Prompt for the Day: “City”

The apparently country born people at the Daily Post group of Word Press wants to be forewarned by our personal takes on the word “City“.

Music First!

Song was written by artist Glenn Frey of the Eagles.  Was used as the theme song for the T.V. show “Miami Vice”

Personal Thoughts Next

Grew up in the middle of nowhere southern Illinois.  Cities were a foreign entity to me as a child.  Knew everything about everyone in the tiny area in which I lived.  Knew that one of our neighbors (few fields away) smoked marijuana.  Played with his kids periodically, since we went to school and rode the bus together.  Getting far away was a constant desire of mine.

Wanted to get away and earn a decent education far away as possible.  Unfortunately, the scholarship I won was for a college (thankfully in another state) that was only a few hours by car trip away from the dreaded place in which I grew up!  Was a bigger city than I was used to residing in, but not as big as I was dreaming of.

After completing college, moved with my husband back to the state in which I grew up, but in the Chicago-metro area this time!  Had finally made it to a big city!  Only lasted there for 18 months due to the high taxes and cost of gas there.  Relocated to the Denver Colorado area.  Another big city to reside in.  We actually only lived in a suburb called Aurora, but it was a beautiful place to live with great neighbors!  Stayed there for a little over 7 years.

Moved many more times with varying degrees of success.  Now we have permanently resettled to a state capital city of Minnesota.  Have no plans of relocating ever again, since this is the perfect city for me to live out the rest of my life in!

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

Prompt for the Day – “Write about evil”

Today’s prompt comes from “365 Days of Writing Prompts Copyright © 2013 by The Daily Post”.    They also added a little instruction to the prompt “Write about evil: how you understand it (or don’t), what
you think it means, or a way it’s manifested, either in the
world at large or in your life.”

Did they have some foresight

Of the events that happened yesterday in Paris, France?  Yesterday reminded me way too much of the events of 9/11/2001 here in the United States of America.  Have had both Alan Jackson’s song “Where were you when the world stopped turning” and the Eagles song “Hole in the world tonight” running through my head! Both songs were released in response to the tragic events that occurred that bloody day.

Donate if you would like to contribute to my fight to keep my mental coherence from the ravages of multiple sclerosis through my Go Fund Me campagn:

To me evil is doing damage to others (people, animals, land, countries, or just damage in general.  Face it, by my definition of evil, our president is evil!  The only thing I know to do about evil is to stand against the very existence in the life of you or others.  If we all stand together, maybe our light will show through the darkness!

Shine your light

To lead others out of the dark places in their lives.  There was a song that was sang in Sunday school, “This little light of mine“.  Maybe the world needs to see / hear it!  I personally sleep with a flashlight in bed with me at night, in case an emergency happens.  Having a reliable source of light for safety’s sake is a good thing.

Prompt for the Day: “Can’t Drive 55”

The evil people from the Daily Post group of Word Press came up with the daily prompt of “Can’t Drive 55“.  I accuse them of being evil, because I no longer am able to drive at all!  Hate being constantly reminded of this terrible tragedy!  Started driving when I was the wise old age of 12 on our family’s farm property.  Hit the public roads at the age of 14!

They suggested we do the following instruction to craft our latest work “Take the third line of the last song you heard, make it your post title, and write for a maximum of 15 minutes. GO!”.  The song “Hotel California” by the Eagles gives me “Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light“.  Made the mistake of spending an entire month alone in California.  Was the longest month in my life.  Never want to return to that hell again!

Missed the first full month with the two kittens we had just adopted into our family.  My kitten wouldn’t even come near me for days!  Those two animals would end up moving to several different states with us.  Wish I could get that month back with them!

Unfortunately, my husband’s cat passed away first.  He had survived four different states of this country with us.  Alas, he never made it to the fifth and final state of our journeys.  My cat mourned the loss of his brother and traveling companion severely.  We made him travel to a new and final state alone without his brother for his amusement.  He lived a weary two more years.  He was sick continuously, so we had to have him put to sleep one final time.  Was not able to be with him as he passed, because the vet’s office was not handicap accessible.  My husband had to help him meet up with his brother, after the cat missed him for so long.
