Let's Dream to Electric Cars Aren't As Green As You Think
Lovers shut window to the world to learn the truth of their dreams
Electric cars - good or bad - learn the truth
Let’s Dream (Shakespearean sonnet)
Those flares that dare to bare another’s glare
To minds which search to find their own affair
And be the reason for a lover’s smile
Let’s drape those windows of the world with shade
From lies disguised to buy their prize of youth
To gentle lips whose whispers press the truth
And follow fragrant scents which they have made
Let’s close our eyes awhile to set us free
From fashioned passion rationed at some store
To hearts which hold a heaven to explore
Our glare of youth restored by you and me
Those flares from lies which fashioned other’s day
They will not stay the day when dreamers play
Word Wizardry waltzes with lovers' dreams in this Shakespearean sonnet. What is Word Wizardry? It is a ply or command of words that rhyme or sound alike within a rhyme. Usually within a single line. A play of sounds can also be Word Wizardry, In this sonnet it happens in the second lines of the quatrains.
There we were. I had lost my wavy hair. I can't remember when Arlene stopped aging. She was as young as "I can't remember when". I do remember that Arlene had great legs. It must have been all that dancing, In our forties and feeling every day of twenty-five. (Our social successes made us young again,) As we danced out in our garden,we recalled thinking and sharing how other warned us, we can't do this and we wan't do that. I also remember our neighbors joining us in dancing in their own yards. A metaphor of what was going on at the parties Arlene and I were throwing for the Lodge. After our neighbors realized that it was okay to dance in one's own backyard, Arlene and I would spot them there, from time to time. The same was true with our parties. Once others saw the success we were enjoying. they would adopt our ideas. Better yet, and more complimentary, others would build on our ideas. There we were. In each other's arms. enjoying the life we had fashioned together.
And here we are. The truth of it is, we have all touched upon it. "Those people" trying to tell us what we can and cannot do. We all have come in contact with those who "march to the beat of their own drum." Who knows, behind our own windows per chance we do too. But the mob keeps singing, "You can't." "This is fun," "This is in fashion." We're all doing this." Many give in and so the mob is born. Perhaps we all give in from time to time. After all, who can pass up on a "good deal"? And sports... Who doesn't have a favorite team. And in today's modern world, with so many voices working on us, so many distractions, there is this something calling to us. A lover. A friend. A memory. We are all unique individuals. Our challenge is to be true to ourselves. To be all that we can be. To bear the fruit that only we can can bring. And in the richness of our season we may proudly say, "Enjoy."
Talk about enjoying, let's join Joe: Joe Satriani "Flying in a Blue Dream"
Electric cars - Good for the environment, Right
In 1891, William Morrison of Des Moines, Iowa builds the first successful electric automobile in the United States. At the beginning of the 21st century, interest in electric and other alternative fuel vehicles has increased due to growing concern over the problems associated with hydrocarbon-fueled vehicles, including damage to the environment caused by their emissions, and the sustainability of the current hydrocarbon-based transportation infrastructure as well as improvements in electric vehicle technology. So electric cars are good for the environment? Think again. Adam Conover, of Adam Ruins Everything, gives us a few extra things to think about.
I wonder why "they" didn't tell us this? "Electric Cars Aren't As Green As You Think"

However much I might try to expound
or explain Love, when I come to Love itself,
I am ashamed of my explanations...
Love alone can explain the mysteries of love
