(Tomorrow-- It's Easy Like Sunday Morning!)
Isn't it cool when the title has nothing to do with the post?
I have received in the past two weeks, something I hold near and dear to my Heart!
BOOKS !!!!! HOLD IN YOU HAND TURN THE PAGE BOOKS!
YES, I want an E-reader too!
One from Cloudia Charters- a beautiful Soul Sista from
Ha Va ii! (see Comfort Spiral in side bar), as well as two books on poetry from an awesome Brother in Detroit, Mark Durfee, Whom you will find as The Walking Man in sidebar.
Get these books! I have not been asked, paid, cajolled, nor endorsed to advertise these awesome worksof art! Info is on their sites!
LuLu--Please see Lulu- #1 in sidebar--one of my closest Blogger friends- are
probably going to start a Book Club. We can keep it short and easy and maybe dedicate one day a week to a chapter or so, depending on the book--and then relish and grow from others comments!!!! We can make this NOT a chore, as so many of us are stretched thin Blogging as it is: but if the desire is there, the time will be found MADE!
I know this is not new, but the discussions will not be equaled ANYWHERE when our collective Dys- FUNK- tional families weigh in!
We will start with Cloudia's- Aloha--Where You Like Go,--see her site.
WHY? Because we both have it and are reading it, and it is as powerful as any read to start with. I guess I better ask Clou...wait-- I bought the dang thing (snicker)! LOL--and it DOES NOT DISAPPOINT! There is so much that can be discussed in this phenomenal read!
These books are very affordable and Very relevant for the challenging times, we face daily. We could do selected Poem's from Marks two books, as we work on another read. His Poem's can take a while to digest--and evoke strong visceral responses, as many of you who read him, already comment.
I'm speaking early, but from what I know of both of them, they will lend insight and knowledge into our comments. Mark is a Teacher, and Cloudia is wise beyond her years! (She's only 7!) Please see BOTH sites for ordering details.
We can wait until after the Año Nuevo.. as a lot is going on this time of year! However we WILL start soon. The books are more than affordable and enjoyable, (less that $10-15:00 including shipping!!!) - and it will help two of our friends. You can follow along and still enjoy the quotes and comments while waiting on the books, or deciding if this is for you!
We can't wait too long as procrastination kills INSPIRATION! Yes, Yes--you can quote me on th@ !! Like the @ instead of .....sorry.
I don't know how to do this format in the best way--maybe LuLu does.... But we want to start our own, with our Blogger Family and Friends! And the format is not as important as the CONTENT!-- (Yes--quote me!) Dang I'm good today!
Another thought I had was to do: THE SHACK, together.
Or SHACK UP TOGETHER--SEND PIC! ar ar
Maybe already read, as Queen Oprah mentioned it a couple of years ago in her book club. (And what she says goes instant bestseller). ALSO SHE IS STARTING A NEW NETWORK : POWER! Talk about being able to push an agenda. And, NO, I do not think she is evil...I just think too many people follow without questioning anything ANYMORE!
If you've already read it (I have, BUT OVER A YEAR AGO--SO IT WILL BE FRESH)--
what more could we glean from a re-read, and the COMMENTS and dialog afforded by first time readers of this Book may truly open up our minds, bring some together, closer than before, and possible cause a little heated
dissension- discussion ---which is almost always beneficial.
Iron Sharpens Iron.
Where is ORIGINAL THOUGHT today?
I'll tell you where!
ON BLOGGER/BLOGS! YOU PEOPLE ARE AWESOME!!!
Let's think for Ourselves Folks! Sheep are dumb followers...and they can provide the WOOL that can be pulled over our eyes! You have to be careful who the Shepherd is, and where you are being led! Ummm, Big Government, Wall Street, Banks..The ALL STABLE AMERICAN DOLLAR: It was so hard not to laugh/cry at this point!!!!...OK--Enough!
We learn, when we are challenged to get out of our comfort zones & self-absorbed righteousness!
OK- Is That Preachy enough???
