary School. Be forewarned, spelling errors ahead. I subscribe to the wisdom of a great man who said, "I have utmost disdain for a man who can only spell a word one way." -Benjamin Franklin)

Wacky Wednesday (well... Thursday): Fun Pictures!

I've been so caught up in the serious side of life that I failed to post a Wacky Wednesday... and here it is Thursday. Mrs. Wicke has taught me the importance of not being so serious and I am indebted to her. Although we face some HUGE challenges ahead (I am not too encouraged about what is just over the horizon vis a vis politics, social and cultural conditions, etc.) we must take time and laugh. To help with this lofty goal, I present you with: Truth through pictures and commentary.




I am exercising my best self-control to keep from offering some social, political and/or cultural commentary on these pictures... each one is so full of truth regarding contemporary society. No, I won't do it. I will resist. Just take another look and laugh yourself silly. There are times when we just need to laugh.
