Illegal Firecrackers

Since the start of June areas in New York as well as other parts of the country has been plagued by the incessant noise of fireworks. Why anyone would spend money to create a noise nuisance in their community defies all logic.

No one stops to question who benefits from the sale of these fireworks and who has to suffer sleepless nights because of the noise. No one thinks about the effect the fumes released might have on the general population. Given that we are still fighting coronavirus, the last thing we need are toxic wastes that may create respiratory complications for the vulnerable.

Some say it is a release after months of lock down. Some say it’s defiance against the police. I call it an act of stupidity. You are inadvertently burning money and causing distress for people in your community in the process. No one benefits. If you are not contributing to the betterment of your community then you are a part of the problem. Stupidity is contagious. The way forward is to think consciously and spend wisely. Money is power and fools have difficulty keeping it. To those involved I urge you all to stop the stupid fireworks and find a way to uplift yourself.

Love Poem

If you Choose to Fall in Love

A Writer

If you choose to fall in love,
Fall in love with a writer,
but know you will live in the pages
of a poem, linger in the words of a song
be engraved in the ink of a plot
twisting you fate and heart
into a tempestuous knot.
If you choose to fall in love,
fall in love with a writer.
One who will hand you the world,
drawn and painted in metaphors
of a troubled mind, where
nothing is simple, not even a line.
If you choose to fall in love,
fall in love with a writer-
your life will never be the same.
They’ll weave stories of yesterday,
in the webs of your hair
breathe the sky of the morning,
lure you to their lair.
So, if you choose to fall in love
fall in love with a writer.
One who truer will never be;
fall in love with a writer…
with a writer like me. (Author Unknown)

Amazing Dreams

Last night I had the most amazing dream. I was in the middle of the road and a big passenger bus was coming straight at me. There was no escape. The bus hit me, but amazingly I was not hurt and I was still standing.

What happened next was absolutely incredible. I lifted this huge bus and threw it over an embankment. I watched it go over, turned around and saw a large body of water. I stood there panicking, wondering how I would get across, when astonishing the water slowly dried up leaving dry land for me to walk.

Have ever had a dream that was incredibly amazing? Feel free to share.

Life is like a Storybook

Life is like a storybook, intricately woven with many twists and turns. However, unlike a storybook it is more complex, more unpredictable. In a storybook, you get to know all the characters and you know how the story ends. Life is unpredictable about who you will encounter, and you cannot guarantee how your story will end. The key is to live a life that others can emulate. When you are gone from this earth let it be said that this person came, lived, showed love and made a difference.
