A few weeks ago I was contacted by a class from Upstate NY. They had been discussing nature activities that kids and adults can enjoy and had come across my blog. One of the children sent me a link to a website that he thought I might be interested so I’m going to share it with you.https://appletonwildlifediary.wordpress.com/2020/11/09/connections
Another little “deviation from the normal” post.
Starring yet again Caralyn (thanks for the tip), with hat tips to Velda & Josepha. This is a particular threesome of intelligent thinkers (see the linked-to posts for more about some of their intelligent thoughts) I totally hope they will collaborate and exchange ideas — not only with each other, but also with all of us… the global commmunity… of things, or beings, or whatever (haha, well just don’t “nevermind” 😉 ).
Caralyn’s post addresses a new REALLY BIG SHOW on Netflix (actually more than one, but do go ahead and read all about it on her post) … called “The Social Dilemma”. I haven’t watched it — I’m not that kind of consumer… I will listen to you, but if you start treating me like your slave, well then I don’t care about what you think you have that’s worthy of me paying attention to (because in my humble opinion it simply isn’t … at least not in that case). Whatever (yes, do nevermind 😉 ).
Well, so the question this persuasion geek is pushing (see Tristan Harris’ website for more details) is: Should we trust these algorithm-gurus who have been fucking up so royally for decades … should they now be trusted to program algorithms, computer programs, silicon chips — whatever — for the “guidance” of our kids? Um, some of you might remember this (be sure to click the “watch” link if you don’t 😉 ). In other words: HELL, NO!!
What we need is HUMAN INTELLIGENCE, nature, natural processes, evolution, whatever — NOT “Humane AI”. Just say no to having some 1000 elite narcissists programming what you are thinking, doing, whatever!
Um, with that, back to our… regularly… scheduled… whatever (nevermind).

Recently a commenter stated how badly she missed hugs. My response? I’ve not stopped hugging those I love so why have you? I am not afraid to touch other people. I am love not fear. As long as I live upon this earth I will live from a state of love, not fear.https://herladypinkrose.wordpress.com/2020/06/20/social-beings

My motivation for starting a Spiritual blog is partly to share with others but mainly to try and connect with like minded people actually. I have always considered myself a very spiritual person and it is weird keeping that out of my creative blog. However I know that some people are very put off by other’s sharing their spiritual experiences and therefore I wanted to keep it seperate so as to not offend anyone.https://xyoopxspiritual.wordpress.com/2020/03/29/a-little-introduction
