AND MY FAVOURITE FOR THIS WEEK : http://nylondaze.com/2011/10/17/weekly-photo-challenge-possibility/

I was glad to stumble upon Nylon Daze this week. With the OCCUPY WALL STREET PROTESTS it seems to me to be a time full of possibilities and I was hoping for Images of this time of Many Possibilities. I am extremely timid when it comes to demonstrating but extremely vocal in  my outrage  at a world gone harsh and unrelenting. I truly did not think to ever see a turn in the thinking of people which would lead to the protests we are seeing now. As I have said in an earlier post, I thought the sheeple would keep walking obediently over the edge of the cliffs. I never dreamed that they would begin to say ENOUGH. Or “that’s not right”.  I started a wee blog http://methinksshedothprotest.blogspot.com/ just to complain and protest and because I knew people in the flesh would tell me how fortunate we are and look with disdain on the troublemakers. I used the Blog to just note the things which seemed to me to be unfair and outrageous but I never dreamed that the outrage was so widespread despite my Uncle having predicted it way back. 

We DID have a Rally in a tiny village called Bilambil, back in 2008, about our telephones. And the telephones WERE fixed PRONTO.

That said, and without the skill or clarity to express my views on this, I am SO glad to see this new Beginning. I am not naïve enough to think it will be simple but neither am I  foolish enough to think that the Possibilities are not WONDERFUL.
