Life is like a roller coaster so hold on to your sanity and soul to cope w/ life!
Hi Y'all during these days (daze) Of Covid,to mask or not to mask ,What a question?! |
We all will get through it,and helping each other up is the best way..
Am doing all I can to continue my writings here and friendships new and older!
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 what's happening ,but to take a step back--- Humor is a great tool to find perspective...
Wow what a strange trip this life o mine ( & others to be sure) continues to be...
It's hard to be a writer, though as Steven King wrote in his book "On Writing"("Writing is done one word at a time.")
I never forget those wise words.
I read that book 📚 many times since it came out.
Lost copy's over the years,in life's storms.
(Last year when a very ancient tree fell on our rental in Mississippi during a storm.)
I've learned " Write about what you know" also good advice.
Yet for myself (and others) in my personal life and experiences.
It's a challenge to focus on one topic,when my interests lie in many subjects.
It's also a challenge to produce with issues like ( non military) PTSD Etc 🙏. It's a very real condition and not easy to forget.
I've been in Therapy for 40 years.
Some of them sucked,or were too inexperienced to be dealing with sensitive issues,that was light years beyond their comprehensive.
Some have been Angel's,who shed light on things,I didn't know,let alone understand.
They were my teachers and as close to a good friend,as far as the rules of professional boundaries would allow.
Some went beyond when my circumstances were indeed dire and chose to be caring humans 🙏🕯️🌹
It takes a lot to raise grandkids and live in this world,that has changed so much in the past 60+ years.
A bag of groceries in the 1960's was five bucks,with eggs,bread,tuna tomato,etc plus candy bars and a pack of cigarettes for my mom. I got to keep the change...
To be continued, someone needs my help.
Everytime I find myself here, it's with the hope and belief it will be a constant thing.
Fate comes and it's not the right time.
There are more journeys waiting for me.
More experiences and things to be learned, before they can be shared.
Or only some folks hear at the moment.
I'm hoping to combine this blog with my fledgling website Sea of good Karma here too.
I've met so many wonderful people,and am thankful we live in a time,that we can connect to help each other,and others in our world 🌍.
Will be coming don't miss it 🤗✒️🕯️🌊⚖️🙏🐕🎉👽🎶🕊️😻
Hi y'all 👋😍 It's been another loony tune week!
Full of hard work (moving), and many blessings.A hug from my beautiful/kind/smart Granddaughter Trinity and her hug saying "I Love you Grandma" warmed my soul,as I left to go to the next leg of life's adventure!
And caring for my kitty moonbeam till we find a house. ( He adopted me)
Will miss rest of critters.
My daughter J of course!
I'm doing this on my new phone so there will be part two.
A bully bus driver getting disciplinary action.After his actions on Monday.
A new pair of comfy Minnetonka boots!
Today after physical therapy!
|Hi Y'all and Blessings to old friends and new! Welcome to Dee Dee's world and hopes for a kinder world.
This is a Blog started a long while ago. Some are familiar with my writing over the past 20 years. Some are new and all are welcome if don't bite!
Being honest don't mean being mean. This world is in a big flux and the time for coming together and helping each other is now. Understanding what the great ones have taught us through the centuries,In Bible,Torah and many others great teachers. Are things we should seek out. How to be a community not how to tear apart each others.
It's been nutz with me. So as they say "Hows by you"?.
Seems like it's always something!
Am just trying to process this past year alone.Like most of us?!
Seems like time can be like a Record with a scratch on it.Your listening to a song that skips ahead to other notes. Leaving missing parts of notes behind.Just bumped ahead,unexpectedly.
You start to write something like a blog post. All of a sudden so much has happened that you can't remember what the first thing was about,because so much has changed since then.
Some of us Boomers know the R.Crumb Comix! What does it mean Mr. Natural? He sez "It don't mean Sheeit!
And Folks that"s a big ole part of the whole situation in the world today.
That some care and others "Don't give a Sheeit".(Even if they say they do-whats the actions really say?)
Our world has always been a complicated mess,no matter how one thinks it began. In the words of Led Zepplin,The song remains the same.
My last post was April 5th,the day before my Churusa (Hebrew Teacher) passed away.
We were good friends and studied What it meant to be Jewish,(from her Orthodox upbringing)
She respected me even though my upbringing was more Un-Orthodox! That's so the truth.
A mixture of Half "Meatball and half Matzo ball" Jewish and Italian,with little (a bissel means a little bit or Grandmother in Yiddish!).
Hope Y'all have a great blessed week. I may add to this later or make another post!
| 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.
