Daily Prompt: Be the Change – what a load of old rubbish

What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?

Senioe residence Weissensteinstr

I am confused. I feel tired, I have caught one of those wonderful head colds that give the impression your head is packed in cotton wool. Ok, no problem, these little infections arrive to test us, to make us strong. To add to this misery my photo programme is not working, so I must be patient, it can only get better.

And now I have arrived. What a wonderful place it looks. Will it be my future habitat when I arrive at the stage where I forget the time, forget the day and forget what I look forward to after my Golden Oldie midday sleep. Yes, it is a local senior residence. I pass this on the road when I visit the local supermarket. Perhaps the shape of things to come. I wonder if I should reserve my room already or wait. It is perhaps better, not all rooms might be equipped with computer connections. for my senior blogging world changing blog. Do I really want to change the world? I do not think so, an impossible task. It seems that our blogging platform is showing signs of dementia and lacking in the inspiration of blog.

A blog prompt once arrived at a regular time full of new ideas, full of prompt, full of energy. What virus has installed itself in the realms of our blog hoster? Is it the couldn’t car less syndrome, the “who cares as long as the money arrives” infection? Perhaps when I arrive at my senior home I will be greeted by many familiar names, those that once told us to “tell us about the time when” on a blog prompting page, but they are spent, exhausted, finished with new ideas. They no longer want to change the world, they have forgotten how the blogging world functions.

I have decided I do not want to change the world with my blog. It is a stupid question and will remain unanswered. I have better things to do with my blogging time. Actually I feel I am being sold for stupid with this blog. It is a cold dreary day with a threat of ice rain. The only positive action is searching for another fresh paper handkerchief and a sneeze now and again, more now than again. Mr. Swiss is alarmed, he might catch my cold. I am also alarmed, as one of us with a head cold is enough, two would be a catastrophe.

“Aaatishoo, Aatishoo” and my head has again been subjected to a tremor, on the earthquake scale of about 7.0, scattering my supply of paper handkerchiefs to the floor and spraying the computer keys with some unknown virus.

Some of us find that the beginning of the new year is the beginning in a new world of blog to change the world,. Unfortunately those that are to inspire us have somehow lost the thread. They are tired, every year the same thing and same procedure and I too am tired of these useless stupid repeats which have left me totally without motivation.

On a lighter note, my photo programme is now functioning and this morning they let me out again for a shopping expedition, I am really out of ideas for this stupid, lazy. monotonous prompt which belongs in the cemetery of unwanted prompts. I think I will read a book, it is more intelligent.

See you all tomorrow if the head cold does not get to me first.

  1. I had a doctor’s appointment, but now, my car has a doctor’s appointment and mine is moved to next week, assuming the other car will make it there and back. It’s always something. But I think this particular something is going to be an expensive something.

        • These things always happen at the wrong moment. My dishwasher is on its last legs and I need a new one, problem being that the working population does not seem to work until the Chrismas/New Year is finished, so next week. We would be lost without a car although the town is just along the road. for you it is a bigger problem I know.


  2. I’ve found there are a lot of people writing blogs who are trying to change the world. I wonder if they are the “mainstream”? Plus, many of the most successful blogs are world-changing in focus. Personally, I think changing the world is the province of the 30 and 40 somethings. I had the idea I was changing the world back then. Now I’m just content to live in it.

  3. I look forward to your daily post it’s becoming part of my morning ritual. You are a fantastic writer with an accomplished humorous style. Changing the world is a tall order, would you perhaps consider the concept of a smaller change, something that not all people accomplish? For instance making a complete stranger who lives half a world away from you starting her day out with a smile or a good laugh. Feel better soon. 😉 G-uno

  5. I’ve always wanted to experience the snowy weather and I love that picture of yours. I’ll call you Ms. Sneezy today (“Aaatishoo, Aatishoo”). Get well soon so you can think of any way to change the world, even in a simple one. 😀

  6. Despite how you feel (and I’m not talking about the physical, but emotional — I do hope you “feel” better — steam and eucalyptus work wonders), you are already enacting change through the impact of your…well, your “chronicles.” You’re a delightful writer (your voice reminds me of old friends I dearly miss) and thoughtful blogger, one who inspires others to write and participate in a writing community.

  7. Haven’t read you in a while, and frankly I just now realized how much I missed it! But what’s with me not being able to find a new prompt today? IS it just me?
    P.S. Hope you’re over the cold today.

    • Thank you. No there is no prompt today, and many other days as well. We got one the day before yesterday. It was new and fresh. Yesterday we got a warmed up prompt from the olden days and today there was none. Christmas New Year they were all on holiday so it was the old prompts again and the future: who knows, They don’t care, so why should we. Perhaps tomorrow will bring a new prompt, or perhaps not. WordPress is full of suspense.

  8. It’s saddening to know that the prompts have stopped arriving altogether. I visit my blog only a couple of times a month or so, but still…
