When they put up the fences…

When they put up fences…

a cooking pot and twisted tales

Los Cabos, Peace, Padilla, I, Mexico, Sloop, Jump, Sea

When they put up the fences
may our feet be as fleet as gazelle
that we outrun their barbed enclaves
may our wings spread wide
that we soar high to tips of the highest trees
breaching the boundaries of caged birds
whose wings are clipped
but their voices continue to sing.

When they put up the fences
will they stay rested behind their glass towers
or will they venture to other people’s poor spaces
and plant their feet in arrogant superiority
whilst they tear the owners asunder?
Forgetting that he who brings an insect infested log into his abode
invites the lizard to feast
and may not have rest.

When they put up their fences
tell me
Would that really make any sense?
What manner of divisions shall we see?
Would that really be a worthwhile defense?

Dear Writer … it’s not all about you, ya know! – Reminder #5

This blogger makes a good point even if you aren’t marketing a book.

Books: Publishing, Reading, Writing

In marketing, it’s said that a message must be repeated 7 times before people take action. Writers, here’s your #5 reminder …

I was going to write a blog post about social media and how I’ve been paring down my use of it, because I’m finding it to be not all that social or the best media for me at the moment. After discussing with a fellow author how disappointing Twitter is (and she cleverly described T. as “like a 4-lane highway at rush hour with cars bumper-to-bumper. It makes me nervous”), I realized what bothers me isn’t not being able to navigate and use Twitter properly, but more the barrage of Tweeps who constantly tweet: Look at me! Aren’t I clever! Buy my book!

Now I’m not saying that I don’t do some self-promotion on there, but I do try to balance that with tweets of value to others…

STONEWALL INN …. First National Monument …. “LGBT Struggle …. “!!

The Stonewall in is now a national monument.

You can’t tell people in the GLBTQ community that people can’t change the world and make it better place for our children. WE know that with time, patience, perseverance and sacrifice that we CAN change our world. So, no more excuses. No more hiding behind and blaming ‘the government’ as if ‘the government’ isn’t ours. If the government is corrupt it’s because the people are corrupt. If the government is inept it’s because the people have made it so. In a democracy the government is a reflection of the will of the people; even when they do nothing.

It Is What It Is

STONEWALL INN 

Stonewall Inn becomes national monument nearly 50 years after riots

In 1960’s America, it was illegal to be homosexual.

Police raids on gay bars were common.

But on the night of June 28, 1969, gay residents of Greenwich Village decided they’d had enough, and took a stand at the Stonewall Inn.

They fought back against police.

The violence led to days of protests, ultimately igniting the gay rights movement.

It took 47 years, but the historic importance of what happened in the tiny Manhattan neighborhood has finally gotten federal recognition.
