Starting Now

Standard

A new beginning

Deserves a new attitude

I don’t know

If I prepared for that

But certainly

I shouldn’t look at

The world

With such worry

For I know

You want the same

As me

How to live on this world

Without devastation

What should we do

To get there

I’m listening

For every vote counted

Every voice is heard

We have such a short time

To change

Covid

Climate emergencies

Social Security

Inter country relations

Based somewhat on

Immigration

Commerce

Race and religious tremendous similarities

Economy

Social media influences

Standards of living

Power vs control

Animal safety

Let’s make this world

Our home

First things first

Is that your enemy because you

Feel threatened?

Or were hurt?

Knowing why

Determines the path

To the solution

For enemies impede goals

Find a way to turn

Contentious relationships civil

Whereas amicable relationships

Build community

There is no time to waste

Bring ideas

Bring openness

Bring it now

-Jennie Nawrocki

VOTE

Standard

4 years ado I wrote a letter to Donald Trump and posted here on Penaugural.

I said I wouldn’t vote for Trump if he didn’t improve America. Trump didn’t.

So I didn’t vote for Trump when I sent in my absentee ballot.

Trump could have done a better job as President.

Think We Need You

Standard

If the world was a complete horror more people would be depressed but it is not.

There are so many parts to love about this world. It is worth keeping and our lives on it are worth having days of calm, joy and safety.

Unfortunately we have a pandemic, riots in the streets, unbalanced economy and extreme weather.

This can be prevented.

First we have to stop thinking violence. Explain the bad are those hurting others.

Always de escalate, deflect or redirect, and defend.

The best offense is invisible.

Most importantly don’t think your opponent is unworthy think of them as future member of your team.

Think we need you.

Your team is no good if wounded so the less you wound your future team member the better.

Think we need you.

Believe me strategies change when you realize the other side is more important as an ally.

Think we need you.

Think we need you.

Quarantine Activities

Standard

Where have you been

No where I guess

Just my apartment

What have you been doing

Cooking, cleaning, the same as you

Just that

Maybe some exercise and drawing too

Anything else

Along with reading and watching tv

That is mostly it

I think I reorganized my room

A few times too

Oh I wrote and zoomed with some friends

Why what did you do

During quarantine

How Not to Live

Standard

I found my way

I found my path

Not the one I dreamed

Not the one my family dreamed

But it is my fate

Based on the spiril

I went down

Living in gaslight

And self doubt

The black swan

Driven itself

To fall

Forevermore

For there is no

Search and rescue

Just me alone

-Jennie Nawrocki

Living My Best

Standard

There will always be

A better this

A better that

For I am ok

at everything

but excellent

at nothing

No frets

No frowns

Just living my best

Even if it is

Just ok

Thinking about this some people say it is good to know your place in life because we all can’t be number one and stupid to try to improve on average. Then the flip side is why settle for second best you just don’t put your heart and soul into it basically your lazy and have no drive.

So which is it am I lazy or unqualified to improve.

I have been told both but now it is time for me to find out.

How will you find out if you are living at the best you could ever possibly be?

Penaugural Inc.

Standard

There is much to celebrate tonight. Penaugural is now a Corporation specifically Non-profit Corporation. So keep those donation dollars coming and soon we will be able to have a brick and mortar store too.

Thank you to all those that made this possible and keep reading but most of all create art and lots of it. For we need it now more than ever.

Ascension

Standard

Being close to 50 years old and not having any children I still give and have given the knowledge I have to those students I taught and all my nieces and nephews. As always there have been more women in my family then men. Most of my nieces and nephews are out of college and starting their own careers. I could be a meany such as Cronos, Oedipus, King Arthur and Shaka Zulu as well as many other famous stories where their kingdoms were overthrown by their successors and in some ways mine has but in other ways I still can ease the transition or what is left of it.

If I haven’t said I was proud of them for doing better then me now I will and I will also say my last suggestions that they may want listen to even if it is from their crazy Aunt Jennie.

My nephew went to University of Mass at Amherst where I was accepted but had to decline and went to the University of Washington instead.

My niece received a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry my worst subject.

My other niece heals the minds of those in need and coming from a family with a history of depression is very good and models healthy habits as a result.

My sister and her daughter work together without bickering as my mom and I never could.

My other nephews are following my brothers path.

And other niece has surpassed her depression early and moved on to leading those around her.

So much to be proud of as a Aunt.

Here is my advice if you so choose to take it to further your ascension into a life better than mine. To be honest you might know this already but that is why I am crazy telling you information you already know.

Find love but most important know what makes you excel inside and out and harvest those talents, skills and behaviors.

Listen. Know the motivation. Process all possibilities. Proceed morally and ethically correct. There is always knowledge to gain.

If you loved camping and drinking straight from those glacier fed waterways. Save our environment. Mother Earth needs your help and support.

Speak to stop injustices or inequalities. Though be effective and respectful in your approach without cruelty. It creates friendship and stronger relationships afterwards.

Exercise, brush your teeth and eat your fruits and vegetables silly.

Last but not least.

Just as I accomplished every Thanksgiving I hosted keep the good traditions and the mood comfortable with lots of laughter they might want to return next year. For I always said the more the merrier and you are always welcome.

I might have more but that is all I can think of at the moment.

So excel you excel in more ways I could ever imagine.
