attitude at altitude tuesday

It's Attitude at Altitude Tuesday, Folks - where you get to hear me opine from 7,000 feet on anything that contributes to me having a big 'ol attitude (good, bad or ugly). Let us begin:

Bad character - my own or anyone else's. It ticks me off when someone gets the chance - over and over - to simply do right, and they choose to do wrong anyway. A bit of a vague "thing" this is, I know, but it's true. It especially ticks me off when I realize I've chosen to do the wrong thing (i.e. getting whiney about a situation rather than getting productive and doing something about it, thus becoming part of the problem rather than part of the solution).

I was driving home from town in the late afternoon the other day and was treated to one of those cotton candy-and-violets winter skies that are peculiar to the month of January here at Arizona altitude. The 4Runner's radio was tuned in to a country station (unusual lately, since I've been more inclined toward Thousand Foot Krutch, Nickelback (Chad, sigh, yada yada), etc.). Anyway, this song was on the radio. I kinda like it, and it kinda speaks to the whole character thing.

Tuesday 'tude over and out.


  1. Thanks for "That's A Man." Is it OK for a man to tear up when listening/watching?

    I forget who, maybe Newman or Chesterton: ". . .the heart has its reasons that reason knows nothing of . . ."

  2. I think it might actually be required, Ken.


    Good quote.
