By Dick Jonas

Fighter pilots see the realm otherwise from folks. This sequence of books is a philosophical memoir of ways I experience humanity, society, and the universe I stay in.
i started those writings whilst i used to be 33 years previous. For numerous a long time it by no means happened to me that i would are looking to post them.
within the sundown of my years - i'm three-score and twelve, now - it all started to sunrise on me that it might be vital, although i am not absolute to whom, for my progeny to understand how I sensed the universe within which I dwelt.
while that consciousness started to wake up, i used to be at the beginning regretful that I had no longer undertaken the venture a lot previous in lifestyles. considerate mirrored image means that probably i did not have a lot to claim up until eventually then.
i've got collaborated without one during this project.
Nor will I, for the total inspiration is to go away in the back of for posterity my very own specific philosophical cogitations.
will probably be transparent from the textual content that although there was no collaboration, there has been and is a smart deal of effect from an exceptional many of us and philosophies at the method my brain perceived things:
• My Christian upbringing
• My mom and dad, siblings, and different relations members
• the folk of the group the place I grew up
• the colleges the place i used to be officially educated
• What I discovered in these schools
• What I discovered within the area of life
• Friends
• expert institutions in faith, the army, the sphere of schooling, and the leisure world
• Philosophers, either historical and smooth, who communicated with me via Gutenberg's significant invention.
first and foremost, I pointed out this venture as "Ecclesiastes." i believe that selection could have been encouraged by means of how the biblical e-book is titled: Ecclesiastes, or the Preacher.
As I learn throughout the books, occasionally it sounds as if i'm Ecclesiastes, and occasionally it reads like he's a chum with whom I correspond. i do not believe both experience is of any nice definitive significance; it's not relevant a lot both way.
it's my nice desire that my kids and grandchildren, and theirs, and theirs, and on past, will check out my soul because it is mirrored in those pages. The progeny of any of my contemporaries also are welcome to inquire.
Please be suggested, those books are usually not written in English. they're written in American redneck fighter pilot. They learn, in particular after in regards to the first two decades, like they might sound if you happen to and that i have been having a talk - well mannered, informal, or perhaps heated once in a while. possibly over a cup of cheer.
therefore, language technicalities occasionally take slightly a beating. a few examples:
• ain't - for am/is/are not
• ever - for every
• do not - for doesn't
• were not - for wasn't; and the converse
• they - for there
• anyhoo - for anyhow
• 'at - for that
• thunk - for suggestion (past demanding of think)
• son of a complain - numerous adaptations: sunzabitches, sumbitch, et al
• . . . the spaced ellipsis - a favourite gadget for making print sound like conversation
• - the em sprint - one other gadget for comparable purpose
• common omission of a necessary article or own pronoun initially of a sentence
• occasional omission of the ultimate 'g' and it is substitute with an apostrophe on gerunds and current participles
• using all higher case letters in a few phrases and words; it really is my means of shouting in print. There are a few exceptions. within the previous years, I used all higher case for a few everlasting innovations: LOVE, fact, and infrequently guy signifying all humankind.
• italics are used for certainly one of reasons: to supply an emphasis in print which might be communicated with vocal inflection in a talk; or to set aside titles of inventive or literary works
• the entries starting within the mid 80s, begin to replicate a growing number of most of the cynicism and impatience one acquires with age. Profanity, innuendo, and different foul language start to look. Be fore-warned: There are a few parts within the books no longer acceptable for kids nor well mannered company.
