I have been working full time and writing as much as I can. It has been too hard for me to focus on my blog. I feel like I tossed it by the wayside. I made a promise to myself that I am going to start writing posts again. I want to. I may even need to do it. For me it was a great way to connect with people and I miss that. My posts will be some of the same and some very different ones. My interests have changed to include screenwriting. I have also written more song lyrics in various genres. Everything is covered by copyright laws so I plan on sharing it. That’s it for now. So…see you again very soon. #lovelife
I haven’t written a blog since last month. I apologize for that. I’ve been busy working on three different projects. I don’t want to mention what they are yet because I’m not one who talks of things before I’m finished with them. Sometimes I feel like things won’t come to fruition if I speak of them first. Is that superstitious? Probably. I will say that it’s writing and its very involved.
I have not been on twitter either. So, I vow to do better. I have to do better. I will add another post soon. Be well. Happy reading and writing!
It’s been a few weeks since my trip to Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas. I’ve had a hard time putting the experience into words. The word I’ve used consistently to explain it verbally to people has been amazing. As far as writing about it I knew I’d have too much to say. I’m going to do my best to keep it short.
It was an amazing trip for one because of the history of the school. It played a large role in integrating our public schools. As I walked the hallways I felt the presence of those who had stood up for so many students they’d never meet. The Little Rock Nine roamed the halls with hatred being spewed at them so that we could walk freely through the halls. The history walked alongside of me and I will never forget that feeling.
It was amazing because the students I met with weren’t LGBTQ students. Some might have identified as such but I met with communication classes and students from the AVID Program. Yet they were open and asked a lot of questions. No one laughed at the subject. They were honest and so was I in my responses.
It was amazing because the students showed an interest in someone other than themselves. I don’t mean me although they treated me like a celebrity. That felt pretty cool. They showed concern for LGBTQ teens and the coming out experience. They were open and attentive. They made me extremely proud to be in their company.
Life sometimes gets in the way of our dreams but these kids were determined and focused. I have no doubt they will achieve their desires. I hope that life doesn’t make them judgmental and jaded. They seem to embrace a world that allows their hearts to be welcoming. They will be the generation to conquer the underlying hate that exists in the world.
They are who we all should be.
I was hesitant when the challenge began and almost didn’t participate. I wish I could’ve been more active but will peruse other blogs to leave comments. My April was really busy and I hope next year this time it is slow enough to allow me to do better.
Zoom, zoom, zoom we are done. See you next year for the challenge…
Of course like everyone else, when I hear the word Xerox I think of copies. I’m taking it a little further relating it to people since it was the only X word that jumped out at me. So many people try to duplicate what others have already done. Writers do it. Performers and singers do it. In some ways it does make sense to copy something while tweaking it to make it your own.
What people forget is that we are all unique individuals. We all have many talents. There is no reason to be envious or jealous of others. Aspire to make similar achievements or emulate them to some degree. Don’t be an exact copy of them but be the best version of you. The best version of you is better than a version of them on any given day.
