Making a Public Fool of Yourself


In his blog, https://cristianmihai.net/, Cristian wrote today,

“But, actually, if you want to be successful, and it doesn’t matter if all you want is to become a great dancer or actor or writer, or whether you want to pick up pretty girls in bars, you just have to be willing to make a fool out of yourself.”

Well, I am about to see if it’s true! I asked Cristian to site an example for me. When did he make a public fool of himself? And what constitutes that?

Anyone who volunteers to do face painting and can’t create a better spider than this, definitely is making a fool of him/herself. 😜🤪

What have you done to make a fool of yourself?

Daisy Chain

Daisy Chain
Created by George Ellison
The Daisy Chain may contain any number of lines.
The last word of each line becomes the first word of the next line.
Finally, the last word of the last line is the same as the first word of the first line, completing the chain.
Like the Wreath, the Daisy Chain requires no meter, rhyme, or mandated line or stanza length.

Abigail added, “I threw in a little twist of my own: a poem within a poem. The first word of each line can be read together to give the theme of the whole.” That REALLY makes it challenging! Try it!!  Here’s mine:

CHAIN OF DAISIES

Daisies are a little like angels.

Angels with a certain white flair are…

Are an invitation to serenity.

Serenity with a heart of golden yellow.

Yellow gold at the core.

Core of gold is a gift from our Father in Heaven.

Heaven is where serenity lives always.

Always seek that peace in your imagination.

Imagination can be real now –

Now that you’ve see the chain of daisies!

Trust and Rest


Today is a day

To trust and rest in the Lord

Sit down and praise God

No need to worry

He has all your troubles held

He can fix antlers

So He can fix you!

Take your cares to Lord Jesus:

Great Intercessor.

No Change Without Challenge


Is it really true?

There’s no change without challenge?

Sacrifice for change.

Is sacrifice necessary?

Is a small thought it?

That’s all it takes for real change?

Okay, let’s try it!

Raincheck


flying people fly levitate

Bouncing in puddles

Singing on a rainy day

Storms cannot stop us

.

Waiting for sunshine

Can take a very long time

Don’t take a rain check

.

Weather every storm

Get up and put your shoes on

Puddles await you

I have been writing daily from an A-Z list of “What Makes Me Happy.” I already shared

A= Antelope, B = Birthdays, and C=Christmas. Today should have been a day for “D”, but

Alphabet Haiku Challenge ~ P

by Abigail Gronway

we were asked to use “P” as the letter and write an Alphabet Haiku. As you know, Haiku is a poetry form of three lines with the syllabic count of 5, 7, 5. An alphabet Haiku follows that pattern, but every word in the poem must begin with the same letter. That’s a challenge!

So, I am skipping ahead to the letter P to participate in the Alphabet Haiku Challenge.

Of course, as you might guess, PUPPIES make me happy!

Fires


Fires

California is on fire.
Montana is burning now.
Firefighters are trying
To save this land somehow.

Friends are on alert –
Their belongings packed to go –
To move if necessary.
Move where? Some just don’t know.

We’re here to lend a hand,
But our resources are so slim.
We need the help of rain.
We must simply rely on Him.

No man can can tame the flames
That burn without regard
For whose life is damaged –
Who has lost their home and yard.

No man can stop the spreading
Without help from God above.
But here, at home in comfort,
I can offer hope and love.

I can pray for the firefighters.
I can offer food and shelter,
But I can’t stop the flames,
Nor tame the heat – the swelter!

Lord of Life and All Creation,
Please send us relief in rain.
Take away death and destruction,
And make us beautiful again.

 

Amen?
