‘There’s no such thing as them. There’s only us.’

Blogging friend Andrea asks that “if you watch only one video today, please make it this one.” I second her request. This video confirms something I’ve been saying for years … it gives us a perspective that we often forget about as we are so wrapped up in our own lives. Thank you, Andrea, for sharing this one. EVERYONE should see it!

I Ask Of You A Difficult Task

Another school shooting, voting rights disappearing, the war in Ukraine … these days it’s easy to lose HOPE, but our friend Roger gives us a new way of thinking about (and not losing) HOPE! Thank you, Roger!

Writing Despite Computers and Programmes

Truth be known. Some might think this as two tasks. Some might feel the source material and sentiments are not appropriate. Stay with me though.

Firstly I would ask you to read the following Russian (there’s the current trigger word) WWII poem by writer and war correspondent Konstantin Simonov, written in 1941 to actress Velentina Serova.

Tell you, you should not.
Wait when snow is falling fast,
Wait when summer’s hot,
Wait when yesterdays are past,
Others are forgot.
Wait, when from that far-off place,
Letters don’t arrive.
Wait, when those with whom you wait
