The Queen’s Speech


My sentiments exactly … ” I think we can all take heart from the Queen’s words, and I think she won’t mind sharing them with us, for she is as aware as any that the U.S. is without responsible leadership. Thank you, Queen Elizabeth.”

Filosofa's Word

Today, the Queen of the United Kingdom addressed the people of the U.K.  I am posting it here, because her words are the words of a leader, and here in the U.S. we have no such leader.  I think we can all take heart from the Queen’s words, and I think she won’t mind sharing them with us, for she is as aware as any that the U.S. is without responsible leadership.  Thank you, Queen Elizabeth.

MAGA Masks


This is an important read for many reasons … please, check it out! … ‘IT’ said: He said, “I don’t know, somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think that wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens – I don’t know, somehow I don’t see it for myself.” … he really did!!

The Trump administration is now encouraging everyone to wear face masks. They don’t protect you as much as they protect other people, but it’s another step in getting rid of this virus so we can return to our normal lives.

Even though the scientists and doctors in his administration endorse masks, Donald Trump says he will not wear one. He said, “I don’t know, somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful Resolute Desk, the great Resolute Desk, I think that wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens — I don’t know, somehow I don’t see it for myself.”

First off, dictators? In the Oval Office? Behind the “beautiful” Resolute Desk? Donald Trump intends to host dictators in the Oval Office and his concern is that a mask would be inappropriate? Also, who’s coming over for a visit during this pandemic? I don’t…

Sunday Sweet Sermon …. “🙏🏽 There are Two ‘SSS’ Today 🙏🏽 …. “!!

MESSAGES FOR DIFFICULT DAYS

We are collectively going through difficult days. We still can’t see beyond the current reality. It’s easy to feel impotent, to let despair walk in the door, to feel defeated. Sure, these may sound a cliches but if a cliche will help get me through, bring them on!

Sunday Morning


The kind of day that I long for, the days that were with us not that long ago … and it seems like an eternity … “It was an exquisite day. It was one of those days so clear, so still, so silent you almost feel the earth itself has stopped in astonishment at its own beauty.”

“Mansfield’s last note, from an unfinished story, ends with an observation that only the dying Mansfield would make: “It was an exquisite day. It was one of those days so clear, so still, so silent you almost feel the earth itself has stopped in astonishment at its own beauty.”

Cuba’s Coronavirus Response Is Putting Other Countries to Shame

Repeating Islands

cuban-doctors-italy[Many thanks to Peter Jordens for bringing this item to our attention.] Ben Burgis (Jacobin Magazine) says, “Cuba is caricatured by the Right as a totalitarian hellhole. But its response to the coronavirus pandemic — from sending doctors to other countries to pioneering anti-viral treatments to converting factories into mask-making machines — is putting other countries, even rich countries, to shame.” Here are more excerpts:

Last week, the MS Braemar, a transatlantic cruise ship carrying 682 passengers from the United Kingdom, found itself momentarily stranded. Five of the cruise’s passengers had tested positive for the coronavirus. Several dozen more passengers and crew members were in isolation after exhibiting flu-like symptoms. The ship had been rebuffed from several ports of entry throughout the Caribbean. According to sources in the British government who spoke to CNN, the UK then reached out to both the United States and Cuba “to find…
