History Channel

Spent the day doing chores, had an early meal, and napped on the couch while letting the History channel do it’s thing on my subconscious mind. Actually, I slept on the couch last night and did the same thing. It’s not that long ago…history…ha…and it’s filled with such brutality. That history of humanity is obviously not over…there’s still brutality, but the dark ages, man, craziness. Of course, throughout history, humanity makes up for itself with so much learning and advancement and good things…art, literature, faith, human development. History as a whole, not just focused on the history of war. The history of civilzation encompasses it all. I never did well in history in high school. I didn’t understand the context. But I love history now, albeit my study of it has been a bit dilletentish. But the History Channel is great for giving you a basic overview and understanding of things for further research and study. History, for me, becomes more of a philosophical journey, trying to understand myself and the context in which we live.
