Boomer’s Ramblings “Measure of Success?”

It is said that a man is only as good as his past successes. If you do not keep up with changing times than you can become a failure quick. What about all the people that are judged based on what is expected of them instead. Take your favorite athlete. When they come out of college they are, to an extent, judged on their past performances. For the most part, however, they are rated on how well the people (scouts, coaches, media, and even the fans) think they will perform. It is the same for politicians. When we vote for some one due to their past we expect them to perform a certain way in the future. So how are we really judging them and how are we being judged as judges of the ones judging the judged? (????) We judge those that judge them. I feel the need to explain. The media tells us a certain athlete is the best. They should be the number one pick in the upcoming draft. It doesn’t matter what sport. (they are judging) WE as the fans have no problem giving our opinion of the thoughts thrown out on to the air waves. We do like to think we are keeping an eye on them. this being in our own little world of course. Relinquishing our opinion of how well they (the media A.K.A. THE JUDGES) are doing. We do this at work, at home at the local taverns and sports bars even at the local grocery stores.  I believe there are moments when I am considered a very good worker. This is definitely based on past and recent production. My future success is expected based solely on past performances. I feel this is fair as long as no one expects more out of me than they are willing to give. 

DISCLAIMER: I may not succeed as soon as I would like. I do plan on becoming a success, not only as a writer, but in what ever endeavor I happen to take on. I hope to see you on the radio. blogtalkradio.com/ramblinman


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.
