About Sadie . . .


 

“It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.”  ~Benjamin Franklin, quoted in the Montreal Gazette

This blog is the place I will write, when events inspire me. Though I am expressing my own opinion, I am not expressing it necessarily to persuade you to think my way, but to make you think about a subject period. There is a lot going on in the world around us today, and we must always be thinking about how events will affect us or those we love, or even those we have never met. Frequently, we need to question society and the way actions, attitudes, relationships and interdependencies will affect us now and in the future.

To give you an idea of who I am and how I think, my favorite book is The Children’s Story, written by James Clavell.  I happened to see it at the library and its physical stature was so different from his other books it caught my eye. Once I got home, as I walking into my bedroom, I opened the book and started reading the first page. I found it so riveting, that I sat right there on the floor of my bedroom and read the entire book. (It’s a small book!) If you have never read this book, you owe it to yourself to check it out. It will make you think about and examine many things – most aptly critical thinking skills and our freedom of speech, expression, and thought. Later, I read that Clavell said this book came together quite quickly – requiring no rewrite and changing only three words.

I hope you enjoy my postings and random thoughts, and I hope they inspire you to think about the world around you — locally, nationally, and globally; and to question the status quo. I look forward to your feedback:-)

    1. Thanks Paul! I am not nearly as prolific as OM, but am working on posting a little more regularly. Hope you enjoy my ramblings 🙂 Do you blog, or am I just too inexperienced to find it? Hope you keep following & have an awesome day ☮

    1. Thanks Taylor! I hope you keep visiting! I enjoyed your piece on banning yourself from FB, too!! Lately, I have a little more time on my hands than I am accustomed to & have found myself checking it way too often myself 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Smriti! I am honored that you enjoy my musings enough to nominate me and share my blog with your readers 🙂 I just saw this comment, so sorry I haven’t responded sooner. Again, I appreciate you thinking of me – I enjoy your blog, too! (Though I am seriously behind on my reading these days!!)
      You have a great day!! 🙂

    1. Hi Wormkeeper! I won’t lie, I’m pretty stretched for time these days, but in all honesty, yes, I would love to participate if it won’t take too much time. My blogs are even fewer than norm these days & I am terribly behind on my reading. Trying to get real serious about this NaNoWriMo 😉 Not sure if I’m gonna make my 50,000 words, but not giving up yet!! 😉

      1. Hi! Thanks for getting back to me. You are awesome!! It actually doesn’t have to take a long time, because the rules only ask for adding two sentences to the story. Galesmind has actually agreed to take the baton a couple of hours ago, but I know she will be looking someone to take it from her. I’ll let her know. If you participate and need help finding a handoff, let me know. I’ll be happy to help.

  1. Hey Sadie. I know you’re feverishly working on your NaNoWriMo manuscript, but I thought maybe you could use a break. And since you are an official Team Pepper member and haven’t yet been tapped for the Blog Hop, I decided to tap you. You can find it here:
    http://mindfuldigressions.com/2014/11/28/nano-poblano-blog-hop-story-what-goes-around-comes-around/

    If you don’t have the bandwidth to participate, let me know and I’ll pass it on to someone else.

    1. Oh Doobs – can’t pass up the challenge & have been missing reading all the cool Nano Poblano posts – that’s for next week when NaNoWriMo is over. If you can give me until tomorrow afternoon at the latest, I’ll get it up asap 🙂 May go look at it tonight, as I have been keeping some pretty late hours lately! And thanks for thinking of me ❤

My sincerest apologies, especially after your supportive nomination and kind words! I would be honored to accept this and will look at the rules within the next day or so. Hope all is well and spring is showing its face in your part of the world 🙂
