Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday and JusJoJan 16 January 2021

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday and JusJoJan

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first thing.” Start your post with the words, “first thing” and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

First thing that a baby does when it arrives in this world, she gives a loud cry! Where am I? What’s this new place, open bright, and full of strangers. Where is the cozy womb, dark and comforting, which held me safe for so many months?

Then she adjusts, nurtured by her mom and family, and grows up to love this new bigger world. Life goes on and there comes a time when it ends.

Now it’s time to go back into a small dark space but it won’t be warm or cozy. It’ll be cold and hard earth.

We will all go through this cycle and there is a beginning and an end. But it need not end with death. We can leave good memories and deeds behind. People who knew us would remember us fondly and we can live in their hearts and minds.

JusJoJan + Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Linda is the host of JusJoJan and Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sky’s the limit.” Write about something that has or seems to have no end. Enjoy!

➰➰➰➰➰➰

There seems to be no end to his ambitions

The sky is the limit he would often say

All his zeal and enthusiasm are directed

Toward not his own glory but to that of his baby

His baby is not his child but his brainchild

A most beloved project which consumes all his energy

I salute his devotion, his commitment to this cause

An organization that gives interest-free loans

To the poor, down-on-their-luck- people, without collateral

And the surprising thing is that most people give back

Not only what they borrow but also become donors too

That one act of kindness begets thousands more

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

(This poem is about an organization created and run by very good family friends and does an amazing job)

JusJoJan- Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- January 2, 21

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “in the corner.” Write about whatever the image or thought of “in the corner” brings to mind. Have fun!

➰➰➰➰➰➰

Go stand in the corner!

Have you ever been the one told to?

Or were you the one telling someone to do so?

Why do people have to punish with humiliation

Why cannot discipline be enforced through reasoning

One thing that I am so glad about that has changed with time

Is now we all are cognizant that all people, young or old

Have dignity that should be respected, never be trampled over

And punishment shouldn’t ever be a form of humiliation

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- 19 December 2020

Linda is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday

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

➰➰➰➰➰➰

You attract me, oh so much!

Like a magnet, I feel pulled towards you

I cannot resist your charm, your allure

I promise myself that I would be strong

But every day, I break this promise just for a glimpse

A small bite, a taste of your excellent goodness

How can I ever resist a piece of dark chocolate?

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- Mini- Maxi

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mini/maxi.” Use “mini” (the smallest of something) or “maxi” (the largest) or both in your post. Have fun!

➰➰➰➰➰➰

Mini-chocolates anyone?

Used to love eating those one bite bounties, Twix, and Reese’s peanut butter cups. Not anymore though. Not that I don’t love them but don’t eat them now because of the sugar. Now I am always on the lookout for sugar-free chocolates, a mini or maxi bar, whatever I can get. But for some reason with the pandemic, sugar-free chocolates have become scarce. They are either not available at all or are available at many times their original price.

I wonder why?

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- 5 December 2020

Linda is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “list.” Make or talk about a list. Enjoy!

➰➰➰➰➰➰➰

The ship is listing precariously

A few leaks have sprung up in places

No one wants to go down with the sinking ship

All are ready to jump ship and save themselves

No one investigates why the ship is taking water

Why a formerly sturdy vessel is in danger right now

There is a need to show some loyalty and care

For this vessel that has housed us for long

Fetch a pail to bail out the water accumulated

Or grab some tools to fix the leaks to help this ship stay afloat

There is no guarantee that if you jump from this listing ship

You’ll find another safer vessel to take you on board

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- November 28, 2020

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “opt.” Use it as a word or find a word with “opt” in it and base your post on that. Have fun! 

~*~*~

After a lot of evolution, our internet connection is now fiber optic. When we started using the dial-up connection through the phone line, we were thrilled that it was happening. Remember the way it connected with beeps and tones and then slowly we got access to the internet .

Then the next step was the internet providers which gave us the service through the coaxial cable. Another jump in the speed of the data downloading and now we could watch programs and movies via the internet.

Just recently, a company has started providing the internet through fiber optic cable and now we seriously get high-speed internet. I am glad we opted for this service. It was a bit more expensive than our previous one but the benefits are great.

When we get the choice, we should opt for the latest technology if we can afford it. It enhances our experience.

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- November 21, 2020

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last thing you put in your fridge.” Start your post with the last thing you put in your fridge. Let your mind wander from there. Enjoy!

~*~*~

A box of milk

A dash of sweet honey

Makes my mug of steaming hot coffee

All that I need to start my day in style

What this day will bring

It is still shrouded in the mists of early dawn

Whatever is in store for today, good or bad

I will have to deal with it, willingly or otherwise

I hope that my day ends on a positive note

That what went on was dealt with good grace

That it would be chalked up on my calendar

As a day where I did the best I could

Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday- 14 November 2020

Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ring.” Use it as a noun, a verb, an adverb, or an adjective…use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

~*~*~*~

He gave me a ring

A diamond ring to celebrate our love

Now that we are married, he never bothers to give me a ring, that is he never calls except when to tell me he will be late. Where are the words of love, where is the romance now?

I just hope he is not running rings around me by chasing someone else. Should I put a ring through his nose and tie him to my apron string?

~*~*~*~

All this silliness is just fiction!
