At this stage in my existence, having lead several different kinds of lives with people here and abroad, I want to make more beautiful memories,especially with the people I love.
Hate, racism, and cruelty,emotions that seem to be a thread in many of the social media comments leave me with a feeling of abandonment.
Yes,I know what is going on in the world.
No, I am not sticking my head into the sand.
But, I want to surround myself with hope and the anticipation of experiencing the wonderful, positive, loving aspects of my fellow human beings.
Thanks to PurpleRays for this reminder of our priorities.

Not in looks.
Not in what they say.
Just in what they are.”

nubile ideas dripping ecstasy

all it takes is to drop off

the crone at the door
cheap enough for a few
thrilling hours in arms
of a lover-for-hire

Thanks to the English Professor for the irresistible cue.
Amidst the flurry, blurry days of campaigning, I came across this quote by former
President Harry Truman:
“My choice early in life was either to be a piano player in a whorehouse or a
politician. And to tell the truth, there’s hardly any difference.”
Now, THERE’S food for thought.
The Purple Rays blog says it succinctly and sincerely.
To our brothers and sisters in Belgium,
and all other countries in need,
we are with you.
