Dystopian… for the life of me I was trying to think of that word today as it relates to apocalyptic imagery. It was inspired by the song “It’s The End Of The World” by REM. Granted dystopian and apocalyptic don’t always have to go together but they do seem like good friends. Dystopian or dystopia are words that are not in everyday conversation, at least in my corner of the world and I am extremely glad for it if you know what I mean.
It’s frustrating when you know a word and it won’t seem to make it to your mouth. I suppose I had other things to be worried about and the word dystopia wasn’t all that important at the time.
Now is the time that the act loving your country be redefined. It is easy to wave a flag, go to a cookout, wear national colors. What is more difficult is to serve your fellow citizens, respect your neighbors for who they are and care about their well being as you do your own. It’s more than going to war it also means striving for peace in ones own communities.
Putting in the work to make your country the best it can be tough but through some sweat and sacrifice much can be accomplished. Nothing worth doing can be done with catch phrases and slogans. It requires a lot of dedication and so much more.
All these things can be applied just about anywhere in the world. None of this means being a nationalist because there is a larger global community in which each of us belongs to. No country or its citizens can truly go it alone.
You may have your independence, but you are still dependent on one another. Freedom’s bell cannot ring unless life, liberty, and happiness is guaranteed for all, no matter what.
Six years ago I registered a domain and hosting with WordPress.com planting my flag in this great blogging community. Thanks to all who have found their way here in one way or another. I appreciate your interest and curiosity. The connections I have made over the years has expanded my horizons and understanding of life in general
I am not a big fan of Tuesdays and this particular one wasn’t the best, just like last Tuesday. Can Tuesday’s be removed from the calendar? It turns out that some Monday’s are actually better. Go figure.
My domain is renewed for another year of blogging and fun. Sure, WordPress has had some interesting developments but I am good to roll with the punches. Connection, communication and conversation are important things when blogging and I am glad I have a platform to do all that here.
Thanks to you all for continuing to support me, like my posts and connect here. Keep on blogging good people. Love and peace.
Today I was looking at my blog and I discovered I haven’t written a long-form post in awhile. Usually, my posts are short and concise because I am not a prolific writer. Sure there is plenty to discuss in the world but maybe there is too much to chose from. It’s my goal to chronicle and curate the sacred, serious, and silly things going on in my head.
Sometimes that means a picture, a video, a quote, or other sorts of media that can get my point of view across. Paying attention to stuff can be the best inspiration for my blog posts and I do hope they are interesting or at least tolerable to the reader. I do try to be aware of the fluid attention span of those who visit.
I enjoy stringing words together to form sentences like the next person but sometimes it can be tedious to write for writing’s sake. I do have a post about talking rattling around in my head and the irony there is that I am going to write about it. Let’s see how that goes.
This post is not even as long as some I come across so you can see what I am talking about here.
All any of us can do is to keep on blogging, keep on writing, keep on posting. As in life, we have to keep on keeping on.
To all those connecting here I appreciate your time to visit this small part of the blogosphere. You are always welcome here and I hope I am welcome on your screens of all sizes. Let us all keep on blogging good people.
