A winter affair

it is truly a winter affair!

It is cold and icy out there

Come inside, don’t be late!

For it is time to hibernate.

We wait for Saint Nick to arrive.

World is frozen, yet, we are alive.

Much too cold for anger or fear.

For it is the best time of year!

Everyone is Kinder. Everyone is nice.

We hope, Donald Trump doesn’t win twice.

At Christmas time, we simply don’t care,

Whom is in office, it’s a winter affair!

Random acts of kindness, are everywhere.

We don’t see status, or skin color. Your gender we don’t care,

Black Friday is over, we still shop for toys.

Even for those on the naughty list, making too much noise.

It’s that time of year when we just love each other.

Everyone becomes your sister or brother.

Why can’t we be like this the rest of the year?

no hate. No war. No reason for tear.

Everyday, I wear my heart on my sleeve.

I want every day to be Christmas Eve!

when it’s spring, and you start to feel locked in a cage,

Don’t hate on your neighbor. Stop getting road rage!

Remember the happiness you feel right now.

Pass it on, I will tell you how…

No matter the season, or position of the sun,

God bless us, everyone!

no matter the season, remember to care,

Make every day a winter affair!

Happy Winter Solstice, everyone.

I love you, no matter where you put the Sun.

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.

We Didn’t Start the Fire

I have seen a lot in my lifetime. And I am only 39 years old?! Here is a look back at what I have seen.

1980. Ronald Reagan and the Cold War Red Scare has Us in an uproar.

1984. Ronald Reagan’s back for more.

1988. Cold war ends with the destruction of a wall.

19 92. Persian Gulf. Oil and money. Bill Clinton will stand tall.

1996. The illusion of Peace. Monica Lewinsky plays with a cigar and hides a dress.

Y2K. The end of the world didn’t happen. Bush’s son vows Revenge. 911 happens. What a mess?

2004. Isis. Terrorism. Not a good time to be Muslim in America.

2008. We are hoping B . Obama well end the Hysteria

. 2010. My daughter is born. Nothing else seems to matter.

2017. Number 45 takes office. I thought my world would shatter.

20/20. Yet to come. Will we learn from our mistakes? Doubtful. The only thing I am sure of is, that we didn’t start the fire. It’s been always burning since the world’s been turning.
