Something to munch on while your having a drink.
This is my second post of the 30 day “Hub challenge”. My first hub “What’s happening to the mountains in West Virginia” shows my concern to a serious environmental issue to which I only became aware of a few days ago.
The 30 day Hub challenge is one of those things that I did on the spot. Not really knowing how it might affect me and interfere with the next thirty days or even longer;
Somewhere deep inside my brain a synapse made a very small electrical connection that in turn made many more connections perhaps even millions. In turn this has triggered many thoughts and feelings about what lies ahead. Sometimes these thoughts and feelings are overwhelming as I set about this typing challenge. And you know what I am only at day two. Heaven help me!
I assume all of you get writers block from time to time.
Well the last couple of days since I pulled the trigger and accepted this challenge I have many instant ideas for Hubs. So many in fact I was swimming no, rather drowning in them.
Anyway I did the right thing as they say and got a note-pad and started to scribble down some ideas.
I started to type some ideas into templates on a computer here at my University Library. After a while and I got an onset of the munchies I went out to the vending machines inserted in some gold coins and proceeded to push my favourite drink buttons.
Those numbers are on these particular machines G3 for Hot chocolate and G8 for a ‘kit-kat’ chocolate bar.
While I was engaged in that process the numbers rang bells in my head G3 conference and G8 summit in Scotland all of a sudden I had visions of rock star Bob Geldorf and Bono attending these meetings with demanding world leaders address World Poverty especially in Africa. After unravelling the trademarked red paper and then the silver paper of the Kit-Kat chocolate bar I placed a stick into my mouth and went munch.
Suddenly an overwhelming sense of gratitude came over me as I sipped on the Hot Chocolate thinking how lucky and fortunate I was to be spending time writing Hubs and choosing my favourite foods in the process. Yes here I am considering the problems of the world with little care in the world really other than making the hubs mean something to you readers.
How different it would be if I had been born into a different gene pool in a different location on Earth Say I was in was in say Ethiopia. I would be struggling to scrounge up a bowl of rice to survive.
Daily I would have to face the grim prospect of war, famine, drought, corruption and general mayhem. How lucky I am to be in this position. For that I am grateful.
