Twenty four years ago, the world stopped for me.

I can barely begin to imagine how it stopped for her ‘boys’.

======================================

Princess Diana’s tragic death in a Paris car crash on August 31, 1997 shocked the world. It would become one of the biggest news events of the 20th century.

Diana, Princess of Wales, was a member of the British royal family. She was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales – the heir apparent to the British throne – and mother of Prince William and Prince Harry. 

~~Wikipedia~~

Ida Know


“Hurricane Ida hit Port Fourchon, Louisiana on Sunday with 150-mph winds. She’s now a tropical storm passing through Mississippi and headed toward the mid-Atlantic states. Over one million homes and businesses are without power in Louisiana alone. Flash floods and tornadoes may be created on her tour through the south. So far, she’s responsible for four deaths.” — I don’t want to sound heartless but this takes me back to Hurricane Maía in Puerto Rico — that was really bad and all TFG did was through paper towels to the people there. Remember? That was painful to watch!!

Hurricane Ida hit Port Fourchon, Louisiana on Sunday with 150-mph winds. She’s now a tropical storm passing through Mississippi and headed toward the mid-Atlantic states. Over one million homes and businesses are without power in Louisiana alone. Flash floods and tornadoes may be created on her tour through the south. So far, she’s responsible for four deaths.

As bad as Ida is, she’s not Katrina. That category 5 hurricane hit Louisiana with 174-mph winds, destroyed New Orleans, and killed at least 1,833 people. Ida was a category 4, which is still extremely bad, but this storm hit smaller communities. Yesterday, people in New Orleans were sweeping up and going for bicycle rides (according to The New York Times). People in smaller communities, like Grand Isle, LaPlace, and Houma, are recovering from extensive damage. The storm was strong enough to reverse the flow of the Mississippi River.

There will be people…

HEALTHCARE WORKERS IN 2020 AND 2021

REAL TEARS

I’m a retired physician. I’ve been retired for almost 9 years. I didn’t work in a hospital setting except during my early professional years. I have an idea how a hospital and its ICU work. I haven’t experienced what these healthcare workers are experiencing now in view of the COVID pandemic.

I can just extrapolate and just ‘imagine‘ what they are going through. I don’t know if I would have the wherewithall to kindly ‘treat’ anti-maskers, anti-vaxxers and those who, at the last moment ask for hellp when their actions were all against the medical reality.

I don’t think these ‘Americans‘ deserve the sacrifice these professionals are still providing to each and everyone who is addmitted at their facilities.

I pray for THEM so that they can continue with their ‘mission’ in spite of … !

That’s how this machine works


I also have a ‘aquiet machine’ … I can see myself doing the same!! … “That’s how this machine works.” — Ada Limón, excerpt from “The Quiet Machine”, in Bright Dead Things: Poems.

Live & Learn

There’s how I don’t answer the phone, and how I sometimes like to lie down on the floor in the kitchen and pretend I’m not home when people knock. There’s daytime silent when I stare, and a nighttime silent when I do things. There’s shower silent and bath silent and […] car silent and then there’s the silence that comes back, a million times bigger than me, sneaks into my bones and wails and wails and wails until I can’t be quiet anymore. That’s how this machine works.

Tuesday Thoughts …. “🙏🏽 ‘Always Be Thankful, No Matter What’ 🙏🏽 …. “!!


~~August 31, 2021~~

NO MATTER WHAT, BE THANKFUL

It may a difficult time, it’s not easy … some may say, ‘it’s easier said than done’.

I agree … yet, when you really think about it, it could also be worse.
