The Color Of Writing

Shades of contrast, description, making the invisible visible.

White, gray and black thinking,


Collapsed Bed

Assemble it with screwdriver and wrench.

Easier said than done, my eyesight is poor, I need light and eye glasses.

The moody frustration bursts out, “Come on.”

I tighten the damn screw while holding the nut with the wrench and simultaneously controlling my frustration.

Put everything aside in handy location and return to my repaired bed for a shortened night sleep.




Exercising some better judgement over ones own behavior or desire, emotions and thoughts.

I am a work in progress.



A journal or diary can be a safe place to start,

A good practice requires failure in public and the expression of mistakes as well as our good work.

There is never a bad feeling, but behavior may require a little support.

As do our beliefs and social disagreements.

In turning our inner self out, there may be a need to change.

To face the truth about ourselves requires courage.

A good life is possible after a lot of work.

Yet, another problem is causing harm in Congo this year.

And awareness of this effort is hard won in the face of current problems.

Multiple problems bare responsibility and assessment.

Effects are being made to bring more awareness to the measles and the Ebola outbreak.

Please support the effort.

Fear Walking

Every success has a collection of failures,

I notice I have a fear as I try to succeed,

I carry my fear through all these steps, these attempts at walking,

I notice my fear of falling,

I notice my fear changing as I rise up,

I notice my courage, even when I don’t know why I fell,

“Courage is fear walking,”

Susan David: The gift and power of emotional courage

Why the Latest Ebola Outbreak Is Raising Global Alarms – The Washington Post

Ebola is one of the deadliest diseases on Earth, with a fatality rate as high as 90%. It’s among a handful of illnesses so dangerous that governments consider them threats to national security. An epidemic in West Africa that began in late 2013 and faded in 2016 killed more than 11,000 people, exceeding the counts from all previous waves combined. Now Ebola has flared again, with the latest outbreak declared a global emergency by the World Health Organization.

This is a global emergency and too big to accept at face value.

But awareness can lead to acceptance, understanding and even hope.

Please support the effort.
