Shout-Outs and Gratitude

 

“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
― John F. Kennedy

 

So often it seems we blog in a vacuum. I send out these words and pictures in the hopes that someone will enjoy them but especially at the beginning had no idea whether this was the case. Gradually the numbers of views climb and the numbers of subscribers and it becomes a rather heady feeling. People are looking at what I’m doing and they wish to see more of it. People start liking posts and leaving comments and that is very cool indeed. There have been few things as gratifying for me then the fact that something I have created has brought about interaction. The people who have commented on my blog have been thoughtful and appreciative and often caused me to think further about what I write about. Many of them have amazing blogs of their own that make me think and smile and generally blow my mind with the talent that they show.
John Clinock at Art Rat Cafe (http://johnclinockart.com) is an amazing writer, artist (in many different media) and poet. To visit his blog is to walk in beauty and thoughtfulness.
Dale Cooper (http://diaryofaninternetnobody.com/) writes amazingly thought provoking blogs and has amazingly creative and interesting videos.
Agnes Khooschwenk (http://dawnofdivinerays.wordpress.com) is a one stop-shop of modern spirituality. Her coverage both in her own blog entries and her reblogging of others casts a wide and wonderful net.
JK (http://thesecretkeeper.net) also has a far-ranging blog that consists of her own writing and art and media reviews of others. She brings amazing insight to the subjects she covers.
Kalabalu (http://kalabalu.wordpress.com) has a fun and fascinating blog.
Lori Buff of Future Relics Gallery (http://networkedblogs.com/TiBkl) is an amazing potter, humorous and talented writer and the friend who has known me the longest. Please check out her blog and her art.

Once started, it is difficult to stop giving shootouts to those who have encouraged and inspired so much in me. Not to mention those who’s blogs have given me hours of thought and diversion. For those not yet mentioned here, I will shortly be doing a sequel. You are appreciated beyond measure.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – November 23 2011

“A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.”
–John F. Kennedy

Yet the market seems to have closed and truth too often seems determined by the highest bidder. Really feeling random this evening so I may just go streaming my consciousness on this one folks.

  • People in general, when they either see an image of Hitler or hear mention of him attached to an argument lose the ability to speak or act rationally. It seems the fastest way to either ignite the argument beyond any ability of the rational to rein it in or end it.

  • I see so many interesting questions to debate and even more aspects of other questions that I find it hard to understand people who argue by insulting someone with an opposing point of view. Do  I have less attachment and thus less conviction to any question at hand or do I just enjoy having questions more than answers.

  • Still seeing how many licks it takes to get me to the centre of the Tootsie-Pop..Wow don’t know if that demonstrates my age or my attachment to the media

  • I have now seen photos of that pepper-spraying cop spraying every being from  Munch’s the scream to the Beatles on the Abbey Road album. I feel amusement but also concern. This police officer nonchalantly sprayed a number of non-violent students at the University of California in Davis point blank range in their faces. At the very least I feel he should lose his job if not be jailed for assault. Do I want to in any way think of that as being cute or amusing? I don’t believe I do.

  • Love and experiencing joy in simple things beats just about anything.

Namaste, GAR
