Today I had planned to write about ‘The power of positive thinking’… instead I decided to write about something else:
We all know that earlier this month Russia has invaded the Ukraine.
I’m not going into details about known facts, or any political discussion here.
All I would like to ask you at this moment is:
Please, pray for Ukraine and its people, pray for the end of that war, pray for peace in the world!
Song by John Lennon
Imagine there’s no heaven It’s easy if you try No hell below us Above us, only sky Imagine all the people Livin’ for today
Ah Imagine there’s no countries It isn’t hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion, too Imagine all the people Livin’ life in peace You
You may say I’m a dreamer But I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us And the world will be as one Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can No need for greed or hunger A brotherhood of man Imagine all the people Sharing all the You
You may say I’m a dreamer But I’m not the only one I hope someday you’ll join us And the world will live as one
E. R. Smith from “bronxbeyondborders.com’ published a fantastic blog post I can’t resist re-blogging. It is an article about the ‘Aesthetic of a Full Figured Woman’; a subject that I hold dear and near. I think she did an amazing job with this post. Please, check it out.
Reflecting on aesthetics, I couldn’t get Alessia Cara’s song out of my head. Really, I am still humming it as I write. She sings “Scars to You’re Beautiful”. She tells the tale of a girl, like me, that you don’t see in magazines. A girl craving the adoration reserved only for the beautiful, or so she assumes. Alessia’s observation is that, “She don’t understand she’s worth it.”
Does anybody remember the day when Color, Race, Religion and Political Affiliation didn’t matter? The day when Police and Firefighters were the Biggest Heroes on the planet.. The day when we were all just Americans?? Don’t let it take this … To bring us back together.. Please feel free to share.
