Dear @nightstar so glad you are well and safe!
I was following girls' posts here to learn about you.
thank you for sharing your experiences at work and everyday life there.
there is not something easy to say about politics. just that we the everyday common people suffer the consequences
and keep walking, hoping for the best!
But I can say I am proud to have met you through this forum. your reaction at your work, your stress and the way you handled it, the help you asked from the psyhologist shows a brave and courageous person and I admire that! you worth every praise hatsoff tbluerose

Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow
it to get inside you."
~ Goi Nasu

"Choose a path that will challenge your compassion & fortitude."

"Find out what makes you kinder,
what opens you up and brings out the most loving, generous,
and unafraid version of you―
and go after those things as if nothing else matters.
Because, actually, nothing does."
~ George Saunders

Bluebird by Charles Bukowski


there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
you.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he’s
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
works?
you want to blow my book sales in
Europe?

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
sad.

then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do
you?
I liked so much he was so smart tthumbs up thanks for sharing

Good Afternoon, Book Loving Friends... Image
Hello December!!


Image


“I’ve come to sing you a song called December.”
~ Ryan Murphy, Down with the Ship




Image


“It is growing cold.
Winter is putting footsteps in the meadow..."




Image


“December's wintery breath is already clouding the pond,
frosting the pane, obscuring summer's memory...”
~ John Geddes, A Familiar Rain



Image


“May and October, the best-smelling months?
I'll make a case for December: evergreen, frost, wood smoke, cinnamon.”
~ Lisa Kleypas, Love in the Afternoon

Hope you have a lovely day, canims... Image theart theart theart

“December is a bewitching month.
The grey of cold teases
to explode into something worthwhile,
into a dream of cold,
a starlight shower you can taste,
a cold that does not chill.

I've lost my memory
of my first snow--
did I gasp at a field of white?
Or scream at the freeze
until my cheeks reddened?

The crunch underfoot is satisfying
and the thrill of virgin snow
near leaves.”
~ Joseph Coelho
