Zei Gezunt That means
Be well in Yiddish.
Blessings for Easter And Passover!
Your Ad goes here! Only kidding! Welcome to another try at writing about LIFE politics and whatever else. Complications are a daily part of life,the thing is not to get overwhelmed in whats happening,but to take a step back--- Humor is a great tool to find perspective...

Trying to have time and energy to share my musings and LOVE for Music and the many who create the energy of love and creation!!. So Bringing ya the stuff from my orb!!!! Enjoy the music! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDVUb50OPTaE-dErnXeUnCw
| Good morning Y'all,from Washington State.
I'm slowly getting back into my new life. Even in the midst of world and person loss events. Time waits for no one and just keeps ticking away. Thinking just now about that Steve Miller song from many moons ago...
" Time keeps on ticking ticking into the future..." I want to fly like an Eagle to the sea,Fly like an Eagle let my spirit carry me.
Yep that about covers it at the moment.
( As I try to remember to save and edit!) I'm always writing things off the top of my head and sometimes whole pages are gone in a second. Then its Oh s#*T! Too late its gone.
Even though I have read this very helpful warning on the bottom of where I'm writing this
Remember: Be safe and protect your writing from accidental loss.
Use the "Save And Edit" feature often when composing long entries!
I still lose it! maybe I should put up a post it note,(Then I think all mine are gone for now.
All things that were mine most gone too.
It's okay will replace slowly in time.)
Life is not always how we want it.
It is NOT a straight line. It is NOT a stair case - It is a Roller Coaster at best.
We are NOT given a How To guide at our birth!
Or when we give birth to our children.
Hopefully we know enough by the time our Grand-kids are born!
Even then we are learning if we are smart and pay attention!
(By now have "Saved and Edit 7 times!)
Am writing for many types of readers! Newbie writers,friend-writers here on Writing.com,family and friends on facebook!(Save # 8!)
Over the past 15 or so years,have experimented with the positive possibility of the (then) new tool of the Web. I tried so many writing sites,(WDCom was the first one that gave me faith to take my words out of books and paper,and try them on the medium of the internet!)
I made blogs on Blogger and so many sites-Always to come home to here...
Where people care and share and help each other here!
Hi It's later,been working on a lot of planning my Organizational stuff crusades !
Have to do Spring cleaning of my port here! (Portfolio)
Make Folders for subjects.
So can add Poems together,or Psychology Etc
In each! (Later can gather the few Journals I was able to save out of the hundreds lost) And combine.
I wrote the above earlier. Have been looking at pleasant things online.Dealing with a lot and trying to keep it together step by step.
Zei Gezunt be well Yall! Until next time Chow!
|(After hearing the song was thinking of This Covid reality and many things.)
Wrote a long entry here,and didn't save it. In a second all the writing was gone. (The Buddhist say everything is temporary,and to enjoy each moment.) I was so in the moment of reaching out to others,expressing myself in a positive way. (In the midst of a personal loss this week of my Grandson Tristin Koda. He loved to skateboard and was so amazing at it. He was funny and kind and thought of others. I miss him like hell and can't bring myself to write beyond that here.)
I saw the Inspirational challenge to listen to the above song and write about what it brought out in ourselves to write about.
Thinking about it and being the caring safe community we have here commented
"I'm going to try this.I hope to come up with something after. Really need something like this (Don't we all?) On a personal note I lost a grandchild this weekend. He would have been 21 this week. I'm Sure Tristin would want me to.Thankful for so many folks including here,who have been great folks new and old friends here over the years.Trying to get back here all the time.Blessings for prayers.ox
A stranger and KIND soul sent me an email saying "she was so sorry and was praying for my family and I. It was such a heartfelt message,and I wrote "thanks so much for the kindness and prayers."
She is also is a writer and wanted to find a "silver lining" for us and all of us going through these changes in this current time,and in my situation.
Was also trying to write about The Better day song we listened to by New Republic,in a challenge here on WDC. I replied that " You taking the time to do that IS ALL OF OUR SILVER LININGS!
Ironic that This writing moment is bringing so many people together here On Writing.com,Bless this wonderful place and all who give so much to others.
Helping each other through these dark daze,that in time WILL END. We will be able to be normal again. In the meantime lets be good and true to each other. That IS making our BETTER DAYS TO COME.
To share our talents (safely!) Sewing Masks for Healthcare workers or elderly,or the homeless. Sharing our photos or writing. Even writing a letter to show we care. Sharing a smile or Thank you to the cashier or Pharmacy Worker. Every drop makes an ocean and a GOOD SEA OF KARMA.
MY feelings are up and down depending on the moment,happy to think of good times and memories. Happy to be thankful for the good folks that are in my life. There is good if we just look for it. Thanks for being here.d
Hello again,from remote Village INC! Lol. So while I revisit not re--live the past (as a very wise Shrink taught me) My personal issues will get turned into a Self-help book on many subjects. For now am holding off with some writing projects. Working on things that get me more focused rather then unfocused. Negative Toxicity Imprinting, comes from others around us. Some gets projected on people (as in a bullying situation,not limited to Children causing it. Adults do it also.)
can take years to work through. Being creative and productive and appreciated,can do miracles.
Wishing Y'all the best till later!
|Below is a post from one of my blogs. Am trying hard to get back in the riding saddle.
Some moments are better than others. Thanks for being there,y'all know who ya are♡☆!
|So I'm once again putting the pieces of my life together. Dealing with a world of covid-19 reality and getting through my own personal hurricane's.
Every time I start writing again, major changes happen. By the time I get back to it my heart isn't always in it. It takes time and encouragement to get to the place where I can share my thoughts and heart with other's.
This has been a terrible year,yet being in a place where I'm loved and not judged etc.is a big blessing. As is having people long distance who also care.♡☆
I'm praying to be able to be the writer person again. Bringing light and laughter to serious issues.
Its a big deal today writing this for me. I almost didn't try at all.
This too shall pass as they say.
" The journey of 10,000 miles begins with one step" Lao Tzu.
Today is another Tuesday.
Not my favorite day of the week. I lost my baby brother on a Tuesday. Two weeks ago my 10 month pup Jackson died as I felt his spirit passing literally.
The hanged man card in the Tarot means "things are out of control of one's hands"
The image is a man who is being held up by one ankle while upside down.
In some decks it shows a peaceful face of acceptance.
As if waiting for the time to find the way again.
In my life it's very complicated. There are many layers of things going on at once.
Some won't be mentioned now. I'm in a time of transition. Planning where to make changes for the better.
Considering writing a self help book on dealing with loved ones who can also be toxic.
|Slowly my words are coming back.
Slowly crept passing through loss and emptiness.
Slowly the void is passing through and behind me.
Part of me wants to write about how this roller coaster of time creeping by has been.
Part wants to forget,yet everything is different now.
So much has changed,so much love was taken from me.
So much love has come back to me as well.
Family and friends have come to my aid as I felt immeasurable feelings of tragic loss.
Along with so many kind gentle strangers who also know the pain of loss. Loss of Fur Babies,and feather and scale Babies.
They did not minimize what I am feeling. And post words of sincere understanding,seeing how adorable my Jackson was and shall always be.
Even in my pain and suffering,researching how others deal with this.
Sooo many reached out.I'm trying to thank them all.And also for the wonderful cards on screen of understanding,faith gratitude.
In time will share more,if you like please visit Jackson's rescue page and like,he would be happy to know even more people care about the plight of homeless animals. God/G-d bless y'all thax!
A Humanity rescue for Jackson the puppy
|This is the worst New year I can remember in many years. Everything is going wrong,unexpected heartbreak yesterday. I don't know how I can even write about this.
I hope this pastes,so you can understand more.
As a person who has written (nothing famous) still over 60 years. I know my words and ideas will come back,like a memorial story about Jackson M.(Miracle) Mississippi the puppy who was alone hot,covered with mange,drinking water with oil from the Greyhound buses,whence we found him last August 9 TH,2019. Yesterday I was there when his spirit left his ten month old body and brushed past me.
|Hi folks! To tell the truth, I'm happy to be writing to a bunch of writer's that get how hard writing really is...
I got back to Mississippi last Thursday the 10,Th.
It was not an easy ride leaving on Friday January 3rd, Eugene the following Monday. Back on the bus same day, but it needed to be done,to make sure our granddaughter and service 🐕
Was ok and home.
She'll be going back to school,and little by little, I'm learning how to reach out and ask for help from writers to review my attempts at a book.
For now am calling it 1982 part of the decades of dizzyness series.
I've been posting on Facebook,and for the most part, unless it's another writer,good luck spilling your guts out with your writing hoping somebody will see something and say something!
Facebook is more like showing people hey look where I ate dinner or we're on vacation. It's not a bad thing We can send hugs across miles,but it seems to me like two of my pages have too many people on it I really can appreciate everybody's feed, yet too much input is too much. Though I go to check and see if anybody was trying to touch base with me on a friends or family level, I'm spending more time my Facebook made years ago and have very little people there. Today spent more time on writing. Com, than have in a Very long while. I've really been enjoying reviewing people's work again. And in the process of finding people who will resonate with what my crazy style is! LOL
I've been praying that God will help me write this book and I know other people will have to help me as well.
In reading a review of how to review by Lilly, sometimes random things happen. I called them synchronicities,because they are meant to lead us in the right direction.
It helped me to decide that I need to ask people and give them gift points to help my writing get better. To weed out the flaws, and not get so upset like I used to when first starting writing here. I once took a writer's digest writing class it was for writing nonfiction.
The instructor was very helpful yet I was crushed, I didn't know how to take criticism and not take it personally.
Though I was doing a good job in my content, there was a lot I had to learn this was the year 1997. The year we move to Georgia from Oregon and sadly the year that we lost princess Diana.
I thank you for your time be well and happy.
Once again to be continued
|Hey just a few words before I get a bit of rest. Up since 6 am, it's been jam packed busy since my last post in December.Now on my way to bring our granddaughter home w her service dog.
Will take me a week to make the trip. The good thing is, I'm working on putting together my ebook. I'm doing the whole thing, from writing to the fonts,and all that goes along with it!
I've been doing all I can to do a book, for years. My family comes first,and I'm asking God to help me do to this. So hold on to your hats,this is my crazy real life! Hugs
