I am “sad.” I feel “sadness” in my heart. SAD not “depressed”

I stand here, looking out of the window, listening to Bent’s Swollen. I stand here thinking about how “sad” I am right now. Worry not, this isn’t an “Awwww poor baby” post. 😆

I am sad….
because, unless the bulk of humanity changes, we are doomed.
because I see fewer and fewer children in the out of doors, playing.
because I see people fight with themselves when deciding betwixt “right” and “wrong” when the choice is “easy.” Just do the right thing!
because those who need to be heard, who should be heard…aren’t heard.
because I am baffled about … just about everything.
because some where, some when – some one is cold, hungry, alone and afraid.
because I’ve not yet met a people whose technology would appear “magical” to me. (just seeing if you’re paying attention. Or am I?)

I am sad…
because of bloodshed over ….
pieces of metal
pieces of paper
how one group acknowledges the Supreme Being
who loves whom
land
water
cattle
dogs
football (American and European)
a pair of trainers
the latest designer fad
gold
oil
a perceived slight
a fight decades old, yet unresolved
because our respective government/rulers have forgotten that they “rule”/”lead” at the whim of the people. (With the exception of a few monarchies)

I am saddened because…
although there are a few people who “get it,” enough do not “get it.”
because as much as I welcome change, I dread the changes taking place in the world today.
because people just don’t get that…..(homage to A Fine Frenzy)

We were all one cell in the sea in the beginning.

Although I am saddened, I do believe that there is hope. LOL, I have faith in humans. I believe, that eventually they’ll do the right thing…..eventually. Let’s hope it won’t be too late.

Oh, I say “sad” not “depressed” because, I know that we can change. It is because of that knowledge that I’m not depressed.

Well, I’m needed in another place in time!

Yeah, I AM of peace!

The Pay it forward challenge

Well, I made the mistake of actually reading a few Facebook postings and ran across this…

The first 5 people to comment below will receive a gift from me. It might be a book, concert tickets, a pen… who knows… a random surprise. It will be sent to you sometime before the end of 2013, randomly and without notice. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, provided you are a friend on FB. It will happen whenever I feel inspired and I find something cool that I think you’ll like. There is one catch. Those five people must make the same offer in the FB status before the end of the week. It’s about spreading goodwill and paying-it-forward.

THIS IS/WAS FOR FACEBOOK ONLY!!! I do not there to be any confusion!! 🙂
I thought this was refreshing! There was no threat of financial ruin. My hair won’t fall out. The swarm of locusts has been delayed! Jejejejeje

So, I’m going to participate! I’ve some really neat gift ideas!

Let’s see….

three down, two to go!

Is it wrong for me to be really excited about this?

A pui tardi!

overcast, make-up and ripples of thought

humm
still wiped from last night’s flash
I am afraid to watch it.
because, I might, in the overcast light of today, tamper with the message.
bits and pieces

this morning on my walk
I saw a man apply make-up in the car park @ 7-11.
I looked and shook my head.
you have 3 days beard growth…whats the point?
everyone knows that make-up should be applied to a “smooth” surface.

gazing at a pool of water
mesmerised
held captive by the shimmering images
a leaf falls gently
ripples
like thoughts
like time
fan across the pool
ideas, taking lives of their own
getting larger
untill they reach the edge

ok, have a great day and make it a productive one!
