Linda G. Hill’s theme this week for One-Liner Wednesday is: Is it just me? Her example is trying out poetical descriptions of facial expressions she reads, with her own face. Check it out — it’s kind of hilarious. I think you’ll try it, too — I know I have. So the answer to Linda’s question is, “No, Linda, it’s not just you.” Lol, and thanks so much for that visual! (Seriously, go to her site and find out how to play.)
I’m going to share one of my dearly held beliefs that I’m absolutely sure is true, but nobody else seems to get.
On second thought… if they get it, how would I know?
The best way to keep a secret is to not let anyone know you have one.
Helen Espinosa’s Song Lyric Sunday theme this week is either protest songs or songs about “surviving this crazy thing called life.”
Before the British Invasion of bubble gummer rock, Folk music in America was hitting a more mature stride than The Four Preps and The Lettermen hit with their College Pop music style. Harking back to the social commentary of Woody Guthrie’s time, Bob Dylan and others — many others — tapped into America’s growing unrest toward the Vietnam War, racism, and the Civil Rights movement. He and the many others helped wake us up and motivate us to break out of that Dark Age.
Today, this song seems just as relevant as it was in 1964, like most of Dylan’s music seems to be. Maybe this can be the anthem for fighting our way out of the Dark Age we live in now.
This week has a little room for celebrations and social media alongside some incisive thinking. I mean, if Donald Drumpf (his ancestors’ original surname) is really the Republican candidate for POTUS, there must be laughter in the celestial spheres.
