“Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ect.” Find a word with the letters “ect” in it, and base your post on that word. (Not to be confused with “et cetera,” which is “etc.”) Enjoy!”
This might be short. My computer is in the shop with a dying hard drive and its info being transferred to a newer model. It’s been a long time since I did a post from my phone….
I’m not perfect, but I deserve respect. RESPECT. Doesn’t everyone deserve respect? My short, PC answer is, “Yes.” But I’m not 100% sure. There are few things I’m 100% sure of, because, after all, anything is possible.
I could say respectfully, “No thanks. I’m not interested.” But if someone keeps bugging me after I’ve said, no, I might say, “Hell, no.” Or Leave. Me. Alone. If I don’t call them demeaning names, that’s somewhat respectful.
You know who deserves respect? Mother Earth. I don’t have respect for people who disrespect her.
A long time ago, I read a book called, Ecotopia. It was about a culture of sustainability and respect for Mother Earth that took hold in a big way in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington state. It was a eutopian novel. So Northern CA, Oregon, and Washington state divorced the United States and formed Ecotopia. Maybe this book was ahead of its time. Or maybe we’ll all start waking up and unite for our planet and no body will need to get a divorce from the country. Either way, I hope it’s respectful. Could we have a respectful revolution? They had a “civil war” once. No, let’s not go there. The times they are a changin’. That’s for sure.
My Saturday morning will be spent planting trees in the inner city. Because that is something within my power. Little pockets of Ecotopia. Tiny but teeming with possibly.
It’ll probably be late Saturday afternoon before I get my new computer and catch up with all the interesting ect streams.
Ha! I just realized that Ecotopia does not contain ect. Well that’s the way the stream of consciousness tumbles, fumbles, and flows.
Here’s a picture from my phone:

Here’s a song:. RESPECT
