Government Shutdown, Purposely Living

Lean on me

As we near almost a month mark since the government shut down I just wanted to remind everyone – there’s always tomorrow. Things may look bad, bills are going unpaid, mortgages and rents are due, but wake up each day and try to look on the bright side of things. Find the people in your life who really matter.

(Bill Withers – Lean on Me resung by Michael Bolton)

They are real brothers/sisters where and when it counts. They don’t say you can depend in me. They actually mean it. Also like the song says, you won’t know until you ask someone for help. Don’t be ashame to ask. It may make a difference one day to the next just helping a friend .

Help a friend

So many are in real need now so keep your eyes pealed for those in real need folks. You may think you know but you don’t. They are really good at hiding from everyone because of their pride. People are in dire straits. I’m not talking about the banks and the big corporations. I’m talking about consumers, the man on the street. The small guys.

Talking with one of my Lyft drivers and he said things are at least 50% slower since the shutdown. Just imagine what that does to his income and his ability to produce.

Savings are being depleted to cover a range of expenses. Some have had to tap into savings at the cost if being taxed. many do not have the luxury of savings. There is nothing.

So just be patient with yourselves out there. Be careful what you allow the media to leak into your souls right about now. It’s often time information meant to steer your thinking away from what’s really important. What is that?

Be kind

We are important. We have to take care of each other because those in power take care of themselves by both sides. They don’t really care about the masses. So take care if yourself, your family and friends. Be good, kind and loving

The craziness will end. Try to stay intact until such a time.

Peace to you

Crystal

Surround yourself in love

Real life Batman 34th Street to Dekalb Ave NYC Gotham

Real life Batman

34th Street to Dekalb Ave

Never witnessed anyone maneuver the MTA like this brother on a Sunday morning.

See Something Say Something

My son and I were both Brooklyn bound towards Sunset Park area. Between stations we must have seen at least 3 different passengers exchange seats across from us when we noticed a bag under the seat. This is the actual photo I took while on the train Sunday. If you zoom in under the empty seat. You’ll see it.

Our plan was to call the conductor on it but before we had a chance, one of the previous passengers zoomed in when the door opened at Dekalb, grabbed the bag and announced, “I’m a real New Yorker, the original Batman of Gotham, think I don’t know how to retrieve my s$&@?” Struck a pose and walked out the cab.

An actual shot of the cab we were in before he came back.

All in a matter of seconds. My son and I were in awe. How did he do it?? We were speculating maybe he jumped in an Uber? My son says it’s most likely he grabbed a J line and hopped on over. I don’t know. Not all that familiar with the NYC Subways.

Whatever he do, he did it super fast to beat the train he was originally on, and transferred elsewhere. Major feat in this city, plus thankfully arrive at the exact car and retrieve his bag.

That is definitely some Batman stunts right there indeed.
