Another day comes to a close and is winding down. The sun is low on the horizon soon about to leave not to return till the next morning at the opposing horizon. Like the day I am done. Time to rest and reflect until tomorrow. Just about every living thing on this planet above the level of microbes is linked and tied to the daily cycle of life. It is split into two parts... day and night. The shift between cycles now happening again. I think about how it effects me the way I am tied into this cycle of life. What comes natural being a creature that evolved in this great web of nature. Half of the cycle I am up, moving around, active, expending energy to find and fulfill my basic needs of the day. The other half is time for rest, recovery, dormant till the cycle starts over again.
Well it's that wonderful time of year again in the great Northeast we here warmly refer to as "The heating season". That time of year in which people start turning on their house heaters after being off/idle since the last heating season. For most people that have their energy provided by a supplier this will mean that the monthly energy bill just took a sharp rise in cost. Depending upon how cold the winter gets the monthly energy bill could easily quadruple+ in cost for many.
Turning on the house heater is turning on a significant new monthly expense. It's a choice between the lesser of two discomforts. The discomfort of your energy bill vs the discomfort of your house temperature. There is a hidden cost and discomfort attached to the energy bill that too many people seem to not factor into their "Budget".
Artistic expression is an amazing gift for humanity at large. The artist may have had just one idea/concept in mind as they created the expression. Yet march all of humanity through to view that expression and there are almost as many interpretations/connections made by it as there are viewers themselves. It instills a different experience/feeling in everyone.
Now I know when it comes to anti-government, Matrix Illusions, Cher is probably not the first person that comes to mind. And this song of her's was probably not meant to be interpreted this way.
What can I say? In all of humanity you get all kinds? They've always had a problem with me?
Be the squeaky wheel. If you see something wrong, don’t just ignore it. Say something about it, and keep saying something until it changes. Whether this is some process that infringes on your privacy, a job requirement that impedes your health, or another injustice, pursue it relentlessly. Ask questions publically, write letters, and use social media to bring pressure to encourage a change.
Please let me relate a personal experience of mine that adds NATURAL truth and validity to this assertion.
A government that preys upon the young, children, those most vulnerable and least able to cope, is beyond shameful.. it is evil.
Isn't that right Department of Education?
