Personal Thought Pieces

A thought piece is an article or essay intended to stir the reader’s thoughts. It is usually speculative, with expository material, context, and the author’s analysis and opinion of existing ideas while presenting beliefs, ideas, and comments in a structured and concise way.


Sometimes, thought pieces can lean toward the controversial, especially when they seek to challenge majority opinions. They encourage people to dig deep, think through, and discuss different philosophies, including economic, political, social, and cultural issues of the present day, bringing an analytical perspective to current understandings of other frameworks, philosophies, and theories.

Gregg Henry Scanga

A Family History
"My father was born at the dawn of the 20th Century. But his passion and spirit were that of a man who should have been born a century earlier. Dad was a true cowboy in every sense of the word. He was more suited to the independent Western lifestyle of the 1800s than the world he lived in."

The Puzzle Of
Human Existence

A Philosophical Perspective

"Mankind is unique among the other living creatures who occupy our planet in that we are aware of and can ponder our existence. That statement is at least true based on our current collected knowledge. There is no documented evidence another creature has communicated to us that they have considered, analyzed, or philosophized about the reasons for their existence.
Many of us, on the other hand, have."
