Monday Musings - December 22, 2014

1. The pace of life has continued to increase as the holiday season deepens. The is going to be a big sigh about 3PM on Thursday as all of the anticipation turns into wishes fulfilled.

2. Rain is the forecast for the next three days. At least it is not snow. The forecast for Christmas Day is for 50's and a heat wave!

3. 2014 is drawing to a quick close. It's funny, I just got comfortable writing 2014 and soon I will have to start writing 2015.

4. Being sick sucks! Seriously. Especially when it is a couple of days before Christmas and there is so much to do. So I'm home today feeling so worn out that I am not doing anything.

5. The news from this past weekend was especially bad. The assassination of the police officers in New York City was especially heinous. If I only listened to the news media, I might think nothing good ever happens, but I know there are millions of points of light out in the world doing good for other people.

6. I wrote about the governmental approved torture in my blog When the Good Guys Aren't. There is a good OpEd piece in the New York Times today titled Prosecute Torturers and Their Bosses that cogently expresses a good view on the matter. 

7. OK, I am tired of looking out my window at the leafless trees and gray colors. Bring on the green!

8. The NFL season is finally winding down. Baseball is two months away as pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report.
