Nightmares are dreams with attitude.
Nightmares are dreams with attitude.
I swear heaven will be full of people complaining that the clouds are too soft and their wings itch!
Teen-age Johnny picked a fight.
Little did he know,
The boy that he knocked down?
Would one day run the show!
Tiny Sally bit the hand,
That offered her a treat.
Many years then went by,
Revenge is oh so sweet!
The actions of today,
Will one day come around.
And be the cause we did not see,
And wished we’d never found!
‘Reflect before you do.’
Our motto I should think
Because before you know it
The future is in sync!
Enthusiasm is infectious.
Give an idea wings and its flight will know no boundaries.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am admitting that I’m about to go on a bit of a rant. Some of the things I say may offend a few and for that I apologize. I don’t apologize for what I’m about to impart. I think it’s high time something was said. I am quite sure I’m not the only one who has had these thoughts. It is not said with any malice but plenty of forethought.
I recently watched part of the Emmy awards program. I was surprised at how few shows I had actually seen. And I do watch TV. I think a great many of them were actually on Crave or Netflix or some other alternative to regular television. I enjoy watching actors that I admire. There was also a touching bit about individuals, in that business, that we have lost. There were a few I didn’t know about.
Award shows have always been a magnet for people to talk about fashion. In particular, the media loves to focus on what the women are wearing. I saw a few men in comment worthy outfits but they are not the focus of my rant.
Women have fought long and hard to be worthy of accolades. There was a time when women were less important than the livestock they cared for. They have worked hard to be seen as equal to men, to be equal to men. We talk about the glass ceiling and how we are consistently breaking it. Women want to be appreciated for what they are capable of, not how they look. Or so I thought. And then you go to an awards show. And those dresses, in many cases, defy gravity! If you don’t want to be seen as a beautiful object, then why do you dress as one? We don’t talk about men suits and what a beautiful cut they have. We talk about women’s dresses and how good/ awful/ bizarre they might be.
“ I can’t move or breathe or walk, But it’s great!”
A celebrity actually said that! Women are taped, plucked and wrapped up so they look extraordinary. It is an awful lot of work. But perhaps it is appropriate for a business that is all about the illusion. And the theme of the night seemed to be ‘breasts’. Specifically: how little can you cover and still be considered decent. A whole lot of taped died in pursuit of an award that night.
I am quite sure that Monday morning the call once again became ‘women should not be objectified’, unless of course it is by themselves.
If we spent as much time trying to fix our problems as we do complaining about them, we may not have any problems.
They say that revenge is a dish best served cold. But it can be reheated.
If you are reaching for the stars, then at least you are looking up.
What do you carry
In the baggage you hold?
How tight do your keep
Do you shuffle and fold
And occasionally toss
The items you carry
Are they heavy and cold
Or cheerful and light?
Do you keep
Under lock and key?
Do you share what you have
With those you hold dear?
Or hide them away
Perhaps it is time
To reveal what you have
To lighten the burden
Each of us owns
Some baggage we hide
So don’t be afraid

Old fashioned and old school. I would not have it any other way.
Retired from the University of Texas and too old to play soccer anymore. Now, in the twilight of his years, time is spent writing in this blog, hiking and exploring Texas Parks, photography, working out, gardening and tending to the five ponds he built .
Rants, humor, sarcasm, and a haiku-like substance? It's hard to know what's going to come out of our minds next.
