Month: January, 2017

First month of the year

Wow, where has the time gone? Here we are at the beginning of the last full week in January and New Year celebrations feel like yesterday!

Okay dokey, January 2017 saw the inauguration of the 45th POTUS, followed by women demonstrating against the misogynistic SOB. In other news I watched SNL reporting his first press interview and was amazed how much Alec Baldwin captured the personality, if not the shouting.

We had the first anniversary of the death of the Thin White Duke and I celebrated his life by watching the documentary “The Last Five Years”. Amazing insight into his battle against a disease which takes so many people every year. We have the minds necessary but they are only beginning to work together to understand the disease, how it grows and how to beat it. 

Can we just find it in each and everyone of us to come together learn about each other with love, help others out when they get into trouble and try to remove the reasons for war? The biggest of these is ignorance, but greed and hatred also play their part.

This ends us or we can come together and end it.

Have a very happy New Year

This is my first post of 2017, it has taken me a while to get my thoughts in order for this post. That seems to be my biggest problem when sitting down to write a post for this blog, not procrastination just trying to get my thoughts together to start writing a post. You see once I start the post tends to write itself, not sure why that is exactly but still it does happen. Not always as planned but hey we can’t all be perfect can we?

Anyway I start with an idea and then plan how to start the post once it starts it seems that the words just start to flow out of my hands onto the blank screen and then hey presto! It’s done.

I have just one wish for 2017, not for myself but for all of us, that we can see the world change for the better, where man starts to take care of himself. A peaceful world where we finally start treating everyone with respect and as equals. Where the colour of a persons skin no longer matters and their sexuality and sexual preferences never come into consideration for the way we see them.

I would like to see an end to hatred and division, for us all to get to know each other and love to finally come into its own so that we all take care of those unable to take care of themselves. Everyone to be made welcome everywhere whether they are looking to resettle or merely have a holiday there. A world where everyone is welcome and religion has no bearing on the way we treat each other. Embrace our differences as that is what makes us unique and we all have something to offer.

Love and peace replacing war and hate can only make us, as a species, stronger. Please let’s all work towards ending the hatred and embrace our neighbour as a friend.
