February Is Black History Month #BlackHistoryMonth

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. There are also recognitions of Black History Month in Canada, United Kingdom and The Netherlands. You cannot tell the story of a nation without Black stories being heard. I am glad to learn more and to be a part of this.

A Forgotten Post

Sometimes you have a great idea to post about and when you go to write it out the idea is just gone, vanished into the weird network of ones brain. I tend to blog from the heart and soul but the brain is a vitally important part of the whole thing. Maybe I will remember that opus I was going to post about sometime. Perhaps it will change the world for the better. Perhaps it will inspire someone. Perhaps.

Thought Of The Day 011421

A silly or stupid sense of humor will get you through 2021. Dad jokes and other nonsense might just save us all. Humanity and humor are needed now more than ever. It’s more than OK to laugh. It’s good for the soul or sole.

My Last Post Of 2020

Good People,

This is the last post of 2020. It has been quite the year and we all have struggled in one way or another. Some how we made it throughout the year and I feel lucky having done so. Whatever comes our way in the future lets be supportive and kind. My friends, may we have peace in the coming year.

Also, wear your masks, we still have a pandemic out there.

Your Friend,

Tony

Pre-Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanksgiving in America is a time for families of all types and friends of all types coming together to give gratitude for the things they have in this life. Granted it has a problematic past when you look at it with 21st century eyes and sensibility.

I will admit a lot has happened since that first Thanksgiving celebration that has not been good. However, I believe it can be a positive holiday for people where you can remember the past but forge a new future. In the days we live in being grateful is important.

For those celebrating where they are not fully accepted for one reason or another, I hear you and you have my support. Some folks cannot go home because they have been kicked out for living their truth on their own terms. LGBTQ folks especially. May your future be one of reconciliation and restoration.

As you observe and celebrate remember those who have been lost due to illness, violence, racism, and the Coronavirus. Many tables will have spaces where loved ones a year ago were celebrating. Much has changed since 2019 and I understand that fully.

Be good to one another. Seek peace and mercy as we head into this holiday season. lean on one another and be kind. Love to you all good people. Remember a big table is better than a small one.

I will do my best to lighten things up here on the blog coming up. But as in anything life will have its say which influences what you see here.
