I finished a project, now I have free time!

Why use destruction when you try to change the world? I never understood that. No matter how bad the system it has to work on some level for someone, so why not just modify the system? Why not start at the bottom and work your way up? That’s how pyramids are built, that’s how worlds are changed.

When you destroy you erase what came before, including the people. Why not build from the people up? Why does our power structure look like an upside down triangle? Do they really collect their information for your benefit, as they tell you? (I love you Google, but I’m looking at you!)

There are problems every day, from people of every shape and size, race and creed, and all walks of life. When will we decide to help even when it’s not to our gain?

I used to be a nice guy, never tried to lie or deceive anyone else. And I have paid for that. Still I make the same mistakes, find myself not wanting to help lift those around me. And when I feel that way, I smile.

Nothings going to change, even when we build from the ground up. As a species, we’re stubborn, full of ourselves, and unwilling to change just for the sake of change.

We need to learn. We need to move on from making the same mistakes. We need to….

Oceans of the World in Color By speedy publishing

I love the ocean and I wished I lived closer to it.  I would be at the beach all the time.  This book has pictures that brings me back to the ocean every time.  It makes me miss not being able to go as often as I would like but I learned something new from this book too. If you love the ocean as I do, you should read this book.  *I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review* 5/5

T is for Tigers by Speedy Publishing

I’ve been told that White Tigers are my “totem” animal.  I have always felt a connection with these wonderful and magnificent creatures. I have enjoyed seeing them in the zoo and I watch any channel they are on.  They fascinate me and make me watch them with great curiosity.  This book has great pictures of these beautiful animals and I enjoyed this book very much. Do you think they are as great and magical as I do?  * I was given this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  5/5

Across the Pond by by Michael McCormick

This book brought lots of memories for me.  My dad was in the Vietnam War and he used to tell me a few stories.  He told me about what he did while there and ARMY songs they sang.  He never told me anything bad, usually.  This book reminded me of my Dad, I lost him 6 years ago and I miss him sooo much everyday.  I enjoyed this book a little more since this made me feel closer to him again and I have always been a little curious about the war because of him.  * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*   4/5

House Divided by Peter G. Pollak

For me, this book was very different than what I had first thought when I read the summary.  I don’t pay too much attention to the news because most of the time it is very sad.  I know nothing about the Israel-Palestine conflict…..it is obvious that the author did a great deal of research. I was intrigued by the unique flow of the story. It was a well-written plot. The characters seem to come alive for me.   This book was very good and I’m glad I gave it a shot. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  4/5
