ON THE MENU?
MONTH IT WAS The
- for ideas that may be controversial and not very politically
correct - for example on stupid opinions that are very popular, and even
more, on the way many North Americans and Europeans play into Muslim
extremism - not through prejudice and denigration (wrong though
these are) - but by not standing up for ourselves enough. Instead many
caring Westerners let themselves be silenced by Muslim outrage,
for instance at a few Danish cartoons about the Muslim religion, instead
of telling Muslims to turn their outrage at something truly outrageous -
the murderous violence of some Muslims in the name of their religion
(suicide bombings, murders of Muslims from different branches of the Muslim
Muslims burned a embassy, marched and protested over a few cartoons - but not a word was said in those protests about the many incredibly prejudiced and hateful Muslim cartoons (against Westerners and particularly against Jews). And of course none of the protesters (while burning cars, etc.) voiced outrage against Muslim violence, including the many instances of violence against other Muslims.
So for ideas and more ideas, opinions, critical thinking, analysis, speculation, stimulation, check out The Idea Emporium. The first idea piece: The Rage of the "Righteous."
As for "favorite" stupid opinions: Stupid Opinion Number One - that you are wherever you are meant to be.
else is planned for the near future? Music, songs, word pieces.
Geela Gribbs was known as more
than a little weird.
Creativity Blog. It's easy to want to express
one's creativity, harder to do it. And then, it's even harder to get it
out into the world. The blog is about this project, about trying to get
my creative works out into the world.
Person I Call Me - which is Caro's song (Caro who
doesn't can't see the ghost dog).
soon there will be lots more of these word pieces on the web.
For yet something else, something with music music music
White Chocolate and Hot Fudge Sauce-
IT FOR NOW.
FOR EZINE AND UPDATES ON WHAT'S NEW
MUCH MORE IS IN THE WORKS.
of all, there is going to be lots of space for other people's creative works
- for their words,stories, images, music, ideas -
at My Creative Space, where everyone will
be able to upload parts of their own creative works, as well as links to
their own sites;
* and at My Creative Match, which will be for people who need someone to bring creative works to completion - people with music that needs words, with words that need music, etc.
WHAT'S NEW? EVERYTHING.
New to the web, anyway. This site has been a long time in the making. But as for being on the web, everything is brand new, just getting ready to be uploaded. Excitement in the air. So much preparation has happened - over time learning how to create for the web, and over the past few months, how to get something visible for the web.
I have the sense of being surrounded by carton after carton, each just waiting to be unpacked in a new home.
I keep wanting to write, it's like this or like that. Like moving into a place of one's own for the first time. Like graduating and trying to find one's way in the "real" world for the first time.
This is entering another world.
I have been slowly getting into it - or not so slowly lately. I've been working on another site, and have seen how, if I just listened to what the web wanted (through a site that taught me, brilliantly, how to give the web what it wanted), then I could be heard on the web. One day, still a total novice, I found the site at the very top, the first of the non-sponsored sites, in a number of different site. Number one of 3,167 entries. Number one of 2,789 entries. Number two of 4,817 entries.
Amazing.Baby step after baby step added up to a huge leap, unimagined.
And now this.
Each project has been long in the making. For now, you just have the name and an image for a number of them.
a lot has been unpacked.
SO MUCH MORE IS PLANNED -
and My Father's Worlds, My Father's Words.

Gertrude Stein said, almost a century ago, a rose is a rose is a rose.
easier to say that, than to say
just as a rose is a rose is a rose,
could even go on to say that
one could hold that
many humans might not even notice if,
humans would just register that it's
And it is.
if you are at this site,
A rose is something else by any other name.

A note for those of you who, like me, care that I sometimes write "Elsas word story image idea emporium" and sometimes "Elsa's word story image idea emporium." I prefer to use "Elsa's" - this is the grammatically correct spelling. But there are rules of the web. One rule: there are places where one can't use apostrophes. Another rule: one is supposed, at specific times, to use the spelling identical to the place where one can't use apostrophes.
sometimes it makes sense to follow the rules - on the web, it helps with visibility,
and so it helps bring people together. Also it makes sense to me because otherwise
it seems to me that I am much more likely not to reach others - not to reach
a major goal.
