An Unusual Plot


Happy Tuesday!

Remember last week when I shared the bare photos of the creek near my house? I had taken those photos on April 30th. The above picture is taken in the same spot as those others, and I took this one on May 17th. Voila! Magic.

So, I’ve been tossing around talking to my favorite bloggers about the novel I’m working on.

It was one of those days. You know, when things just don’t seem to be going right. I don’t mean that everything was going wrong, really. Physical things actually went pretty smoothly. It was my interactions with humans that took a turn for the worse that day.

Curiosity, Challenge and Acceptance

I really don’t know how to lie. It comes naturally for me to speak my truth, and yes, sometimes it gets me in trouble.

Lessons from the Leaves and a few Friends

My fellow bloggers . . . you are amazing. To all of you who read and commented on my post, Too Much Darkness, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your comments soothed my soul.

The comments got me thinking deeper. I could feel that all of you felt as I do, hurt down to the core for what is happening in our society (terrorizing attacks), but you knew better how to move on. I was stuck in place.

My blog’s most common theme is to look in inward for answers to anything outward that is troubling. So, I asked myself, why am I so driven to find answers about the Las Vegas tragedy? Why can’t I move forward?

Too Much Darkness

Media pushes buttons
Setting tempers ablaze
To remain neutral and kind
Is hard these days

Where are we as a people
Do we really know
Do we want to hurt each other
Or is the vitriol just a show

Am I living in a movie
Where society has gone wrong
Please tell me we’re being fooled
that humans are really caring and strong

I recently discovered Twitter. Yeah, I know, I’m late to the party. But boy, I thought Facebook was bad with the vitriol. I found Twitter even worse!

Compassion

Compassion is the spiritual energy that dissolves the negative effects of judgment. ~ Daily Word

Recently I’ve been posting topics about feelings and emotions. I’ve shared my experiences with how emotions have affected my life and what I’ve learned from them. But, there is a lesson I left out.
