I have let it be known at my daily journal blog over at RJsCorner that Will Rogers is one of my top heroes in life. If you want to see some of the many posts about him just go there and select his name from the tag cloud.
For those of you who might not be familiar with him, some called him a satirist, some a humorist. He lived and wrote during the Great Depression in the 1930s. He had a lot to say about his view of the world, but he always did it with a dose of humor and respect. His most famous saying was.
I never met a man I didn’t like.
He made fun of many people, but he never did it with contempt. That, finally brings me around to the title of this post. I have made it a pledge that I will NOT use the blog to talk about the dark side of life, but it is kinda hard right now for me to find the humor in all the crappy stuff going on now! But if Will could do it, I certainly can too.
It is likely that most of my stories here will be autobiographical. I certainly have made many mistakes in my life and if I can help you not make the same ones I did, my words will be worth it! How’s that for a goal here at MyViewOfTheWorld? 😎
