Sing it with me now …
“I’m sending out an s-o-s,
sending out an s-o-s,
sending out an s-o-s,
Did you watch the Hurricane Sandy fundraiser on Friday night?
Do you get emotionally attached to all tragic events around the world like I do?
Were you particularly moved my the Sting performance?
… sending out an s-o-s …
It just rang so true. I bet that’s how many who are still out of power, means of transportation or fresh food are feeling.
… message in a booooottle, yeah …
I can’t help but feel like these people I see in the middle of these travesties are my neighbors.
And some of us are in a position to help financially, and some are located in a geographic area that enables us to be more hands on.
And some of us hear a song during a tribute show and put a message in a bottle.
Ummm, no, that doesn’t really make any sense. I know this.
And it’s not really going to help anyone. I know this, too.
But, I thought it would be fun, and the totally weird thing was that we had just finished a bottle of wine. (Please note: empty bottles of wine are totally not weird for this household)
Now, some tourist in town is probably going to find it. But I’m envisioning some bright eyed kid in Taiwan or something, so don’t ruin it for me. ;)
Buuuuut, since messages in a bottle are not at all modern, I am also super duper excited to introduce you to “the FORUM“.
True story. My brother had this great idea to start a forum for something he’s got going on at work. And I tried to talk him into starting a blog and adding a forum page
’cause I like to peer pressure my older brother. But, it’s a really good idea, right!?!?
