WHY AREN’T WE MORE ANGRY???

With all the stuff that is going on in just the states alone we should be angry but in combination with all the things that is happening around the world we should be more than angry we should be ballistic.  People complain because the national statues are hurting their pride but they aren’t slaves maybe their ancestors were but they aren’t it is a part of their history just like it is a part of mine.   I don’t believe a bunch of Civil War statues of old Generals is hurting anyone.

I was also happy to see that the football players decided to stand for the flag this past Sunday and the reasoning for it doesn’t matter just that I agree that they should have a right to protest if they aren’t happy with something but not use there status as big wigs to do it.  Most Americans don’t have that big wig status to make a point so why should the one who do use it to make the same point.

Between Las Vegas which just happened on Sunday and all the other shootings around the country it has become an a major problem and I am praying that it stops before too much longer.  This last shooting in Las Vegas was well thought out cause how many times can he go out of your room and get all those guns back in his room without being seen unless he have thought it out.  He had a lot of weapons in his room.

We has Americans need to stop all the crap and quit worry so much about the statues, slavery issues which aren’t happening in this century, and start banding together as one nation under God and have one goal which is to love one another and take care of one another instead of killing each other or fighting each other.  That is all I can say.  Because it does no good to lecture anyone and nothing is solve by doing it either.

There I am in the paper #37 — My thoughts on a page.

Another article from my column in the Irish Examiner’s Feelgood, featuring the seventh member of our house…the dog. Enjoy. (Oh and her name is not fluffball, she just didn’t give me permission to print her real name) I believe there are three types of people in the world, those who love cats, those who love […]

The Story of an Owl, And Why I Am Afraid We Are Doomed.

Bless you Tom Demerly this is wonderful and sad at the same time. For owls are both wise and beautiful and for them to die like that in the street is so sad but he was not alone which was very good.

 It was like the beginning of a favorite new song. It began quietly, and you could barely hear it. The soft cooing of a distant sound, a trilling that seemed reassuring and comforting. The world was safe. Everything was all right. It was home and warm and nature surrounded our little neighborhood. I listened to it in bed, shushing my girlfriend with our heads on the pillows, “Listen!” I whispered. There was silence in the dark. Then the gentle spring breeze carried the rising song. “It’s an owl! Can you hear it?” She did. “That’s a good sign. They trap mice and are good for the environment and the neighborhood. He probably lives at the end of the block down by the park.”

We drifted off to sleep to his quiet, lilting song. It made for an easy transition to dreams of rolling, wooded…

On Death…. and on Living

I have always loved your blog because you write what you want and I believe you will live you live as you chose as well. I am so sorry for all your losses and know that each loss is like losing a part of your family because they are a part of your family. Take care my friend and always live life on your terms and be better for it.

I’ve been thinking about death lately.

img_7997 It’s hard to believe they’re both gone, and yet life goes on.

Both June Buggie and Rumpy were sick, and I knew death was coming. Malachi, on the other hand, died suddenly.

I wonder what my death will be like… and when it will be. I’ve known my entire life that one day would be my last. But lately I’ve been closely in touch with my humanity.

One day Rumpy was here; the next he was gone. Same with June Buggie. Yet as much as I miss them, life has gone on. The same will happen when I die.

As I ponder the realities of death, I also think about my life. So much of my life has been spent either trying to fit in, or feeling bad about myself because I don’t. I am a square peg trying to fit into a round hole…

“People mocked her. Until the day they all started imitating her.” Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (2017)

a great review Roy.

Reel Roy Reviews

By Source, Fair use, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?curid=50496657 [Image Source: Wikipedia] There’s “Something There,” all right. Disney’s 2017 live action Beauty and the Beast is an absolute delight. Maybe I just needed a movie like this right here, right now, but this update spoke to my heart and soul and had me staying through every last bit of the credits, with tears streaming down my cheeks and a big smile on my face.

I’ve been agnostic about the artistic need (not the commercial one) for the unyielding march of Disney’s flesh-and-blood remakes/reinventions, since the runaway success of the garishly underwhelming Alice in Wonderland. True, each subsequent entry has improved upon the last, from the DOA Oz the Great and Powerful to the well-cast if underwritten feminism of Maleficent, from the poignant but ultimately forgettable Cinderella to the sparkling eco-parable The Jungle Book, culminating in last summer’s exemplary if underappreciated Pete’s Dragon.
