Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Fiḍál (Grace), 10 Raḥmat (Mercy) 175 B.E. - Tuesday, July 3, 2018
Mind and soul play together,
with words on a looped theme.
Alternately stretching rhyme and rhythm
over the fingers of stanza and line.

My response to "Spiritual Newsletter (July 4, 2018)" : "I no longer watch news on television. I get the majority of my news online through huffingtonpost.com, cnn.com, theguardian.com, and the local television stations or newspaper websites. The online news sites are not any different from those I would watch on television, the advantage--for me--is the ability to stop reading or watching in the middle of a news story when I feel my frustration and blood pressure rising. After I have calmed down by saying a prayer, I can go back to the item if I need more information from it or I can check one of the other websites for an article on the same topic, but by a different reporter."
