You Sexy Thing – Coming Out

sexy me
After I became a mother I also became modest. No skirts above the knees, my cleavage properly tucked behind whatever blouse or sweater I wore. I didn’t paint my pants on and I only wore pumps that were a quarter-inch high. If I had a meeting or dress up affair at work I would paint my face with an unassuming amount of makeup.
When my children became teenagers with busy itineraries. My husband was spending more and more time away from home. Read the rest of this entry »

Not Going to be Stressed

G-son

I am too blessed to be stressed. I know it’s a cliché but it explains why I deleted all the emails that accumulated in my inbox from you fine writers, artist and photographers. I was trying to read and get up to date on each individual blogs. That was like trying to catch up to a race horse that already completed two laps. It felt like I would never catch up. I felt like I was not being true to your blogs if I didn’t read everything you posted. It was stressing me every time I looked at my growing in box. I realized the above statement would be the best mantra for my situation. So I deleted the past week of emails. I will beginning reading again today and go back and read your other post at my leisure.

I posted Secluded Muse  back in the early part of March. My muse wasn’t feeding me any inspirational words of poetry but my creative muse was helping me finish up my novel. I still haven’t completed it but I know how it’s going to end. I also started book two. My novel still doesn’t have a title. Titles have always been a dilemma for me. However I took a hiatus because I had another project to complete.

It is spring break for the elementary school students. Some of you remember G-son from my blog Just Peanut Butter and Jelly  I withdrew my petition for custody because I believed his mother would do the right thing. She did for a few months and then things went back to the way they were. It’s a long story but G-son is still hurting and acting out in school. He was left back last year and is in jeopardy of being left back again this year. You guys know how I feel about my kids. So grandma is spending the week with the kids and trying to get in G-son’s head and help him prepare for his statewide test which will determine his promotion. He’s with his aunt and granddad again.

I was also working on scrapbooks for my grandchildren my deadline was Friday. That was a last-minute decision otherwise I would have had another week, since I was going to give the books to the kids for Easter. I was anxious to see their reaction so I gave them the books last night. The books were/are a hit. Their eyes lit up and they smiled brighter than the sun during a heat wave. They looked at the old pictures and laughed. Later in the evening each of them at different times sat down and read the quotes I collected and pasted in the books.
Now all I need is for my muse to return from her vacation and fill me with poetic words to thrill and delight you guys with.
Thanks for your patience and for continuing to read my writing.

Hugs!!

The Best Display of Humanity

I’m working on a poem about seeing the best in humanity and saw this on FaceBook this morning. I didn’t read the subtitles to know the universal sound and sight of compassion. Please watch. I dare you not to be overwhelmed.

Who’s the animal

A Fruit Salad Tree! Different fruits grow on one tree.

The horror
There are over seven billion people on this earth. Through science we are living longer. Over a hundred years ago most of our food was raised on farms or hunted. Fruits and vegetables were grown on these same farms. Or the farmers traded with each other. The animals were treated with compassion. Fed and allowed graze or roam around the farm. They were killed before being skinned and butchered for meat.

Our fruits and vegetables were grown seasonally. We had to wait for the summer for melons, tomatoes, cucumbers and avocado’s to name a few. In the last ten years we are able to get whatever we want no matter what time of year it is.

Today our fruits and vegetables are being altered. It started with seedless grapes, then seedless oranges now we have seedless watermelons. It is unnatural. I received my Carol Wright magazine http://www.carolwrightgifts.com/

What I saw really disturbed me. A cherry bush and a tomato tree, for those who don’t know tomatoes grow on vines and cherries grow on trees. Remember George Washington couldn’t tell a lie he chopped down the cherry tree. A tree that grows different kinds of fruits and different color peppers growing on one plant. This is science fiction at its best. We don’t know what we’re putting in our bodies. We get fruit and vegetables imported from other countries and don’t know what kinds of insecticides they are using. A lot of insecticides are banned in the US but are we still safe?

What about this abomination a tomato plant grows above ground and potatoes grow below ground.
I understand the reason for altering fruits and vegetables is to mass produce to feed the billions of people. But shouldn’t the quality of food be considered. We don’t know the long term effects of these foods. On a spiritual level, is man trying to prefect what God has already created perfect?

As I stated above our meat use to come from farms or was hunted and killed. Today the animals are being injected and feed hormones to make them bigger which will enable one animal to feed twice as many people. Is it okay when a little girl at five years old starts growing breast or twelve year old boys growing breast? If you give animals hormones and we eat the animals we are affected.

If that isn’t bad enough there are fillers add to meat in the United States. It’s called pink slim. It is meat products that were once used to make pet food. It’s the scraps that is scraped together and treat with ammonia, frozen and sold as filler. Well start barking because it’s in our meat. Especially in fast food restaurants check out the following video. My question is did McDonald really stop using fillers.

Another thing they are doing with the scraps is mixing them with this compound that glues the pieces together. If you watch the following video you will see that the guys are wearing mask and using gloves. It is evidently dangerous so why is it being sold to us to eat and feed our children.

In one of grocery stores I go to, that I won’t name but it is a big chain around this country, but the beef is labeled 90% lean 85% lean. It doesn’t tell you if it’s chuck, sirloin or ground round. I brought meat from them for years and when I saw the meat being labeled like this I was confused. Leaner meat is good for you right? But I don’t think so if it’s mixed with this slime crap.

Now if you don’t care that you’re eating something that you don’t know what the potential harm is down the line then maybe the following video’s will make you think twice. These video’s are from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) http://prime.peta.org/. Please view with caution. I can watch really gory horror movies but this is real life and it brought tears to my eyes and it turned my stomach. It will make you ask the question who are the real animals?

Have you ever noticed elephants look as if they cry? Well watch these video’s of elephants with Ringling Bro.

The following is a baby elephant born unnaturally under Ringling Bros. supervision.

Baby elephant born in a wild life Refuge see the difference between the baby born in the care of Ringling Bros,

Elephants are docile animals. They stay in herds and maintain a family unit. The bulls leave the family when they are old enough but the females stay together. They even mourn their dead.

in awe of illuminating art
on this night, cold and dark
spectacular twinkling light
with embers glowing bright
on the sea of lies, bravely I cross
freeing the consciousness I once lost
you see
truth was disguised and ignorance was taught
love was pure and fear, fear was naught
in its stead illusions of grandeur raised ignorance
and destroyed man’s natural wisdom and awareness
positive energy is amending my adverse behavior
syncing my heart with the beating rhythm of nature
to unveil the realities of my past
as I shed my hideous mask
