The Why Question

Life is for all intents and purposes supposed to be a mystery right? So why is it that I spend a majority of my life trying to answer the why question. I mean don't get me wrong I don’t think I could be me with out my ever so persistent need to know more but where is the line? At what point is the knowledge that I (or we for that matter) have gained enough? Is there such thing as enough or too much knowledge? For as long as I can remember I have questioned everything... I know that every young child asks questions. It just seems that I never moved on from that point in my life. I don't know if that makes any sense. But it is what I am thinking about... So a couple of people have told me that my blog is lacking zing... my only reply to these comments is eh... deal with it. See the long and short of it is this blog is for my benefit. It is solely an outlet so that I don't go insane and yell at some poor unsuspecting private or hajji... or NCO....Or you know anyone that could have a detrimental effect on my career. I am truly happy that so many people read my blog. I would be lying if I said I didn’t want you to read it. But I honestly want you to know that I write it for me... If I could put into the writing the weight that is lifted off of my shoulders every time I post on this blog it would fill volumes. I don't know why but writing has always been a release for me, Gramps I do read the comments and I appreciate the compliment you gave me. Normally I have a hard time when people compliment me in any way. But especially when they compliment my writing. It wasn't until I served in Iraq my first term that I started making a regular attempt to share my writings with the masses... I have to admit it is an awesome feeling knowing that strangers that you will never meet face to face are reading your thoughts and musings. I knew then that I would truly love to be a writer... And as it turns out I am trying to actually write a book write now... Well sort of anyway... It isn't nearly as easy as one would think... I can tell you that I am trying... and that like me, my main character has an insatiable need to answer the Why question. So here is hoping that a year or so from now you will be picking up the first novel by A.J. James Brooks... who knows maybe there is a little mystery after all.
