It is Christmas morning, and we are waiting. Waiting for our children, young men, now, to get up. Times have changed. They used to wake up early. And wake us up early. Now, we wake them up around 10:00, too early for their tastes. But, we get hungry.
These memories bring a smile to my face. And I am waiting for the dough to rise and throw the cinnamon rolls into the oven. What better time to launch this new blog.
It grew out of an exchange with +Trina Emmerson, about the power of kindness, and civility. We reasoned that smiling was the most powerful weapon the average person could employ in an effort to save the world from humanity.
Yes, we know it is a long shot, but if everybody would work to be a kinder, a little more polite, the world would be a better place.
So, we decided to start a blog dedicated to sharing stories of kindness, civility, and generosity.
Here is the first story.
A young man, a talented wrestler, who was riding the wave of an undefeated season sacrificed his perfect record to help a disabled competitor.
Anybody who competes in anything knows the difficulty involved in reaching the lofty heights of a perfect season. Such a generous act from a person so young.
Landon Towne, thank you. It was a wonderful thing you did. Finding the power in your heart to be so noble, and so kind, we here at Life Explained want to thank you, and offer your story as proof that the world can still be saved.
There are so many good things happening in the world, and this is the place to talk about them. If you have one let us know.

Today, We Begin.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
