Okay so I am on a roll with these politically charged images. Another Paris prompt, “Tangled up in Blue.” I thought about the recent election. I thought about my political standings now. With hesitation this is what I believe: I believe in putting people back in jobs before universal health care. I believe in a women’s right to her own body. I believe that one of our countries biggest problems is illegal immigration. I believe in myself. I believe in my friends. I believe art is the best therapy. I believe that at some point we are all A.D.D. I believe that a college education costs way too much. I believe in the single mom. I believe in the single dad. I believe in the humanitarian. I believe in God. I believe that words can break bones. I believe in competition. I believe that everyone is not a winner. I believe that losing builds character as does rejection. I believe that I am overwhelmed by all that is going on in this world. I believe in peace in the middle east as well as New Orleans east. I believe in world peace. I believe in the power of one. I believe that the love of a dog is one of a kind. I believe in childhood. I believe in our teachers. With that said…
I am tangled up in these one a days. I am tangled up in to-do lists. I am tangled up in our media. I am tangled up in tweets. I am tangled up in my dwindling bank account(okay maybe I know how to get out of that one). I am tangled up reality television. I am tangled up in picking a nail polish color. I am tangled up in bail outs. I am tangled up in democracy. I am tangled up in my desire to do. I am tangled up in my own thougts. I am tangled up in blue.
I could not imagine a more perfect place to live at 27.
Wishing you a lifetime of paper rainbows…W the citizen
