Book Quote Challenge: Day One


Many thanks to Ajoobacats for inviting me to participate in the Book Quote Challenge.

I have to present three quotes per day by an author  of my choice for three consecutive days.  My quotes for today come for The Hot Pink Farmhouse by David Handler.

 

“Think of yourself as growing one day younger each and every day for the rest of your life.”

The Hot Pink Farmhouse by David Handler

“Children in pre-school art classes can do three-point perspective without a hitch. They ace it. It’s only we adults who have trouble with it. You must break free of your adult mind. See as a child sees. Accept as a child accepts.”

The Hot Pink Farmhouse by David Handler

“Life is freakin’ weird. Get used to it.”

Viewpoint: Precedent Historical Repetition


History is repeating itself. The age of Humanism is slowly marching off the world stage, but what comes next?  Precedent historical repetition says that sooner or later another nation will rise. After all, the human race has lived through the rise and fall of many great nations. History is repeating itself.

The situation among the cultures is precarious. The Iron Curtain is slowly rising out of its sleep and finding its home among nations that want to protect their economy and the pure ethnicity of their race. Cultural diversity is leaving the stage. History is repeating itself.

The rudimentary ordinances of nature are being disobeyed. What was once one plus one equals two is now one plus one equals whatever makes you feel good. History is repeating itself.

Over one million people are on the run. The number of people who have died so far on the ground, in airplanes, in the seas is heartbreaking. Men talked, yet children cry, children die, women cry, women die. History is repeating itself.

In every corner of the world, there is tumult. Philosophical antagonism demands closed borders.  An antagonism based on supremacy, it has plummeted us even nearer to a world war. It enacts to dominate, to make all men and women think alike. This antagonism has no mercy, no understanding, and no love. History is repeating itself.

“What are you doing, Child?” The Prophet asked.

“Watching the New Year come in over the earth.”

“Oh, that’s nice.”

“No, it’s not nice Prophet. It’s sad.”

“Why, Child. What do you see?”

“In every corner, I see children starving, women crying, human life wasted. Prophet, don’t people ever read about the past?”

“No, Child. That’s why History repeats itself.”

 

Happy New Year Everyone,

Alles Gute Zum Neuen Jahr Alle,

Bonne Nouvelle Pour Tout Le Monde,

Feliz Nuevo A Todo El Mundo,

Felice Nuovo Per Tutti,

L’Shana Tova,

Viewpoint: A Commentary on Christmas


The woman was heavy laden with child, and her husband looked at her with concern. Of course, he had to go. The census was mandatory. As he regarded his wife, he knew the journey would not be easy.

What is a few hundred miles or kilometers today? Catch a train to Hamburg from Frankfurt, Germany, and you arrive in four and a half hours, a plane ride from Augusta to Atlanta, Georgia is fifty-five minutes. However, this man did not have these comforts. His Mercedes-Benz was a donkey.

He observed his wife as he pondered over the trip ahead. Leaving her behind was not a consideration; in her was the hope of the nations, the salvation of the human race, and a shiver went through him as he thought of what could happen ahead. Thieves and robbers on the route and a desert where the temperature dropped at night were between the two cities, and ninety miles on a donkey was not a one-day ride.  He figured he might be able to travel 10 miles a day, but even that would be hard considering that she was heavily pregnant with child.

Today the significance of this event has been revised; the hardship erased. The importance of this Child’s birth has fallen into abnormality.

Soon, it is Christmas.

For me personally, it is the time when I reflect backward to that birth in Bethlehem with Thanksgiving in my heart.

His birth changed History;

His birth changed my life and gave me a vision with purpose;

The Son of God came to earth so that I could have the right to be accepted in the Beloved.

Merry Christmas to you,

Buon Natale a te,

Joyeux Noël à toi,

Frohe Weihnachten zu Ihnen,

Feliz Navidad a usted.

Monday Funnies…


Good Morning Everyone,

My, have I missed the MONDAY FUNNIES while participating in NaNo. It took every bit of strength that I had to stay focus on what I was doing, so I didn’t laugh much at all.
So, here are the MONDAY FUNNIES for this week. Sit back and enjoy and pass this along. Chris doesn’t mind reblogs.

Have a good week, People.
Shalom,
Pat Garcia

Monday Funnies – Is there a Doctor in the house? Cartoons…


Good Morning Everyone,

This morning I have laughed until tears were streaming out of my eyes. In fact, there is still a big smile on my face. Why? You ask.

Well, I read the MONDAY FUNNIES that Chris posts on his Story Reading Ape Blog.

This week the funnies are all about doctors and some of them tickled my funny bones because there’s some truth in them, and without realizing it, I found  myself laughing at myself.

So grab a coffee and take a minute to sit back and laugh.

Have a great week and for those of you who don’t know it, I’m participating in the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I don’t mind you sending up positive affirmations that I’ll make it through and reach my goal of sixty thousand words.

Shalom,
Pat Garcia
