It’s Friday!


Hello good people, the new day is upon us and the birds are chirping…OK enough of that mushy stuff. It is Friday here in America and it means for many of us the weekend is here. Its amazing how fast Friday can get here sometimes but others it can’t get here fast enough. Today is payday so I am jazzed about that.

Lets finish strong and do good things today. Whatever you are doing today make it…

My Experiment With WordPress


I am experimenting with WordPress the popular blogging platform. My reason for doing so is to see how it works as a social blogging system. I will share my findings with you and let you know what my experience is. Some day we might have to migrate there because Tumblr could radically be different because of Yahoo. My advice is to open a blog there and test it for yourself. Stay tuned for more information.

Writing For The Social Masses


I wonder if social media, texting and other forms of electronic communications have impacted our writing quality? It seems like it to me because of the shorthand and abbreviations that are used. We write for short lengths and have to get our point across sooner or else we lose the attention of our audience. We are writing more for the social masses which means we sometimes forget what we learned in our writing classes. What is your experience with this?

A Question From A Fellow Blogger


djelevatedpoet asked this question….

Who are the real heroes and who are the real villains in our society?

Sometimes the heroes wear black while the villains wear white. We seem to live in a shades of gray world today. To avoid being to cynical here I think heroes are people who make a significant contribution to the world while villains exploit and do evil things to others. A community relies upon its police to protect and serve but if gone unchecked they can abuse power. Some who do dastardly things can find themselves doing noble things. So when you ask who are the real heroes and villains then be prepared to think hard about this. 



Empty hearts
Empty minds
Empty pews
Empty stores
Empty souls
Empty seats
Empty schools
Empty malls
Empty communities
Empty glasses
Empty promises
Empty homes

So many things that are empty, it is truly sad. How can we fill these things up? How can we make a difference. Emptiness is here and now.
