|Sadly we have no control over some things that happen. All we can do is the weather the storm...M|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|We can blame all things on the weather! Chicken and egg, cause and effect. Our phenomenal industrial and technological evolution over the past 165 years has produced complete fogginess of both purpose and thought in terms of overcoming the real problems and shortcomings of mankind - ultimately increasing both; now there's irony! Time to get with the original blueprint and start gardening again... Neat expression of an eternal conundrum and very deft wordplay. xx|

|THERE'S AN OLD SAYING THAT SAYS, 'NOTHING'S PERFECT'. THIS IS SO TRUE THESE DAYS AND THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT EVEN THE MOST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY CAN'T PROVIDE. THUS, WE ARE FINDING INDIVIDUALS WHO TIRE OF WEATHERING THE STORMS OF LIFE...TIRE OF THE 'SEARCH' FOR THEIR DREAMS...FOR 'CHOICE CONDITIONS'. SO THEY WIND UP FOLLOWING THE BLUE PRINT OF OTHERS AND JUST 'SETTLE' FOR THINGS AS THEY ARE. SAD. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

is such that as an addiction...
isolating us from each other
though we speak in typesetters
opening & closing opening & closing
I used to wear my boots everyday, now I boot up everyday

|You are so right. It is a matter of choices that we make that lead us to where we are. The right to life and to have more children. The choice to consume more than we need. The unwillingness to change because we believe our choices should match our beliefs instead of our facts.
This one is not a dream, it is a sober reality.

|As evidenced by those who have commented below, you have elicited reflection through the expressive theme of your verses here, Jude. I am not an exception and I think about what you have shared. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

|How well put you have described "choice conditions" I have always told my son's all things are entirely up to you and the most sought should be happiness, all else eats away at your psyche.
Mind thoughts I always like, that which makes us think

|It is very much as though we believe that if others do the right thing we won't have to and repeatedly we would like to see sanctions on others for things we do in our daily life. A case in point: We want the companies to reduce the electro-magnetic radiation from cell phone towers but we can not perceive a single waking hour without our cell phones, which we use for everything from taking photos, to playing games, to texting and even talking on the phone, constantly; they have become our new link with the world. Of course there are many other ways that we are ruining our planet and our health, but we would so much rather blame others than take on the responsibility of change, ourselves. Powerfully presented, Jude, you smacked that nail right on the head.

|the emptier we are the more full of ourselves
we become and what was that old saying?
empty vessels make the most noise;
our choices are invariably silly personally
convenient and downright selfish;
as ever, Jude, sharp as a new razor

|On the whole, the planet has even more uncivilized the smarter we think we are becoming. Or as you so rightly stated, "meaningless."|

|Volatile personalities iced with extreme mental impairment with the ability to premeditate the seizure of an entire group of citizens and lead them into a hater's lair, a nightmare of chaos and destructive agenda for the sake of power and control. Deception, criminal behavior, cult mentality and intimidation ingredients for the recipe of organized crime infiltrating into an otherwise happy content group of poets and writers destined to be greats in the literary arena. What really more can be said other than the outcome of what happened in Colorado early yesterday morning is the same end result for a potential murderous interloper on a website so filled with toxic DNA to turn christians and non-christians against one another because of extreme jealousy, going to great lengths to cover up crimes committed in the past engaging an army with their own agenda, and a highly dysfunctional childhood that shaped a boy into a mental man monster of satan where choice conditions on high alert ensnared him in a scheme so rotten the stench of the cyberworld unplugs his vile world.|
