Inquiring Minds

Today's song is Little Lies by Fleetwood Mac, released in 1987.

To be asked a question is often a sign of respect for you held in the eyes of another. Sometimes the intent of the inquiring person is clearly understood and your comfort level is high when you give your response. An experienced person will be diligent in such matters, prepared to offer something positive to those that politely and respectfully ask.

At times in your life you will be targeted by someone who wants to know more about you, but they don't have the ability to approach you outright. The more public you are, the more of a target you may become in their eyes. Some people know this happens and they try to shield themselves from exposure and the reality of life. There are those who are more open and less concerned about public exposure.

I consider it a matter of personal inner-strength to be able to sustain standing up for one's own principles in life and withstand the scrutiny from others. Not everyone can be so forthright and they have their own reasons, their own personality makeup, their own insecurities for why this is so for them.

I enjoy the email comments I receive with respect to those that knew me, know me now, or only encounter me through this web site. I try to help those that contact me no matter whether they met me previously or not. I'm not afraid of inquiring minds because I've been involved in all kinds of circumstances in life.

My answers are tailored by a variety of factors. Sometimes I can offer little assistance in return to questions. Sometimes I can complement one's own knowledge somehow. Sometimes I have the answer they seek but they need to properly ask me to find out for sure. The following section from my Children Of The Sun page states this more clearly:

Sometimes the answers we seek are determined through study and research. Often to reach the truth you must ask and be ready to explain your request to another. If there is reluctance or hesitancy on your part to contribute as much information as you expect in return, then you are not yet ready for the truth. A true child of the Sun will know what to do and when to do it with a compassionate and open mind.

I don't pretend to be an expert in life, for I will make mistakes in the future and that's a certainty. I do offer a perspective of what it's like to feel pretty much whole in life. My life is made more complete with every conversation I hold. May it be the same for you.

In response to inquiries of another kind made of me, I asked my friend and mentor, Gene Weed, to present some technical information about his sound restoration techniques he uses on his 78 RPM record collection. He went beyond the call of duty by conducting this podcast interview [ Link since removed ] with Professor Brian Davies, author of the ClickRepair program.

I think you'll find it very informative. Thanks, Gene!
