Why Be You? Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

May 16, 2016

She, alone, stood
and, debating her own best good,
faced down the gaping abyss
of conscious solo loneliness.

She knew another decision would
be, by others, easily understood
if she, reconsidering, stepped back;
let herself be lead down a different track.

She could easily hike hand in hand
through life’s journey with a man
who had never truly got
the greater knowledge and light she sought.

But she turned her vision to a loftier view;
Spread forth her arms, lept out, and flew.

Living on the lake, /
there’s lots I could do, but just/
one thing I should do.

Doing The Best Things: Revolutionary Blogging Prose

April 5, 2014

(Originally posted on Facebook)
I go to a lot of dances, karaoke, parties, sporting activities, social events. I think they’re important to “connect”, especially when a person doesn’t have a local “family”.
But can I share something without coming across as self rigtheous or anything? I had a thought this morning about how the dances and other social activities I attend are really just for me. They’re not really helping anyone else (although I do make others smile when I ‘rock it’.) I heard a talk about service, and then I wondered this:
https://cyranowriter.wordpress.com/2014/04/05/can-we-do-more-than-dance-revolutionary-contexting-haiku/ — can I do more than dance? Can I serve?
And I was listening to someone who was talking about family history, which prompted this question (and answer to the question I’d asked this morning) —
https://cyranowriter.wordpress.com/2014/04/05/dancing-with-ancestors-revolutionary-contexting-haiku/ — I can spend time doing genealogy and helping others.
Tonight, instead of going to a dance, I’m going to work on family history with a friend. And the larger question is this: Have you folks ever thought about putting together service projects, family history “working sessions”, have a “barn raising” (i.e., maybe we all go work for an hour on each other’s gardens), or anything similar … instead of just dancing or going out to dinner or going to sporting events or doing other social things?
