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.

  1. Thank you so much for adding your voice! And please, never doubt your skill or your clarity in expressing your views! We all have them but too often we sit on them – I know I have, while the idiotic manage to get themselves elected and suddenly they are making policy on our behalf.

    The protestors occupying Wall St are such a wonderful mix of humanity as indeed we all are, we judge each and every one of them, and ourselves throughout the world, at our peril. With good intentions and honourable motives anything will always be possible.

    Well done on the telephone issue and lovely sharing time with you on your bench!
