Share Words And Their Meanings
2019-8-22 10:48
Long ago when I lived in the USA, I noticed that most words used there politically and in media were just labels. These labels often meant nothing close to the original meaning of the words they were derived from, sometimes they really meant the opposite - they were just meant to artificially create a feeling of being goodness/political correctness through association.. A 'liberal' does not necessarily have a mostly liberal outlook towards others, a 'democrat' does not follow de ...

Share The Christmas Spirit
2019-8-15 10:17
Met with a grumpy old man, a friend of mine with a heart of gold today. He always affectionately addresses me as "son". He is in hospital on a long recovery. I took my son along as he likes this curmudgeon. It was our "Christmas presence" for him. He was very happy to see us and in his usual manner gave my son some advice fondly with his put-on "grinch face". He always spoke about not giving gifts on occasions, not wasting money and that too borrowed money... He wants the younger generation to ...

Share All The Holiness, Beauty and Evil
2019-3-27 13:58
No place, no monument, no symbol or word is holy, beautiful, ugly or evil in itself. True Holiness and beauty, exists only within us - in the souls and thoughts of living creatures. Ugliness and evil exists mostly within humans. Copyright © KIyer 2019 All rights reserved

Share The Most Basic Motivation For Wealth Creation
2019-2-4 09:57
Not all who are wealthy are at fault somehow. Many earn it honestly or inherit it legally, not at anyone else's expense. Not all who are poor and struggling are so due to someone else's fault. They truly have not earned wealth or sympathy in society. There are corrupt and honest rich, just like honest and corrupt poor. They each need to be treated differently, according to their nature, not their level of wealth. A single individual cannot use more than a certain amou ...

Share The Extremes ?
2019-2-3 09:03
SCENE 1 Sarah greeted her friends at the door, looking very happy and excited to see them, yet there was an unmistakable new calm and relaxed look to her. After they were all done squealing, jumping and hugging her in turns they wandered in. They all exclaimed at the elegance and beauty of the house, all the way from the front porch to the dining room via all the other rooms - on the standard house tour. The place was truly luxurious in an understated way - very upscale and hinted of obscenel ...

Share O, How The Times Have Changed!
2018-10-12 10:20
For a long time we had politicians from the two major blocs trying to sound or appear to different basic values from each other to appeal to voters (even though they were basically the same). Now we have politicians from both major blocs trying to sound as if they all hold the same basic values to try and pull down those from their own party who are changing the status quo! Something has rocked their long established, smooth running gravy train. For a long tim ...

Share No Need To Die And Go To Heaven
2018-8-8 19:28
I have often heard that someone ‘died and went to Heaven’. It came as a surprise revelation to me when I realized that, I have stayed alive and come to Heaven. I look around and find it very familiar. It looks just like the area around where I live. I was walking outside, this evening after dark. It had rained earlier in the day and the skies had cleared up. I could feel a cool and yet exhilarating pleasant dampness as I looked up and saw the stars bright ...

Share The Sick Old Man
2018-6-15 11:50
Wisps of hair, like streaky clouds Gathered 'round his head He lay under a tattered quilt Reclining on his bed The musty air smelled, Oh! so foul As I manfully held the bowl He struggled so noisily with his breath I feared he just might cough to his death A spoon of soup I tried to feed him Some dribbled down his chin He looked at me with his rheumy eyes ...

    Welcome you being back on the forum! Your topic is interesting! We bloggers should post more writings with unique fresh ideas to reader-friends.
    In China people waste too much money on friends who have to organize a banque at restaurant for kinds of reasons. (Such as kid‘s birth,  entering university or wedding, death of parent, and so on.)  I think colleagues should care and help each other with real heart that pure relationship can not be measured with banknotes!
