Here There Be Devils

We are at a place in time

where children are caged, even babies and toddlers,

with orders that they not be touched or comforted

and purposefully broken

because they are ‘the other’  because they are not white.

 

We are at a place in time

where this is okay with some people –

not because of ‘national security’

but

because it  makes them feel good , happy,  righteous and superior.

 

We are at a place in time

where the deaths and pain of children

are fueling a Political Campaign.

 

Hell is empty

and indeed,

the devils are here.

 

 

Wasteland

The Monday Peeve 13

I had assumed that when people clicked the like button on my blog links at FB, it meant that they had taken a quick peek at what I had written.

Not so.

Some people thought that I was posting pictures and golly gee, those are so neat-o and I deserve a big pat on the back for sharing  it, and sometimes they are ‘saying’ that the little blue thumb is informing me in Emoji shorthand that they are ‘supportive’

Seriously.

I don’t know why I bother with Facebook, it’s a wasteland.

The Tracks

Since July I have learned how long it takes for the trains to start running after someone has been hit and killed by one.

You know, there are something’s  in this world we should never have to get our minds around. Things like this being one of them.

N.B. From what I understand, the deaths in most of these cases were suicides.

In a Word

“If you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”. – (Act III, scene I).”
William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

If you don’t do it on Facebook or Instagram …sorry Mr Shakespeare- in a word the answer is NO.

 

A Bite of Reality

Sometimes

when I am trying to take a picture

I have these ideas in my head- I know what I was thinking when I took it, I know what the story is that I want to tell and I have this idea about what the light is trying to show me.

But then I go back and look at some of my pictures,what is there is far more interesting and to a large degree even creepier then I thought I was capturing.

I have got to learn to not step all over a story when it just rolls my way.

Tapping On My Chamber Door

The train I was on hit a person out on the tracks on my trip to the Midwest.

A few blocks away from where I was staying in Wisconsin

two people died in two separate  traffic accidents.

Before I even left town my cat, Micey died.

Sometimes feel like someone is looking over my shoulder and I don’t think it’s a good idea to turn around and see who is there.
