Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Wise Words

You are known by your friends AND your enemies. Cherish them both.

Um. Huh? ;-)

Hey, I left a comment just now under your "Tolerance and Forgiveness" post. Made myself laugh, anyway (which is, unfortunately, often the case).

I liked your other comment a LOT and commented right back atcha.

As for this post, it's the saying of a family friend of ours...my take is that it's important to express what you stand FOR but it's also important to express what you stand AGAINST.

In my case the variant is often "well I must be living life right if someone like [nasty adjective] [scathing noun] hates me, don't you think?"

Friends/enemies they all try to kill me at some point, it makes me feel loved.

I know someone who says the same about family. Doesn't seem too healthy but damn that person is Nietzsche-strong.
