There are many posts on this blog that describe me; my personality, my physical body, my mind, my habits, my behaviors and many other aspects me.
There is a word that others use to describe me – I do not use it – society decided to give it to me – others decided to label me with it.
I have used the label, the word that others describe me here a couple of times in posts – not to label me, and not to describe me.
What am I really writing about here?
Having written over 600 posts since the start of this blog; some topics come to me in an instant while others I think about for awhile. This post came to me per a comment I received from a reader. I receive many comments here on my blog, and I respond to 99.99% of them. I have a few comments that require approval; these are from readers who are commenting for the first time and yes, I have a couple of readers that I have their comments go to the ‘Pending’ folder because they left a previous comment that I did not appreciate. Okay, let’s move on.
Recently I had a comment in my ‘Pending’ folder from a first-time comment reader. I was not offended by the comment, but it did involve a detailed response from me. You know me, sometimes I respond to comments via a post – here is that post.
The reader that left that comment; I did not approve your comment, but here is my response. Your comment mentioned the ‘G’ word, the word others use to describe me; but does it describe me?
Am I a ‘Gentleman’, some would think so. Am I ‘Gentle’, I can be. Am I a ‘Gem’, well ask Gary. Am I ‘Gracious’, ‘Gratifying’, ‘Guiltless’, ‘Growing’ and ‘Groovy’? These are words that can describe me.
That other ‘G’ word, if I am correct; the word was used in 2 posts here on my blog; I do use it often, as I really do not like it much. Have I use the ‘G’ word to describe myself?
The answer is in the many posts published on my blog.
Last year, I wrote a series of posts to describe me, to expose me and let you know me – to meet me.
You can read these posts and find if I used the ‘G’ word or not to describe me –
Okay, again for that reader that left the comment – here is your answer –
Gary and I have been mistaken for brothers many times. There are many of us out there everywhere, and you say you have not met anyone from that side – you most likely have – you just did not know it. Crystal clear is a word that is always crystal clear. You know when you know – for some that is earlier and for others that is later. Many people can become anything they want to be, many people choose to be something, anything they want to be. I choose not to be anything, something I am not – but instead I am who I am.
My rant is over… I actually wanted to start with ‘Thank you for your comment.’
