Nothing to write about, on a no one reading, post. This morning, stare at words on the screen, see if I can find a clip to watch – and gawp. No groaning good. For (me), attitude determines altitude. And getting queasy hearing most of the tones: Hidden-hurt, frustration, fear – all understandable, then there’s smug-ed up, self satisfied. Bang a gong and get it on but what be the outcome?
What's up/what's doin'?
And here’s me bambling along – same song, and could-be hypocrite, in sounding off-like. Yet, do this, to somehow avoid that. Keeping ‘God who answers prayer’ out the equation for a mo. My theory is, the ‘information-sharing, uprising and pressuring hope’ relies on uptake. On replication. On people speaking out -over- listening and watching.
Too much from too few. Too little from too many.
So gotta do, whatcha got to..
Any encouragement? Perhaps video-based ‘hangouts’ the exceptional trend. People finding their on-screen voices, possibly visual presence, or even first-steps and directly communicating in a Q&A, through the live message board.

Awake and open is how I’d self-describe. Corresponds to political and theological.
One more shout from a soap-box. We NEED: Open-source attitudes and activity. Research and typing etc, alternative to mainstream truths to power, rise or fall on the empowerment of multitudes more, truth-tellers.
What Free Software achieved in the 90's and early 2000's and building on/an operating system and various distros for all.
On that, will pause de-bugging for now and complete next watch.
Will add a picture and try find an article or vid this relates later today.
Here I bother anyway - first principles and all that.
All in all... all this growing realistaion does, is send me need-God more and onwards. Accept we're all a bit battered and downtrodden. Empathy over slag-off.
