——————— About this post: I am creating something every day this month. That is, until yesterday when I felt overwhelmed by so much technology. I did not have the energy to complete my personal challenge to post for Day 9 of #NaBloPoMo18 or #Create30. And today’s prompt is Day 11 Prompt: “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, don’t you think?”
My post today may address both of those prompts visually.
The photos are from my a bloom-filled day touring the Strip and Downtown Las Vegas yesterday.
Day 10 prompt: “Social media has become our measure of worth. You wake up to find out society has evaluated you based on social media’s feedback. Write to tell us how your typical day is based on this new form of evaluation.
Alternative topic: is technology going too far based on that system?”
Lead by example. Stand up to bullies. Give love to hate. Speak truth to power.
I consider maxims like these to be simple truths. I hope these truths can provide a moral compass to guide us through harrowed times. Yet I know that time rolls on and truth seems to be a matter of perspective.
‘There once was a siren at sea Who said, ‘I doth call out to thee Drawing you from the shore Just for my fins to adore Only for us to swim in fish pee
I wrote this limerick today after watching the movie “Jaws” and considering the word prompt, “Relish,” from The Daily Post. I doodled the image of the mermaid two years ago for my post, “Mid-Week Mermaid.”
____________ Sunday, September 27, 2015 (Total Lunar Eclipse). I wrote this haiku and created the image using ArtRage 4 while envisioning tonight’s sky and listening to Bonnie Tyler sing the song “Total Eclipse of the Heart” written by Jim Steinman.
____________ Wednesday, June 17, 2015. I created the image “Blue Fish Heart Patch” and wrote the haiku “Fishy Love: A Hearty Tale for Two” to celebrate dual anniversaries for my own mended heart—my open heart surgery and my marriage. I created the image with ArtRage 4.
Sunday dinners can provide for lasting memories–especially when enjoyed with family. For tonight’s dinner, we prepared an Italian style meal of braised beef short ribs, creamy polenta, and fresh crab salads. Each dish was a labor of love. As we chopped, cracked, poured, simmered, and braised the food, we shared fantastic tales of childhood drama and intrigue. I felt so blessed to enjoy such a special meal.
This is the the last post for the challenge to post daily during National Blog Posting Month, otherwise known as NaBloPoMo.
