I think I decided to do a weekly post at the very least. I’m really excited because I have a few short story ideas, but I haven’t exactly had the time to write them down yet. Absurdism is a genre I’m interested in, but I’m not sure how many would understand the stories and the meanings that myself as the author put into the plot. However, that is the price of writing.
One of the the main events that has occurred within the past week is that Indiana has become the 20th state within the United States to pass marriage equality. YAY!!!!! I’m excited because I believe that love has no bounds in gender, religion or distance. I’m from Indiana so I’m really glad that it has been accepted. I know my state is conservative but it proves that we are moving forward. One of the greatest quotes I’ve seen about marriage equality is a simile:
“Saying that two other people can’t marry because of your beliefs is like saying you can’t order that doughnut at the bakery because I’m on a diet.”
On a final note, make someone smile today. Do something that the other person can’t pay you back for, whether that is holding open a door for a complete stranger or just giving a friend 15 minutes of your undivided attention. I do that when I volunteer at my local animal shelter. I socialize the dogs and cats. It gives me joy to see the animals pull through and bring smiles to strangers when they see them, either when the people are “just looking” or knowing which animal they want to adopt the moment they walk in.
Stay calm and carry on this week 🙂
