Change is hard sometimes, most of the time, actually.

After four years I changed the background, the fonts, the size of the fonts, the arrangement of the pages of this blog and….eh…idk.

I’m probably gonna change it back.

Attention Spans and Love

I am aware that because of technology and the rapid speed of life these days, the attention span of many people, including mine, is short.  So, when someone sees one of my stories in the feed, a story made of several thousand words, it makes happy in my soul when someone (or two) take the time to read it.


When I am on a good week, not depressed, not hiding from the world, I do make a concerted effort to read everything in my feed because I know the person who wrote it, did so, to have it read and acknowledged.

People need love in any way they can get it, whether they realize it or not.

Taking the time to read another’s words is an act of love.  The more love there is in the world, the happier we will all be.

Great Quotes

I am really running across some great quotes, tonight, and I want to bookmark them all for easy reference, hence:

“Search not for happiness outside yourself, for nothing could be further from the truth.”

“[What Rushdie took away from reading Gunter Grass’s The Tin Drum]: Go for broke. Always try and do too much. Dispense with safety nets. Take a deep breath before you begin talking. Aim for the stars. Keep grinning. Be ruthless. Argue with the world. And never forget that writing is as close as we get to keeping a hold on the thousand and one things–childhood, certainties, cities, doubts, dreams, instants, phrases, parents, loves–that go on slipping like sand, through our fingers.” 
― Salman Rushdie

“Persistence and passion will make you invincible.” 
― Christian Baloga

“Don’t fear the enemy that attack you but the fake friend that hugs you” 
― Obameso Sunkanmi

“I discovered another analogy in the legacy of Prophet Muhammad that immediately clicked with me: that the angels put down their wings in humility for a person who seeks knowledge, and that all living things, even the ants in their anthill and the fish in the sea, pray for a person who teaches people good things.
When I read this, I literally felt the goodness flow out of my heart for all creatures. The beautiful mental image it evoked resonated with my concept of the universe as one unit, and of all living things seeking to live together in peace and harmony, and being grateful when humans tried to fit into the circle of life, instead of working so hard to disrupt its equilibrium”
