This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

I know you are all craving some kind of wisdom imparted here on this little ol' website.

Well, whether or not this counts is up to you.

There's only so much time and effort we can give to any one person-thing-event. We set priorities in our heads and shuffle things up and down that list as they are deemed to be more or less important. We'll do just about anything to be somewhere with someone if we really want to, or we'll find just about any excuse not to be somewhere if we don't.

What I don't understand, and I seem to use that phrase quote a bit, is when people seem incapable on interpreting their own priority system, or that of others.

For instance, girls, if a guy never calls you back, or he never makes an effort to come around and see you, then yeah, "he's just not that in to you". Don't kid yourselves. This same advice applies to you guys. People aren't that hard to figure out. If you call up a friend and he/she is willing to drop what they are doing and lend you a hand then they're your friend, if they make an excuse, it might just be that they have a higher priority keeping them busy (work, school, spouse etc..) but excuses like "Dude, I'm just tired." just won't cut it. You should take this as a sign that you've slipped down the priority totem pole, somewhere way down below the big-beaked bird with the outstretched wings.

... and that's ok, because we've all got to realize that the only person that's going to live at the top of that pole for the duration is ourselves. Other people will come and go. Spouses, family, kids might stay at or near the top, but not even that is a guarantee, people cheat on their spouses, treat their kids like dirt and have bad relationships with their families.

We're selfish creatures and we're always calculating the best reward for the effort. I don't say this in any sort of accusatory way, but I do wish we would be more honest with ourselves about it.
