” An Update”

January 25, 2016

Imagine this. Just a single day and I am compelled to blog again. Wonders will never cease. Playing devils advocate have to defend myself in what would be my own murphy’s law. Simply to make a long story short though in my case it would be impossible. The previous blogs mentioned a luggage mishap or a near mishap. My stating that numerous times was the fact that the contents were vital to me.
Now waiting for some new checks so I can script a last bill to the unmentionable phone company. The bank mentioned it would take seven to ten business days which is reasonable. Yet anticipating for it and accomplishing this seems like forever in a day or a fortnight which is two weeks if anyone is interested in that bit of information. The answer is relax yeah right that will happen.

” Murphy’s Law”

January 24, 2016

First off it is my dearest cousin’s birthday today. Tim is no longer on this earth yet in the heavens above forever shining inspiration on those closest to him. Everyone knows the well known expression of murphy’s law. One can be the ultimate planner and yet this happens to all regardless. I am no exception. Called the phone company before I moved naturally and then got a bill from them stating that I owed far more than originally. The company assumed that I was using their phone to make matters worse. I was livid to put it mildly. This company will get nothing more than the original statement, furthermore their book keeping is nil and the agents are not communicating between themselves either.
Took a bus from Madison to Milwaukee and then to the airport. Checked two bags paying for the larger piece then proceeded to board the airline to Charlotte. When the plane was taxing the airline attendant came to me and said ” Your second piece of luggage was going to Philadelphia then on to Atlanta. My response wasn’t a “so” and I tried my utmost to remain calm. Then when I came to Charlotte I questioned what the lady stated! Then there was a bit of confusion regarding some red tag bags that didn’t concern me. Boarded the plane to Atlanta then went to the baggage claim and saw my larger piece, tried to grab it yet it was spinning around and a lady got it for me or at least slowed it down so I could grab it. Then I went to the American Airline office and filled out a lost claim explaining the situation. She said that the last plane was coming in from Philadelphia at midnight. The time now was 9:15 on scheduled. So I waited and thought to myself. Called Shon then James and the time was ticking. Really didn’t mind in the least. Fast forwarded it was midnight. Recognized and saw the piece of luggage and was elated. After all that contained my personal items and my computer. In closing let me say that the Hayes family: Shon, James, Jamie, Jordan, Jenesis were and are very kind nice welcoming me to their home. I felt feel welcome here in Atlanta!

” Resolute”

January 14, 2016

Usually this title refers to a person which per se it does! There’s a new word which means in or of itself! Learned that this week and surprisingly recalling the word then naturally you will misspelled it regardless of how well your spelling is. Dialect has something to do with this, am cognizant of it! First word is French! Everyone including myself have to realize that if you mispronounce this.
There is a hurricane brewing in the Atlantic which at this point in time is far away and it is on the island called a name that begins with A and it has a couple of ZZ in it! Speaking of spelling can pronounce the word but unsure of the spelling. The Hurricane is Alex! It is unprecedented in January.
The most resolute persons on the face of the earth are many to far to mention however lets focus on a group of prisoners that have been unlawfully imprisoned for a number of years. These people have had not a trial of anything that resembles a sense of justice, in fact you might call is an injustice. Now let me state from the onset that I am speaking as a novice. My knowledge comes only from reading the news of all types, national international pertaining to this subject. Ok good I’m back!
Years ago during the Bush administration the country was scared out of their wits. So it was instructed to round up anyone and everyone who resembled anyone who differs from themselves and that is exactly what occurred with not a question asked. These human being were placed on boards with their hands and feet attached and placed confined in cages with the same articles of clothing: they were with yellow clothing which meant they had privileges providing they told the guards what they wanted to hear; otherwise they were dressed the same in orange jumpsuits. The people were from various parts of the world. Might add in the Bush administration they were rounded up like cattle.
Now the Obama administration wants to close this prison! Finally after fourteen years. Hopefully this will happened before the President leaves office.
There is a great documentary pertaining to the handling of these human beings by Sabastian Junger! Which in fact I got part of the knowledge and another fine documentary was by Peter Jennings that served me well for the other part of this knowledge.

” Just At The Start”

January 7, 2016

At this untimely hour of a brand new day and the seventh no less will bring luck of the Irish. Mounds of thoughts are rolling and condensing in the mind of myself so thought it would be perfect to script it down. First of all it would be great to have a cup of coffee in the morning! Shon has coffee so this is the first item, my coffee maker that you so generously gave to me.
Second of all my towels, the two light pink ones and the large towel that Ian and Michele gave to me for a Christmas. You may have the large deep rose colored towel to wrap around you with love.
Third of all my cups especially the soup cup and the cups that you had given to me. Then my silverware, and the item I open tight bottles, or jars continuing in that realm.
Forth of all anything light just like my hats sports ones and some coat hangers. Let’s if you want share them.
Fifth of all my green warm blanket and rose colored comforter the Ian and Michele gave to me.
You could gently wrap my Royal Secret perfume inside the blanket.
Sixth of all my wooden leaf so I can place it on my dresser so it will be more organized.
Seventh of all my the dish towels so I can put one on my dresser to make it look better.
Want to mention at this point the hospitality that has been shown to me by the Hayes family. Many thanks.

” Coming Up The Hill”

January 4, 2016

Welcome to another state 800 miles from my previous state! Yes that is correct! The voyage here was unforgettable
and simply tiring yet good for all concerned. It is very scenic and has many hills also! Took a Badger bus to Milwaukee then took a flight to Charlotte then on to Atlanta which was the destination and another 13 miles to Stone Mountain. Had one of my luggage diverted to Philadelphia then believe this the last flight was midnight and there it was. Yelled to someone to get it and told the American attendant that it was found after filling out a lost baggage claim. Then I was gratified for it has personal items inside and my computer, and speaking of my computer now have wifi and left part of my adapter that plugs to the wall and now a have another one which is a godsend.
Decided at the last moment not to have my bed and tost the bed frame and the head board. There was someone across the hall and he needed a bed and the mattress box springs and the microwave. Had that for 10 years yet still in good shape and usable.
Must mention in this scenario my dearest and best friend in this world. All things are possible with a wonderful caring kind friend most definitely sweet person! Unforgettable that’s what you are! Unforgettable both near or far. He may finish that song. He has a natural knack for songs.

” Incognito”

December 12, 2015

Many in the entertainment music industry uses names which signifies an incognito sense of identity. Some using a one word name, and furthermore this practice comes in the journalistic world as well. Writers using pen names to have a popular way or easier form of recognition.
An English Song goes as follows: Christmas is coming. The goose is getting fat. Please put a penny in the old man’s hat. If you haven’t got a penny. Then a hey penny will do. If you haven’t got a hey penny then God bless you. This festive song and lyrics are sung in unison with a single person singing the first line then the next person singing then second line while the first is slowly humming then the following person tuning in and the forth person joining and all is unison saying the last line and all repeating it. Seems like a merry joyful way to have a good time. Speaking of that thinking the derivation of the word Christmas is the following: Christmas starts with Christ and the last three letters is the sacrificial symbol celebration of Mass, then leaving the last letter off and creating the word Christmas.
Took all my harmony emails and transferred them to a google email before creating an address, all of my saved secret those stored in a separate place. Now they are all together, photos as well.
Gordon Lightfoot is collaborating with someone and will be singing again. Then Alfie McCourt has finished his second book, entitled” Soul Swimmer” His brother wrote a well known book called Monk Swimmer. So naturally Alfie took a page and advise from his older brother.
This is my December entry. Short Sweet Secure Serene!!!! Enjoy! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all in this fine fabulous world. Joyeux Noelle Et Bonne Annee Let there be Peace on earth and let it begin with me. There For The Grace Of God Go I!!!!

” Keeping Calm”

November 25, 2015

So much to do and yet seems so little time. Trying to use the moments left here wisely. Spending some actual moments with a very close friend keeping calm while inside myself is churning with nerves of steel. There are a number of movies on the horizon which I am with eager anticipation! Trying my best to rid any unnecessary expense. Got another email address and transferred all the harmony emails to google actually forwarded them to the google email and then ask my niece Liz and nephew David to aid me. They were kind enough to give mm a link so I may keep all of my blogs, which are very important to me and they are numerous. Love doing it for the simple reason that it gives a serene feeling and also a bit of learning to add to my knowledge.
My main concern is my son Andre and his health and overall well being. He is very hard working, independent thinker, creative. Working overnight still a manager at a local restaurant. He is working on a book which he originally had as a screenplay. Also he is working on the sequel which is ” Paradise Epilogue”
Actually this blog are bits and pieces of things that are wrapped up tightly in my brain just trying to escape without reason and the thoughts are showing masterly on this page.
Today is the 25th and in a month is Christmas then five more days I will leave for Atlanta. Time is flying so it is apparent that I get everything done beforehand. When I put thoughts into words it seems mind blogging however it really isn’t as I am extremely organized which comes easy for me. The trick is to not get flustered however that is most difficult for me because I am high strung so have to constantly fight against it as most people know that I am a fighter but little do they know that it started on the day of my birth. So now the secret is out!

” Alone Again Naturally”

November 8, 2015

Alone Again Naturally is a well known melodic tune with in depth lyrics by Gilbert O’Sullivan. Thought this was appropriate to my feelings momentarily. Viewed recently a fantastic beautiful in everyway imaginable a movie called “Age of Adeline” written with worthy wonderful meaningful measure, great acting also. Spending timeless moments with my great close friend which is sensational. Having tremendous lifelong friends makes everything worthwhile. That is truly the secret of happiness especially at anytime of existence at whichever age. Persons who can be in your corner is exceptional. Are able to give advice when needed and just be there for moral support is a godsend. Hopefully or could be said is a third a charm. Don’t want to say anything now in hopes that it all will turn out well. Always providing there is a Murphy’s Law! When planning anything, just be aware of that. Moving to Atlanta soon. Went to Doctor Shapiro just about a week ago and said I needed another doctor. He said that he went to Emory University and that made me feel good. So that is well taken with utmost care. Then went to the management and she is going to let me out of the lease of course it stands to reason, I pay November then December and she will let me out in January. Lots of items I have to deal with, though these two were most important. I can deal with pressure if things are planned out in advance.
Still wondering where my son Sweet Andre will go. He has a publisher in Rochester, N.Y. as yet it isn’t a concrete decision. Hoping he will be alright and I trust he will be, yet have mentioned it in passing yet don’t want to put anymore pressure on him as he has enough at the moment. Is still working an overnight shift at a restaurant nearby. Still taking medicine and he’s feeling ok sometimes fine so that is great. Knows when the time is up so that’s all that matters. Trying to stay calm myself have to do a zillion things but the time is right and sometimes it is called the waiting game.
Really looking forward to this experience for adventure however all my ducks have to be in a row to quote a great wonderful Doctor Michael B. Shapiro, actually that is a well known expression.

” Rhetoric”

October 3, 2015

It is now eight minutes past one in the morning a brand new day is on the horizon. There is rhetoric from all of the populous when tragedy occurs when it being on a local, national or scale. People become frustrated with situations that for some reason are uncontrollable yet if people used logic it could become controlled. If incidents are redundant then individuals ossify at the events happening. There are ways of being part of a solution instead of being part of a continuing problem.
Let’s take for instance, homelessness, Guns, drinking while driving. These are all hot button issues. These can or will not be solved overnight. It takes logic. It takes caring not necessarily highly educated people. These subjects are very complicated, takes tenacity.
Of all the Presidents who in recent years who have been elected can’t solve the problem of guns in this country. The lobby the NRA are powerful. This organization gives tons of money to the political campaigns every four years. Also gives money for state campaigns. The NRA should works with Congress both the Senate and the House to pass a comprehensive bill that will be agreeable to all concerned, including not taking their right to bear arms which is the 2ND Amendment. I am surely confident that the NRA are highly intelligent well serving upstanding individuals that have the protection of the country at heart. Surely this body could come to a compromise in reference to this.
Now to the homelessness issue. Everyday Americans who could more than likely be in that situation. So it involves mental issues too for a great many persons who are homeless. There should be many more places in caring for the mentally ill. That has to do with the medical facilities which are hardly available which is very sad.
Now for drunk driving which is tragically sad and happened more and more all the time. In some state there is a beer lobby which funds the states which contribute to this and again on a state by state issue which involves the whole country there could be a compromise.
Now for a medical issue, persons who are living with physical illness should have medicines available to them without added inconveniences. It shouldn’t be harder for people to obtain and making life more difficult where it is quite difficult in the beginning. People should take into consideration their plight. Afterall everyone has a plight from their own beginning. Persons could have compassion for others. Not to have symphony yet have empathy for others. Have understanding worse yet to feel sorry for others. If a person dislikes something or someone it is their choice. However before they come to that conclusion, it is an good idea to understand then it is their right to act in a thoughtful matter. Show respect for others. Respect is earned and having earned that it is rightfully theirs and then persons deserve it. As a slogan goes, a person gets what they deserve!

” Wonderment”

September 25, 2015

Aside from favorite movies which are too numerous to mention leaves a sense of mere enjoyment. Then there is the harmony of music which everyone is aware of certain genres. A friend indeed are books. A discovery of wonderment that you can hold in your hands and just open and close at your will yet is always there. Unfortunately there are people who haven’t had the opportunity to read anything. Some have never been taught, and that is spread through generations. It is their private secret. Others because of economic status haven’t been able to afford books even if they had the desire to read. Still others because of war haven’t had this rare choice.
My list of books are a myriad of favorites. Now my choice is National Geographic magazines and readers digest. Love wrapping my thoughts around news articles. Particularly news for the independent, the guardian, the voice of Russia which are new discoveries of knowledge. Getting different points of view. Occasionally the news from the three network sites along with fox and cnn are becoming redundant and giving the US points of view seem not whole enough so my son Andre has introduced me to another way of knowledge a better way.
Speaking of Andre. He is nearly finished editing ” Paradise Epilogue’ which deals which the subject of Heaven. It is the sequel to the e- book on Amazon. The publisher can have the book in print. Was looking on google today about that very thing. There is a screenplay ” Squatters” which Andre wants to make it into a novel. That I’ve read and think is sensational.
My enjoyment of expressing private thoughts in these many blogs are endless. I’ve made a couple of errors though still hope that people will get pleasure out of reading them, as I have creating them.
