We are beginning a series that we call *Everyday Writing.* Throughout the series we will be talking about the importance of sound research, critical analysis, and quality composition in everyday writing, including the all-important writing that we do for our own personal development, but also including personal and business communications.

We will be partnering with our friends at WriteGoods.com and RealManners.Work.

WitGlass Original Poetry: “Every Day on Earth—Draft One”

It’s been fifteen months since I posted my last original poetry. It hasn’t been fifteen months since I wrote my last poem, but a lot has happened in the last fifteen months and WitGlass posts and podcasts took a backseat. This poem was one of the poems I wrote in response to our family dog’s recent death.

Troubling Things about the Las Vegas Shooting

This headline probably already generated a half-dozen ideas in your mind, with one or two standing out from the rest. If you started a list, you could probably come up with a full dozen or more things about the Las Vegas mass shooting that are troubling.

All advancement of civilization, society, and culture depends on the consolidation of knowledge (cognition, apprehension, tuition), insight (*re*-cognition, understanding, comprehension, intuition), and skill (wisdom, application).

What I’m Listening to Now: Thursday, 25 May 2017, 3:29 p.m.

James Blunt’s music has been an irregular yet frequent feature of my playlists for the past ten years, starting with his album *All the Lost Souls,* released in 2007. That album was not my introduction to James Blunt—I was familiar already with his previous radio releases—but it was my introduction to his albums as whole units.

WitGlass Original Poetry: “Long Ago”

I’ve been promising poetry, and here is your first original poem introduced exclusively on WitGlass. This poem is the longest poem I’ve written to date, and because of its length, it seemed the perfect way to introduce poetry here on WitGlass, not just in written form but in spoken form, as well. So I live-recorded a spoken word performance of the poem, as well, and broadcast it is part of an episode of my podcast *WitGlass Unfiltered.*

John McCain is a war hawk. He obviously desires war and all its fruits. I don’t know why; but his track record is very clear.

In the categories of “great piece by @Gruber on the Mac Pro” and “viva la MAC Pro!” . . .

Despite my lack of Pro Mac products, I have watched and listened in pain as Apple remained silent on the Mac Pro, as users complained about the status of the Mac Pro. I have always felt that at its core, Apple is a “Pro” company; its products are designed to reach as close to the ideal as possible for all-around usability. So more recently, as I listened for word from Apple about their ultimate Pro Mac machine, I felt that this could be a watershed moment for the company. In my humble opinion, if the company were to abandon the Mac Pro market, it would signal the end of the company as we know it.

In the category of “this is why @realDonaldTrump is winning” . . .

This is the kind of logical goop that actually hands the win to Donald Trump. Camila Mendoza says good manners don’t apply anymore. Isn’t that exactly what the Trump followers were saying throughout the campaign? Didn’t they say that the other politicians and media personalities no longer deserved to be treated with so-called good manners because they had lost that high ground long ago? Isn’t that exactly what many in the mainstream media—and many other Trump opponents—argued against? And now you’re handing that over to him?
