November 28, 2014 Writers Digest 2014 November PAD Challenge/ Thanksgiving 2014 & Isn't News

Thanksgiving 2014

no this year has not been as i would have wished

but then i don’t remember the universe asking me

it is a year i will not forget

yet i am grateful that you are no longer sick

i am grateful for family and friends

i am grateful for          the air i breathe

the water i drink

the food i eat

the bed where i rest

the home where i live

the studio where i work

the view of taos mountain

the clear blue new mexico sky

land of enchantment

the list could be endless

but most important is you

i am blessed beyond what i could ask

Isn’t News

i wonder....                              there isn’t much on the news anymore

a lot of what they call news                         doesn’t inform

a lot about shopping                        

i guess you can expect no more in a capitalistic society

after all what is more important than shopping

and who gets the last barbie doll

but what about the black family in missouri whose son was shot

by a police office who was afraid

or a 12 year old boy in ohio

the news isn’t all black and white

some of it is silly

some of it is disrespectful

most of it doesn’t matter                              a lot of it isn’t news

I love the list of beautiful things you are grateful for, Annell, especially "the most important is you." And isnt it true that our focus in North America seems to be shopping??????
