Ok, what happened was that I essentially stayed up all night long, and that’s unusual for me because I’m a 9-hour-a-night sleeper, if not 9, then 10. However, I would not recommend staying up all night either; it’s hard on the body, possibly even traumatic. And it takes a few days to get over.

So then, stop talking and say why you damned fool. I was on this 50s Memories website because I was born in the 1950s and had occasional nostalgic twinges. Plus, I was invited to it by my sister-in-law. So I checked it out to be polite and joined up. My peers, after all.

I was checking out the 50s Memories website a couple of days ago when I saw this fantastic picture. It was of 4 1950s women, standing in a row, dressed in fabulous 1950 dresses, and they were all pointing handguns straight at the camera. Also, they were all giving deadeye looks. It was so cute that I couldn’t resist commenting on it.

All I said was, and this is paraphrased because the 50s people deleted my post, so I no longer have any access to it; that’s what kept me awake all night. I wasn’t even angry, more like stimulated, and I wrote all night long.

What I said was that only women and not men should be allowed to carry guns so that criminal behavior would be way down. It was a smart-ass remark, done because I thought it was amusing, also because I genuinely believe it and have said it before. Anyway, there was a firestorm within a couple of hours – I pissed off a lot of people, it seems.

To be entirely fair, though, opinion was divided and a lot of people, men as well as women, enjoyed and appreciated the comment. Unfortunately, since I am now censured by a website of a couple of million people, I don’t have any statistics on the matter. Before I got cut off, though, I had over 300 comments and likes within 2 or 3 hours.

It was every writer’s dream. I might have even gone viral. But there were supposedly many complaints that the remark was political, and the 50s Memories people deleted my comment in a few short hours. Bullshit, I say to that. Bullshit!

I don’t know what the administrator was thinking, but I believe that websites like traffic, the more, the better. Not the 50s Memories people – they booted my ass toot sweet. And that is why I stayed up all night.

Smashwords – Murphy Blue – a book by Linda Hahn

Come July, Smashwords is having a book sale for all its authors and I am included. My book, Murphy Blue, will be available at half off – this is $1.50 for a limited time. This is a great deal for all you book lovers. So please, buy my book. Don’t hesitate, do it now!

Murphy is a hapless ex-con, who tries to mind his own business, but can’t avoid getting caught up in various criminal enterprises. He is oblivious to this activity, but it sucks him in. And it destroys him.

How To Read

Ever since I learned to read, I have wanted to write. I picked up the ABCs quickly and moved on to books. I had an aunt who read poetry to me, and I loved it. My first dream regarding writing was to write poetry all day, every day. I was fortunate that writing came so easily.

It did not come easily in my immediate family. Two out of three of my brothers are dyslexic. One never learned to read. However, one did learn to read as an adult through sheer stubbornness and perseverance. I’ve always felt guilty because reading is so easy for me. And I could never help them. To this day, I cannot fathom why the powers that be gave me a mother who read constantly and one brother who was unable to learn to read.

I suffered greatly because of this fact. Even today, at age 66, I still ask what the hell went wrong in my own family? Of course, poverty causes many problems, and it creates a great deal of stress. But how is learning to read part of it?

I was poor, just like the rest of my family. So why did I take to reading like a duck takes to water? At the same time, two of my brothers could not seem to learn the alphabet. Was child abuse the culprit? I was there too. But it didn’t affect me the same way it did my brothers. I just wanted to be out and away from it all. So I was very motivated to leave home as quickly as possible.

In retrospect, I wonder what happened to my family to this very day. I can account for all of them. I am in close contact with all five of my brothers and sisters, although I never had my own children. Out of my fifteen nieces and nephews, only two have a mild form of dyslexia. They can both read, although with a bit of difficulty. They both belong to one of my sisters.

The brother, who cannot read, had six daughters, ranging from very intelligent to absolutely normal. So I thank God dyslexia does not seem to run in our family. But I will always wonder why I have two brothers who see things very differently from me.

I always leave this site smiling and needing a dictionary!

We Are The Answer…

World Metamorphosis

Amazing times we are in. Exhausting for sure, but so exhilarating as well. We have been chosen to witness this changing of paradigms. How lucky we are. We must stop looking at what is wrong in the world and focus more on the good unfolding beneath the darkness. I can’t imagine how many souls lined up to try and get a ticket to earth for this journey we are on. Not everyone was able to be a part of this. So count your blessings and don’t wallow in your woes. We are headed into very choppy waters soon and we best be prepared to hold on tight and do our part in moving this transformation forward. Every one of us should play a part in this momentous change. It cannot succeed without each of us adding our ideas, support, our energy and willingness to open our hearts and minds to…

School Horror

Our souls need help today.  School shootings are a horrible reflection of our society.

I had a brilliant rage published on Helium.com; but they disputed my fiery rhetoric and deleted the article.  Oh, yes, they did.  I shall try it one more time.  Let’s get a new system that is fair and actually works.

I just watched my favorite movie of all time, the original Blues Brothers from 1980, with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.  It cheered me the hell up.  Everybody needs a mission from God on occasion, and the music, and the chase scene of this fantastic movie.
