Music of the heart,
In a loving memory…
“Roses are red,”
Is there a badge for courage?
“Violets are blue,”
Can I be true with my tallant?
“Sugar is sweet…”
Serenity can help me be a better person, with you.
Inside, there is a life.
Peace, lots of emotions and thoughts, a collection of poetry.
Ah, philosophy, a way to think about wisdom and love.
Photography, a picture that represents an impression of the nature of things.
Technology, a growing concern that represents some hope for the woes of the world.
A changing picture of things going on around the world.
PROPER USE OF IMPRESSIONS
The democratic nature creates change, one vote are a time.
Remember to take what you need and leave the rest.
Follow your heart into the future that sustains earth and a global or universal citizen.
Practice non-violence, one kind act at a time.
Add your voice to the choir of love and compassion to grow a better life.
The economy of compassion is a currency to improve positive change.
Count each gentle, patient, self-controlling, good….
Add the good life and let the bad life go.
Use critical thinking to live a compassionate way of being.
Some good opinions are being frustrated by the popularity of Authoritarianism and fake news, hate spin, fear of the unknown and the effects of COVID stress.
I believe in two ways of coping with stress or any other problem life may throw my way.
The first is do no harm and the proper use of impressions which is something akin to living the good life.
An older, perhaps dated poem says, “…keep your virtue.” Again, not the easiest thing to do when times are good, let alone now.
And the other is more abstract, don’t act like this in public, but in private put your ‘good life’ to good use by practicing these principles primarily for your family, friends and self. Don’t do this publicly, put it to good use by working hard to do no harm and put the above principles to good use. With this kind of anonymity you are less likely to be harmed by fame or fortune.
You will be less likely to harm anyone through loosing your ‘virtue’.
But the pandemic is a special case, we all need to recover by doing what is best in our own situation and that puts public pressure on us all.
The facts are that these vaccines are our best good practice. The best science can offer. We need to have faith this is the best answer and curb unscientific, misinformation and fake news.
So, find courage to take the vaccine so we can take our best shot at putting this pandemic behind us.
Human Rights Day commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Ideally, each of us has the ability to become a global citizen.
I do this through writing, travel, and working as a responsible person.
To act in a way to promote more cooperation and collaboration, but to sustain what works and find better ways to be free.
Be a part and make a move that works better today.
Insight from the Dalai Lama 2020
“Basically we are all the same human beings with the same potential to be a good human being or a bad human being….The important thing is to realize the positive side and try to increase that; realize the negative side and try to reduce. That’s the way.”
It needs to be said by the people we know and trust.
We are all trying to behave well and live a balanced life and living more in the moment.
We are trying to ‘do no harm’.
Please support the effort.
Self isolation is key, which means no gathering for Christmas or Holidays like New Years.
People are dying and we are so close to a working vaccine,in fact the first British Subject was given her shot today.
Please support the effort
First Christmas card this year!
I quit looking for perfection.
Competing for success sucks when it costs you good people.
No amount of material gain makes up for pain and suffering or harm to myself or others.
I like keeping my small failures and small successes.
I’m not looking for a ditch to lay down in or some golden ring that makes me a winner.
To build a relationship with myself and others, is all about learning from success and failure, to correct my mistakes and make a life while adjusting to changes.
I believe in keeping my stuff small and manageable and building on a good foundation in all my affairs.
Kipling said it best “If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same.”
