Feminism (People’s Rights)

There is a revolution.

People are making political, ideological and societal movements.

Why?

People are rightly concerned about voting, work, wages, equal pay, property, marriage, maternity, social integration,rape,sexual harassment,domestic violence.

Listen and learn: humanity has a lot to learn from groups of people.

“Me Too Movement ” is another group that is revolutionary.

Perhaps, the means and methods for change in society will take its toll on a few, so that the many can live together in a better way.

Change Is Challenge

Sometimes change is a pain in the ass.

Often we are kinda set up, we feel overwhelmed and our attitude sucks, we believe we are ‘over worked and under paid’.

There are moments when our awareness let’s us know we are stressed out.

When we feel depressed and stressed, change can become an insult.

So to reframe the problem, we are stressed and depressed and the insult of change just made us aware of it.

Damage control or triage may allow us a short term fix. We may manage the change.

But reality tells us to work out the rest of the problem…

So if we are just feeling depressed and stressed we can do what we always do: rest and relax, get on with the rest of our day.

We may chat it out with friends and relatives or write it out in a journal, do our exercises or work out, play with our hobbies. finish our chores and other responsibilities. Hit the shower and get a good night of sleep.

If your version is more like TV and beer we may have a bigger problem.

The idea is to find out our problem and start to work it out and try not to make it worse.

But we may have to make it worse if we are still stuck or unaware how bad a problem we really have.

No matter how far along the continuum of change you find us, remember we are all on the same path.

Some of us have not met with clinical depression or harmful stress, but wait for it.

We all have a chance to meet them along the path.

Life is the challenge and it is full of change.

Good luck with both!

An Early Window on Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day 2018

A Lifetime of Assistance

When I was a kid, you would look after me well,

As an adult, I’m glad you didn’t send me to hell,

I had lots of ups and downs to overcome,

You’d watch and support me through everyone,

As I grew, you saw me change and grow,

You accepted me and worked hard to let me go

I moved to Edmonton for 25 years,

You took my calls and flowers each one of these years,

I came back to Victoria 15 years ago,

We are friends and help each other grow…

I’m looking forward to heading out with you

To the casino on Mom’s Day, see you soon.

Your Son, Michael

Mother’s Nature

Fragile and alone, she stood in the wind and snow.

She hated getting cold and the wind.

Yet her day began and ended in perpetual motion.

She floated on a sea within a sea.

She was a part of the universe.

More questions came to her mind than answers.

Who cares, her one thought was to do no harm and to continue to live in harmony with all her neighbors: the moon, the stars and other planets, the solar system.

The sun was beautiful and marvelous.

There was lots for everyone.

Why did humanity want to harm her in their home?

The Message

Who are you?

Do you have a goal or a plan?

Maybe, you ‘like’ or want to do something with meaning or purpose.

Learn what you can learn, do what you can do, practice,practice,practice.

Do no harm and try to be kind and honest.

You belong, you were born and are part of this place and these people.

What have you to say?
