only the ocean and me

only the ocean and me

It wasn’t the best of weekends. I read a threatening poem dedicated to a friend. Meanwhile, another friend received angry, unkind messages because of a post I shared on Friday.

My blog has been a vehicle for me to promote women and love. There has always been one constant message – positivity.  It is all I know.

I refuse to condone, accept, or promote hate, envy, bullying, or violence. Love, acceptance, and understanding are the cure.

During my worst moments, I always retreat to my favorite lady. She always resets my mind, my inner peace, and priorities.

I often feel these lyrics by Jack Johnson were written for me.

When this work is done
And this coat is dry
When this world is too much
It will be
Only the ocean and me

When these sails go up
Mountains fade away
Stars come out
I’m finally free
it’s only the ocean and me

Lonely Author: It’s Not Deja Me, It’s Deja Vu

hqdefault

Yes, there was Lonely Author on his best behavior (well as best as it could be) minding his own business, when he suddenly discovered something disturbing. HUNDREDS OF UNANSWERED COMMENTS.

First, the Chimp would like to assure everyone he would never ignore anyone’s comments. Even negative comments would prompt some kind of Chimpism.

Today, my cell phone and WP dashboard have HUNDREDS of unanswered comments that weren’t there last night when I slipped into my sexiest Batman pajamas (yeah the one that has that convenient flap in the back).  I was certain I had already answered some of these comments.  Others appeared before my eyes for the very first time.

Over the next couple of days, the Chimp will try to clean this up. Sorry, for the delay in any responses.

If you receive a reply to a message I already responded to, well, think of it as a duplicate treat.  Hey, I couldn’t think of a better person to deja vu with???

Thank you for understanding.

 

I am the Lonely Author and I endorse this message.
