30 Days Hath September...Coming To A Blog Near You. Renewal!

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
February has twenty-eight alone,
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting leap year, that's the time
When February's days are twenty-nine.

A few years ago, I wrote about my friend Stephanie and a guy by the name of Morgan Spurlock who had written about this poem. In essence, he took September's 30 days to improve his life. She did the same on his prompting and I did mine. That was in 2011. Eons ago or so it seems.

I am not sure if I ever finished the whole month of September. Maybe I did and maybe, I didn't. One thing I know is that being inspired (after having come across that blog again) I thought I might as well give it a go again. 

So, I have decided:

The first thing is I am going to do is blog everyday. I generally used to blog about 2-3 days a week and have been way out of the habit. So, why not. I warn you, it may or may not be dribble but I am going to do it! So, for obvious reasons, this is day one. :)

I am returning to art-ing. I cannot full time do to work but I will carve out time. Hey, you may get to see it in a blog. *grins*

I am returning to writing. I have a book to write ya all. Carving out more time.

I will meditate or something. I have been too stressed in recent months. This will be daily but I may or may not write about it.

If you would like to join me in my 30 Days Hath September by all means do so. I ask is you come back and let me know what you are doing so I can go and encourage you. 

Peace out,

9/11 Film Opening Sept. 8th... #Remember 911 #Giveaway

Here we are again, in the remembrance, and at the cusp of one of the most horrific things that have happened in my life time, September 11th. Those of us old enough to remember the even have our own stories of where we were and what happened from our own perspective.

I know I was at my office and talking on the phone with my Dad right after the first plane...then I saw the second plane. My world was turned upside down that day, like so many others. I will never forget!
What is your story?
This year, another movie is coming out from yet another perspective. I want to share it with you. Visit the official 911 website

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman(The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).
In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.
Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.
With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.

Hey! Miss Me?

Well, hello there! Remember me?
Yeah, yeah, I know, I have not been around since June...JUNE! Wow!

I could give you a whole bunch of reasons but it wouldn't amount to a hill a beans to you and a waste of breath for me. So, I won't bother. Hee...

Anyway, I am pseudo back...well, sort of, it depends on internet and all that but. I found out I can work in the work out facilities here at my apartment complex for free. Yay!
I suppose that is not what they mean by working out but I am working my, there!

Anyway, coming this September, I will be renewing my blogging outlet. I am returning to the way my blog used to be, an outlet for my thoughts, yearnings, desires. Originally, when I first blogged, this was what it was for me. This was back in the days of Yahoo 360 and then, Mutiply. Eventually, many of us came to Blogger...some on to Wordpress. In any case, that is when it died!

What I mean is, we were family and Facebook and other social media took over. This is not a bad thing per se but for me, it also morphed into a simple giveaway site. That was not necessarily bad either and still is not, but, it took away my need to express myself.

I will have a review or a giveaway from time to time but I hope you will stick around...or come back and see what I have to say. Better yet, let's form those friendships almost long forgotten now. It is good for my soul and I am sure for yours too.

Drop me a line in comments. I want to hear, how are you?

Peace out,

PS>Check out tomorrow or next day what will be happening in September on this blog!
