Sometimes, you just have to go where the randomness takes you.
For today and yesterday, using the random process I have created (honest…no d4s were hurt in the making of this posting) to derive various items to write about, both snippets pointed to one theme – change.
For Saturday, I was pointed to page 213 of The Facts on File Dictionary of Proverbs which had the saying one nail drives out another.
For today, my method of ceditra brought me to page 462 of the same book which has the proverb all good things must come to an end.
Even a brief look at the news the past couple of days shows that the biggest change has taken place in the land of Egypt.
I’m no sooth-sayer so I have no idea how this all turns out, but I have a feeling the Egyptian people will come out okay. My only reasoning for this is this story that talks about how the people of Tahrir Square, after President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, started working together to clean up the square.
Any mass of people that can go from massive celebration to the responsibility of picking up the trash afterwards has a great deal going for it.
Now, I would like to add my artistic voice to all the creativity issuing forth about Egypt. Since the Arabic culture praises poetry, I offer my own poem, done in a style I have created called trangoe. For a quick reminder on the rules of trangoe, please click here.
Giant steps down,
Her people step up
Best of luck.
