I am a guardian of simplicity, a lover of the printed word, and a writer who knows his place amid the bustling hum of this technology-driven world.
Like traveling down the Colorado River in a white-water raft, the stream of today’s constant communication is fast but not deep. While on this wild ride you rarely find time to unplug and read thoughtful communication in silence. After being bombarded with emails, texts, twitter, ads and associated social media platforms including Snapchat, TikTok and Instagram, we can easily become over-communicated and under-achieved. In our heart we know a little silence away from electronic devices is good for the soul.
When the mind is controlled and still, what remains is the soul. When stability and quiet become a habit, maturity and clarity follow. Slowing down and digesting a good piece of writing feeds your imagination and expands your mind. A mind once stretched by a new idea moves beyond its old constraints, never returning to its former, limited dimensions.
Savor the written word, it can power imagination. If this “back to your roots” approach away from the noise, color and moving images of the youth-driven digital world stirs something within, you may find it here. Welcome to my world, relax, and savor every printed word.
After 20 years experience working as a journalist, I know stories. And I know facts. Working as an investigative reporter and as managing editor at numerous daily and weekly newspapers throughout the United States, and in Germany and Libya during the Vietnam War, I developed a way of observing the world around me and the relationships between people. This web site has some thoughts and opinions about what I have seen, heard and experienced during the last seven-plus decades.
The ed-bagley.com website is an effort to share some of those observations with you.
