MORE ON ‘THE TESTAMENTS’

Margaret Atwood and her writings have fascinated me since I started watching ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ on Hulu. The adaptation for the series was beyond compare.

I have already read ‘The Testaments’ and have ordered plenty other of her books.

I’m on a mission!

When Margaret Atwood is discussed these days, numbers necessarily lead the way in, to underscore and give full accounting to the Atwood phenomenon:

She’s written more than 50 books. These have been translated into more than 25 languages; The Handmaid’s Tale has sold over eight million copies and counting; the Hulu television series based on her 1985 novel has won fourteen Emmy’s and is in its third season.

Her latest novel, The Testaments, the long-hoped-for sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is already in its third printing in only weeks after its release. The first printing? 500,000 copies.

GIFT TO PUTIN AND ASSAD

I haven’t been able to get this out of my mind since I first saw the news early this morning.

It’s beyond my capacity to understand and absorb the amount of damage the unchecked FIDIOT in the Oval Office is wrecking upon the nation and the world.

Something, someone has to stop this madness!!

YOUTHFUL INNOCENT EYES

A young Kurdish boy on the way to losing his innocence in view of the situation in his nation. Has this already happened? Will the effects ever go back? Will he live? Will he become a hardened soul? Will he die?

HARDENED ADULT EYES

“… the experience of battle forever divides those who talk of nothing else but its prospect from those who talk of everything else but its memory.”

James D. Hornfischer~

SUDDEN WITHDRAWAL

 The sudden withdrawal of US forces – designed to leave their erstwhile allies the Syrian Kurds as exposed to a Turkish advance as possible — comes just as a regrouping by ISIS was taking shape.

ISIS was founded in a vacuum – the turmoil of Syria’s civil war – and in a vacuum it will return.

~DISTRACTION~

What comes next is unclear, but undoubtedly it will be bloodier and more chaotic. It provides succor for Moscow, Damascus, Tehran, and even ISIS. And it mocks the allegiances made with those who suffered most in defeating ISIS – the Syrian Kurds– and even explicitly mocks the US’s closest allies in that fight – the UK, France, and Germany.

Amid Drumpf’s other woes, it is a calamity serving as a convenient distraction. Yet it sows such discord, it risks perhaps overshadowing even them.

WHO AND WHERE ARE THEY?

Who are the Kurds? … The Kurds are one of the indigenous peoples of the Mesopotamian plains and the highlands in what are now south-eastern Turkey, north-eastern Syria, northern Iraq, north-western Iran and south-western Armenia.

They are at the forefront of the fight against IS … and Drumpf is abandoning them!!

“A Shakespearean Act of Betrayal”

Drumpf Agrees to Let Turkey Invade Kurdish-Controlled Syrian Area

U.S. troops have begun withdrawing from northeast Syria as Turkey prepares to invade Kurdish-controlled areas of the country. For years, the Kurds have been close allies to the United States in the fight against ISIS. On Sunday, however, the White House released a statement that surprised many in the region, announcing that Turkey would be “moving forward with its long-planned operation in Northern Syria,” following a phone call between Drumpf and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“To do six to 10 episodes of high-quality writing, and then be able to go direct my own things, and do a movie, if it comes along, sure. I just want to act and do good work.”

~Jason Momoa~

“You know what’s it’s changed is my appreciation for the art form of making cinema. I want to be a part of the whole collection and pull all of the pieces together. That’s what I love about directing.”

Monday Morning Wake Up Call


What a beautiful image … and thoughts!! … ‘Why not call
that moment: Beat-of-the-thousand-wings-of-God-inside-my-chest.’
Mark Nepo, from The Way Under The Way: The Place of True Meeting

Live & Learn

Why not call the
moment of certainty, the fleeting moment
when everything that ever lived is right
behind my pounding heart, why not call
that moment: Beat-of-the-thousand-wings-
of-God-inside-my-chest.

~ Mark Nepo, from The Way Under The Way: The Place of True Meeting
