Top 5 Wednesday

Hello book world, we are having another go at Top 5 Wednesday with:

March 15th- Books You Felt Betrayed By
–Beware the Ides of March! What books (or characters) did you feel betrayed by, for whatever reason…big or small

Let us dive into it?

1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Is that it?” I said after finishing the story. How can a book which features on 98% of Classics books to read, fell so flat. I expected more, I needed more. I needed Gatsby to be more than a love-sick puppy and I needed Daisy to just be more than she is and for the love of narrator will  Nick grow a pair and stick up for himself.At least he had a shred of humanity in the end.

The world’s oceans are storing up staggering amounts of heat — and it’s even more than we thought

Standard

​I have focused over the years mostly on the effects of Climate Change/ Global Warming on humans and dreading Summer and the impending dome of drought. However, it is interesting and informative to consider the Ocean. My one thought on warmer years always turned to “my goodness, more intense hurricanes.” Yet, the effects on the ocean extend to marine life and the beauty of the environment. One may think so what  animals suffer, they will just migrate to a suited temperature. Or its only coral, let it bleach. It is important to note that we do not live a solo life as humans, we need the environment and animals; a fascinating yet daunting reality. If marine life dies through coral bleaching and warmer weather then it means that our body temperature is heating up. I do not know about you but I hate feeling hot and no AC vent will ever replace the natural cool air. You may be able to afford AC but what about hundreds around the world who will die because of heatwaves and thousands force to flee because of raising sea levels in the Pacific. Stop to think if the coral slowing starts decaying how it will impact Australia’ s Barrier Reef. The touristic appeal to these parts may subside because well, there will be nothing to see. A drop in tourism means a negative economic impact for the country.  I urge you to not only think of your piece of square block but think of the earth as yours. Read the article below (link provided) and enlightened yourself about the impact of heat on the ocean especially if you surrounded by the Atlantic and southern seas.

A Tribute to Woman

Standard

Happy International Women’s Day

Yelhispressing

Tribute To Woman

Woman formed out of a man yet strong, strong as thousand

Oxens guarding her flocks whilst they gaze at a

Mighty world dipped in treachery. Yet again and

Again she raise after every fall. I urge you to

Navigate through life’s valley and hills with courage – Woman.

~.~

I write this Acrostic poem to celebrate the toil of women on International Women’s Day. I celebrate you woman, not solely because I am one but I see the way you dedicate your life to your children, other women and the men in your life and you earn that praise. If you- woman- perhaps come across this poem feeling disappointed in your life’s journey, I urge you to take another step. That extra step may you lead you to your awakening but you will not know if you do not try. I know you have taken so many steps so far…
