In My Opinion

We all know people who have an opinion on everything and share it with no prompting. I am not one of those people.

There are many, many topics about which I have NO opinion. Some topics don’t hold much interest for me or have already been fully shared by others who are informed. Others require more time to study than I care to invest. If at any time, you see me offering an opinion that sounds uninformed, please call me out on it.

I feel well prepared to share my opinion on these subjects: music (1940 – 1970), literacy deficiency, non-profit operations, brain injury/recovery, American history, writing, and exercise. I study a couple of these weekly. Should you care to ask me about any of these, I will gladly offer my opinion.

Learning more about gardening and cooking remain unfulfilled promises I have made to myself but have not kept. Time grows short and these are likely to remain unaccomplished.

You have a personal list of topics that you have studied before forming an opinion. Good for you; you are enriching and informing the lives of others. Please keep on sharing those that you have studied.

Cautionary Note: We are under no obligation to have an opinion on every topic. Only after considerable study should any of us form and then share our informed opinion.

If you do decide to share your informed opinion with others, be prepared to have it rejected by those who do not discern between informed and uninformed opinions. They have made up their minds on most topics and will not be moved.
