I was thinking about politics. Small-p politics.
The Wikipedia describes politics (from Ancient Greek: πολιτικά, translit. Politiká, meaning “affairs of the cities”) as “a set of activities associated with the governance of a country, or an area.
“It involves making decisions that apply to members of a group. It refers to achieving and exercising positions of governance—organized control over a human community, particularly a state.”
This is important stuff. I suppose it’s inevitable that human endeavors, especially those involving the exercise of power, have been defined in less than glowing terms. And this coming from an old political science major.
Still, I try to encourage every citizen who can to try to keep up with the political issues where you live. Contact your representatives. Express your opinion. Vote.
And some of those items also apply to ABC Wednesday. Contact your fellow contributors. Express your opinions about their posts. I hope they elect to do likewise.

…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night
First of all the Panther. His name is Mowgli. He originates from my hometown zoo Wildlands Emmen but was moved, together with his wife Rica to another Dutch Zoo, Artis in Amsterdam. June 28th 2017 they became parents by 2 little cubs. My last fisit to that zoo was on July 18th, just 3 months ago. Those little ones are almost as big as their parents by now. You may watch my other photo’s from that visit HERE
As you might know by now, my most favorite animals are birds. My number 1 bird is the Peacock.
The photo you see here, I made june 6th, not in a Dutch zoo though but in a German one, in Rheine to be specific.
The other photo’s I made that day can be watched HERE
Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

ABC-Wednesday Round 21 ; Letter P
P for Poem
Well here we are and its P already. Todays post is about Poems. What is it about Poems that move us so? Is it the Power of the Poet or is it just the phenomenal use of words? I feel poems right from the ancient ages help shows the culture across the ages and the life back then of the folks from the common to the most uncommon. I have always been Passionate about Poems but I also have a phenomenally weird inclination for the dark side so here is one of mine………..
Vanity fair is an everyday circus
Played not only by the rich but common people like us
Always comparing, trying to outdo each other
We keep getting into one muddle or another
Let not your vanity become too cheap
since what you sow so shall you reap
So what exactly is it we fear
There is a place for everyone here
Let go of it and be what you are
Be true to yourself and you will go far
why try being bad at being what you are not
When you can be good with all that you have got
So Pretty Please Post your Posts and we will be right back to it !
