All this land and Daisy never leaves the property - she circles it silently, looking for rascals. I've been reading & painting, painting & reading. My truck was broke but my mechanic fixed it, not that I minded being house bound. I love it.
I've made a new best friend the past 8 months. Me.
I've been reading 12 rules for life. I kept hearing about this guy.. a twitch from medication, detoxed in Russia, put into a coma to avoid withdrawal - then at the library I mentioned his name to the lovely librarian, she walked over & pulled it off the shelf, right in front of me.
I believe it is by far one of the best books ever wrote and recommend it to all.
12 rules for life - an antidote to chaos once again I was reminded of my limited (by choice) outside influences and realize 'this guy' - is allover youtube- you can watch many of his talks. I like to encourage reading- it stimulates the brain. I had to look up a few words. 'Nihilism' for one... lol Glad, I am not one who practices'. He is Canadian, I giggled several times reading his book and pondered `Do Australians know what we mean when we say: Your on thin ice mister!!
More on that later...next
It's Saturaday, I have a full day of painting and more planned.
Norms busy building- something.
Teachers- Have you ever taught in an elementary school for a week? You would understand VERY quickly WHY they DO deserve more money... more than most hockey, football players or politicians'.
I read about a life prisoner murdering 2 known child pedophiles in jail. I think he will be praised. I'm not sure how I feel about it... Good in truth, I guess. 2 less terrible people on the planet. Apparently, they were watching 'kids tv shows', taunting other inmates..
I know this happens I've discussed it in detail with my brother, who is no stranger to the prison system in Canada. They also watch hunting shows, movies like the Dukes of Hazard, (mindless crap) often violent & degrading to women in many regards.
Negative television & news (in an already very negative environment) only fuels anxiety in jail. It is common sense to most of us out here- probably not a good choice.
My brother said "we don't care.. out of sight out of mind." He is writing a book on the topic in hopes of educating others... nothing like first hand experience.
I agreed, out of sight out of mind but it is not that I think; we don't care as much as-
WE don't know.
It needs to be addresses for EVERYones sake. The sooner the better.
The fact that they are 'in jail' and "authorities" seem to show no initiative for the opportunity of EDUCATIONAL television is confusing to me. What any T.v> give them books. You might not think this is important but most come out nastier than when they go in... & they do, get out. Fact.
This railway protesting & RCMP are creating animosity and more hatred directed specifically toward indigenous people in Canada.
I am with them. I thank them. I appreciate what they are doing for us.
We should be concerned only at this point about the health of Canada. Eh.
Gas? GREED. $$$$$$$$
Short term jobs for Canadians - Long term and often permanent damage to our environment, plants, creatures- great & small.
I'm so grateful to be surrounded by trees & birds, snow... more than you know.
Now for some Saturday Morning fun:
The original Skunk & skunk . hee hee
