Oh Wind to Fidget Spinners In The Workplace 
A lover uses a wind to focus his heart oh paradise 
Office workers use gadgets to help them focus 


Oh Wind (lyrical poem) 

Oh wind who passed through my heart
And took it far away
To realms where lovers’ dreams start
And kisses softly play
-
I close my eyes and think of you
A dream I had that did come true
Now everyday brings something new
A purpose I can hold on to
-
What destiny has brought to me
From far across a lovers’ sea
Where there was once this fantasy
A wind that’s come to set me free
-
Oh wind who passed through my heart
And taught it how to sway
To all that love can impart
And words oft cannot say
-
Now all my world it whispers you
And you are everything I see
My dream of how all ought to be
And each new dawn has you in view
-
What memories you gave to me
Of sparkling stars and silver dew
And lovers’ eyes to see them through
A wind to fan this world of we
-
Oh wind who passed through my heart
And here forever stay
Tell loneliness to depart
For love lives here today


A wind gentle sings a lover through the fantasy of this lyrical poem. This lyrical poem, or song verse, follows the following form: C/V/V/C/V/V/C (C-chorus, V-verse). The meter is kept tight as to easily fit into a song. Note that the second set of verses mixes the rhymes of the first set of verses. 

There was a time of the cheap movie. These were movies that Hollywood would spew out and no one could remember the actors or the tittles. Movies, back then, were generally $3.00 admission to get in. No one really went to see these movies. No one but us teenagers. These movies were great for making out. Arlene and I would frequent these movies. Our favorite theater was just above the Sutro Baths ruins, here in San Francisco. It was called Lookout Point. We sat in the comfort of our car. Snuggling blanket was optional. The movies were The Sunset, The Fog Rolling In or The Stars. The soundtrack was tape (a way of storing music before CDs) created by DJ Arlene. Whether it was Lookout Point or one of the other theaters, candy was a must. It made kisses more playful and much sweeter. Those were the times when time stood still. Then movies got better and more and more people actually wanted to view a San Francisco sunset. Lookout Point became a busy parking lot. But in my heart, there is a time.

All around us are amazing things. Whether it is a bad movie or a dusty place to park your car. Even though my kitchens had dish washers, I preferred to do dishes by hand. Now I have pleasant memories of the family doing the dishes. Okay, making out and singing with one's kids while doing some housework may not be exactly alike. Or is it? The main point is: We all have it in our power, our imaginations to make things better. Another example" My dentist was always curious why I was always happy to see him. It was because his office was by a great Mexican restaurant and soon I would be eating real well. So it can be with all things. Arlene passed on. But we had an extraordinary life together. The theory is: There is good and bad in everything. It is up to us which way we choose. (I am not that good. I can only see the bad and good in most things.) All around us are amazing things. It all starts here, The most amazing thing of all. Here is where the better world has its start. And as we create it Enjoy.


What else does the wind hold for us: Era "Wind Love" 

What trend will follow the fidget spinners 


Catherine Hettinger, a chemical engineer by training, was initially credited by some news stories to have been the inventor of the fidget spinner, including by media outlets such as The Guardian, The New York Times and the New York Post. After the fidget spinner, what next? The folks at XVP Comedy have some ideas.

  11. Lookout Point became a busy parking lot
    But in my heart, there is a time

    You brought back the teenage years, Martin. We did not have a drive-in here but it came in other modes just as well. And to think that we could have ended up with someone else made the 'what ifs' more interesting!
