Release True Histories!

Columbus discovered America!
Agree thats what the books say propah'
So did Zeng He, Ming, Japanese-

Semites, Knights Templar riding the breeze.
  
Siberians, Malians, left souvenirs too,
 
Polynesians, Egyptians, didnt publish claim new.
 
Irish, Romans- musn't they join the sway?
 
As did the natives, cave man, before finding his way.

China is powerful, huge, n cultured, too!
OMG, encroaching in 21st century too?
wants more to increase their big chunkO'land,
Highwaying Pakistan, India dressed in pearly garland.
Generous to nKorea, laughing at bully with nothing,
Keeping Powers drooling over decorative something.
Trade - rich, Base chase, weapons strip-tease,
Tao's heart n soul cannot be at ease!

Russia competes silent in space,
Satellites, Politics, n Digital race.
Most continents face food, health, medical issues,
Still plague our mind and body tissues.
Bamboozling the mysteries, raid secret societies-
Pillaging lands, minds, our crazy histories.
Is that what aspiring super powers do,
I am confoozled about this major to do!

Never Look Back?

I believe we must look ⬅️back at our histories so as to not repeat ancestral mistakes and select value from old books of knowledge to move➡️ forward.

This is a beautiful universal thought that applies to all of us! Different cultures speak about similar thoughts. Relevant in todays times is this one by China, from China, for China.

Injustice!

via Daily Prompt: Launch

No, I’m not talking about Trump ji* and Modi ji. I have been doing injustice to the blog lately. This is because I am struggling with doing a balancing act between technology and creativity. The quota is kapoot😉!

Couple years ago, I met a few editors/ publishers. Lately, I’ve been onto the path of exploring self-publishing channels. And apparently, editors are an expensive affair, a luxury! That eliminated, it leaves me, myself, and I! 😄

Thus, I’m strapped in to facing the tech challenges on the path to publishing on kindle, KDP. For some of you, thats a laughing breeze. For me, its a nightmare in technology. 😄 I should really try a small book or story book or collection of poems. But I have nothing else I want to publish.

Few edits later, artwork done, I’m up for the final edit and going through the last step. Which has a million of its own steps in the process. Its time to launch the book. Something deep down tells me this is the right year for “Terror in Nincompoopia.” Coming Soon.

🍂October says: 🍁Fall 💖for the deadline😉!

 

*Ji or Jee is a prefix added to people’s name for respect or elders.

Tongue-tied with Names!

via Daily Prompt: Planet

I love interesting, unusual names. Some addresses on mail can be like giving directions on how to find places on this planet! Near … Behind … Under … Barsati on top of … and so on!

Some names sound like poetry like this one:

LLlanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is a city in Wales with 58 letters making up its name, it is the longest city in Great Britain. The English translation of the name is: St Mary’s Church in the Hollow of the White Hazel Near to the Rapid Whirlpool of Llantysilio of the Red Cave.

The weather man aced saying it! Can you? I’m still working on the second longest name in the West.

The longest name? Lets take a walk, my friend.

“Not Peculiar, but the Norm.”

“Not Peculiar, but the Norm.”

Of the two feathers, which do you like better? And, why?

 

We could reject it as meaningless. On the other hand, we could learn something from it.

Picking feathers for interest is unusual for me to do. The polka dotted one I picked a while back, for beauty and then left it in one of my plants.

But the contrasting black/white one struck me as very odd. I found it today and I wondered why I didn’t like it. I realized that, I deal with the adolescent expressions about the under-currents of the racism theme, and I tended to treat it as a childish concern. Simply because, growing up with diversity, I had learned to respect all.

The more I heard them, I realized that childspeak, is the mirror to society. They represent their families and that to me is very relevant. But all we can do, is set an example for equality and Be It. No matter what experiences come our way.

Then I put both the feathers together and compared and it said to me co-existing colours are prettier than those divided.

I believe that the current need of what to believe across cultures is:
“Co-existing is not just necessary, it is more beautiful.” Thinkinkadia.

P. S. These pics below are from google search but bring out the feather beauties better. I found NO image to match my half white/black feather. Odd indeed. Enjoy!

 

Finite power faces Infinite Fury!

via Daily Prompt: Finite Power faces InFinite Fury!

Dear Mr. Trump,
There are three visitors in the region talking to you, persuading, convincing, and wreaking havoc to speak to you about warming waters as well as global warming.

Is it fear or superstition or common sense to believe in Nature’s Wrath? Time tested wisdom passed down by word of mouth can be tested at times like this, but never rejected. Whatever name we give the higher powers, they do give consequences when rules of Nature are abused. We must not in live awe or fear of them, but we must respect them.

The global warming is real enough, even if in degrees. For example, the Gulf of Mexico was warmer by two degrees as Washington had announced, so hurricane season was ‘expected’ to be worse this year. Two degrees and such wrath! What will higher degrees do?

Is it for people in power to dismiss power bigger than their own?
However powerful we humans become and effect the world, but in face of Natures’ Powers, we are insignificant. When we stop balancing our interaction with nature, we are going to be ‘balanced’ in return. By that I mean, when we go to extremes in taking over the land and oceans for purposes that cross the borderline of respect for Nature, then she gives us consequences.

This can be explained scientifically. When we throw trash into the oceans, whether we put it on giant floats or direct effluents flowing in; we abuse it. After decades, the ocean grows warmer with silent death eating its insides. And, storms raging above its warm waters, hitting humanity like Harvey, Irma, and Jose. Please look at the references embedded.

Please use your power to direct use of natures’ resources in moderation and not go for gaining control over Nature via technology. When we respect and balance, Nature will take care of us. It may not stop storms, but it might reduce the strength and levels of damage due to constructions and massive landscaping efforts. Let us learn from cultures who may seem less knowledgeable but know how to live balanced lives within the Nature that supports them.

Technology on the other hand, can give us reports on storms but it cannot block a storm even if we create a counter storm to deflect it.

Money can repair but not prepare, protect, or prevent the impact of Natures Fury.

Please take an Oath with me:
I refuse to use plastic, styrofoam, and chemicals that damage our “cool earth.” I will use naturally degradable materials only (phasing out). I will do physical exercise only in Nature to show respect through my interaction, and not using artificial materials.

Thank you for your kind attention to global warming. Lets warm hearts and hearths, not our home-ly planet itself.

Snails n Puppy Dog-tails. What are we made of?

via Daily Prompt: Memorize

I started the week with parents who nurture us, leaders like Gandhi and Mother Teresa who inspire us; and then moved on to concepts like freedom and our experience of it, how we grow to facing the unknown. All comes together in the end, in our adult personalities. These are the four I chose to pay homage to, for being contributive factors to human growth and development.

Negative personalities were not paid homage to, but one like Hitler was mentioned on the post since the contrast provides meaning to the good in our world, just as night makes us appreciate the day better. Thanks Dave and Kamal for your emphasis on this because homage or not, it is part of the overall picture.

Opposing forces:
There are Parents who let us grow to facing our fears and fighting our own battles. And, there are those parents or other nurturing agents who dont or cannot allow their children due to a choice or factors beyond their control. I didn’t mention teachers earlier in the week, but I must add them in here, since they can be major catalysts in some children’s lives.

Influential personalities like Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi inspire and move us, whole nations, and the world across borders. On the other hand, some are influenced by people like Hitler.

People all over the world love their interpretations of freedom. There are those who want to curtail it because that is how they cope with uncertain times, creating a new unknown.

The Unknown, that drives all our fears and explorations. Whether we fear it, grow into facing it, or retaliate in avoidance; it is this that takes us to our rise and fall, as human beings.

Facing our fears early effects our whole adult lives, families, and globally significant choices. What about those who never learn to face their fears or those who become fearless of or addicted to negativity itself?

How must the ‘good’ treat the ‘bad’? Its in our DNA. Its in our brains. Its in our guts. Pay homage to remember and explore options.

Enamored with the Unknown!

Paying Homage 4

via Daily Prompt: Enamored

Lastly, the Unknown. I pay homage to the Unknown, the other concept that is an awesome thrill till overcome, till we reach the next one! An old or new: unknown is ‘not known’ and needs the owner of the conscious adventure to think, prepare, and face the risk!

It is the unknown that drives all our fears, petty or otherwise. How we treat the Unknown, is a fascinating process:

fear it,

grow in facing it,

or

retaliate through avoidance;

either way, the forces that drive us to make one of these three choices; and the courage that helps us win over one unknown at a time for ourselves, and maybe, for our world. To this Unknown, I pay homage, because it is this that takes us to our rise and fall, and enables survival of the fittest, as human beings.

I hope we learn to face our fears early, because they effect (build, or destroy) our whole adult lives, families, and the globally significant choices, we make.

P. S. A sum up of the homage worthy people, concepts, and your comments on those posts tomorrow, leading to an appeal on Friday.
