OUR FOUNDING FATHERs' ROLLING IN THEIR GRAVES?


Everywhere one looks TV, newspapers, Magazines, online, and all social media.
Everywhere one hears, in their home, on the street, at work, on just about every corner.  Politics and who is worse than whom.  We have democrats against republican, Black against white, this list is endless.  One would have to ask themselves, WHAT THE HELL?
As much of the US, strive to destroy Trump, and yes, we all know Trump has a past, for God's sake, who doesn't?  But, one thing can definitely, be said for President Trump, and that is, all the things most of us thought the Government stood for is false.  All of us who were brought up to believe, the Government will protect us, have been deceived.  With Trump, we see most of our leaders as they really are, and this putting it politely.  We see that for years, we have been lied to, they have taken more then their share of our money, for the wrong reasons. Simply put, our Government, does not care about us, or the USA at all.  Seems there is more corruption, then good of what our county originally fought to make great and good. And, for the courage, to show the US, today as it really is,. President Trump earns for many, a BIG thumb, up, and a big THANK YOU. We may have gone on for God only knows how long, believing a lie
What has happened to the USA, would make our founding fathers roll in their graves.  Not, that they were perfect. But, seems that after Roosevelt, the USA slowly gave in to corruption. Oh yes, it is agreed that other president's after him, had some good qualities, but what happened? Look at the Kennedys.  Now everyone knows the Kennedy men, personally were, sexually inappropriate and had other inappropriate qualities, in their personal life.  But, it can be said by many that what John Kennedy could have done, as a President, believes, would have done a world of good for the USA.  Then, what, as we all know he was assassinated. And his Brother, after him.  Ummm, wonder what branch of government did not want the US to be treated fairly at that time.  We all, as they say, that have an ass, has an opinion. 
So what is it you, say?   looking back on our founding fathers', who does one, think, is rolling the hardest in their graves, at what the good ole US of A has become?





 Many, more to choose from, what is your choice? Pick one from the past, and share why you, think they would be rolling the hardest in their grave. Doesn't necessarily have to be a president, could be any of our founding fathers'

Boggled Over Blogging   



I have a question on this boggled up mind, How do I, blog and get others to respond?
I have tried at least more than four times, on blogger, facebook, and,  StumbleUpon.  I get viewed, but no likes on my website, and I get liked but no response on Facebook, But, no response of any kind. Not on Reddit, not on anywhere. 
 I have asked and gave challenges of sorts, but never, no ever, a retort.
So here I am again, boggled at what to do?  Can no one answer, or explain, any answer, will do.
So here comes the question to all in the cyber world, even if you don't like what I blog, can someone please respond?  You don't have to be kind at this point, just to give a response at least one time.
You see, I have a coach, who keeps me stuck here, on blogging forever before moving on.
I need to finish my Website, it's been over a year, but if no one responds, I stay frozen here.
It's obvious I'm not a fabulous blogger, I don't pretend to be, but can anyone respond, and help me, please?

AMULETS.



Let's have a discussion about Amulets.  First, what is an amulet?  According to one dictionary found in Google search, an amulet is, "An ornament or small piece of jewelry thought to give protection against evil, danger, or disease,"  Some think of them as good luck charms. Amulets were used in ancient history and exist to this day.  So, what are some of your thoughts?  Are there some out there willing to give their opinion of amulets?  For myself, I don't use them, but I do agree that some of them are rather pretty. The ones used on my site are made of different colored stones, that come with a black cord, to wear around one's neck.  These amulets, are said to give positive powers such as good luck, fertility, clarity, confidence, hope, and the list continues.  So in some respect. one could say, if a good luck amulet is worn, that person would be protected against bad luck.  It is easy to turn it around to say, the good luck amulet brings good luck.   Which is it, or is it both?   I find myself torn, on whether to have them on my site. Why? Well because I do not believe in them.  However, I do respect the right of others to believe in them, and who am I to say they do not work.  Maybe, those who believe, have such a strong belief, let's say with confidence, but do not believe they would have confidence without a beautiful stone to say that they are confident, therefore, is it wrong to use an object to have the courage to possess a good attribute, they do not feel they can develop on their own?  To build a following we make accessible, things that others want or need. Therefore, because I have many friends who believe in the Amulets mystical powers, I have them available.  But, I ask myself, am I promoting something I do not believe in, to profit?   Or, am I simply providing an item that many believe in and want?  I am in deep need to have feedback from both sides. Do I ignore my beliefs to benefit others, or abide by my beliefs and remove them from my site?   I ask you then, to respond to my dilemma here, I do not judge, people for their beliefs and no one who responds with their opinion will be judged. Eagerly, I wait to hear others thoughts and opinions, please share.

Metal Wall Art 
from
Croix Des Bouquets



Croix Des Bouquets, in an area of the capital of Port-Au-Prince,  is well known for Haitian metal art.
Metal Artisan in HaitiThe Haitians artisans, make the most beautiful metal wall art by hand, out of steel drums. Rather than wasting metal drums, that held oil and other liquids, the Haitian artist cut sheets of metal from these steel drums, heating them, into flat sheets, then drawing a design of nature, or heartwarming messages and using a peen hammer,  pound them into flat sheets and cut out the many beautiful shapes all by hand.  These artisans labor hard and are most proud of their creations. We, as art lovers, value these forms of art and use them for home, office, facility, and business decor. 
Many forms of art are made with the assistance of machines, but, not these artists. Many hours of sweat and physical labor, are poured into these beauties, which in a big way,  adds more meaning to their individual creations.  Though many copies are made, each one, is unique, as they do not simply run through an assembly line. Take a look at some of their art, and share your thoughts.

For the Love of Ballet.

For the Love of Ballet.

The graceful movements of a ballerina on pointe appears she is floating across the stage, with no effort at all.  
Those who love this art can visualize her instantly upon reading the last sentence. 

As in art, the work it takes to create such beauty is so much more than effortless. Every day in the art of mastering that effect,  involve hours of constant training to create the strength, involved to every muscle of her body, from the largest to the smallest striated one. She must master the ability of the most difficult meaning of self-discipline, in training her body to contort in ways to create the grace and beauty,  visualized in the dance.  Add the individual emotion and passion to match her movements, in telling of the story portrayed in the dance, and you have Art.  Just as a beautiful picture and a poem tell a story, so does the ballerina,  in using her body and emotions, that leave millions in awe and amazement, that can only be inspired by art.

Fused Glass Vases Thrudays 


A little History about Fused Glass Vases.  The real origin isn't precise.  Some think it was started by the Egyptians, while other debate that they originate from the Romans.  Either way, they have been in existence for 2000 years. There is no dought that they are an amazing work of art. They're each uniquely beautiful in their own right. Here is  one example:

What I like about it: the simplistic beauty.

What I don't like about it: Can't think of one thing.






Let me know what your thoughts are of this Fused Glass Vase. I will post one every Thursday to show a variety of these lovely form of art.
