Boomer’s Rambles (Versus)

here we go with two more, will be chapters in my book Versus.  
As I have stated before, I do have a better title for this, it just 
hasn't come out of my head yet.
The different chapters are as follows:
Need VS Want
Feeling Vs Emotion
Common sense VS Logic
Perception VS Conception
Opinion VS Thought
Hope VS Optimism
Good VS Great
Morality VS Legality
In all cases the main question is: What's the difference, 
is there one, why or why not?
The next two paragraphs are just a sample of what is too come.
Commonsense vs. Logic

Logic has to do completely with reason and predictability.
Logic is derived from knowledge you already have. 
Commonsense is based on judgment and perception.  
Therefore commonsense is knowledge you have that is based on life’s logical conclusions.
For instance: you cook yourself a little dinner. You know your dog is going to want some of your meal.
Now, commonsense tells you, you get the actual meat of the entrée, your dog can have the bones.
Logic should be the one that kicks in and tells you if you had t-bone for dinner that is fine. 
The dog gets the bone. It is also the one that tells you if these are chicken bones, 
it is not a good idea to feed them to the dog.
OH wait…maybe that last part is commonsense.

Perception vs. Conception

*Perception: is the art of perceiving , observation, awareness of the elements. 
A physical sensation that is interpreted through the light of experience.
*Conception: the function or process of understanding ideas.
 A complex product of abstract or reflective thinking.

Perception is based on the actual experience of an event or sensation. 
Whereas, conception is the interpretation of such an event.
The best description I heard on this, was by a preacher. 
He had talked about the perception and conception of the bible. 
The perception of the Hebrew people back in the days of the bible was that 
God allowed the plagues and the famine. 
He did nothing to prevent them. The conception of the bible today is that 
God not only allowed them, but he created them.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
