Before I begin please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Tim Simpson, now I will allow you this minute to turn to you right and say “Who” now that that is out of the way to the point. I am a writer I have written and published over forty books. I mainly write for audiobooks that seems to be the most popular trend at the current time. However my first book a true journey of faith can be purchased on amazon or well anyone that sells books online, I have even seen them listed for over 200.00! but I wouldn’t buy that one, oh believe me it is a good book but 200.00? But I digress. Let me tell you a little about what you will find in ponderings to ponder. I will write about what ever topic hits me at the moment. Also at the end of each column you will find a promo code for a free audiobook. Yes you heard me right the first person to enter the code into the audible site or app gets a free book, no strings attached each week there will be a different code and most likely a different book. But wait there is more. I am also an artist admittedly not the best but hey I am not the worst either well at the very end of the column you will have a chance to read my very own comic strip. A dream come true. I wish I could have lived back when the come strips where all the rage, but I am getting ahead of myself. The first instalment of my column deals with just this sort of thing, so sit back ruffle the paper where others are annoyed enough to get their own copy and enjoy.
I wish we could live the way life was lived around the thirties forties and fifties. Everything was exciting. New, people appreciated what they had much than I believe we do today. Take for example the newspaper. People waited for that morning and evening edition to arrive. It was their connection to the outside world. It told of lands across the ocean, and it told of events happening in our own backyards. It entertained us with the comics, but now everything is obtained at a fingertip. Everything we want is instant, don’t get me wrong I like these things also, but in that I believe we have lost an appreciation for things. Like waiting on the mail to deliver a package, the excitement of not knowing when it will arrive, now we track everything but back then there was excitement. When radio was king you had to wait for your favorite show to air families would gather in front of the radio on Sunday night and listen to Jack Benny, or Bing Crosby, George Burns and Gracie Allen. It was a great and wonderful exciting time to be alive. Not to say today isn’t but I think there is something to be said for having to wait on those good things. As a child I could not wait to get the Sunday comics and read the beautiful colored pages I would clip them out and put them in a book and read them over and over. So why not just slow down for a day, don’t check the tracking and grab a newspaper and find the comics section and read them to you child I do this with my own son and he is seven he now has an appreciation for the things that once made America exciting.
