Live a Deliberate Life

And then there was this :-). A wonderfully written post, and an even more wonderful reminder, by a friend and fellow writer. Enjoy!

See. Seek. Find.

Three outlandish wishes today:

  1. I want make a living on my writing and photography.
  2. I want to travel the world.
  3. I want a family.
  4. I want all of my loved ones to be safe, happy, and healthy.

Okay, I made four. The first three are selfish ones focused on me – ha, ha! It’s the three things I want the most. The last one, though, is the most important. I want everyone I love to be safe, happy, and healthy.

I’m really struggling right now trying to figure out what I want most so this was a good exercise to think about. On the one hand, I want to continue to be selfish and on my own and travel and take pictures. But, in many ways, this is a very empty life. In 20 years, what will I have to show for it? Just a lot of pictures and maybe…

On Muslim Women’s Day, let’s just remember they’re human too.

Thought you might enjoy seeing things from another perspective. Thank you Zen for sharing!

Zen Scribbles

So apparently today is the first Muslim Women’s Day ever. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that until I clicked on the trending hashtag on Twitter, and then I was promptly disgusted. There are so many misconceptions, so many views depicting Muslim women as beaten-down creatures that are basically slaves to men, so much sarcasm about how it’s sooooo great to be a Muslim woman on this day.

As a Muslim woman, I have a few things to say. This rant bubbling inside me just won’t die.

I’ve never spoken about my religion on this blog, mainly because I like to keep my religious and political views out of my writing and “public persona”, but here goes nothing.

There was never a time when I wasn’t a Muslim. My parents are devout Muslims, and I grew up in a conservative household. I wore my hijab at the age of 9…

Keeping me on my toes for sure. Another good post from Ends and Beginnings.

Flexible Flyers_in_Snow

I grew up in a large city in the Southeast. When I was a kid of eight or nine I remember getting several big snows each year, the kind that cancelled school for two or three days. Now why I remember this is because I lived next door to “the hill”.

For any of you unfamiliar with the term “the hill” this is spot where kids within a three-mile radius would come and sled. In an other otherwise flat world “the hill” was our Mount Everest.

I had a hand-me-down Flexible Flyer from my older cousins who lived down the street from us. For whatever reason when they hit fourteen they became to cool to sled but I wasn’t. For the next three or four years I wore that sled out, literally. It’s final voyage was right before Christmas when I was eleven. Screaming down “the hill” I had to make…

Alexis Chateau PR Launches Media Relations Services

PR Services weren’t something I thought I could afford as an indie, self-published author, but it’s a service I NEED so the investment is warranted. Luckily, Ms. Chateau came along and well…I don’t want to give anything away, just keep an eye on Nowata Press. Meanwhile, check out Alexis Chateau PR. You won’t regret it.

Alexis Chateau PR

Atlanta, GA – On March 18, 2017, Alexis Chateau PR quietly launched its media relations services, as a new and powerful tool for its clients. The new service will include not just seeking media placements, but providing media coaching, as well.

The move comes after the Atlanta-based PR agency landed half a dozen published media placements in the past two weeks alone. A quick glance at the brand’s social media pages tells the tale.

He started it

So aptly describes the majority of my feelings. Ends & Beginnings is a great blog to read not just because the author and I agree on many a subject, but because he has a wide variety of well written posts that help give me new perspectives on life. Definitely check him out :-).

This country is divided and honestly that isn’t really anything new. As much as I hate labels for the purpose of this post and for the sake of clarity I am going to define the two sides as the Right and the Left. I wish there were more sides, at least three to choose from but I am afraid whatever middle ground that once existed has simply eroded away.

Now for any of you that may be first time readers of my blog I used to exist somewhat in the middle but leaning much more to the Left. That all changed when I was forced to pick a side and yes I was forced, think football, Alabama or Auburn, Ohio or Michigan.

You see from my perspective, in the middle on the Left, the Right simply got too nasty, starting with the guy that yelled “F*ck you” to me simply because I had…

Post ferguson lessons still not learned…

Amen. Check out the rest of Don’s blog. It is a refreshingly honest perspective. Thank you Don :-).

don of all trades

I was cleaning out my drafts folder a little bit when I came across this post. I was asked by CNN to write a post for them a couple of years ago, I think during the Fersuson rioting, and either I never sent it to them or, more likely, I did and they didn’t use it. Either way, it’s pretty clear that my hope here for things to get better not only between the police and citizens, but among all citizens, is not only not happening , but are unbelievably, getting worse.

————————————————-

I’ve not intentionally sat down to watch more than five or ten minutes of news coverage about Ferguson since Michael Brown was shot.

He was laid to rest on Monday, and I didn’t watch that either.

What little I have seen has come from social media or other readable sources. I just can’t bear to watch people…

The Walled Off Hotel: Banksy Opens Dystopian Tourist Attraction In Bethlehem With The “Worst View In The World”

Not that we’ll get to see it any time soon what with what is laughingly (NOT) passing as the American government these days. This, my friends, is a shining example of protest art at its finest. Thank you Crystal Russom for posting.

The Little Things

Nestled against the barrier wall separating Israel from the Palestinian territories, controversial street artist Banksy has built a fully-functioning hotel, complete with a bar, museum and gallery of politically-charged artworks by the anonymous artist himself.

True to the British artist’s demeanour, The Walled Off Hotel – which was once an old pottery workshop – was developed completely under the radar over 14 months, and even building staff weren’t aware the project was on his behalf.

According to Banksy’s website, “it’s exactly one hundred years since Britain took control of Palestine and started re-arranging the furniture – with chaotic results… the aim [of the hotel] is to tell the story of the wall from every side and give visitors the opportunity to discover it for themselves.”

Living in a Dystopia yet?

Wow. Keep questioning, keep digging, keep your eyes open and go until you find facts that are as close to true as possible. Articles like this keep me searching.

The Dystopian Nation of City-State

If you haven’t figured it out yet, yes you are. Here is a perfect example:

Buzzfeed found that two “news” sites – one very liberal and one very conservative – were actually owned by the same company. Both sides reported on the same stories, used the same sources, and the same level of outrage over a certain event. Lets just call it event x.

Turned out that they don’t sell news or information. They are selling outrage. Whipping people up into a frenzy by using the CONFIRMATION BIAS of the respective IDEOLOGIES to SPIN news stories. Apparently these sites are very popular, garnering millions of followers on facebook.

Why wouldn’t they be popular? All they do is tell you what you already believe. They give you that feeling that someone is there for you – on your side. But they’re not. Because they are telling the opposing side the same…
