03-07-14 My Morning Thoughts: “Global Warming” Since I’m a very scientific person (ya right) who has been trained in the atmospheric pressure field of feeling sub-zero temperature precipitation for almost an entire……3 months now, I’m here to tell ya…there aint NO global warming cause I’m still freezing in Cleveland!!!!...however it is supposed to warm up today…have a wonderful safe weekend all!...plain and simple.
03-05-14 My Morning Thoughts: “Unnoticed Miracles” Day in and day out I walk by these little miracles and more than often they appear to go unnoticed, maybe a cool breeze that hits me right in the face or a lone seagull flying overhead gracefully floating into the blue sky. I could say I’m too busy today to notice such things or tomorrow I’ll take some time to look around or a million other excuses to prolong the wonders of the world, but if I don’t start now there will be some point in my life to be sure, that when reflecting back, I’ll be saying things like, I should have spent more days enjoying the moments…Today, and every day after, I’m putting forth the effort to notice those little miracles… Whether it be, as simple as the snowflake that hits my tongue or the sunset sizzling in the distance on the lake or everything in between…and as always, the amazing miracles of family and friends I can share these little wonders with…plain and simple.
03-03-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Jungle Book” “Bare necessities those simple bare necessities forget about your worries and your strife”…the best animated cartoon movie (for me) ever! You know why? Well tell the truth now, how many started singing this while you were reading it????...I know there are so many higher-tech animated movies but we can’t forget the classics…plain and simple.
02-26-14-My Morning Thoughts: The Favorite Song? Can there be a favorite song? Could it be just the song we remember playing thousands of times in our lives? I think I probably played thousands of songs thousands of times but the song I played the most was probably “Instant Karma” by john Lennon…”well we all shine on, like the moon and stars and the sun”…what else can I really say about that…plain and simple.
02-25-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Tuesday’s” You know I was thinking that maybe Tuesday is the most forgotten day of the week. I mean everyone talks about the dreaded Monday all the time and the Hump day of Wednesday and Thursdays have become the prequel to the weekend and of course Friday and Saturday are the weekend and Sunday the day of rest…but never a word of Tuesday in comparison. Poor little Tuesday, no wait, come to think of it there use to be a thing called two for Tuesday’s on the radio back in the day! Ya they use to play two songs in a row from the same artist…you see…music brings everything together…Happy Tuesday everyone!!…plain and simple.
02-21-14-My Morning Thoughts: Birthday… What’s in a birthday? Is it a reminder of how far we made it? Could it be how much someone loves us? In a world that fly’s by in a blink of an eye is it a constant that we are still here? It really doesn’t matter much of what a birthday is when you get the chance to say… I love you Mom…happy birthday…plain and simple.
02-20-14-My Morning Thoughts: “would you still love me” If I said I loved the president and all he stood for would you still love me? If I said I think atheists are one hundred percent right would you still love me? If I said I loved all conservatives would you still love me? If I said I loved Christianity would you still love me? I could probably say a bunch of things you may or may not agree with but I would never base my feelings or degrade my respect for anyone because I don’t see exactly eye to eye with them. We may believe in different things some slight and some monumental however we do believe in ‘something’ and that makes us unified with the belief of that ‘something’…sure words can hurt, people can hurt, things can hurt though disagreement should not hurt, it should enlighten at bare minimum in my mind. We are still all human beings! The air we breathe is the same! The problems we face affect all, one way or another! There are plenty of times in life that we may disagree on politics, religion and just about everything else in between…nevertheless…know that I believe in you…and…I still love ya my brothers and sisters!...plain and simple.
02-19-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Give us your tired your poor”… “Give us your tired your poor”…they might have said, tired of being poor…come on in and make your own way…the sky is the limit if you’re willing to work hard for it…welcome brother!...plain and simple.
02-17-14-My Morning Thoughts: is there a problem here? Millions upon millions of dollars spent on new school buildings, new laptops, new everything…but however nice and new and fantastic you make the school experience it boils down to this…time spent educating! First parents then teachers!...this will never change and all parents should realize this. You must have a parent or legal guarding participation throughout the process or the outcome is already written, and it is unfortunately almost never good. There have been monumental statistics that show a teacher alone cannot be the parent and the teacher for every student all the time, it’s just not feasible. Think about this; if a teacher works 30 years and has an average classroom of 20 to 30 students each day, that teacher taught thousands of students in his or her career. Do you think you could teach (and parent) thousands of students? I think even Olivia Walton would have a tough time with that request…not only must it start at home it must finish at home there are no easy ways around it. Parents need accountability for their actions or in some cases lack of their actions to regain some normalcy that works…time spent educating does not just mean those licensed to educate, it’s the total package deal needed for total package recovery…take some time or should I say spend some time and effort and you will be truly amazed at the results…kids will learn, and with the right direction, they will learn well…plain and simple.
02-14-14-My Morning Thoughts: “The Kite” Hey why was the term “Go Fly a Kite” given such bad connotations over the years? If you had enough of the conversation people would say…hey…why don’t you just go fly a kite! I kind of like flying kites! Never did it that much although when I did I always had a good time. It’s relaxing after you get over the part of running down the beach trying to get the darn thing in the air…but when you do…the skies the limit, PUN intended…have a great weekend all and if your ever told to go fly a kite, you might just want to give it a try and smile…plain and simple.
