Blueprint: (n) a design plan or other technical drawing.
I don’t often take time with this particular essay to discuss current events or natural happenings. It’s really more a primer on what is primary.
But I find myself in an interesting dilemma.
I have set a blueprint for my life, my work, my mission, my writing and my sharing with humanity–to stay away from politics. To me, politics is taking what might be a good idea and hammering on it until it’s pleasing to as many people as possible.
But in this particular political season, I am stymied.
My blueprint is threatened.
For if I talk about kindness, courtesy, gentleness and tolerance, it will appear to my reader that I am preaching against Donald Trump.
On the other hand, if I write an essay on honesty, being forthcoming, freshness of ideas or even gaining the acumen of using the Internet and email–doggone it, it would appear that I’m striking out against Hillary Clinton.
So I find myself squeezed like a tube of toothpaste which should have been replaced four days ago.
When you can’t speak a virtue without attacking one or the other candidate, what you have is a commentary on the lack of virtue in our candidates.
