Standing Water

Watching and waiting
For someone to understand me.
I hope it won't be very long.

If you missed Saturday's post, it's worth a look, as I rarely go off on a political tangent.

Shayna has an awesome post up of her road trip through Nowhereland, and if you haven't read her rockin' interview at Political Notio, you need to get moving! Pronto.

Oh, and Coop is my hero because she went to D.C. for the Rally To Stop Genocide in Darfur. She also has a blog dedicated to this hell on Earth. Barack Obama was there too; I really like this guy. I met him a few times, and he was impressive.

The lovely pia goes back to the beginning, bringing back memories of a lady I worked for that was a hardcore groupie with the Moody Blues. The stories! I know a lot of stuff about them, Hendrix, Buffalo Springfield...and I remember her talking a lot about Justin Hayward. I know who Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, is. That was originally a comic book!

OMG. I am playing mommy the next few days for my friend Bree's three children while she is in Nashville for a business trip. This could be interesting...but I am excited. She comes back Wednesday night! Yeah!

I hate to admit it, but I just had to tune into Meet The Press today. I have pretty much liked Dick Durbin, but now I really like him. Listen here. Wanna watch the whole thing? Then head here. Thought it was interesting and a tad bit entertaining.

My three cents: if everyone would quit playing the blame game, they could actually figure out a solution. To something, for fuck's sake. Politics is such a pissing contest sometimes. Makes me want to run for office.

Seriously, I am politically unbiased. And maybe that is why I am extra frustrated.

Uh, oh. I have mentioned politics two days in a row. Watch out. ;)

My middle name is Trouble...

Just wanted to back up to Sat. post. "Hope" is what keeps us going, you are 25 yrs old, I am 42 yrs old. I wake every day with hope. Loved your post on oil and ethanol. We have met the enemy and it is us and our 8mpg SUV's and driving everywhere by ourselves. Interesting show last week, Brazil gets 40% of it's gasoline needs from sugarcane ethanol. Of course, your post on oil blows my post all to shreds, I guess I'll have to be creative, you know how I hate being creative. lol.
Green and gold from fertile soil.
Our very own domestic oil.
Yikes!
Hope, you have a great time playing mommy.
Hope, you understand that none of us out here in orbit mind your politics, in fact we want more.
Hope, you can tell us about the police decal deal. Is their slogan now,
"My other patrol car is a horse."
Hope, you find what you are looking for.
Hope, this doesn't get boring.
Thanks Brian
P.S., I've gotten 10 poems total for Memorial Day.

I'll stay away from politics on your blog for now, but let me splurge about hope, which was also a theme for the last two posts. I don't think one can discuss hope without discussing faith.

"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."

Hope and faith are pretzeled together in this seemingly oh-so-foreign life where our deepest desires are never quite quenched. The fact that we have such haunting passions allures us to the mysterious "hope" that surely there is more. For every single desire that we have on this earth there is always an object for that desire, whether something as simple as hunger there is food, or something as complex as love there is... well- love. Ultimately our desires lead us to an infinite life where we can be understood, and understand, where we can have meaning and significance, where we can be caught up in a never ending adventure, and experience the depths of love in our relationships that we have merely heard whispers of. Faith swims where reason cannot wade.

This is my hope.

Good luck with the three little " fiends" as Doug seems to call children these days. lol

Nice post on oil.
I of course am politically biased althoug I tend to get tired of all the yelling and just wish someone would have some meaningful dialogue and actually pass some legislation that would do something about our problems. Too much of absolutely nothing goes on.

I'm just now trying to briefly check out the blogs before class I miss scro;;og through them when I am unable to do so.

That's a sentence I really get. I'm politically extremely biased but not partisan and the frustration from this decade is that, more and more, nonpartisanship is making me seem liberal even though my political philosophy is conservative.

Please run for office, Cowgirl.

Brian, you are far from boring and always creative. (10 poems!).

Hope to email you later.

Jake, feel free to say anything you want here, regardless of topic. To me, hope and faith are connected. But you said it so beautifully...

Arizona, me = love? Parole gentili.
It has been pretty good so far playing mommy. But we'll see how it plays out. ;)

Coop, I am going to keep Ungagugie away from the children! There seems to be some talk about chloroform...lol.

Most politicians, regardless of party, tend to make me want to retch.

Seems we both like Bama...

Doug, er Ungagugie! I would most certainly run for office, but I don't think the world is ready for me. But I probably could easily win a mayoral election here...lol.

Good to know that you understand where I am coming from. And I stopped at Casey's yesterday just for you!

Hi cowgirl-have fun with Bree's angels, you might need a drink after :-)

Interesting comment about being politically unbiased and the bit that Doug added. I struggle with that too. It sounds so incredibly trite but I often wonder 'why can't we just get along?' (accompanied by a frustrated stamping of the size 9 and 1/2 foot!)
Why do we have to pick sides, make labels, draw lines? Can't we be bigger than that?

*sigh* we humans have a long way to go.

Kyahgirl, I couldn't agree with you more. About the drink, or politics! lol. The angels aren't bad, but it is stressing. I have my cell phone with me while they are in school because I am the one they call if something happens...eek!

For such an advanced society, we simply aren't that advanced. We need new blood in politics or something. What we have right now is not working. It's like frat row at a large university.

I think I could do a better job at 25 than most of them are doing. And that scares me.

Thanks for the mention! Cooper has been one of my heroes for a year now

Teen sat this weekend. It's a little more detailed than baby sitting, but maybe more fun

Politics two days in a row? What are we doing to you?

hey, you want 2 more? I pay real well, CASH$$ lol, good luck and have fun, enjoy being a temp-mommy. Maybe the bug will bite you and you'll want a houseful of your own soon OR the experience might send you screaming in the opposite direction......anyhow, have a blast!

I think you should talk politics permanently, of course I'm boring like that.

Up until about 5 weeks ago I was Obama's director of political affairs. I know him well.

Thanks for the link again, and I'm glad to hear that you drive a Chevy. Cummins engine?

Hmmm...when I wa sin Germnay I babysitted my three nieces! Good luck with your babysitting...you gonna need it! :)
But I bet you are just as interesting in person as you are invisible in the bloggosphere, so you shoudl be alright!;)

I have no idea what is going on pia. But seems everyone is liking it...lol. So far so good.

Barngoddess, two more wouldn't be bad. I am used to being surround by kids because of the riding lessons and all of the theraputic riding classes; I like kids.

I take care of my nieces (now 6 and 9) and my nephew(7) all of the time, since they were infants. And it is fun to spoil them and then send them home, lol.

I think I would have to settle down first before I go having little cowgirls and cowboys!!!

Chris, I emailed you because I felt the need. And the Chevy is a Duramax with an Allison tranny. ;)

Minka, hello! I hope I am more interesting in person than here on the blogosphere, lol. ;)

Blogger Chris said...

Nothing wrong with an Allison. Doesn't GM also use Cummins now?

I got your email and thanks for the note. Any time you feel the need write away.
