A Bathtub Philosopher is an individual who tends to think a lot. They imagine how things are, HOW they HAVE BEEN; and HOW THEY COULD BE. They may not have gone to college, or even graduated high school; but what sets them apart is that they LIKE to think. They like to ponder, ruminate, worry, draw up ‘what-if?’s, speculate, confront, dodge to the side of assumptions and explore uncharted territory. Bathtub Philosopher is the nickname I gave myself, after finding that I did my best thinking in the bathtub. – There’s just something about the water, the dark, being alone – that brings out the philosopher in me.
My father, David Lee Madison, Sr. – now THERE was a thinker! When just a child, he would pose these problems and make me wait for a day or two before he would give me the solution, hoping, that I’d get the answer on my own. He wanted me to learn HOW TO THINK; not necessarily what the schools tend to teach – or the WHAT TO THINK. I believe that should be up to the individual doing the thinking! – HEY! – it’s my brain, right? – Then I should get the chance to use it how I see fit.
This is the first post from this blog.

I do have other blogs on WordPress…stuff I haven’t updated – but it ought to give you a sense of my style and what things I’m interested in. I especially feel fond of Synergy
