Can't Play Fair! Taking My Ball & Light Bulb and Going Home?!

The Muslims I know are horrified by the violence and terrorism sweeping the Middle East, directed against Americans and reportedly triggered by a very distasteful video posted on You Tube by a U.S. citizen. There are whispers the creator of the video is actually an extremist Muslim who is working... Sign in to see full entry.

Giving in to my Baser Instincts?

Is it selfish or wrong of me to comment on political posts that I disagree with? When I post anything I don't request or desire "Only Singers to the Choir" reactions. I do expect to be treated civilly and I am civil in my comments, challenging to the views expressed as they may be. I flinch... Sign in to see full entry.

Blogit Years

Wandering alone in a cafe drinking the chatter of strangers along with my mocha and silky bouquets touching emotions through a prism to impart ever'y sky-gleam storied over happy or sad wellings, the mundane and profound be reflections livening a river from art patterned timeless upon each telling...

Tragedy and Travesty

If the freedom of an individual harms another, it is not free...why is this so hard to grasp?? I am greatly saddened but not surprised about yet another mass-causality shooting in my country.

My Stance? Wide (Eyes, that is)

On the Middle East and the world in general - I believe Israel has a right to exist and to live in peace. This is not attainable through the destruction of other people's homes and lives by the brutalities of force and violence. I feel Israel could be a democracy, but can not claim to be one whilst...

What Christians Don’t Know About Israel?

(I am sharing some interesting information from an e mail discussion group on the Middle East that I belong to. It is a diverse membership, with Israeli Jews, American Jews, Christians and Muslims participating in a seeking-both-sides-of-the-story, respectful-in-disagreement kind of manner. Looking...

I'm a Bit Rattled By The Exodus...

happening here on Blogit.. I hope nobody else is leaving any time soon! Do you think Facebook is replacing the site? Personally I don't feel FB is a conducive environment for creative writing posts - I've put some of my poems there and other than my son's English professor and the assistant editor...

OINK, Oink?!

The pulmonology office I am a patient of just e mailed me a link to this fascinating article: "Pig lungs could soon be transplanted into humans after astonishing medical breakthrough" My doctor knows I have reservations about receiving new human lungs because there is a shortage and I feel young...

Toxic Blogit?

A person leaving cruel comments is bad, but I must say the worst Blogit behavior I've witnessed occurred a couple of years ago. A Palestinian woman joined the site; she lived in the Occupied Territories and wrote gentle, lovely poetry. Sometimes her work reflected the deep angst and fear inherent in...
