DP Daily Prompts: Brain Power

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Let’s assume we do, in fact, use only 10% of our brain. If you could unlock the remaining 90%, what would you do with it?

This morning I thought I had to use all of my brainpower to write something to use my time. I was absolutely sure I was using all 100 % of it ,the result was a dismal useless writing which I dared to submit.

If you at WordPress think  I use only 10 % of it every day or assume I do, what happens to the remaining 90%? Does it store as fat like everything else we do not use?

This morning I did need the 90% of my brain to write something worth reading.

All right I’m seriously thinking now what I’d do with the 90% of my brain if I could unlock it. I’d use it to write poetry the kind Tagore wrote, with him gone there has to be someone who should inherit his gift. I’d like to be the one.

The only problem is during Tagore’s time everything in nature was wonderful , the blue sky, the bright sun the forests full of trees, the clear as crystal rivers and oceans lakes and what have you, healthy people, fresh fruits and vegetables.

All that seems to be missing, pollution is the biggest problem, our water is impure, skies are full of smog, and variety of diseases are rampant.

Sure I’d have to write about our planet now, I’d have to give a very grim picture which no one will be interested to read.

Besides how do I know that the 90% of my brain is usable, considering our environment, the food we eat, the air we breathe, I think out of 90% maybe only 50% can be used. I’m sorry but I have to be honest.

If I could use some of it maybe I’ll try to use it to teach the inhabitants of our planet there is still time to improve the  air we breathe, water we drink,  and food we eat!

365 Writing Prompts: Interplanet Janet

You get to design your own planet: tell us all about your planet– the weather,the seasons,the inhabitants. Go.

My planet will be a place where poverty is non-existent. Families will have homes according to their needs, a small family of four members will have a home for four people, i.e, three bedrooms , a moderate size kitchen, two full bathrooms, one for the parents and one for the kids, there will be a powder room with a sink and a toilet for guests.

The kitchen will be equipped with all the necessary appliances, such as a stove, refrigerator, toaster oven  microwave oven and a dishwasher. There will be a double sink in the kitchen, one part for washing and the other for drying. we don’t need a dishwasher every day, a few dishes used can be hand washed and put away.

Larger families will have larger homes.

The citizens will be free to practice their religion without any interference. Education will be free, the farmers will produce and consume their food and sell them in the market, they will own their land, there will be no landlords.

There will be entertainment centers and centers for physical exercise,to make sure everyone is happy and healthy.

The climate  will be temperate,not too hot nor too cold. There will be two seasons, winter and summer. In the winter the citizens will need a light coat or a slightly warmer sweater or cardigan. The summer will be tolerable,not too hot.

The inhabitants will be encouraged to get education according to their potential, there will be regular tests conducted by educators who will decide what kind of education a certain individual needs in order to be useful for he/ she to be a productive citizen.

365 Writing prompts: Necessity is the mother of invention

Imagine, in great detail, an invention that could help reverse pollution– describe for us how your invention works and how it will help save the planet.

I spent a fair amount of time thinking what I could invent to reverse pollution. This is the simplest thing I am able to think of.

I would construct a cardboard box, in it  I will have the names of all the pollutants existing on our planet, beside each name I’ll sew a bell, and blow some magic words on each filthy thing that pollutes our environment, inside the  box there will be a device which can detect anything filthy released in the air, the name will flash, there will be someone monitoring this device 24/7 , as soon as the bell rings the person in charge will locate the name of the pollutant and will press a bell on the side this will reverse the pollution.

DP Daily Prompt: In the Summertime

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Theoretically,summer will return to the polar-vortex-battered Northern Hemisphere. What are you looking forward to doing this summer? If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, what are your fondest memories of summer past?

Unfortunately I am living in the northern hemisphere and am anxiously waiting for summer,which still looks as though it is taking its time to show itself because our behavior is less than desirable. Why you ask, we are not recycling as we should, we are making it look as if every space visible is a huge garbage can, we own too many cars per family and are the cause of pollution. We are too lazy to throw our used coffee cups in the designated areas,we ignore it and throw it on the spot where we had our coffee. We’ve been warned but we ignore the signs.

 

When summer decides to show up, I am planning to get every bit of stuff I am not using and making my house look like a junk yard, donate  to citizens who might find better use for them. 

My garden needs a thorough clean up and perennials would be sorted out, if they need to be thinned out then I’ll do that and not strangle them by overcrowding . The trees and shrubs need pruning, since I won’t be able to do this job,I’d hire the right people to take care of it.

Summer is the best time to get things done outdoors,which is what I plan to do.

When everything looks half decent I might take a trip near my home.I think I have written how I am going to utilize the summer months,hopefully it’ll appear without any further delay!

DP Daily Prompt: Singing the Blues

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

We all feel down from time to time. How do you combat the blues? What’s one tip you can share with others that always helps to lift your spirits?

Lately I’m feeling blue about the weather, which continues to bother me. Our winter started I’d say from late November. Almost every day it snows, if there is one good day there’ll be several stormy days. I fear about losing power,which means everything will be at a standstill, to me no power means, no internet,no warm food, no bath, no heat nothing. I picture myself counting the hours and wondering when power will be restored.

Right now we are having a windstorm why Nature is so angry I cannot tell. Yes we are responsible, we have too many vehicles on the road polluting our skies,earth and what have you.

We have garbage thrown everywhere polluting the town or city we live in. We fail to realize we are the reason our weather has changed. One positive thing that came out of this is we are learning to recycle, which could have started a while ago,but it’s a good beginning.

When I am sad I listen to my favorite songs, I read my favorite book,I talk to my kittens, who probably wonder , “What’s wrong with her, she is too nice today?” Then there is the piano I play for a few seconds and stop because the last time I played was a long time ago,I seem to have forgotten a lot of it. My best way of lifting my spirits is to get my cook books and read the delicious recipes in there, I start my preparation, soon enough I forget what bothered me in the first place.

My one tip for someone who is having a bad day,would be to advise them to open a dessert cook book and read the recipes,pretend they are going to create that wonderful cheesecake they think about from time to time and imagine eating a slice of that wonderful creation and say to themselves, “Who says I am not a good cook, look what I have created,it’s delicious!”

DP Daily Prompt: But No Cigar

I always hoped my husband would move out of Newfoundland and settle in Ottawa,Toronto,or Montreal. It didn’t happen he kept putting it off.

We looked at houses in Ottawa,the prices were reasonable. My husband would always have a reason to say ,”No”. He liked Toronto better . His friend sent all sorts of pictures of houses on sale. He either did not like it or it is too expensive . I was disappointed but did not fuss too much.

Finally I accepted the fact, St. John’s was a city which had everything we needed. Besides big cities had too much crime on the go, pollution was a major concern . Here transportation is adequate for us our car or sometimes using the public transportation is okay where I live. There is no pollution here.

Things have worked out for me. I no longer have the desire to move into a big city. I wouldn’t like to be continuously stressed out. If I need something I can always go for a week and buy it. Life here is pleasant, comfortable and there are people who are friendly and always ready to help,should there be any need.
