Brand New Show
Tuning in? Thanks.
Minor league baseball players say that they’re “going to the show” when they get bumped up to the big leagues. Actors with broken hips talk about how “the show must go on.” The circus is “The Greatest Show On Earth.”
School kids, when they’re not doing “show and tell” say, “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.”
We show off, show up and show our true colors. Seinfeld did a show about nothing.
There are show girls, show dogs, show ponies and show jumpers. Some show tunes are show stoppers.
Now, after all this, take a look at the word “show.” When you’ve been pelted, blitzed and bombarded with it, somehow it looks wrong. It looks to me like s-how.
This has been an argument for subtlety, artfulness and that which is sleek.
I’m through. Show me the door.
We have so many thoughts that we need a place to archive them. This is that place. So, those thoughts that you find here will be our older thoughts, while those thoughts that you see on our Thoughts Page will be our more current thoughts. Of course, whether older or more current, our thoughts may have relevance or little or no pertinence to the world as we know it today. In either place they may be pithy thoughts or they may have absolutely no pith whatsoever. It is what it is. And, they are what they are.
Comments on our old thoughts, new thoughts, your thoughts, any thoughts are always welcome.
