Frozen 2:

It’s the last movie I watched.


Frozen hearts need thawing with warmth

Give them love unconditionally and understanding

Even when you feel that they don’t care

Deep down their love is alive, just buried

Under the burden of broken hopes and dreams

It is difficult to be close to them, I know

But it is the greatest gesture of selfless love

When you make them feel your love

Without expecting anything in return

Stream of Consciousness Saturday & JusJoJan- 11th January 2020

Linda is the host of JusJoJan & SoCS.

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “the first 3 words of the first full sentence.” Okay, follow me here. This is what I want you to do: 1. Grab the closest book to you when you sit down to write your post. 2. Open it to a random page. 3. Locate the first complete sentence on that page. 4. Use the first three words of that sentence to start your post, then take it from there–write whatever comes to mind. That’s it! Have fun!

“When I lay down to sleep.. I am assailed by many thoughts. Thoughts that keep me awake. Did I do any good today? Was I kind or unkind to those around me? Was I fair or unfair?

These are thoughts that come from my conscience. It wants to know did I followed my own advice or there is a dichotomy between my thoughts, words, and deeds. I often fail this test. Often there are things that I did which I shouldn’t have done, like losing my temper or being sarcastic and cutting in my remarks. When I fail this daily inquisition I feel bad. And I ask for forgiveness to God and vow to do better the next day.

I am glad that my conscience is alive. I am glad that it questions my actions and takes me to task for not doing my duty or for doing something that I shouldn’t have.

As many people have remarked often that time is flying by; one day blending into another and days into weeks. If we don’t keep a track of our actions, we lose our way in this rapid stream of time and life.

Keep your conscience awake, well and kicking. And do listen to it.

A good night’s rest comes when our conscience is easy, at peace!

~*~

How else can we say what you want if not now?

A meow or an ew can express our feelings well

Low or bow, tow or sow

Mowing all the ows can be interesting

Or we can bring an owl into the snow

A glow of joy on the rapid flow of words

From your mind onto the paper

May it never slow down ever!

All this may not make much sense, but it sure fits the Prompt for SoCS and JusJoJan.

Thanks for reading this non-sense!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “year.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

~*~

Year end,

New year

A year in review

New year’s resolutions

I’d rather have goals for the coming year

Easier to accomplish and stick to

Not a lot of pressure if I fail to reach it within the year

There’s always the next one to reach them.

Hope you all have a fantastic new year

But don’t overdo on the new year’s eve

Make resolve to be kind and thoughtful

Help each other so at the end

We can be proud of ourselves

And be happier and contented

Happy new year!

Just a single Pringle can make my tongue tingle with that special taste. So I head out to the local store where a tingle of the bell on the door announces my arrival. The Christmas music is playing on a loop and the jingle bells drive me crazy. But needs must so I mingle with the shoppers which are milling around like headless chickens, in search of my favorite flavor of Pringles. After a long search, I find it but it’s the last one and as I reach for it, a chubby hand grabs it and puts it in his mom’s cart.

I walk out of the store, a Sorry sight to behold. No Pringles, no tingle. Just me single!!!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday 14 December 2019

Linda is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “loud.” Find any word that means “loud,” and use it any way you’d like in your post. Enjoy!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

~*~

Loud music, loud colors and loud people! Out of all these, I like loud colors the best. Especially as I age, I like brighter colors more than when I was younger. Red, rust, orange, yellow, turquoise, greens and pink. I cannot wear some of them. But I still like to have them around my home.

Loud music is something I like when in the mood. Like on a brisk walk I prefer it loud with a good beat. It makes me more likely to walk longer and of course, enjoy it too.

Now loud people are not a favorite at all. In fact, I don’t like the bossy, flashy and dominant type of person at all. Those who need to use a loud voice to tell us what they want, need our feel are totally off-putting.

Sometimes being clear and precise is better than being loud!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday- December 7, 2019

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousness Saturday

Here’s your prompt for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “key.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

~*~

The key to getting the desired results in anything is good planning. If we plan right, the results will be as we want. In anything, we do, planning plays a great role. To be able to blog stress-free planning is again the key. Sometimes the key is lost under all the irrelevant stuff we deal with. Staying focused can be the key to success. Whatever key you employ, one is sure to open the door. And if it doesn’t, go to the key maker and get another one made. I had to pay $75 when the key to our apartment fell down the elevator shaft and was lost to humankind forever. The admin told me that the stiff fee was to teach us to take better care of our keys!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday- November 30,2019- 50 Shades of happy

Linda is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday.


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “shade.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy

~*~

Though most people are at this time of the year, celebrating reasons for giving thanks and being grateful, for me, gratitude is an all year long phenomenon. Not just one day. I have reasons to be 50 shades of happy at all that I and my family is blessed with. It is not a narcissist attitude, I think to count your blessings when faced with someone who either is not so blessed or is ignorant of them. My Father-in-law, who had a great influence on modifying my thinking used to always draw our attention to this fact whenever we ran across someone who would complain consistently about something missing in their life. If you see someone with a negative attitude, be thankful that you are not like that. If you run across someone who has physical and mental issues, first of all, give thanks that you are not suffering in that way and then do try to help them in whatever way possible. This makes us realize each and every day, how blessed we really are. It makes us grateful and happy.

It is true that a grateful heart can never be unhappy.

So May you always be under all the shades of happiness.

Stay happy and blessed!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday November 23- 2019

Linda is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “flyer/ad.” Look at the latest ad you got in the mail (if it’s a store flyer, choose the product right in the middle of the page) or choose the next online ad you find, and theme your post on whatever the product is.

~*~

I am in the unique position that I neither watch TV or read magazines or newspapers. The only ads I am exposed to are those which pop up when I start my card games.

And the most frequent one that pops up is Facebook.

And what can I say about Facebook!

I loved it at first and so did, I think millions of people around the world. Connecting with friends and family from all parts of the country or world and sharing parts of our lives with them. It looked all good. But as with all new things, we soon discovered problems. It became too intrusive. One part of the society was exposing too much of their life on it while the other half was getting envious of their lifestyle!

Then we discovered that the privacy of our lives was also being violated by the data collected by Facebook and its related companies.

As the bubble of FB burst for me, my usage of FB has become almost non-existent. It was a great idea. It’s execution and usage leaves much to be desired.

~*~

I had a dream

I dreamt that I was in

A world where we loved

Each other irrespective of

How we looked and spoke

The color of skin didn’t matter

Race and ethnicity was irrelevant

I wish that this dream that I dream

That I share with millions others

Becomes a reality in my lifetime
