In So Many Words | An Exploration in Metrical Writing … By OAPlascencia.

I know I have posted before on Oscars blog.  However I really love his poems even though some times I just don’t understand.   That is not his fault, it is mine.  He writes often of dark stuff, and I am lucky to have not only have left the dark in my life behind, but to have others build up shields for me.   Yes I know sometimes I break down and go cry for a while, but the point is Oscars poems are so full of imagery that every one can enjoy them and like me sometimes relate them to things that Oscar never meant.  Recently I have been inspired to write things for other people, and it was Oscars work that gave me the idea.  Not that I could do as well as he can.  However he has given me the idea to try.  I hope you will both go to his blog and read his works, and also give your self credit and give speaking of your life, your hopes, dreams, love, and other things as Oscar does.   Hugs

A Former U.S. Prison Chief Visits A Norwegian Jail. He Cannot Believe What He Sees.

A Former U.S. Prison Chief Visits A Norwegian Jail. He Cannot Believe What He Sees..

If I post nothing else today , this post is worth it.   This is the most important post I can make.  The reason is because it shows the difference we in America have in how we view life,  the human life, how we view people.   Watch both videos.   The second one the guy says he would want someone found guilty of hurting his family to pay, to be stripped of all dignity, rights, all worth, to suffer.  He wants revenge.   That is what our prisons are for, and we have a huge prison population, it is for profit, we make money off housing people in sub human conditions.  There system is about taking some one and showing them what they did was wrong, and how not to do it again, showing the inmate how to be a good member of society, to be productive, to live with out harming others again.

I can tell you the approach I like, which one I agree with.   I want things in our country to change.  I want it to be better.   I want hope back for my people.

Open carry children. I see guns in a public place, I am leaving.

Filed under: opinion, Political — Scottie @ 11:33

When middle-aged “open-carry” activists walk into Kroger with semi-automatic rifles slung over their shoulders, they aren’t exercising their rights with an ethic of responsibility. They’re trying to intimidate their way to respect and esteem. They’re acting out, demanding attention and rejecting curbs on their desires. That’s not being a citizen. It’s being a toddler.

Kirk Cameron: Halloween masks mocking Obama celebrate Jesus defeating Satan

Kirk Cameron: Halloween masks mocking Obama celebrate Jesus defeating Satan.

I get angry about lies and distortions.  I can understand when Native Indians complain about people stealing their rituals and using them with out really understanding what they mean or are about.   In this case I just wish people would educate themselves, this guy is so far off.  He wants it to be , he thinks his religion is the all of everything and the supreme thing in life, so it can’t be wrong and he there fore can not be wrong.  However he is.   Again this is a case where the oppressive church wants to pretend to be the victim.  Here is the truth of it.   sorry Kirk, the truth shall set you free.   Hugs

Historians universally recognize Halloween’s origins as dating back to the Celtic festival of Samhain, in which the ghosts of the dead were said to return to Earth for one night. It wasn’t until over 600 years later that Pope Boniface IV incorporated the pagan festival into the tradition of All Martyrs Day. And historians believe that the church created the All Saints Day celebration 400 years later in an attempt to replace the festival of Samhain.

5 More Women Accuse Marissa Alexander’s Husband Of Brutal Abusive

Filed under: News, opinion, Political, Race — Scottie @ 12:47

Incredible and horrifying.  Here is a woman who fired into the air to stop her enraged husband from hurting her after giving birth, maybe killing her as he threatened to do, and she got found guilty.   This is the famous stand your ground state.  Yet she is black and so she is guilty.   Again it is a travesty of justice, and the more that I read about it, the more information that comes out, the clearer it is that she was not given a fair trail nor a fair sentence.   Hugs

‘Duck Dynasty’ Star: You Can’t Catch STDs From ‘Biblically Correct Sex’

Filed under: opinion, Religion — Scottie @ 17:04

I post this as a warning.  I don’t want to see any young person taken in by this bull.  The fact is this man has not been to med school, and seems not to be able to read or watch informative news items.   All of them clear say that you can get a std by any sexual activity or method involving someone who has an std.   Please learn health before you endanger your self listening to crazy people.

I need a way out

Filed under: Ideas, My Life and Rants, opinion, People I like, Questions — Scottie @ 11:19

I need a way out.

Please read the post at the link above.  I have felt like this many times.   I have a friend, a really special friend I so love, who is going through this right now.   This says the way she is feeling far better than I could.  For my self, Vicky gave me the best idea and way to help my self stay away from the trapped feeling.  First remember I have lots of friends who would go the extra mile and a lot more to help me.  Second to keep in balance in life.  If I feel anxious, anger, depression, fear, hurt , and despair then I am out of balance in my self.   So she suggested I reach out to Mother Earth.  Now some may ask how does an atheist believe in Mother Earth.   Even an atheist knows about the energy in the universe and the energy that surrounds the planet and all living things.  Scientist tell us all the time about both dark matter and dark energy, which they can see, can’t track, can’t explain, but can prove it is there.   Well that is Mother Earth for me.  The energy that surrounds this planet is not explained and I don’t need it to be.  I would like it to be, but I don’t need it.  Why, because I am druid, and Wicca enough to feel it, interact with it, and have it both help guide me and I can use it to help achieve things I try to do.  For those my age it is like the force in Star Wars for me, and I am a very JR Jedi.   

So I have taken to including in my morning routine the opening the window blinds and when possible the windows.  I sit quietly in mediation until I feel the connection with the energy of the Earth, Mother Earth.   Then I simply start talking, either in my mind or verbally.  Not a wish list of oh I want and do for me.  I wouldn’t do that in a conversation with my human or animal friends and so why should I do that with my energy friends.   I simply say hello.  I keep an image of what I plan to do, how I could use energy for that task, the people in my life and those I would love to introduce the energy to and them to the energy.  By the time I am done I find I am full of the energy of Mother Earth, I find my senses are more alive, I am full of the energy and I feel connected to everything and everyone.    

This is my way of staying balanced and in the postive, staying full of the needed energy.  It is my routine.  However you may have your own.  I knew a man that got up before dawn every morning to care for tons of plants around his house, and that was his meditation and his way of balance.    I hope you can find yours.   I wish I could help this wonderful person in need.   Hugs
