Ideas from this Date Over the Years

. at . Leave a comment

A cool feature (I think) from Facebook is that you can see what you’ve posted in years past on the same date. On today’s date (November 4th) I posted (among other others) about my health, politics, and Christmas. One reason I post these things is so that I’ll remember them for future use.

Only thing is, I hardly ever go back and do anything with the posted ideas. Or even if I wanted to, I have a hard time refinding them. So I am going to share some of these ideas that I don’t want to lose track of a 2nd time.

Christmas – Because it’s never too early for Christmas ideas, Plus Christmas is only 7 weekends away.

Politics – A friend posted this and I had to steal. This is wise advice.

Wise politcal advice

Another “P” word – Poetry – I am not a natural poetry reader. I have read 5 poems (all from my school years) that I still remember.

  1. The Raven – I am not sure why this Edgar Allan Poe poem has stayed with me all these years. But I usually read it once a year around Halloween. It seems a fitting, eerie poem.
  2. The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere – The exciting pulse and rendering of a historical event kept my attention and imagination captive. This link takes you to the poem in music form.
  3. The Children’s Hour – which I had to memorize and recite in front of the class. This is also a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; the Paul Revere poem was, too. I wonder if I heard them the same year from the same teacher?
  4. If – I kept a cheesy scrapbook in high school. I put in the obvious photos but also things of an inspirational nature. This poem by Rudyard Kipling was one of them.
  5. The 23rd Psalm – I learned this as a child. And I remember teaching it to my sister when she was a child. (I am the much, much older sister as she would say). I didn’t understand all the theological implications then, but it brought me peace.

This post, How to Read Poetry, a Step-by-Step Guide, gives 20 ideas on, well, how to read poetry. Since I’d like to better educate myself in this area, I a going to try these ideas. And I will look for 5 new poems to chew on. Any suggestions?

Tiny House inspiration – Someday I’d like to live in a tiny house in a beautiful setting.

My Health.

  • A friend tagged me to share this post about what beneficial things can happen when you drink water on an empty stomach.
  • I wrote this post(which links to Twitter and FB) on 3 Ways to Get More Gratitude in Your Life. What would you add to this list?
  • On this date in 2008 I evidently didn’t feel well as someone wished me success in getting better soon. Oddly enough. TODAY I woke up with a COLD complete with the constant drip- like so drippy you put toilet paper in your nose. Oh, you don’t do that.

If you are on Facebook, what did you post in your years past?
