The Wooden Globe Engine Coffee Share

Another week, another Sunday, another coffee.  How are ya?

Since news broke last night of another terrorist atrocity in London and other reports during the week of more suicide bombings in Iraq, it kind of feels like another post dedicated to my feelings about what’s going on is pertinent.

Coming up with what those feelings are is quite difficult.  I’m fed up of it.  I’m fed up of… I’ve been stuck at that part of the sentence for that last 15 minutes or so.  I’m fed up of the fact that people think actions that take innocent people from families is a reasonable act.  I’m pretty sure I’ve phrased that incorrectly.

I can’t fathom how driving a van in to people and stabbing those you didn’t hit is seen a reasonable advancement of a cause.  I’m fed up that I have to try to work that out.

With that in mind, some of the more irrelevant stuff that happened in my week.

I think I’m causing people a problem politically at work, simply by being there.  No-one quite seems sure whether they can give me work and whether it’s work I should be doing.  For my part, I’m just doing what I feel like and it’s quite refreshing.

I bought a film for a fantastic price.

I mentioned last week that I hadn’t been sleeping well.  Sleep is getting a bit better.  It’s not perfect but it’s OK.

I found out that Gal Gadot wasn’t in Firefly.  Apparently these are two different people:

I watched football with an Italian.  They are definitely as passionate as the stereotype!

I went for a walk and found an observatory, a duck, a coot, a wooden globe engine, a fountain, a rose garden and amazing ice cream.

Petty Annoyance Of The Week comes courtesy of DeJaneiroBoy who let me build up a Pokémon gym and then took my spot.

I got confused how I was supposed to open this packet of dried fruit to put in my porridge.  It wasn’t giving me much to go at if I used the arrow for guidance.

Timehop had a day of showing me memes.  It showed me this one.

It’s solid advice, but it just serves to remind me that you can think about it everyday and still not find a solution.

I found some love locks.

I know it’s not the best photograph.  I didn’t intend to make a great feature of it but the more I thought about it the more I thought it worth sharing.  The four brass ones all had messages inscribed to loved ones.  It was the others that caught my eye.  The two tied together, rusting, and the industrial effort to the left.  Made to last, and an interesting representation of the sentiment around the recent terrorist attacks.

What’s wrong with the world, mama
People livin’ like they ain’t got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that’ll bring you trauma

Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin’
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK

But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate, yeah

Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y’all, y’all

People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach?
Or would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love, the love, the love

It just ain’t the same, old ways have changed
New days are strange, is the world insane?
If love and peace are so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong?

Nations droppin’ bombs
Chemical gasses fillin’ lungs of little ones
With ongoin’ sufferin’ as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin’ really gone

So I could ask myself really what is goin’ wrong
In this world that we livin’ in people keep on givin’ in
Makin’ wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin’ each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin’ on but the reason’s undercover

The truth is kept secret, it’s swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where’s the love, y’all, come on (I don’t know)
Where’s the truth, y’all, come on (I don’t know)
Where’s the love, y’all

People killin’, people dyin’
Children hurt and you hear them cryin’
Can you practice what you preach?
Or would you turn the other cheek?

Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love (The love)?
Where is the love, the love, the love?

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m gettin’ older, y’all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin’
Selfishness got us followin’ the wrong direction

Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema

Yo’, whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity

That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ down
There’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
Gotta keep my faith alive ’til love is found
Now ask yourself

Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?
Where is the love?

Father, Father, Father, help us
Send some guidance from above
‘Cause people got me, got me questionin’
Where is the love?

Sing with me y’all:
One world, one world (We only got)
One world, one world (That’s all we got)
One world, one world
And something’s wrong with it (Yeah)
Something’s wrong with it (Yeah)
Something’s wrong with the wo-wo-world, yeah
We only got
(One world, one world)
That’s all we got
(One world, one world)
