On a yearly basis, I post a refinement of my Memorial Day expression on Memorial Day, which occurs during the last Monday of May.
Prior to last Monday, I heard word of the upcoming Memorial Day, which prompted me to refine and schedule that post for this year on May 24, which I believed to be Memorial Day.
During the morning of May 24, as I casually enjoyed eating my healthy tasty breakfast, the boob tube (more specifically, some mainstream media personality) effectively pointed out that I am a boob, as May 31 is factually Memorial Day this year.
For anyone unaware of the term, the “boob tube” is a nickname for the television — a tube (cathode-ray tube), which used to be in television sets, for boobs (idiots).
I suppose it is also worth noting that I prefer to avoid mainstream television programming, so would never be watching it. The only reason the television is on around here is my mom with moderate Alzheimer’s disease considers it entertaining enough to flow electricity through it in a way that converts it to information of at least questionable quality from a certain perspective.
Rattled by my timing error, I promptly darted to my computer to pull the erroneously scheduled post, but it already thankfully received a like, so I submitted to my error, and decided to adapt differently.
Given basically any other subject matter, varying the post timing is fine. Perfection is not a destination within reality, but a healthy press towards excellence wherever fit. Moreover, I have no problem with reasonable flexibility, as required by the supreme discipline of adaption. Moreover still, within crisis lies opportunity.
However, within the strict military discipline, a similar timing error can terribly lead to catastrophe, where injury and death ripple explosively, and consequently contributes to the reason why Memorial Day exists.
Strict order is needed to quickly and accurately exercise complex moves by large groups of people, which I assume is why the military powerfully drills that discipline into their personnel.
So given this militaristic context, I humbly sincerely apologize for my timing error, and apply myself accordingly to prevent the repetition of similar errors; in true live-and-learn form, while thankful for the opportunity to try again.
Generally meticulous by nature (without being unhealthy — a.k.a. anal compulsive — about it), I exercise more care towards ensuring the accuracy of such future postings. Militaristic timing tends towards brutally challenging the artistic mind.
Still, the Memorial Day post this year is worth reading imho.
Please understand that the writing style therein is purposely heavy to some degree in order to convey the heaviness of the subject at hand.
This journal has been almost exclusively a one-way expression from yours truly to you all, and that is fine upon matching your healthy feelings.
However, reasoning is actually ultimately a social exercise (at least according to a video that I recently watched at Veritasium), so growing this journal that is basically about exploring healthy reasoning into a social expression makes sound sense. In short, feel free to share your sensible reasoning around here.
For your convenience, the following link will take you to the Memorial Day post for this year, should you decide to embark upon this heavy mission deep inside friendly territory…
