Nonsense

I am going to take a break from blogging more than once per day.  If I miss anything really great -hold onto it for me.  I will read it when I get back. I’ve got a book to write -and I’ve put it off, way too long.

To say my blog site is lovely -moves me.  I worried so, that I didn’t pay the money to have a blog site with all the frills and whistles.  I did my best, in settling for simple, and elegant.  I appreciate that Danny finds loveliness in my site, and my words.

Sunshine Blogger Award

 Thanks to DaleCooper57 -I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award.  I’m smiling brightly -under his sunny award.  I may have to hurry up and write this, as the sun is -well, killing my eyes! The machine I am working on is new, so I don’t have many of my pictures on there.  So, I searched for one that most represents me.  Gosh this sun picture is just killing me.  Will I get through this? This picture is perfect for expressing me.  This is sad, but I moved my screen down, so these two pictures won’t hurt my eyes.  I must be a weeny!  In truth, Sjogren’s Syndrome leaves your eyes dry, plus my tear plugs are goopy -so light hurts! Why did I choose this picture?  When my first-born child was born, Sis -I always sang to her the sunshine song.  Becoming a mother was the brightest moment in my life -thus far.  She is still my sunshine, 37 years later. So, what bright sunny entity am I obsessed with, which I can write about? Well, nothing!  …

Just Jot It January 22

Just Jot It January 22nd – Felicity Jot -Felicity The Korean word for felicity is -Jeogjeol Looking at this word -it is difficult to even try and pronounce -but unless you understand how they pull their words together -you won’t guess.  This is what makes this language so incredibly tough to learn. Don’t look at me -this isn’t a word I know yet -at least I don’t know if I’ve learned it yet -which means, I haven’t learned it yet.  However, I may have said it -and didn’t realize it was this word. The Japanese translation is Umasa.  I love the simplicity of the Japanese language.  Great news -it sounds just like it is written -okay, at least I am pretty sure it does.  Their language typically is very easy on the lips. The Chinese version is Zhi.  Chinese is supposed to be easier to learn -I believe this is because of the limited word choices (at least that is my take on it).  However, again, the words do not always sound as they are written.  …

irumeur…

It angers me!  Why?  Because, life is not about color, race, rich, poor, country or position. Earlier, I listened to NPR news.  They were discussing how political figures have failed to discuss the needs of black families, that are suffering from drug addiction. They discussed how this is now becoming a part of the campaign for presidential election, because this epic addiction problem is surfacing, at a higher rate, in homes of Caucasian families. Why must everything be divided?  Why must everything be a fight of one, against another?Drug addiction is a problem for the world!  There is no color divider here. These are our children, the world’s children -and this fight should have begun back when I was a teenager -when it first fueled this madness.  Like all things, we are slow to step out from under our cloaks of self-preservation, and see the needs of others. I confess, I loved the days when hippies spoke of peace and love.  I wanted to be a part of this movement, which taught me how to love my …
