STONE
        
  TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING
THROUGH THE DESERT .
DURING SOME POINT OF THE
JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN
ARGUMENT; AND ONE FRIEND
SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE
IN THE FACE    
THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED
WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT
SAYING ANYTHING,
WROTE IN THE SAND ,
TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE ..

THEY KEPT ON WALKING,
UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS,
WHERE THEY DECIDED
TO TAKE A BATH .

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN
SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE
MIRE AND STARTED DROWNING,
BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.

AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM
THE NEAR DROWNING,
HE WROTE ON A STONE:

‘TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SAVED MY LIFE’

THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED
AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND
ASKED HIM, ‘AFTER I HURT YOU,
YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW,
YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?’

THE FRIEND REPLIED
‘WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US
WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN
IN SAND, WHERE WINDS OF
FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.

BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES
SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,
WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
WHERE NO WIND
CAN EVER ERASE IT’

LEARN TO WRITE
YOUR HURTS IN
THE SAND AND TO
CARVE YOUR
BENEFITS IN STONE.

THEY SAY IT TAKES A
MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL
PERSON,  
 AN HOUR TO
APPRECIATE THEM,  
 A DAY
TO LOVE THEM,
  BUT THEN,

AN ENTIRE LIFE
TO FORGET THEM..

Nothing Girl

by Christelle Duvenage
Maybe I wear baggies
and white socks with flip-flops,
maybe I don’t like listening to rave
and I’m not on the social mountaintops,
maybe I don’t care about the things
that make your worlds twirl,
maybe you look at me and think:
Gee, what a nothing girl.Maybe I like giving smiles
which seems to be a sin today,
and maybe I allow my imagination
to sometimes run away,
maybe you don’t understand this
and that’s why you cannot see,
if this make me a nothing girl,
hey, that’s ok with me!The world makes you believe
your personality mustn’t be detected,
your face must be picture perfect
and wear cloths just the best, to be accepted.
Maybe I look at you
and feel sorry that you’re blind,
robots you have became,
yourself you’ll never find.God made you, as well as me,
this means I am something,
the world is a liar
and if I must be a nothing
for you to see it,
then so be it!

 Wild Seagulls Fly

by Munda
A lonely seagull flies the winds
Majestic… soaring…gliding wings
A single screech sounds from the sky
Come fly with me… come here and flyMy spirit floats to be a part
I feel the beating of its heart
My soul, one with this bird of sea
Now knows the meaning to fly freeI feel the winds caress my soul
And soar the streams without a goal
My being trembles of delight
A treasure I received tonight

The seagull’s flight of soaring high
The gift of what it means to fly

Thought we all needed a good laugh today…

 

In Honor of Stupid People
In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed to stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:
On a Sears hairdryer — Do not use while sleeping.
(Shoot, and that’s the only time I have to work on my hair.)
On a bag of Fritos — You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(the shoplifter special)?
On a bar of Dial soap — “Directions: Use like regular soap,”
(and that would be how???….)

 

On Tesco’s Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) — “Do not turn upside down.”
(well…duh, a bit late, huh)!

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding — “Product will be hot after heating.”
(…and you thought????…)

On packaging for a Rowena iron — “Do not iron clothes on body.”
(but wouldn’t this save me more time)?

On Boot’s Children Cough Medicine — “Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication.”
(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)

On Nytol Sleep Aid — “Warning: May cause drowsiness.”
(and…I’m taking this because???….)

On most brands of Christmas lights — “For indoor or outdoor use only.”
(as opposed to…what)?

On a Japanese food processor — “Not to be used for the other use.”
(now, somebody out there, help me on this. I’m a bit curious)

On Sainsbury’s peanuts — “Warning: contains nuts.”
(talk about a news flash)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts — “Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts.”
(Step 3: maybe, ooh…fly Delta?)

On a child’s Superman costume — “Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.”
(I don’t blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

On a Swedish chainsaw — “Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals.”
(Oh my ..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

Now that you’ve smiled at least once, it’s your turn to spread the stupidity.

8-22-09

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She
 hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always
there for her. She told her boyfriend, ‘If I could only see
 the world, I will marry you.’
One day,
someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages
>came off, she was able to see everything, including her
boyfriend.
 He asked
 her,’Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?’ The
girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The
 sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn’t expected
that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
 led her to refuse to marry him.
 Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her
 saying: ‘Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before
 they were yours, they were mine.’

This is
 how the human brain often works when our status changes.
 Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who
was always by their side in the most painful situations. Life Is a
Gift
 Today
before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who can’t
speak.

A Sailor’s Prayer

Though my sails be torn and tattered,

and my mast be turned about,

let the night wind chill me to my very soul,

thought the salt spray might sting my eyes,

and the stars no light provide,

just let me another morning light behold.

Remember The Dream
by James Ingram

You have a choice
Your heart will know
You gotta look back sometime
To know where to go

You have a voice
Long as you live
It’s never too small
Whatever you got to give

When your life is low (hold on)
And you want to let go (be strong – hold on)

Remember the dream we had
When there was nothing else
Remember the light that shines
And find it in yourself
Remember the dream is yours
So let it guide your way
And keep it alive with you each day

Don’t ever say
You just don’t care
the chances you take
Will take you as far as you dare

Don’t be afraid
Hold your head high
There’s strength in your soul
You never know till you try

When your life is low (hold on)
And you want to let go (be strong — hold on)

You’re not alone .. somebody cares
(Hold on …be strong)
When you’re walkin’ the road
With those who been there
(You’re not alone)

Remember the dream is yours
So let it guide your way
And keep it alive with you each day.

The Heights Within You

By Jack Williams

You have often felt tied down

And dreamed of being free,

Of fulfilling the potential

Of who you want to be.

Now you’ve finally earned your wings,

It’s time for you to soar

And reach the heights within you,

That’s what wings are for.

Angels are Always With Us

A story of Barbara’s Angels

gaurdianangelcloud

Above the Tree Top

In 2007 I got breast cancer and I was extremely upset. In December, I woke one morning and saw two girls, my guardian angels, standing next to my bed. I had such a peaceful feeling. Afterwards, I always wished to see them again. In fall 2008 (about 10 months after I saw my guardian angels), I was upset and I asked my angels to give me a sign that they were still with me. A couple of hours later, when letting my dogs out in the backyard, something told me to look up. There was the angel cloud. Of course, that was the confirmation I was looking for.

“It takes a little courage, and a little self-control. And some grim determination, If you want to reach the goal. It takes a great deal of striving, and a firm and stern-set chin. No matter what the battle, if you really want to win, there’s no easy path to glory. There is no road to fame. Life, however we may view it, Is no simple parlor game; But its prizes call for fighting, For endurance and for grit; For a rugged disposition that will not quit.”

Oh, the Things That We Feel

Oh, the things that we feel as we walk through our years

As we look back and swim in the lakes of our tears

Oh, the things that we learn as we walk through our youth

As we lose our first love, as we lose our first tooth

Oh, we walk through our days with our heads in the sand

How we look up and find we are holding a hand

Oh, the things that we see as we look to the past

How we always assumed that forever would last

We question decisions and analyze words

Of a time that is gone, that flew south with the birds

We remember advice from a time so far back

And we see it’s a gift, it is not an attack

We envision the faces of people we knew

Wondering what with their lives did they do

We look at old pictures, hear songs we once sung

We discover the beauty we missed being young

How we never were happy and never at ease

As we plunged into waters as deep as we pleased

To discover that beauty is not what we’d thought

It was there all along, it was not what we sought.

And we view our parents in a whole different light

Though we always knew deep down inside they were right

Oh, how they prepared us for oceans and streams

How they taught us to swim and to follow our dreams

We look up from the water to see that we’re there

And we open our doors to the people who care

As we look back and swim in the lakes of our tears

Oh, the things that we feel as we walk through the years

Label This!

You don’t have to listen

To the rumors and hype

Or let others brand you

With a steriotype.

Youdon’t need the clothes,

Or the shoes, or the car

Just believe in yourself and be who you are.

You can try hard in school

Without being a geek,

Causethere’s way more to life

Than the popular clique.

Joining the band doesn’t make you uncool.

It’s those who say otherwise who are the fools.

Join a team, or a club, or try out for the play

Don’t wait any longer, go for it today.

You don’t have to be great, just get out there and start

And whatever you do, let it come from the heart

Be it music, or writing, or drama, or sports,

Don’t let anyone else make you think you fall short.

Oh, the things you can do,

If you be who you are,

Just be true to yourself, and you will go far.

Oh, the people you’ll meet

Of all different kinds

Just forget about labels

And open your mind.

Oh, the things you will learn

And the worlds you will see

If you say to yourself

“I’m glad to be me!”

5-15-09

If you see a tall fellow ahead of a crowd,

A leader of men, marching fearless and proud.

And you know of a tale whose mere telling aloud

Would cause his proud head in aunguish be bowed,

It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

If you know of a skeleton hidden away

In a closet, and guarded, and kept from the day

In the dark, and whose showing, whose sudden display

Would cause grief and sorrow and pain and dismay

It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

If you know of a tale that will darken the joy

Of a man or a woman, a girl or a boy.

That will wipe out a smile or the least bit annoy

A fellow, or cause any gladness to cloy,

It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

Judd Mortimer Lewis

STONE

TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING
THROUGH THE DESERT.

DURING SOME POINT OF THE
JOURNEY THEY HAD AN
ARGUMENT AND ONE FRIEND
SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE
IN THE FACE.

THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED
WAS HURT BUT WITHOUT
SAYING ANYTHING WROTE IN THE SAND.

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND

SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.

THEY KEPT ON WALKING,
UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS
WHERE THEY DECIDED
TO TAKE A BATH

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN
SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE
MIRE AND STARTED DROWNING,
BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.
AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM
THE NEAR DROWNING HE WROTE ON A STONE

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE

THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED
AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND
ASKED HIM; AFTER I HURT YOU,
YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW

YOU WRITE ON A STONE…. WHY?’

THE FRIEND REPLIED
WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US
WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN
IN SAND WHERE WINDS OF
FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.

BUT WHEN SOMEONE DOES
SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,

WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
WHERE NO WIND CAN EVER ERASE IT.

LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS
IN THE SAND AND TO CARVE YOUR
BENEFITS IN STONE.

THEY SAY IT TAKES A
MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL PERSON.
AN HOUR TO APPRECIATE THEM,

A DAY TO LOVE THEM,

BUT AN ENTIRE LIFE TO FORGET THEM

  12. Once again some great arguments in the discussion on whether knoweldge should be accessible to all. Unanticipated use is exactly how knowledge can be furthered, and networked scholarship also allows those of us outside academia to follow and perhaps even occasionally participate in knowledge creation.
    So keep up the good work!

  13. Very deep thoughts..so, who would think that knowledge should not be accessible to all?

  14. thanks for the cables ,very good
