A Bit of Beauty

A Bit of Beauty

The primary reason I took up this challenge this year was to get myself back in touch with my inner spirit. I needed to remind myself that no matter how dark things might appear … as long as there are those who continue to create, the darkness will never be ... Read More

My Head was Having a Horrible time coming up with an H post, so I resorted to trying to make a picture. Here it is … an attempt at a Hydra. Master list of all blogs involved Day 19 entries
Windows (an ode)

Windows (an ode)

It is often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. There is little doubt of the truth of this observation … at least for those who pay attention. I believe that we can rearrange the words a bit and express another, more subtle truth: ”“ Windows are ... Read More

Why is it not acceptable to blame easy access to guns for gun violence, but it IS acceptable to blame women for the rape of women?

Why is it frequently the same people having those conflicting thoughts?

Why do (again often the same) people find blaming lack of prayer in schools is a valid explanation, but lack of societal responsibility is not?

Why do people scream that their rights are being violated because someone wants to ensure a dangerous tool only gets in the hands of those who will use it responsibly, yet our right to vote … incidentally the whole reason the constitution was written in the first place … gets violated all the time with out anyone flinching?

Why do I need to REGISTER to actually use my primary right of voting, yet it is perfectly reasonable to not have to register to have use of a device that kills?

Why is it ok to be a hateful bastard when MY religion says it is, but if YOUR religion says so you are terrorists?

Why is it ok to use woman’s breasts to SELL things, but it s not ok to use them to … say … feed a baby (the reason they exist in the first place)?

Why is it so acceptable to pick and choose which aspects of the bible, koran, constitution, etc we choose to follow?

Who is it we fear so much that we need to constantly defend ourselves? And if it is our own government, how can we call ourselves patriotic if we want to take down our government?

Why don’t people use their own heads, and actually THINK about what they are saying, instead of allowing those with personal agenda’s and LOTS of money TELL us how to think?

Why do we think new laws will fix anything, when the only people who OBEY the laws are the ones who don’t need them? Why do we find it reasonable that the only answer to violence is more violence?

Why is it US and THEM?

Seriously. Why?

Just over the next ridge

We were the only ones up. Everyone was asleep in the shelter. He had let us sleep in a bit, but we had a big day ahead of us, so it was time to get moving. With a hint of a smile, he motioned for me to be quiet as he grabbed the bag of ... Read More

What stealing pens while eating a salad taught me …

I have recently been dealing with what I consider the flip side of writer’s block. Basically instead of a lack of ideas to write about, I have a surplus. There are so many that they are bleeding together, and I am actually having a difficult time separating the thoughts enough to put them into words. ... Read More

The voice(s) of compassion – #1000Speak

It is sad that lately the only time I feel compelled to write here is when something bad happens in the world. But instead of my usual rant (though I do have a bit of rant to share), maybe for a change I will have words that will ultimately bring ... Read More

The P.O.W.ER of the mind

Destiny has been on my mind lately. Does it exist? What actually IS it? Do we follow a path that has already been set before us? Or do we make it all up as we move along? These are questions many wrestle with. These questions are lately the core of ... Read More
An ode to Black Friday

An ode to Black Friday

‘Twas the night after Thanksgiving, when all through the land, Rabid creatures were stirring, the time for shopping was at hand; The lines began building outside the stores, In hopes that shoppers would be first through the doors; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While parents began ...

A fresh canvas

As many have noticed (and I probably have said myself many times), I do not live a “traditional” life. I never have. Once, I would have said my life has been one adventure after another, with periods of stagnation of varying size in between. Others might view it differently, with me be anything from a ... Read More
