Gray…a poem

I
think
we
should
start
calling
the
blues
the
grays
because
feeling
down
is
more
like
a
rainy
DARK
sad
gray
kind
of
day
while
all
shades
of
blue
are
beautiful
and
uplifting
like
water
and
the
summer
sky
or
teal
wedgewood
and
robin’s
egg
it’s
time
to
get
it
right
and
I’m
definitely
feeling
gray
today

Is anyone else having trouble with their Reader…here’s what’s going on with mine…

The “COMMENT” sections are missing from your posts.  I want to write to you but there is no place to do it on the Reader, there’s just LIKE and SHARE and even though I can see that comments have been left by others (when the word Comment is there), there is no box for me to jot down a note.  I’ve also noticed that when someone posts more than one thing at a time, the posts are very small and you have to open them all the way to LIKE or even see them.  They are lined up, one after the other and are all tiny boxes in a row.  I don’t know what’s going on but it takes a lot of time to go to a site then go back to your Reader and scroll down until you’re back where you were before leaving.  I don’t know what’s going on…it’s it just my problem or are any of you experiencing the same thing?  Is there anything that can be done to fix this?

Okay, so…

When it says 100% rain, on the weather app, there’s really no place to go after that.  It’s raining.  No leeway.  Yesterday it was 75 and sunny which means that all of us who are sun starved, had a moment of pure joy.  Now the sky is medium gray and it’s going to stay that way all day today and all day tomorrow as well.   That means all the lights in the house will be on, we will spend time wondering why bulbs aren’t 500 watts, instead of 100, and people will be depressed and grumpy again. We’re like the clown who smiles and then runs his hand in front of his face and we see sadness and frowns.  Seriously, we are constantly jerked around by the weather.  It’s like a long con…it pulls you in and we’re happy to be alive and living in Chicago and then it laughs and drops darkness on us for days, sometimes weeks, at a time.  We wonder what’s wrong with us…ask ourselves why we stay here in the snow, freezing temps, DARKNESS, but you have to understand that we are so overwhelmed by one sunny day that we completely forget how terrible our weather actually is…until we getup the next day and it begins again.  There’s something wrong with us, well, yes, on many levels, but I’m writing about those of us who stay here and struggle to survive in the gloom.  There should be a name for it, CAN’T MOVE BECAUSE WHEN IT’S DARK WE DON’T HAVE THE ENERGY TO PACK AND WHEN IT’S SUNNY WE LIKE IT HERE, syndrome.  We name everything, why not that.

Maybe the true meaning of life is:  those who don’t go insane, win.  The only problem with that definition is that perhaps the people who do drop out, live where it’s always sunny.  And who can possible know who is crazy, since it’s more than possible that we are all stark raving mad.  I don’t think we can assume that we aren’t.  But like all of our definitions, they are false, since there is no unbiased, untainted, or sane place to begin.  We have nothing to compare anything to, since we make everything up ourselves and if we are all nuttier than a five pound fruit cake…well…you get my drift.  I’m going to stop typing now so that I can turn on more lights, or go back to bed until the sun comes out for a few minutes later int he week.  Hope your weather is better than ours.

I’ve heard a couple of stories where people are actually apologizing for voting for him.  That gives me hope, in a strange kind of way.

Quote from: Albert Einstein…

“The minority,
the ruling class at present,
has the schools and press,
usually the Church as well,
under its thumb.
This  enables it to organize
and sway the emotions of the masses,
and make its tool of them.”

–Albert Einstein,
in a letter to Sigmund Freud
