To my son Tommy,

These letters I right to you are in the form of stream of consciousness.  This means there is no editing.  Whatever comes out of my mind ends up on the screen.  Occasionally I proof read but that is just for spelling mistakes or glaring word omissions and other such mistakes.  It never effects the content and in fact I rarely even do the necessary proof-reading.

There is a reason this style of writing works for this blog.  It most closely resembles what this blog is about which is real life.  Real life is just stream of consciousness.  It is spontaneous and live.  You don't get many do-overs or chance to make edits.  This is not to say you can't make corrections in your life, but corrections are after the fact.  It is like a newspaper article that makes an erroneous statement, it is already printed and out there and not till later is the amendment or correction or apology issued.

Because life is in the form of stream of consciousness, I encourage to prepare yourself and train yourself to the best of your ability.  If your are prepared and practiced, you will lessen the need to issue corrections for your already ran articles of your life.  Live the best life you can at all times and make the best choices you can at all times and you will have little to no reason to be sorry.  Trust your instincts, trust your soul,  consider your words before sending them out in the world, consider each action, talk slowly but think fast, if you follow all these techniques your stream of consciousness called life will be a much more enjoyable experience.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
