Saturday Caturday

If you’ve got a Facebook page, you probably know that they like to bring up “memories” every now & then to remind you of something you posted two, five, seven, even ten years ago. The other day, this came up on my feed:

Obviously, since the photograph has a date imprinted upon it, it’s from ten years ago … a six-year-old Jack & a six-month-old Bobby cuddling on my bed in my apartment on Custer Street in the University Heights neighborhood of Buffalo, NY.

Look at Jack’s little white feet! I used to call them his high-tops cuz they made me think of sneakers! Oh, I miss him so much! It’s hard to believe he’s been gone over a year now.

Party Before Country

I, too, no longer recognize my country.


Rusty Bowers- Speaker of the Arizona House

This week America has had the chance to watch the January 6 Select Committee public hearings investigating the insurrection at the capital and the efforts of dyed blond Don and his cronies attempt to overthrow the results of the 2020 Presidential election.

High ranking conservative Republicans from Georgia and Arizona testified as to how Trump and his henchman Giuliani pressured election officials to break the law, find votes, replace legitimate Biden electors with false Trump electors etc.

Tales of threats against themselves and their families from neo-fascist Trump supporters were revealed.  Accusations of child molestation and pedophilia.  Death threats.

In the face of it all, these high-minded individuals stood firm.  They would not break their oaths.  They would not yield.   They would not break the law.


“Rusty Bowers, the Republican speaker of the Arizona state House of Representatives, on Tuesday detailed his…

This Is a Prayer for Litha. This Is a Prayer for Resistance.

I love this, I had to share 🙂

This is a prayer for sunshine and darkness.This is a prayer for Litha.This is a prayer for shifting the balance and this is a prayer for Resistance.

At Litha, Demeter holds on so tight that her grasp begins to weaken.  At Litha, Persephone’s will to run courses anew. Today, it seems that Demeter will win. Things will stay the same.  Her power has grown.  Tomorrow Persephone pulls imperceptibly away.  Things will never be the same.  Power is shifting.

This is a prayer for sunshine and darkness.This is a prayer for Litha.This is a prayer for shifting the balance and this is a prayer for Resistance.

We are the shifters.  Litha pulses in our veins.  Like Demeter we hold to what we have and, like her daughter, we pull towards what we could be.  We are the sunshine and we are the darkness.  We are the balance and we are the shift.  We…

Love that is created within you

This is beautiful

Peedeel's Blog

Practise love. Sitting alone in your room, be loving. Radiate love. Fill the whole room with your love energy. Feel vibrating with a new frequency, feel swaying as if you are in the ocean of love.

Create vibrations of love energy around you. And you will start feeling immediately that something is happening – something in your aura is changing, something around your body is changing; a warmth is arising around your body… a warmth like deep orgasm. You are becoming more alive. Something like sleep is disappearing. Something like awareness is arising. Sway into this ocean. Dance, sing, and let your whole room be filled with love.

In the beginning it feels very weird. When for the first time you can fill your room with love energy, your own energy, which goes on falling and rebouncing on you and makes you so happy, one starts feeling, ‘Am I hypnotising…

Here’s an idea ~

Ideas From Outside the Boxes


I do not know at what point a vasectomy can be done on a male child, but as soon after birth as it can be safely done, every male child in this world should be given a vasectomy, and except for medical reasons, there will never be a need for another abortion. Ever!

And, if a woman ever gets impregnated by a male who does not reveal he has had his vasectomy reversed, that male should have his testicles removed immediately his crime is discovered, no questions asked, no leniency given. Reversing a vasectomy should only be done with a woman’s consent that she wishes to get pregnant, and an order that she is to be the only sexual partner for a male with a reversed vasectomy. That way there will never be another unwanted child in this world.

Picture found here.

Well, actually, the “AR” in AR15 doesn’t stand for “automatic rifle.” it stands for “ArmaLite rifle.” Maybe you shouldn’t be trying to regulate something you don’t know anything about.

Well, actually, the AR15 is not an “assault weapon” or an “assault rifle.” An assault rifle is fully automatic — a machine gun. You obviously don’t know anything about this subject.

Gunsplaining is a bit different from the Distraction Game that we discussed yesterday. The distraction game is aimed at getting you to run down a rabbit trail trying to disprove a stupid argument: The problem is video games, not guns. Gunsplaining is part typical mansplaining and part gaslighting. It’s designed to make you feel that you don’t understand the subject as well as the gun fetishist and to doubt your own position. And it’s bollocks.

I don’t need to understand the lifecycle of the Clostridium butyricum…

The Self-Love Tree

I love this

Don't Lose Hope

“It might be hard to love yourself sometimes, but it is harder to not love yourself.”

The author Christine Arylo says self-love is a tree. Self-worth is the trunk, and the life-giving branches are associated with the following qualities.

– Self-awareness and self-honesty

– Self-acceptance

– Self-care

– Self-compassion and self-forgiveness

– Self-trust

– Self-esteem

– Self-empowerment

– Self-expression

– Self-respect and self-honour

– Self-pleasure, or self-joy.

Let’s unpack this metaphor a little.

The Trunk

Self-Worth is fundamental; it is absolutely crucial. It is knowing you have value because you exist and, simply, because you are you.

It is something you’re convinced of in your heart, and at your core, despite what other people might think, or say, about you.

The Branches

1. Self-Awareness and Self-Honesty: This relates to wanting to know – and to own – everything about yourself. Your values, opinions, attitudes, beliefs. Who you want…

to gushing

a breath like a straw mat

cutting into a sound sleep

a breath like mine



echoes of a dagger

on heaving chest

life (sharpening its blade)

keen, out for fresh blood

the eerie breath

a sea of apparitions

endless crazy waves

breath shattering rocks

a life sentence in a grain of sadness
