DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

Maturity Looks Ahead

How many minutes, hours, or days have I spent thinking about the past? "Man wasn't that a great time..." or "If only I hadn't have done xyz I could be so much further along..." The past, your successes and failures, is always a chain to your future. You can learn from the past failures, even use them as examples of what not to do, or repeat. You can learn from the past successes and implement those tools, trades, or abilities to succeed again. Much of what we do is built experience by experience. However sometimes there is a danger in the past. It becomes a hindrance when you are tempted to spend time reviewing the past so much that you are then replaying it. Images, videos and audio in the mind, replaying what you did or didn't do. The glory days as on the football team, or the low days on the streets.


Philippians 3:13-15 (ESV)(emphasis added)
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But ONE THING I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ (The Anointed One and His Anointing) Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. 


I must learn to apply pressure to my future. Change requires change. Pastor Art Aragon says that "change requires change, if you want to change you have to change or it wouldn't be change." You can't do that same thing over and over expecting different results, that's insanity. Many times the problems of life attempt to apply pressure on us. Mark 4 talks about them choking the Word in us. To choke something is to apply pressure until it dies by suffocation. So in order to remove myself from the pressure of life I must begin to apply pressure to my future instead; to push back against the pressure pressing me. 


I apply pressure to my future by engaging my dreams daily. As I enter into the secret place of the Most High, He begins to speak to me. He tells me things about himself, and about my future and about my present. He gives me insights, ideas, and witty inventions. He gives the ability to see something no one else sees, or in a way no one else sees it. There are unique things I was called to do on this planet, in this life. He called me to do these things before the earth was created! My time in the presence of God, in prayer and study and meditation of His Word brings me to a place that I can hear him and walk it out.   



However, if I gain a grand revelation and forget about it by noon and then don't do anything about it again for three years... it will have profited me nothing. Faith without works is dead. So then what must I do to work things out that I hear from Him? Especially, what do I do when the dream or vision of a project or calling is so big that I can't begin to fathom how He could ever bring that to pass in my life? How does the person flipping burgers having visions from God of a multi-million dollar business begin? 


But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it. I must meditate on the Word of God day and night that I may do it, not just the bible which is of course the HIGHEST authority and must never be contradicted, but also the word I hear from Him in prayer. 


This can be done many ways, it can be done by taking a picture that reminds me of that calling/mission/vision and post it on the wall, door, etc. Every time I see it I can thank God for bringing it to pass in His timing. But whatever the tool, the principle is the same. Keep it before me, meditate it, keep it in my mouth, which brings it into the heart, which comes back out as Faith. Speak to the mountain, daily. I must begin to use my imagination to work for me and not against me. I must imagine days of too much blessing, instead of days of not enough. I, and I alone, must be responsible for my future, through Him who called. He will do the work, if I will do the believing. That is my work. My work is to do all I can to build my believer muscle until I can't believe anything else but that which he has called me to. The work of the believer is to enter into the rest. It's a heart AND mind matter. Selah...Pause and think about it, meditate it, ponder it...

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

Shots in the dark...

For the first time since my wife passed, June 25, 2018, I've decided to start writing again. Not sure if this will make it into the final cut of the novel I'm working on (Distortion, a White Noise series), but I thought I'd share the rough draft of my first words back.

***
Wet hail assaulted the thin metal roof of the RV like a barrage of weapons fire. Ash sat on the floor, back against the couch, dripping red water onto the floor, a mix of his own from a rough patch and hers... His mind was black as the room, his thoughts hidden from himself like the storm had hidden the stars.

Like the random hits of blue lightning outside the windows, images flashed through his mind of the night's events. What he could have done differently. What he could have done to prevent it. Every plan had been stunted, but they persevered, until the end. He kept coming up blank. Every alternative could have ended them here. He was lost. Blank. Mind racing on a track with no destination.

He was…
