Mary's Mixed Bag over at Real Toads, is to write about the ordinary.
Only one topic on my mind this morning, after which I will pen a poem.
It was an ordinary day until the notice from Google turned up in my junk file saying I am not in compliance with their Name policy-huh?- because I am using Sherry Blue Sky. I am not a felon, I am a senior doing good things online. They are perhaps just a tad over-zealous, methinks?
They say I have two days before my blog is affected.
Visions of two years worth of writing vanishing into the ether freaked me out!!!!!!
I spent all of last night and all of this morning clicking around the Very Unhelpful Help pages,
where there is no human being to respond and, in between times, deleting the millions
of Google emails that have been barraging me from their Forum site and which I cant make stop - which means I have been once again clicking around the Help Forum for THAT problem.
Trust me, you do not want Google to notice you. I am living in Google Hell right now.
I think maybe I have fixed the name issue. But there is no one to tell me so.
I just want life to go back to Ordinary! But here is what I would have written before this nightmare began (why do tech problems dog me, when that is my idea of utter torture?) Forgive the digression, I just had to rant.

but, given the state
on this earth,
even turning on a tap,
eating a meal,
walking down a street
safe from danger,
May we be
