Beware the Orange Man

Beware the orange man.

Hatred cloaked in rationality.

Bombast masquerading as straight talk.

He does not need to sow the seeds of fear and hate and anger.  

Instead he cultivates the sickly plants that already lurk in the shadowed places of the heart.  

He is their sun and strength and provides them with the nourishment they need to become strong sturdy, orange tinted nightmares.

Look at his pride in the crops that he reaps; modified and mysoginistic crops rich in angst and anger and rooted deep in racism and bigotry.

“Look at me!”  Cries the orange man.  “I can feed you all.  Take, Eat, for this is my body.  Drink, for this is my blood.  Then crumple up the kool-aid cup, raise your right hand and repeat after me:

“The orange man is rich.

The orange man is wise.  

The orange man is powerful.  

The orange man will save us.  

The orange man will deliver us from the evil of tolerance, the sin of kindness  and the intolerable burden of love.”

Drying Out After Sandy

Rediscovering Reality is drying off after having been in the direct path of Hurricane Sandy.   It is inevitable that a storm 900 miles wide would impact nearly the entire eastern coast of the United States and would leave behind a wide swath of mayhem and havoc behind her even after making landfall and my heart goes out to everyone, especially those who have had to deal with worse than power fluctuations, minor flooding and a yard full of debris!

Once the cleanup is over I’ll be back to posting on a regular schedule.  Thank you so much to everyone who sent us well-wishes and positive thoughts, they were much appreciated!

Redefining Reality Now On Facebook!

Yes, I’ve gone to the dark side. Redefining Reality now has a Facebook page.

I’ve had enough people say that they wished they could have more of what Redefining Reality has to offer, only in multiple daily manageable bites. So I’ve created a Facebook page that reflects this. You’ll find links to some of the blogs entries from here, yes, but mostly inspirational bits and pieces; quotes, reflections, pictures and words of wisdom to make you smile and maybe give you something to think about during the workday.

So come on in, visit our Facebook page at: Thoughtful Reality  LIKE it (but only if you really do!) or comment on a post to start a discussion. See you there!
