After the Storm...

Instead of paying attention to the talking heads in the media both print and electric I woke up after the mid-term elections and stared at myself in my bathroom mirror affirming once again that I define my existence and reality...

I also realize the most important forces and influences in my orbit are those I allow into my circle of life. Political candidates are human scripts whose voices read words that are meant to solict votes nothing more but votes...

My life is shaped by how I define what is progressive and worthy. I am still going to respect my elders, mentor the youth, love my family, speak to my neighbors, feed the birds and love this wonderful thing called life...

The storm is a good thing reminds me of many things that are important

Yup I'm with on that point,I will not allow another person to define me.
Yes the mid-term was a disaster for my state,but as you know the folks who's lives will be directly affected didn't show up at the poles!

I don't see it that way..The folks who created the poor often are not elected officials nor are the options worthy of a vote..

Often even the poor don't want to be a part of corruption and a failed political system..
