The Scotia Wind


Welcome to my blog site.  I haven't decided yet if this is permanent, it depends on what I can do with this page. I've basically just thrown this together fast due to having to shut down my previous blog site.  I don't want to lose momentum.  I'll be writing about various things; abuse, politics, offgrid living, living simply and whatever gets my blood going that day.  At this time there is no comment section but I'm working on that.  There is a guest book but if I can get a comment section going I'll remove that.

Cry Baby 101

I thought the best way to open this new blog site was with the truth. I'm a big cry baby! Yup, I cry at commercials, someone holding a puppy, or even someone else crying. There are times I have to mute the tv and walk out of the room I become such a mess. Pay me a compliment and the dam breaks! A very good friend gave me a surprise party once when I announced I was quitting my job and going back to the US. One of the gifts I got was Kleenex wrapped in a big box so I would have to dig for it!

I just had a good cry over shutting down my previous blog site a couple days ago due to months of Weebly trying to force me into purchasing services I didn't need nor want. For months they have been plastering their huge banner at the bottom of my site and even blocked my ability to post new pieces due to their banner blocking the post button on my work page. I was able to get them to remove that so I could add more pieces but it didn't last long. It went right back on. Just recently they insisted, yes, insisted, I transfer my domain name to them or I couldn't use their "free" services. They didn't come right out and say that but they sure were all around it! They wouldn't budge so I shut it all down after letting them know that I would let people know about this.

If a company is going to advertise something for free then do it!!

So off to my corner I went and cried. Between building the blog site and all the pieces I wrote, it was months of work. Of course I kept all my writings but now I would have to find another blog site and start over. That could take weeks! Back to my corner for more crying.

After totally dehydrating myself I grabbed a book and went to bed, in the middle of the day. There was just no hope for this basket case. I read myself to sleep. I woke up hours later only to start with the crying yet again. Sorry piece of work I was becoming. I tried sitting down to write something and nothing. Just blank, blank, blank! I crocheted for an hour which stopped the water flow temporarily. So I got on my exercise bike and rode my butt off to CCR. Credence Clearwater Revival for you youngins. And no I'm not old, just full of attitude!

Half way thru "Down On The Corner", it hit me...I have a one page website sitting there doing nothing! Soooooooooooo, off the bike I hop and run to the computer! I never cleaned up a page so fast in my life! And yes you guessed it, tears rolling down giving Niagara Falls some competition!

Now I am writing this and feeling euphoric! Reading and writing have become my life, what I live and breathe for. The dawn is breaking with a breathtaking sunrise and the breeze is gentle. My planted flowers are growing and blooming. The weather is perfect, the coffee is brewing, the bread maker is doing its thing and I just got me back!

One tear of joy to start the day.



You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes,
you may kill me with your hatefullness, but still, like air, I'll Rise.

you have an obligation to be one.
