Honor and Sacrifice

It’s sad sometimes that in a fair plurality of the conversations I have with friends and acquaintances how often the subject of honor and integrity pops up, the tenets and personal code that people possess and are guided by. What’s sad is how many of these same people I talk to have to sacrifice their honor and integrity to keep their jobs. Oftentimes they feel they cannot say what they truly think or feel. 

The Knights of Solamnia are a fictional organization in the fantasy world of Dragonlance whose motto is: My Honor is my Life. Perhaps it’s only in fantasy worlds where one can say and do what’s true in your heart and mind. Perhaps it’s just a sad statement of the current trends in societal interaction. Perhaps I’ve not had my cup of coffee yet and am just rambling. 

May we all be like the Knights of Solamnia!

The Re-Examined Life

Lots of interesting philosophical discussions and thoughts have happened today, and in the preceding weeks. What about? Veganism. Yes, I have given serious thought to living a vegan lifestyle. Based on my eating habits alone, I and my wife would say I’m 90% there. More thinking on the matter is needed.

To commemorate my first post in a LONG time, here’s the Starfleet Ambassador-class Yamaguchi refit, in a new and shiny format. Enjoy!
