The Krystol Method

HappySaturdayTweety

Happy Saturday, folks! I must say that I am a little tired from my week this week. I did miss about two blog posts and I apologize for that. But, here I am. I did not leave you long. This week has been very hectic with doctor appointments, my YouTube channel and my failed writing and the readathon.  Okay, wait. I take that back. The writing and readathon is not failed, but I am not ahead as I wanted to be.

Writing

Writing For You

My writing is not at a stand still. I have only missed three days. Now, I am not going to be finished in time for NanoWriMo, but I am going to be finished by August 4th. I will be writing all day today ( mostly) so I am excited about that. My book is getting really good and  I can not wait until it is finished and I…

The Militant Negro™

August is the eighth month of the year (between July and September) in the Julian and Gregorian calendars and the fifth month to have the length of 31 days. In the Southern HemisphereAugust is the seasonal equivalent of February in the Northern Hemisphere.

 In many European countries, August is the holiday month for most workers.

Certain meteor showers take place in August. The Kappa Cygnids take place in August with the dates varying each year, the Alpha Capricornids meteor shower takes place as early as July 10 and ends at around August 10, and the Southern Delta Aquariids take place from mid-July to mid-August with the peak usually around July 28–29. The Perseids, a major meteor shower, typically takes place between July 17 – August 24, with the days of the peak varying yearly.

The star cluster of Messier 30 is best observed around August.

Excited to be Published on NAMI’s National Blog!

Peace from Panic

I’ve written a post on my volunteer work with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), which is now published on their site. You can see it here: https://www.nami.org/Blogs/NAMI-Blog/August-2017/Talking-About-Mental-Health-Should-Start-Early

I’m a presenter for NAMI’s in-school presentation for middle and high school students, called Ending the Silence. We discuss the warning signs and symptoms of various mental illnesses, including anxiety, depression, and suicide.

I’m passionate about speaking to the youth. I think if the conversation is opened up with adolescents, it’s a step toward lessening the stigma. I want teens to know they shouldn’t be ashamed to have a mental health condition and that there is help available.

There is hope.

Some Royal Textures

HorseAddict

The Word Press Photo challenge this week is the word ‘texture“.  I thought a good response would be the textures on view at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto.

The softness of the hair known as the feathers on the horse’s legs and the hardness of the steel horse shoe.

The folds of fabric decorating the boxes in the stadium.

Partisan politics? Or right vs. wrong?

Lucky Otters Haven

Before this blog changed its focus, a few times I said that religion and politics were subjects I wanted to avoid.  I was afraid of putting people off who may not agree with my political and religious beliefs.    It’s ironic that now those two things seem to have become my main focus.

I feel called to write about them now because they are both so intertwined and both have been corrupted by unbridled greed and narcissism.   This isn’t just partisan politics as usual.  It’s not liberal vs. conservative.  It’s not about transgender bathrooms or gay marriage or whether abortion should be federally funded or not.

We’re not in the same world anymore, when people could fight over whether George W. Bush or Barack Obama was the better president or had the better policies.   Both men, in my opinion, were at heart moral men.  Both made mistakes, sometimes…
