    Family Can Be Anybody Who Loves Enough

    I don’t know what to call this. I think it’s my grasshopper brain in action. It is 1:47am. I had all intentions of actually going to bed and sleep. Such an optimist. Sleep has become elusive lately and erratic. Like this early morning, due to some physical pain, I am awake and raring to go, although there isn’t anywhere to go except Wegman’s, my 24/7 therapy place. Can’t be bothered to get dressed, so I thought – write a blog. Bored to tears with regular television programmes I logged onto Amazon and came across a film I had never seen. It was surprising I hadn’t seen it as it had…

    Change of Attitude

    So much has been written about attitude.  An attitude of gratitude is well known indeed, and it doesn’t have to remain the same because like life itself, attitudes embrace change. This isn’t entirely popular as there are so many different aspects to change.  Life’s challenges will change so much and with these, comes grief sometimes. Desires are part of these changes too like wanting to have love, friendship, loyalty, touch, conversation, and confidentiality. People want to grow and become whatever their dreams are, their wishes for a better life, more prosperity, work they love so that doesn’t feel like work, and success, although some are so beaten down they can’t…

    Ageism

I said, “Do you know how many times I had to repeat myself when you were little?” It never happened again. According to my favourite reference book, The Oxford English Dictionary, Ageism is prejudice or discrimination on the grounds of age. I AM NOT AGING. I AM RIPENING. I AM SEASONING. I AM WEATHERING.

    Wishes

    “I believe that once desires are implanted in the brain, they start on the longest journey they will ever take, to the heart, soul and gut. That’s when things happen. “ I was always taught that wishes were a waste of time and just fantasies which would never happen, so why bother. Why not bother?  Wishes aren’t just hope that something miraculous will happen.  They are dreams of the impossible or so we think. How would we have electricity, cameras, even safety pins if someone had given up on what they believed would improve the world? I know there are some wishes that couldn’t be fulfilled. Something I would love…
