SoCS

#SoCS – Be   Word -Be Be -you!  Why fight it?  If we live our lives pretending -what is the point of living? At one time I ran from the world because I knew I wouldn’t be accepted, now I face it -screaming I will be, me. I’m not alone.  Many of you also run from the world.  We stay hidden in our little spaces that we love, typing words, one after the other, sharing our thoughts -because thoughts keep us safe from others. We are afraid.  And here, we are safe. What a great feeling to have friends who never judge us.  We are not criticized for our clothes, our weight, our minds, our actions.  Why?  Because we are only words. Glorious words that fill the void of people. I’m not angry.  This life isn’t about a house full of friends, being invited to parties, and being the person everyone wants to talk to at the local basketball game.  My life, your life, our lives are about our words.  That is who we were …

Stream of Consciousness Saturday

#SoCS – Reality SoCS -Real/Reality Life has been moving so fast, I haven’t found time to remember it’s Saturday. I’m not convinced anything on earth is real.  Sometimes I think we will wake up and realize we’ve only been dreaming.    I once believed in my thoughts -what appeared within, will appear before me.  I was so convinced -it often distorted my views.  Yet, for me, it was very real.  Crazy, huh? Isn’t that life?  We believe what we wish to believe and everyone else is the stupid one.  Politics -If this is your passion, you will be convinced your choice is the correct one. Children -If you believe girls are a burden; you will believe all girls are a burden. Religion -If you believe two, our more religions are a perfect fit; you will become a bi-religion (just made that up, hehe).  Apparently, bi-religion has already been taken, shucks! Family -If you believe your children will be better off without living with their other parent full time; you will get a divorce when the mood …

Just Jot It January 30

Just Jot It January 30th – An- #SoCS   Jot -An Antihistorical means opposing history.  At first, I asked myself, “Why would anyone oppose history?  But, then I started thinking about it.  The people who would oppose history -are those that find fault in the historical content, or felt the written history was misleading -unfair, untrue or lies. For instance, if you lived in South Korea -North Koreans would learn an entirely different historical event -around the same theme of what you would be learning. Same thing could be happening in Vietnam, between East and West Germany (while they were divided -however, there could still be people who remember the division of the Great Wall, still believing what they were taught. If America had divided between the North and the South -what kind of historical documents would have been taught?  The Indians and the White man; the blacks and whites; Jews and Muslims; Palestinians and Israel.  The list could go on and on! We rely upon our history authors to tell the historical truth -the good, the …

Just Jot It January 23

Just Jot It January 23rd – Odd/Even #SoCS Jot -Odd Is it odd that I am already down here, writing -when I haven’t even had breakfast?  Why aren’t I skinny? I have a question?  What is odd? I find beauty is most everything.  Even though I may not find everything beautiful.  Is that odd? The ugliest creatures are usually the ones I find most adorable.  Is that odd? When a great children’s book comes out -I beg my kids to sit and listen, because I don’t want to miss the book.  Is that odd? I built a small fairy house with the first twin.  (the other is adopted, so she wasn’t with us yet.  I call them twins because they are six days apart in age)  While she slept, I started a fire upon a rock.  When she woke up -I told her a fairy had come to visit while she slept, and had lunch.  Is that odd? I hide treasure for the kids -because I want to go on the hunt with them.  I love the Clive Cussler …

SoCS -What?

Just Jot It January 16th – What #SoCS   Subject -What? What am I doing on here, writing a stream of my consciousness, every Saturday?  My oldest boy, and his three children are here for the weeknd.  Is there something wrong with me, that I will take these precious moments -and isolate myself down here -writing?  What? What is the reason my cat insist upon walking back and forth in front of my face, every time I sit at my desk? Does she want to annoy me on purpose, or does she just want to share this time together?  What? What is the purpose of a Language class, that doesn’t teach? My daughter is learning Spanish on the computer -and her English speaking teacher just sits at his desk.  She doesn’t even use the language in class -how will she learn it?  What? What do I believe about all religions? What we are all touched by the same God -but, some divided him, and went their separate ways.  Each -deeply believe.  Some are still dividing him?  What? …

Nonsense

Sometimes, you just stumble onto something, without even giving it much thought -and it changes your life. Linda G. Hill has brought dozens of people to my blog site.  I’d seen SoCS many times, as it blinked into my email, and erased it.  Honestly, I just didn’t think about writing from prompts.  I’m ashamed to admit this -but I am an honest woman.  One of my possible strengths, and flaws. One day, Just Jot It January popped up.  I deleted it.  After about two seconds, I brought it back up.  The name just sounded interesting.  After reading her list of prompts -I thought it would be fun. If you are a blogger -and you want to be noticed, check out lindaghill.com.  It’s not only fun -it will bring people to your site.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Jan. 9/16 “Title” – title of a favorite movie. The Last of the Mohicans is one of my favorite movies.  Each time, I watch this movie, I feel that same since of thrill.  The old Indians amaze me.  Their lifestyle, culture, and abilities leave me in awe. I’ve always envisioned a world where we respect every thing and every one.  Now, I’m not trying to say that Indians respected everyone.  We already know they took women and children, enslaving them, as a regular practice, during a raid. Still, they lived more closely to the first men -living off the land; surviving or dying by their own prowess.  I like these characters in a man, and I admire this quality in a woman. Thanking the animal that feeds you, and using each part of its body for food, tools, shelter, and clothing -their is something primitive and manly, about a man that protects, provides and withstands the elements of life. I suppose the same could be said for the men, in Mountain Men, …
