My daughter posted a sign on Facebook that said: “Accusations from a narcissist are actually confessions.” There were comments of people agreeing with this statement one hundred percent. All narcissists use the same vocabulary and say the same words. The fact that the sign said that their accusations were confessions is amazing. If you have ever dealt with a narcissist you would understand. In the media, accusations are an everyday occurance. They throw them out there and then wait to see what happens. Sometimes they are denied, proven to be just false or a new form of accusatory lies appear and the dust settles on the original victim. This is a staple in politics. As the politicians compete with one another, they start with all types of accusations. Often when they are proven false they simply move on to new ones. If a person doesn’t have proof, they should not say things that are untrue just to hurt another person. That is really all it amounts to. The majority of the time it is nothing more than lies. It even happens in elementary all the way up to high school. Once the words are spoken, the gossip spreads and before long a student is hurt. It doesn’t achieve anything. For the person dealing with a narcissist, it gives them an opportunity to confront them and solve your issues. In the Good Gus series Bad Bart was accusatory towards Bob. However, Sheriff Gus solved the problem and proved that Bad Bart was wrong and that there was a different approach that could solve the problem. You can easily access the books online at Kindle with a few books on Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” is full of characters who think nothing of making accusations. The book would be great for holiday reading. It’s online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
For two days people have been reacting to a blue frog that a neighbor placed on their lawn. First of all, it’s a statute. Given the problems we are all facing why is an entire community and the internet concerned about this? It’s beyond nit picking. People are so focused on the minute details, that they miss the big picture. They should be grateful that they live in a nice neighborhood and have a home. It’s all the pettiness in life that people focus on and then it blows out of proportion. Would it have mattered if they put an angel, a dog, a cat, a sign or a rainbow? Sure the blue frog isn’t that attractive, but the owners of that property live there, have paid or are paying for it, and the rest of their lawn is quite attractive. If the walking population in that neighborhood doesn’t like the look of the blue frog, I have the perfect solution, don’t look at it. Life is too short to fight about a lawn statue. People obviously are not concerned about the virus, any of their neighbors who have lost their jobs, anyone in their community that is struggling to meet their bills and have enough money for food. In the scheme of things, a blue frog just isn’t that significant. In the Good Gus series the only frogs were in the river in Pecos. The series is online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. They are great reading to keep your children on the path to learning. “Misplaced Trust” is also online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
Tonight you can see the Strawberry Moon. It will be visible to the naked eye. I had never heard of it before today, but it is real. From the photographs on the internet it looks beautiful. I plan to look for it tonight. I decided to find out about the Strawberry Moon as I had never heard of it before. Apparently, it has been a part of the ‘Old Farmer’s Almanac’ for years. They say it may not look like a strawberry or be even that color. However, it is the last full moon of spring and the beginning of summer. It’s actually named by the Algonquin Indians. They called it that as it was the beginning of strawberry season. They also believed that the fruit would be at its ripest. Now, of course, due to farming in various locations, strawberries are available for many seasons. It really begins in February in California and then spreads across the United States. Some of the finest strawberries I have eaten are grown in Ireland. It’s only a few weeks in August but they are delicious. According to Julianna McCarthy, author of “The Stars within You,” the Strawberry Moon enters into a Zodiac sign, Sagitarius. That is the sign that seeks wisdom and knowledge. It’s interesting, but I think that the best part about this is gazing at the moon on a warm evening. The Strawberry Moon probably existed during the Good Gus era. The series is online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” is also available at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino. As we continue to remain vigilant in quarantine and isolation, my books may be a welcome choice for new reading.
