The prompt for our artistic creations for today given to us by the people at the Daily Post division of Word Press is “Mask“.
What type of Masks do you Wear?
As an introvert, I wear a mask to hide behind my realities of life. Generally do not enjoy speaking to strangers. Detest putting myself out there for the public to view. Prefer talking to others over the internet where I feel much more comfortable, since I am a computer nerd at heart. Not too many people get physically attacked over computer postings, as long as you do not give out you exact location of where your computer is located. So I exist in the dark of our house. Keep methods of self defence near me in every room here!
My husband and I took classes in Taekwondo while we were still dating years ago. Still keep the moves in practice in case I ever need to defend myself today. Let some evil person try attacking me, could use the exercise that would come from killing someone! (Have never actually killed anyone, yet.) Just remember all the heart pumping fun we used to have at practice with our instructor.
Please Help Fight Terrible Disease
The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

The prompt for today was unappealing, so I used the prompt offered on December 15th by the extroverts at the Daily Post division of Word Press. The prompt I have chosen to use is “Unexpected Guests“. They also gave two additional sentences to whet our writing apatite – “You walk into your home to find a couple you don’t know sitting in your living room, eating a slice of cake. Tell us what happens next.”
As an introvert who is very concerned with safety, if my husband is not home, the first thing I do is get on my cell phone which I carry with me everywhere and call 911! Proceed to the back door where my wheelchair ramp is (if I am not deterred) and escape with my life still intact.
Once the police arrive, have them dispose of whatever the intruders were eating (cake is not normally in our home) and thank the nice officers. Ask the police if they had any idea how the people were able to break into our home, so we can correct the security problem.
If my husband is home, there will be an argument after the strangers leave about why he didn’t warn me they were coming. After the heated discussion is finished, resume talking about what is on the schedule for the remainder of the day.

All help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity!
The prompt the wonderful people at the Daily Post group of Word Press gave us for the day is: “The New School“. They also gave us a suggestion followed by two thought provoking questions: “You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?”
First off the school will have to be completely handicap accessible! Children may have been born with natural physical limitations, they need to still be able to be included at the school. Will still concentrate on reading, writing, and math (just not the dreaded Common Core of today)! Music will be included in some form in the school. Deaf students may possibly enjoy the physical vibrations caused by the music. Blind students have absolutely no difficulties hearing the music!
Kids should all learn skills necessary for daily survival out in today’s world. Basic self defense classes could teach the children how to defend themselves from other creatures existing in the world today! People have a huge bad habit of taking advantage of the weak. Kids need to know what to do. Actual animals like dogs could also be a threat to kids.
Search for what each kid has to offer the world. You may come across the next military leader the world needs to discover to insure we will see peace, some day! A budding artist may be attending the school, you just have to give them the opportunity to hone their skills. The next William Faulkner‘s mind may exist in your very classrooms!
You just need to give the kids a chance to shine at their own talents that you will help them discover. Give them exposure to as much information as you can, then step back. No idea how the kids will benefit from their exposure, give them time and encouragement!
