This is what I am going to look like for the next few days. I am in word hell trying to figure out the best words to use in my article and keep within my word count without leaving out something critical. This a brief break to apologize if I don’t respond quickly or post anything interesting.
I tried to catch up with likes and followers over the weekend and was surprised that one comment on another’s poetry blog was quite unpleasant and rude. If the commentator had any sense he would have noticed some disordered thinking in the poetry. If you don’t like something – just move on. I have had a few likes that were from dubious sources or from people with very different views from me. I just ignored them and hoped they went away to the WordPress prison (is there one?).
Hypocritically, I opined on someone’s blog idolizing Steve Jobs. The man created some amazing products and was very rich but I don’t think we should emulate him to enhance our lives. It’s just stuff!!! There are so many people in this world to admire including the Tunisian quartet who won the Nobel Peace Prize. This is a quote from the Washington Post –
An alliance of Tunisian workers, employers, lawyers and activists won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, a decision meant to honor the quest for democracy in the nation that gave birth to the Arab Spring as well as urge it on at a time when its still-tenuous gains are increasingly under threat.
My brain is hurting so I am going to binge on TV. BTW, I have washed and the cats haven’t had to wash my armpits (you know who you are, fellow blogger…)
BTW.2 here is the link to my book which I haven’t had time to publicize – http://www.amazon.com/Letters-Cairo-This-memoir-travelogue-ebook/dp/B015JFY1F0
