Frivolous Friday~

WHY is this stuck in my head???

In days of olde,

when knights were bold,

and trousers weren’t invented;

we’d wrap our hair about our bare,

and down the road we’d goes…

Anything, once in writing will return to you…

I have been reminded that I posted once that; “If I ever have a blog I’m going to call it:

‘Odd thoughts and other things I can’t see in the mirror or scrape off my tongue with a paintstick’.”

Seeing as THIS is the blog, I guess we know how that turned out.  LOL.  Somehow ‘Rambling thru an unhinged mind’ seemed to be a lot easier to remember.  Hope we can all agree.  🙂

Because THANK YOU will never be enough..

In the interest of promoting my attitude of gratitude today, I am going to say THANK YOU again to someone amazing.  Before I had written HALF of the rough draft for the book I’m working on I had a fan made video…just because they wanted to.  It is stunning, well done, and so perfect on many many levels.  While I have said THANK YOU many times, I will continue to do so because to me THANK YOU will never be enough for the gift I was given here.

((If you’ve seen the video before, you know what I’m talking about.  It’s okay if you look away this time.))

Thursdays are for Thankfulness

This world is full of amazing people and yet with casual observation you would find that many have fallen victim to the apathy of expectation, forgetting the simple manners our mothers not only taught but insisted upon.  A look at today’s youth would demonstrate that it has moved beyond the simple apathy stage to one where we are no longer teaching it.  Gratitude is a rare animal on the endangered species list. 

The web and the waves are full of examples of bullying and abuse, but far more elusive are the examples of positive reinforcement and genuine thanks being given.  Adults are victimized by youth and it hits Youtube.  The notion of being loud-mouthed and billigerant are the stuff of the after school tele now.  No longer values and morals, but renegade youth rewarded for bad behavior with publicity.  We have children who are intimidated to go to gym because the risk of exposure thru phone camera documentation is at an all time high.  How do we combat any and all of this?  We need to step back off the information super highway and get back into our own business and back yard.  Teach gratitude, teach manners, teach kindness and compassion, but also teach repurcussions.  Life is about balance and we cannot regain it until we stop looking at someone else falling where we ourselves have been.

Where will you begin?  Do you appreciate the people around you?  Do they know it?  How do you show them that appreciation of effort is more than a special holiday or hallmark occasion?  Until we can return to the notion of being neighbors and our brothers keeper, we have no one to blame but ourselves for the downward decline.  The geo-political climate is a reflection on the small scale happenings.  They are not the solution.  We are.  Being heard when we are wronged is not what I am advocating against.  It’s being heard when someone else is right. 

I’ll put away my soapbox for now.  😉

Hello world!

Bet you thought I’d never get here huh?  Old dog and all that.  SUPRISE!  I made it.  I’ll be here…more as I figure out the navigation (yes, that has me completely flummoxed), but more and more.  Come visit me on Facebook, check out the lastest original short:: SWINGERS over at Storytime Trysts, or shout out.  It’s all good and I’m thrilled for the company as I make my way to the next new thing.

Love & light
