New Trends in the Flow of Mainstream Ideas

Posted on: May 25, 2013


Non-Fiction BooksSince it is a long three day holiday weekend, I thought I’d keep myself busy and out of trouble by checking out several books on my Goodreads To Read shelf. Turns out I under estimated how much time I actually have to read or over-committed with the number of pages, excellent writing and creative words to fill my brain with.

Always an avid reader, this year I’ve developed a new found hunger for learning through reading others perspectives, experiences and recommendations. I believe most of this growth is due to the 8 Hour Work Day for Single People and the strong desire to go back to school (without paying for it).

My desire at the end of life is to leave behind something worth having, and I don’t believe in my current position as a cog in the machine that going along with the flow, doing what everyone else does, and staying within what is “safe” will get me there. Through reading I aspire to attain more knowledge, increase my developmental thinking and form creative thoughts to bounce off others and create a new trends in the flow of mainstream ideas. As with college I don’t expect a quick or easy journey but nonetheless I’m on my way. In the words of one of my favorite books:

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door…You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.” – The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

I love that line trying to go back to school without paying for it. That’s me!!! It’s ok to start out as a cog in the machine, get some momentum and then good flying off in your own direction.
Today coming back to my “hometown” I just smile because I’m so grateful for all I learned here and the platform it gave me. But I didn’t just stay on the platform I jumped off when the time was right: moving on to the next place and gearing up for the next jump!

Absolutely! I think experience is key for learning, developing, forming your own ideas and tweaking them as you move forward. Have fun in your “hometown”!

This is great, I love the flow you have as well as making a point! Also, it wasn’t Tolkien who said that, it was Bilbo, which shows how good Tolkien’s characters were!..

Thanks Dave! You’re right it was Bilbo not Tolkien!
