Dear Jo:

the posts for the next few days are pre scheduled. I am a bit high right now as I had to have that cracked molar removed and they had to chisel at my jaw to get it out.. so there will be pain if I don’t stay high… unfortunately it is vicodin not herb.. but I guess I am luck as the herb makes me…. hummm.. … well with my hernia it would be difficult to enjoy….. the double hernia operation is scheduled for August 5…. and I will be happy to get that out of the way as well. 

Hope all is well Kiddo… and if you have not guessed by now.. the heading of this was thick sarcasm..

And Jo… this will break your heart:

 

Kids Threw Rocks At This Pit Bull That Just Wanted To Be Loved. Watch This.

 

Hope you are well kiddo… things here.. well not so peachy keen, even if I do live in the Peach State of Georgia.

What would we do without our great technology??  Would we become better “people”?  Have we lost the art of interpersonal communications. I talk a lot about emotional literacy. It is a real reason people just don’t get me I guess. It is only gained from experiencing emotions from interactions with others. REAL Interactions… real Discourse. Something that people do not know how to do. The ability to disagree in an agreeable way. The ability to agree to disagree…. but that sharing of different opinions is like traveling the world. WE LEARN. How you think is different from others and how others think is different from you… I am the strangest bird of all because I never run away from a healthy exchange of ideas no matter how esoteric they may seem… I encourage you to do the same.. to grow beyond your confines… to fly like I know you can and to have adventure that others cannot even dream of because of their myopia… are you willing?

You need to watch this:

I have 422 friends, yet I am lonely. I speak

0:05
to all of them everyday, yet
0:07
none of them really know me.
0:11
The problem I have sits in the spaces between, looking into their eyes, or at a name on a
0:16
screen.
0:17
I took a step back and opened my eyes, I looked around and realised
0:20
that this media we call social is anything but
0:23
when we open our computers and it’s our doors
0:26
we shut.
0:26
All this technology we have it’s just an illusion,
0:31
of community, companionship, a sense of inclusion
0:33
yet when you step away from this device of delusion,
0:36
you awaken to see a world of confusion.
0:40
A world where we’re slaves to the technology
0:42
we mastered,
0:43
where our information gets sold by some rich greedy bastard.
0:46
A world of self-interest, self-image, self-promotion,
0:47
where we all share our best bits but
0:51
leave out the emotion.
0:53
We’re at our most happy with an experience
0:56
we share
0:57
but is it the same if no one is there.
1:00
Be there for your friends and they’ll be there too
1:02
but no one will be if a group message will do.
1:06
We edit and exaggerate, we crave adulation.
1:09
We pretend not to notice the social isolation.
1:11
We put our words into order until our lives are glistening,
1:15
we don’t even know if anyone is listening!
1:17
Being alone isn’t the problem, let me just
1:19
emphasise,
1:20
if you read a book, paint a picture, or do some exercise,
1:22
you are being productive, and present,
1:24
not reserved and recluse,
1:25
you’re being awake and attentive, and putting your time to good use.
1:28
So when you’re in public, and you start to
1:30
feel alone,
1:30
put your hands behind your head, step away from the phone.
1:33
You don’t need to stare at your menu, or at
1:35
your contact list,
1:36
just talk to one another, learn to coexist.
1:38
I can’t stand to hear the silence, of a busy commuter train,
1:41
where no one wants to talk for the fear of
1:43
looking insane.
1:44
We’re becoming unsocial, it no longer satisfies
1:47
to engage with one another and look into someone’s eyes.
1:50
We’re surrounded by children, who since they were born,
1:53
have watched us living like robots, and think it’s the norm.
1:55
It’s not very likely you’ll make world’s
1:57
greatest dad,
1:57
if you can’t entertain a child without using an iPad.
2:01
When I was a child, I’d never be home. I’d be
2:03
out with my friends,
2:04
on our bikes we would roam. I’d wear holes in my trainers and graze
2:07
up my knees. We’d build our own clubhouse,
2:08
high up in the trees.
2:10
Now the parks are so quiet, it gives me a chill
2:12
to see no children outside and the swings
2:14
hanging still.
2:15
There’s no skipping no hopscotch, no church and no steeple.
2:18
We’re a generation of idiots, smart phones
2:21
and dumb people.
2:26
So look up from your phone, shut down that display.
2:29
Take in your surroundings, make the most of today.
2:32
Just one real connection is all it can take
2:35
to show you the difference that being there can make.
2:40
Be there in the moment that she gives you the look,
2:43
that you remember forever, as when love overtook.
2:45
The time she first held your hand, or first kissed your lips,
2:48
the time you first disagree, but still love
2:50
her to bits.
2:51
The time you don’t have to tell to hundreds
2:53
of what you’ve just done
2:54
because you want to share this moment with just this one.
2:56
The time you sell your computer so you can
2:59
buy a ring
3:00
for the girl of your dreams who is now the real thing.
3:02
The time you want to start a family and the
3:05
moment when
3:06
you first hold your little girl and get to fall in love again.
3:08
The times she keeps you up at night and all
3:12
you want is rest
3:13
and the time you wipe away the tears as
3:16
your baby flees the nest.
3:18
The time your baby girl returns
3:20
with a boy for you to hold
3:22
and the time he calls you granddad
3:24
makes you feel real old.
3:27
The time you take in all you’ve made
3:28
just by giving life attention
3:30
and how you’re glad you didn’t waste it
3:32
by looking down at some invention.
3:34
The time you hold your wife’s hand
3:37
sit down beside her bed
3:38
you tell her that you love her
3:40
and lay a kiss upon her head.
3:42
She then whispers to you quietly
3:44
as her heart gives a final beat
3:46
that she’s lucky she got stopped
3:49
by that lost boy in the street.
3:54
But none of these times ever happened
3:57
you never had any of this
3:59
when you’re too busy looking down
4:01
you don’t see the chances you miss.
4:08
So look up from your phone, shut up those displays
4:11
we have a finite existence a set number of
4:13
days.
4:14
Don’t waste your life getting caught in the net
4:16
as when the end comes nothing’s worse than
4:18
regret.
4:19
I am guilty too of being part of this machine,
4:21
in this digital world, where we’re heard but not seen,
4:23
where we type as we talk and we read as we chat,
4:26
where we spend hours together without making
4:29
eye-contact.
4:30
So don’t give into a life when you follow the hype.
4:32
Give people your love don’t give them your
4:35
“like”.
4:36
Disconnect from the need to be heard and defined
4:38
go out into the world, leave distractions behind.
4:43
Look up from your phone, shutdown that display,
4:48
stop watching this video, live life the real way.
4:50
Can you feel what he said?? I hope so.
Hope you are well kiddo…. be well. 

Jo:

There is another ending to that post… it is:

“Keep them (Thought(s)) to yourself!”

while actually putting that penny in their hand or more insulting throw it on the ground. 

so  with this comment  I have made ~ or  ~ ” I put in”   is worth about”  “(My) 2 cents.” which is another twist it is even better in person when you actually put money in their hand to match the amount you actually saying

Was just thinking of you Joey and wanted to say Hi! Can you come out and play?  TAG .. Your it..... opps sorry about the scratches...

BYE FOR NOW KIDDO!

 

Jo:
