BN Contest is an uncivilized pitbull loosed into a dog lovers' neighborhood

BN's October Contest has quashed the love of writing. I have read those very words in so many blogs lately. Good writers have left because of this silliness. Great writers have probably avoided joining us for the same reasons. Shaycom doesn't mean to do that, I'm sure, but they have made the love of... Sign in to see full entry.

Abuelita has come to realize that BNr's are Know It Alls with an outlet.

I have finally found a place to know it all, among my fellows. My mother always disliked and avoided people like us and she advised me, finally, that she was tired of my knowing everything. She said that I reminded her of relatives in her youth who knew everything. She wasn't irritated that they... Sign in to see full entry.

I read ??wonky's?? blog on irresistible impulses and now I'm having trouble

resisting them. Heavy peach syrup in my coffee?? What was I thinking? I fight off most stupid impulses, but sometimes, just for fun, my brain turns away from my actions and allows me to go with the flow of stupidity. Early dementia? I worry about this. I was really lazy this morning. I made my usual... Sign in to see full entry.

Grandma's t.v. is scratching its nuts and farting on the sofa again.

MY TELEVISION ISN'T LOVABLE ANYMORE and I may have to really kill its crass commercial self. When television first came into this American world, it arrived like a new relative just married into the family. I welcomed it, embraced it and tried to accept and love it, flaws and shortcomings and... Sign in to see full entry.

SARCASTIC SALESPEOPLE lose customers and money for their stores.

My elderly sisters and I walked into a Mexican art gallery and artesanias shop in Puerto Vallarta last week. One salesgirl, from Canada and who had started work there two days previously, walked up to us and said, "What lovely shopping bags you carry!" She was putting us down as idiots and making...

4th blog on Kahlil Gibran's poem WE AND YOU, explaining CNN and al Jazeera

as our eyes and viewpoints. The first part of this final segment, " We spread your path with roses," is talking about radio, t.v., newspaper and film propaganda, what we say about each other, how we describe each other. And, "somewhere between the roses and the thorns" (the truth and the... Sign in to see full entry.

3rd blog on KAHLIL GIBRAN'S poem WE AND YOU, explaining Middle

Eastern thought about the West. Third Installment of Kahlil Gibran's WE AND YOU Kahlil Gibran, who died in 1931, wrote about the troubles between the Middle Eastern and the Western world long before our particular, younger generations were even born, and so, those generations of Americans may not...

2ND INSTALLMENT, KAHLIL GIBRAN explains middle eastern thought.

Many Americans ask themselves, "Why?" when they see the anger on the faces of middle easterners on television. When did they start to hate us so and why do they hate us? The middle easterners ask themselves the same questions about us and our feelings for them. We see ourselves as the "good" in the... Sign in to see full entry.

KAHLIL GIBRAN, The Prophet we read in the 60's, explains Al Quaeda, before

1931 when he died. Well, he doesn't REALLY explain Al Quaeda, but he does set down the thoughts of many Middle Eastern people, as they see themselves. He documents their frustration with us, the supposed cause of Al Quaeda's harsh attacks. I can only quote from this book of his writings if I do a... Sign in to see full entry.

Our Mighty Holy Warrior, Martin Luther King Jr., is ignored by some

bloggers on their list of Civil Rights Leaders, because he wasn't a Muslim, because he preached non-violent revolutionary techniques, because he took a longer view of history and change, and because he included all Americans in his revolution. He touched the consciences of all decent people, not... Sign in to see full entry.
