I started blogging on July 28, 2005. Wow! It’s been such a long time! I originally started this blog on somewhat of a whim, and half expected it to be a passing phase/hobby. It didn’t turn out that way at all. I love blogging! I love the people I’ve met through blogging, and I love the growth that I’ve been through as a result of blogging.
I put a lot of thought into creating the name and theme of this blog and it’s served me well. Disjointed Intelligence to me is about how we are all- whether we know it or not- interrelated. At times it’s so hard to see how we connect and how our actions change the lives of those around us and the lives of those who we may never know. Our intelligence, and how we share it determines future experiences for many people. Many times, we are unable to see the outcome of our decisions, causing life to seem a little disjointed. Through blogging and commenting, I’m often able to see those connections more clearly.
Along those same lines, when I write, most of my thoughts are jumbled and disassembled. They don’t make much sense when they first come out of my head, but when I’m through with the writing process, I see clearly what inside I already knew, but hadn’t put together yet. In a way, my writing gathers and assembles my disjointed intelligence.
Quite often, I’ve found that my thoughts are not original. Others have thought of the same things I have and come to the same conclusions. The same conclusions, explained in many different ways add levels of depth to a concept that I may have never seen before. Martin Luther King Jr. and Albert Einstein are just two of the famous people I’ve closely related with in thought. They are an inspiration to me, as are many others- some well-known and others not.
The main point is: although we may all seem to be floating around randomly in our own worlds, we’re not. We determine what our world will be and by doing so affect the lives of those around us and those distant- whether we know it or not.
I started this blog with these words in 2005 and find them still applicable now:
For a long time I have considered these relations: our actions and reactions and their effect down the line, in short, life. These situations never cease to amuse and amaze me, as the topic reaches far and wide. There are lessons to be learned, stories to be told, and fun to be had. So, on this humble blog, I hope to make many connections and explore and learn about life, laughter, lessons and love.
Please, please feel free to comment, contact me, and share connections as they happen. Live life, laugh, learn and be happy! After all, isn’t that what life’s about?
