Away

Make me with the wings so that I might fly

Beyond the words of the devil’s last sigh

And away from where all the people died

Where the wind is a child’s first cry

What do you do, with no words left to sing?

I will be riding the dragons wing

And I’ll hear all these Angels Sing,

Wizards are coming, with gold a bring!

I am really all alone, inside of you

And we don’t care if these lies are true!

For I will be there when the world is through

On the dragons Wing, where the wind just blew.

Whose Line Is It Anyways?

There is an overload of opinions on social media . It’s great being opinionated. I am an opinionated person, the problem is no one is listening. It is a conundrum, for how can I ask you to listen to me, when I am not listening to you? Sometimes I can’t stand Facebook or Twitter. I honestly, can’t take other people’s opinions. Sometimes I just want my own thoughts. Nothing personal, but no one’s going to change my views on anything. Nor am I going to change anyone’s view on anything. So sometimes I just get very annoyed.

So I try to just be a meme person. But that annoys me too. I mean really, how many cat pictures can you take? Or worse yet, when people post a sentence with a colored background. we will be more interested in you, if you make it brightly-coloured.

At least I have not started a political fight on WordPress. Nor have I hurt anyone’s feelings. Nor has anyone hurt my feelings.

You have to be so careful on social media. Will that offend someone? Will that hurt someone’s feelings? Will someone see this as bullying? It gets a little ridiculous, don’t you think?

When did we stop being human beings and become a category? When did being political become being a democrat or a republican. Heaven forbid your socialist. And what exactly is a foodie? We even put a category in our type of diet. Vegan. Vegetarian. Piscatarian. Carnivore. No gluten Everything is so compartmentalized .. I’m afraid to say which compartment I’m in , because it will piss someone off. Well, I don’t want to be in a compartment any more! Just because I’m for women’s lib does not make me a feminist nor doesn’t make me not a feminist. I just like equality. I am not a carnivore because I eat chicken, I just think they’re dirty vile little animals. Too many opinions, and too many compartments.

I think with all this connection in cyberspace, with their eyes wide open, the world is blind. Love. Hope. Empathy. Truth. All are becoming a blur and lost. The great thing about history, is that it repeats. I think perhaps we were smarter thousands and thousands of years ago. The microchip and cyber technology has given us the illusion that were smarter.

I hope somehow I get to see where we will be in 3,000 years. I wonder if we will go back in time or if we will move forward? I can’t help but feel like the things that matter most have been lost. I want them back. Will you come with me?

WordPress vs. Facebook

Ever notice all the advertisements on your blog or on Facebook? Do you remember them existing years ago? They did not. And now that WordPress and Facebook competes with each other, often my blogs are not posted to Facebook. Facebook does not want you to open a link to another business like them. Therefore, it is difficult for bloggers to spread their information on social media. It is a cyberspace War. I never thought in my life such a thing would exist but it does. Now people like me, are caught in the crossfire of this war between two social media monsters. How do we, the bloggers, compete with such a huge business. Aren’t you sick of seeing all those ads on Facebook and word press? Don’t you feel we should have a say in what ads we are reviewing? Just some food for thought. Nothing we can do about it. Just thought I would make them aware that we are aware. Power of the people. We will think of something.
