Hello my wonderful friends and readers!
I have an open mind to varied thoughts, opinions, and imaginations. God knows I am so blessed reading your stories and interacting with you on the Medium platform! However, others (trolls) may have been trolling you and showing anything but appreciation for your creations. You may have gotten a bad vibe from them and not known what hit you or why. Allow me to help.
I was trolled, felt deeply hurt, and quit writing. But, after learning about trolls and their behavior, I felt better equipped to reenter the wonderful world of writing.
Trigger alert: Arts humanities and social sciences with nude artifacts
There is a country, on our planet, that glorifies hellacious human body dismemberment, mass murder of men women an children, and other insane acts of violence and destruction?
Where kids of all ages watch it all 24/7 and ignore the ratings (if they have a rating)?
Where sponsors pay big bucks to associate their company brands with these shows?
If a nip, pecker, or vag come into view…
There will be Hell to Pay!!! …
Trigger Alert: Unbelievable to those who deny the existence of objects out of this world. Cultural appropriation due to lack of understanding of alien culture.
Varied colored spheres played with us three brothers on our way home.
It was the mid-1960s in a small Pennsylvania town. I and my brother were elementary school age and playing in a field next to our house, baby brother in tow.
We lived at the edge of town in the last house on Main Street. It was the first time we had taken our one-year-old kid brother with us to play.
We had finished…
I sleep in late.
I snooze at my desk.
I snore on the phone.
I doze off in meetings.
I am asleep on my feet.
My boss spent long hours doing my job and died of a heart attack.
I schlepped my slumbering body up.
My next unfortunate supervisor went into the asylum after going nuts doing my work every day.
I was pushed up.
The new manager berated my tardiness daily and left after rumors that we had a lover’s quarrel.
I strode up.
The next leader overloaded my coworker with my work till she turned around and went…
Settle in on your cozy couch
You can afford to slouch
Amazon is delivering your hunk and his pouch
He is your ideal man, your heartfelt dream
Fresh off your cable TV screen
But till now, like Bigfoot, he never had been seen
He is new to town
Never carries a frown
He’s an instant hit with the kids as he clowns around
But he is serious at the same time
Always there to hand out a dime
He cleans you off when your face is covered in slime
He is an angelic and skilled lumberjack
Always appears when needed…
How many lawyers do you need to keep abreast of laws in your life? Answer: Innumerable
Legal Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer. No legal advice is given. This is an opinion piece on society.
There are tons of laws, of which we are uninformed. Yet, we “must” know every one of them, including potential applications and exploitations of each by anybody in power, in any conceivable situation, both now and in the future. “Ignorance is never an excuse,” in any law-abiding land.
That sounds daunting, doesn’t it? …
Impossible you say?
Our Moon looking like our Sun during the day
Setting fire to the sky as it orbits along its way
Might our Moon knock off the frozen face of Mount Rainier Below?
Will the blazing sky melt the mountain’s glacial ice and snow?
Or, will it all throw and flow when the volcano makes its next big blow?
Washington sky, prophetic, muting crows caw
Fire moon behind crimson expanse, inexhaustible and tall
Mount Rainier’s glaciers stream cool sustainment relished by all
Marked savage weather and drought, upon the Earth doth gnaw
When heat suffers ancient glacial steeps…
I never had one, but I prayed I would
Maybe I could build it, and friends said I should
So, nature’s secluded tiny bed, bid a delicate plow
Luckily, the county said, “Okay, that we’ll allow”
It was a learning curve, which I do enjoy now
Society kept at bay
No hearing what they say
It’s the breeze swaying the trees I enjoy all day
Have you taken rest here?
No human is near
My trusting fox and deer
