E-mail I got on Tuesday. Not sure who they are but I get a lot of e-mails from them. I just glance at them. Appears that they have ripped off some of my work. Typical.

But this amused I. What else can I do.

Time To THINK About Your ‘Full Year’ Resolution For 2019 — And What Better Than ‘Think A Day’.

by Anura Guruge

How many New Year resolutions have YOU given up on? Have you ever thought about that.

Calling it a ‘New Year resolution‘ is a bad start. Think of it as a ‘Full Year resolution‘. You want to stick to it all year and make it a part of your life.

I have said this before and I will unashamedly say it again. When it comes to resolutions only one — and one alone — matters and makes sense, And that is the resolution that you are going to gift yourself the privilege of THINKING.

You are what you think; thinking is what you are.

THINK A Day 2019.

Gift yourself that — A THINK A Day 2019.

Think about it.

The more you THINK about it the more you will see the benefits and joy.

The Joy of Thinking.

IBM & I, in our own separate ways, were into ‘THINKING‘ before our paths intersected in 1974. I was thinking well ahead of joining IBM, and IBM was encouraging folks to think decades prior to my birth.

IBM did not encourage me to think, but working there made me truly appreciate that THINKING was a good thing.

I am glad that IBM is having a ‘Think 2019‘ Conference.

The Gift Of Thought, The Most Thoughtful Gift Of All.

by Anura Guruge





If you think about it, even for a second, you will realize that the GIFT of thought is priceless. The most thoughtful gift of all.

It is easy to tell people: ‘I think of you‘, ‘thinking of you‘, or ‘you are always on my thoughts‘.

But, if YOU give them the GIFT of thought, they will appreciate that you really do care. It show that you care.

So, consider giving the GIFT of thought. Just THINK about it.

Harper Lee’s “Go Set A Watchman” — You Have No Choice But To Read It.

by Anura Guruge



It is certainly NOT “Mockingbird“, but it is ‘OK’! And I guess just saying that says it all: ‘OK’. Has a discerning reader ever described “To Kill A Mockingbird” as just ‘OK’?

It is not as taught and dramatic as “Mockingbird”. More dense. Lot more dialogue and much less amusing description of events, by ‘Scout’, compared to her incomparable masterpiece. Essentially there are only three bits of memorable, descriptive narrative: ‘them going swimming’, ‘the incident with the falsies’ & ‘her going to the “meeting”. Each of those were on a par with what we had got used to in “Mockingbird”.

I actually had the fortune to read “Watchman” while having “Mockingbird” read to me — though, of course, not at the same time. I had made Teischan (12) read the “Bird”. To make sure she did it properly, it became a nightly ritual that she would read a few pages, out loud to I — and this took a long time. I started reading “Watchman” during this time. So, a few hours apart, nightly I got to sample both.

The “Bird”, obviously, is a classic. It was inside Haper Lee and she had to get it out. It was not forced. It was all natural. A story she had to tell, in her own words, the way it was. And what a story.

The “Watchman” doesn’t flow as well. Not sure whether she felt as compelled to tell this story. It seemed a bit forced and that is why I think she didn’t get it 100% ‘right’.

Still NOT a bad book. Definitely worth reading. I am glad I did. In this case, for once, the movie might be better than the book because they could edit and expedite the screeds of dialog.
