Our glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
In any compromise between good and evil, only evil can profit.
Experience, not theory or opinion, is the bedrock of knowledge.
When good people fail to act, evil triumphs.
Belief is potent, but belief does not make something true. Disbelief in something does not make it untrue or impotent.
People without courage live on their knees.
Appearances can be deceiving. A small body may harbour a great soul, and a great position may harbour a young soul.
Moderation in the pursuit of justice is not virtuous.
Commerce and spirituality, in themselves, are mutually exclusive. Commerce can be honest and without exploitation.
The only solution to violent crime in society is fear—criminals' fear of the intended victims.

Gross negligence is equivalent to intentional wrong.
Deserve something first; desire it afterwards.

Life, liberty, and property do not exist because of laws; they existed first, and laws were created afterwards.

The content of these presentations has been garnered through observation, contemplation, hopefully insight, and, most importantly, experience. Ideas and assertions are simply presented for consideration. The effort is not to prove or convince, but rather to present ideas for one’s own thought, research, innate common sense, and experience.
References are included only if information is specific and may not be generally known. No offense whatsoever is taken at any disagreement or counter-assertion. Many disagreements are due to semantics. Take whatever is useful and ignore the rest. If something fits and is useful, wonderful!

Deep gratitude is expressed to developers and everyone who has assisted in making open-source software available to all. These presentations have been made possible by LibreOffice (Open Office), Audacity, SimpleScreenRecorder, RecordMyDesktop, Glimpse, Gimp, Inkscape, ImageMagick, Pitivi, ffmpeg, OpenClipart, PublicDomainVectors, and Linux. Appreciation is also expressed to FreeThesaurus.com. In addition, gratitude is expressed to all the wonderful artists who have made their work available, for pictures speak to the soul. Gratitude is also expressed to people who have contributed comments that have helped to improve these presentations, and for the expert advice of Sweetwater, which made possible the quality of these recordings and the continued sanity of the editor.

This website does not collect personal information or store "cookies," and does not maintain a mailing list. To see new postings, simply visit the website periodically, and pass on links to others if something here may be helpful to them or to the world.

The brilliant spectrum in the banner is the closest representation of the absolute joy of a realm of which I have memory since childhood. No one owns the spectrum. It is used here because of its joy.
In case it seems that it took a lot of work to create these multi-media presentations, it was negligible compared to acquiring the inner-standing required to write the content.
