Channeling Nietzsche

Not Higgins. Howard!

In Mel Brooks’ classic movie (and one of my top favorites), Blazing Saddles, the character Howard Johnson remarks, “Y’know, Nietzsche says: ‘Out of chaos comes order.’”  Such is my hope for 2010.

Actually, the real quote from Friedrich Nietzche is, “One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” which isn’t quite what Howard says, but is pretty much summed up in spirit.  For me, 2009 was a mess.  I am aspiring for a more ordered 2010.

Many of you know that I had spent most of 2009 on the taxpayers’ dole (thanks, everyone!) until I found gainful employment in the fall.  Regrettably, I did not take full advantage of my lay-off and now find myself in some manner of disarray.  The honey-do list never really got off the ground– something that I know upset the Mrs– and I am prioritizing it for 2010.

Cleaning house is also on the docket for 2010.  We plan to rid ourselves of the clutter which seems to multiply faster than rabbits in our home.  If it is something in excess of what we really need, then it’ll probably go.

Organizing my on-line life, too, is in my plan.  My political leanings and rants/raves will be shuttled over to my political blog on  My more personal thoughts and musings will continue to be published here on my small piece of the ‘net.  I will still be tweeting on Twitter and periodically posting over on Facebook as well.  So many outlets!

So, please stay tuned– 2010 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for me.  Let’s hope that I can manage to make some semblance of order of it.

    Mrs. Kharmin heartily approves of the honey-do list being completed in 2010. While Mr. Kharmin has ignored it, Mrs. Kharmin has been adding to the list. If Mr. Kharmin doesn’t tackle it soon, it will look as shaggy as those dust bunnies under the bed!
