Not religious me

ReligionOther peoples religious thoughts are nothing new, they all come and go, stop then flow…

They might carry on, I might carry on or not, who knows?  The way we use and abuse the planet and all who sail on her, maybe none of us will carry on into the future…

I’ve said it before though and I swear by it:    How it’s so much easier to be tolerant of religious people, if they are kind to other sentient beings.

Genesis 1.29

Personally I am not religious, apart from my intention to religiously brush my teeth more than once a day.

 

Dance blog

ImportantI am going to create a separate dance blog.  All the dance references on here will “puff!” disappear and at a later date will “puff!” appear on that blog jiggled about with and improved on.  Why?  because I am creating costumes, props and accessories to sell on etsy and fancy keeping a separate blog just about what we get up to dancing and the creation of the costumes.  There will be much more details and photos (I am currently filling the media with images too).  So, anyone who will be interested in that, well sweethearts look out for Dragonfly Dancers.

Private setting

Of course this blog post will self destruct at some point when it all comes together shortly.  The usual intrinsic blogs of my ramblings will continue to churn out poems, events, random shite etc… enjoy.  I think this little random blog has been great practice of everything from typing speed to spelling and the like too.

P.S. Spot the spelling mistake on the first image!

D is for

D is forI know it sounds bad to “Dump someone”, but sometimes self preservation insists!

Other people’s words are actually nothing to do with us and it’s actually all about them.  It’s their perceptions, what’s going on with them, how they are conducting their life and they might need help with this, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to do it!

If there’s a choice of who to share OUR life with, and if someone gives us the gift of them speaking their mind or in other ways show us into their world towards us and it’s all negative, driving us crazy and making our life a misery, then making a sound choice (based on that track record) means backing off.  Note however:  If there’s a possibility of physically abuse, you will need help to leave safely and to stay safe once you have left.Same thing playingI get the feeling, that to stay in a relationship out of choice with a D track record towards you is to enable them to do the same thing over and over.  They might become more of a [Bexy turned the air blue and went all EXPLETIVES] and they might think it’s okay to be [BEXY made the air turn blue again with EXPLETIVES].

An average life span is not that long and surely living it as an enabler to a [EXPLETIVE] is a pretty crappy existence, right? and So please beloved, don’t waste your time left on this beautiful planet, but have some compassion and kindness unto your sweet self as an Equal with others!

Beloved [EXPLETIVE] be warned, if you know your being [EXPLETIVE] do something about your perceptions, question your thinking, get help, speak gratitude, get a new attitude, because if you piss people off enough, they might piss off and stay that way.

Dance cane

Belly dance caneI was looking at YouTube to find a way to make a belly dance cane out of a garden bamboo cane, especially bending that little bit at the top.  I want to not waste/spend money on some import from hundreds of miles away.   However, I wasn’t successful for that, but found and loved this YouTube clip, all about bending really thick pieces of bamboo 90 degrees:

How to Bend Bamboo in a 90 degree angle

In the meantime I’m going to try soaking the ends of the garden canes in boiling water, see if that softens it enough to bend them round something, then letting them cool and dry.  I get the feeling this might work, might, perhaps?  As for the painting and decorating bit, well that will be a breeze and a joy.  Finally hitting the floor and twirling it over my head like a loon dancing of course!

Wait, wait, reforming ideas, now I’ve just found a winning dance without the saidi canes having to be curved at the end:

This also made me want to never cut my hair again and use it in future as a prop!

Remember to click on words in my posts that have lines under them, this will open up a link to images and the like to enhance my meanings.  Thank you.

Unknown

Until this afternoon I will not know what type of waste wooden off cuts are being delivered.  Will they be pieces I can upcycle and make things with or to burn and keep me warm during the winter?  I’m happy with the unknown.

The unknown becomes clear in it’s own time. 

I am the same with other things to do with the future, the future of me, the future of my family and friends and also with the universe.  I will be or not be and I don’t feel the need to Shakespeare an impertinent question at the unknown.
