This Side of the Apple
This Side of The Apple is about expressing my thoughts on situations, concepts, and ideas based on my lived experiences, values, current state of mind, and assumptions. In other words, it’s all about my little old perspective at a specific time. My hope is that the great value that I place on human kindness comes through in each post, even when I use unkind words or when it’s clear that something has gotten under my skin.
At the core of all of my writing is a deep desire for everyone to just get along. Such a simple desire but one that requires the complicated actions of taking in other perspectives, seeking understanding of those perspectives, and coordinating an understanding of those perspectives to move toward a kinder existence.
I invite everyone who stumbles across this blog to leave comments in the spirit of sharing your own perspective while trying to understand mine. I promise that I will try to do the same in responses.
