New eBook information and release date rev

I wrote my first eBook

 

I wrote my first eBook on autism. I wrote this book to showcase how hard it is for us to get or keep a job. This explains the many barriers we face with seeking and keeping jobs.

I made this book to educate that it’s not that simple for some of us.

 

Some info on my blog here

I will make more books in the future. I may promote my art here to help me get sales. Remember, it’s tough when you are small/starting out.

One Thing I Don’t Like Is Being Reprimanded

I may not have used the right word, but this blog post talks about how instantly reprimanding me, punishing me etc and not tell me what I did wrong or not giving a chance to explain doesn’t help. And I named 2 cases where instantly coming down on me didn’t help.

Fill free to share the video with a friend. Anybody really. Sometimes, you need a different approach.

Things That School Does Teach You But Should

This blog will be about things that school doesn’t teach you but should. Let’s be honest, schools don’t teach you the things you will need in life. The stuff they teach is useless. In a way, school leaves you unprepared for the real world.

My Struggles With Autism

This is a teaser to my blog about my struggles with autism. I will post a brief summary about the blog and provide a link to the full blog.

This blog talks about the struggles I face as an autistic adult.  I found out when I was 15 that I had autism. My school did the testing because our insurance at the time didn’t cover testing. Autism testing is very expensive.

101 Americans Carrying Over $1 Million in Student Loans

Source: zerohedge.com

It is easy to find a scapegoat, the most obvious is the student. The previous generation’s parents grew up in a world where a college education was a must, so they brought up their kids to believe that they needed a college education to succeed. These kids were duped so the next scapegoat is the parents. They were just following a tried and true rule that was true when they were growing up. Their parents may have been newly arrived immigrants or the immigrant’s kids. They came to America to find a better way of life and they were insistent on educating their families.

With all the scapegoats exonerated, what went wrong. There is not one clear cause as it is different for each individual. One cause which applies to all is the downfall of the economy. When the US government decided to alter financial policy so it was more profitable for manufacturing companies to out source, this was major hit to the country’s GNP. It was the first step in taking the wind out of the economic sails.

The students still pursuing their degrees were remiss in following the economic trends so when they graduated they found no jobs in their field of study. They were left with the option of taking a minimum wage job or furthering their education. It was the path of least resistance to further their education pursuing a MA instead of stopping with a BA. It was easier to keep taking student loans and hoping that the economy will change by the time they got their MA. When it didn’t they pursued their PHD. For the ones that decided to cut their losses and take employment, they were unable to keep up with the payments when their grace period was over. They took a route to refinance the loan, back in the 70’s student loans could be discharged under bankruptcy. If the loan was refinanced, it would no longer be consider a student loan. In the following decade, the initiated rulings that made student loans hard to discharge.

Over this time, college tuition increased at a faster rate. They became more unaffordable but the student’s mindset did not change and they were still working to obtain their degree. In hindsight, they should have taken an economics or finance course so they could grasp what they were getting into.

Today, they are in an financial hole that they can’t get out of. Even if they worked 24 hours, 7 days a week they couldn’t dig themselves out of the debt. They are also being saddled with exploding health care costs, I also grant you that they have an auto loan and a monthly cell phone bill.

Online distraction free writing tools with dark background

The distraction free writing tools which I prefer to use, and which I would advise to anybody are the ones with the dark or dimmed backgrounds.

For this purpose, you can either search the Google yourself or take these two as advisable alternatives to whatever text editor you are using. The white and bright backgrounds, no matter how you adjust your scream resolution, will at the end cause you either a headache or some sort of the discomfort. Plus, the ones I am recommending are quite fun to use.

The first one is ZenPen which has a dark theme, option to set a targeted word count and an option to save your text locally on your PC as a Markdown, HTML or text format. You can use it on the full screen which I rarely do and in a desktop mode. Adding of the basic formatting and links is fairly easy, as you only need to mark the text and you will be served with the options in an option bubble above the line. Using is pretty much straight forward and it doesn’t offer any advanced tools.

Another one is called the Typwrittr and that one is more complex and better looking as well. Users have to make a profile and then they can save their text online. This text editor is also equipped with beautiful backgrounds which we can change as we please, offering us an additional source of the inspiration. Unlike with the ZenPen you can’t set a targeted number of the words, but you can monitor the word count in the bottom of your screen.

I hope these two apps will help you to be more creative and what is more important , more relaxed when you are in your creative mood.

Is there a comprehensive definition of mental disorder available in the literature?

Mental disorder is not easy to define. It is a broad area and there is no single definition in the literature that covers all the situations and medical conditions that characterize a mental disorder. A person can be categorized a having a disorder (physical or mental) on the basis of structural pathology, symptom presentation, deviance from a physiological norm, and etiology.

Different researchers have attempted to define a mental disorder on the basis of concepts such as distress, disability, irritability, inflexibility, irrationality etc. Each of these can indicated a mental disorder, however, a comprehensive definition is still lacking. DSM has attempted to define a mental disorder as:

“ a clinically significant behavioral or psychological syndrome or pattern that occurs in an individual and that is associated with present distress (e.g., a painful symptom) or disability (i.e., impairment in one or more important areas of functioning) or with a significantly increased risk of suffering death, pain, disability, or an important loss of freedom. In addition, this syndrome or pattern must not be merely an expectable and culturally sanctioned response to a particular event, for example, the death of a loved one. Whatever its original cause, it must currently be considered a manifestation of a behavioral, psychological, or biological dysfunction in the individual. Neither deviant behavior (e.g., political, religious, or sexual) nor conflicts that are primarily between the individual and society are mental disorders unless the deviance or conflict is a symptom of a dysfunction in the individual”.

So I think any condition that hinders a person from doing their day-to-day duties can be classified as mental disorder, such as depression, where a person loses all his motivation to live fully.

Does smoking cause depression?

 

Hi everyone,

In this post, I will share with you my research findings about the association of smoking with depression and anxiety disorders. I conducted this research during my PhD and tested ~ 3000 participants in the Netherlands.

Previous research has indicated a strong association of smoking with mental illness, especially depression and anxiety disorders, and a two-way association has been found, that is, (i) people who feel depressed/ anxious normally start smoking in order to alleviate their depressed feelings, and (ii) people who start smoking subsequently develop depression and anxiety disorders.

In my research, I selected those participants (age 18-65 years) who were not depressed / anxious when they started smoking. I split the participants in 2 groups, (i) early onset smokers, those who started smoking BEFORE the age of 15 years, and (ii) late onset smokers, those who started smoking AFTER the age of 15 years.It was found that for the early-onset smokers, it took less time to develop a mental illness as compared to the late onset smokers.

I think, the reason of this association might be that the young brain is still under development and may be more likely to be affected with nicotine.

Mindfulness meditation and pregnancy

In some pregnant women, pregnancy hormones badly affect mood. In one study, the effect of mindfulness meditation was observed in pregnant women who were suffering from major depression, and it was found that depressive symptoms were significantly reduced in women who underwent mindfulness meditation training for 10 weeks. The mothers-to-be also showed more intense bonding to their babies in the womb.

Source https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/248807.php

Mindfulness practices decreases depression

In a study conducted at five middle schools in Belgium, involving about 400 students (13 ~ 20 years old), Professor Filip Raes concludes that “students who follow an in-class mindfulness program report reduced indications of depression, anxiety and stress up to six months later. Moreover, these students were less likely to develop pronounced depression-like symptoms.”
Another study, from the University of California, made with patients with past depression, concluded that mindfulness meditation decreases ruminative thinking and dysfunctional beliefs.
Yet another concludes that mindfulness meditation may be effective to treat depression to a similar degree as antidepressant drug therapy”.

Your SteemIt RSS Feed URL Is A Goldmine! Use It!! (I’ll Show You How To Create It)

Your RSS Feed is the most powerful asset you have when it comes to getting the word out about your SteemIt posts. There are numerous ways you can use it to your advantage.

 

No Cryptocurrencies Yesterday

After taking a look at my portfolio stats yesterday morning, I decided it would be the perfect day to put my focus on something else instead of cryptocurrency. So I did, and I ended up playing around with my SteemIt RSS feed URL. There’s a lot of potential in this RSS Feed URL when it comes to generating more traffic to your SteemIt posts. And since more traffic often equals more upvotes, I thought it couldn’t hurt to try out a couple of things.

DQmaDCAZEsBcVuT6AwZZUeCdqyLDUsLT2Nqz2DHMrKF6KeJ.gif

What Is An RSS Feed URL?

 

 

 

In case you don’t know, RSS stands for ‘really simple syndication’, or is also used for “rich site summary”. It is basically a sort of text file that is automatically updated with stripped-down content (for faster loading) whenever you make a new blog post.

 

 

 

DQmaDCAZEsBcVuT6AwZZUeCdqyLDUsLT2Nqz2DHMrKF6KeJ.gif

How To Create And Optimize Your SteemIt Feed URL?

Don’t worry! It may look like it’s a complicated thing and a lot of work, but in reality it is not.

Below you’ll find a video that will walk you through the process.

  • To create your feed URL, you need a service like FetchRSS.
    A membership is free for the first three URLs you create, but you only need one.

 

  • Once you’ve registered for your free account, sign in. Click on ‘MANUAL RSS BUILDER‘ and enter the URL of your SteemIt blog page into the field.

 

  • You will be asked to identify the contents of your blog page, like for example the title, the description, the image etc.
    (You can see what to do in the video below). The parts you really need to set are News Item, Headline, Summary and Illustration. The link is detected on autopilot.

Click To Enlarge Image

  • Once you’re done, click ‘Generate RSS‘. You now have your basic feed URL.

 

To spice up this feed URL and add some extra functionalities to it, you can run it through Feedburner.
I know Feedburner is an old-school tool, but I couldn’t find another one that had the same features and was free.

I’m not going to go through the Feedburner process in this post, but I will probably make a separate post about it soon.
You can follow the steps you need to take to set up your Feedburner URL in the video below.


DQmaDCAZEsBcVuT6AwZZUeCdqyLDUsLT2Nqz2DHMrKF6KeJ.gif

How To Use Your RSS Feed URL?

Like I said before, your RSS feed URL is like a magic tool when it comes to generating traffic.

There are numerous ways to use your RSS feed URL. I’ve listed some below.

(I won’t go deeper into all possibilities today, because I simply don’t have enough time at the moment. I will explain everything in further detail in my future posts.)

 

With your RSS feed URL you can…

  • allow people to subscribe to your SteemIt blog so they will receive a notification when you make a new post.
    (People can subscribe using feed reader services like Feedly or Inoreader. I’ve chosen to use the very old-fashioned Feed Burner to give people multiple subscription options. As you can see, Feedburner also offers subscription by email.)

 

 

U5dtfDQW7vN6g42FvrmpxgSnrEF3K13_1680x8400.png

 

I’ll show you how to set up your RSS feed in Feedburner in one of my next posts.
Meanwhile, you can subscribe to receive my RSS feed updates here.

  • set up a newsletter that broadcasts new posts on autopilot.
    I’ve been testing that out using MailChimp, which is free to up to 2000 subscribers. My setup is not perfect yet, but you can already subscribe to receive new updates in your mailbox by clicking the button below.

 

U5drjtti7jGjKfRZMiKYnbREN2W5nJ3_1680x8400.png

  • add a widget to your website that is showing your latest posts
  • add an entire page to your blog that automatically updates when you make a new post
  • set up an autoblog and attract more readers
  • send push notifications to subscribers
  • add an auto-updating news box to for example Hubpages
  • submit your feed to RSS directories for more traffic
  • use it for SEO – spread your feed to create backlinks

 

All these features can help you to generate more traffic to your posts. And by getting more views, you increase the chance that people will start following you. And when you have more followers, you usually get more upvotes. And more upvotes… you get the picture, right?

By using a service like IFTTT and Zapier, your options become almost unlimited.
For more information on how to use IFTTT, read my post ‘Get Your SteemIt Posts To Reach More People On Autopilot And Earn!

 

These services allow you to:

  • share your posts on your social media accounts on autopilot
  • schedule reshares of your posts on your social media accounts
  • add links to your new posts to multiple social bookmarking sites
  • add your new blog posts to loads of other applications like Google Calendar or Dropbox,…
  • save your blog posts in Google Drive of Google Sheets so you’ll never lose them

And loads more…

Again, you’ll find more info on the use of IFTTT in a post on my old account: ‘Get Your SteemIt Posts To Reach More People On Autopilot And Earn!

 

Now, I’m going to give you the chance to create your own RSS Feed URL. I don’t want to risk an information overload…

I’ll be back with more information soon.

I found a passion for teaching after delivering a drumming workshop nearly 10 years ago. So I decided to retrain and share my knowledge with others.


I hope you find my post a useful read and please feel free to use any of the resources that I’ve created, as I’ll be posting more over the next few days.

Review your role, responsibilities and boundaries as a teacher in terms of the teaching/training cycle.


teacher.jpg

source


As a music specialist and tutor at a special educational needs school, my role is to teach the students rhythm and drumming techniques that will enable them to get the best use out of their instruments. I am responsible for their development as far as getting them ready to perform in a live performance at the end of the school term, for instance, the Christmas production or a special event in the school calendar.


In order to do this, I must build a strong professional relationship between myself and the students which enable them to feel confident and safe, overcoming the boundaries often faced by teachers in my field is also an important skill to learn as the behavioural, emotional and physical demands can become a real issue if they are not addressed early.


In order to carry out my roles and responsibilities in this position effectively, there are certain professional skills required.

These can be divided into 4 different categories

Teacher as a person:

 Confident in communication

 Flexible and patient

 Empathetic and engaging

 Approachable and humorous

Teacher as a classroom manager and organiser:

 Good behaviour management

 Consistent and fair

 Lesson control

 Time management

Teacher teaching:

 Passionate about the subject

 Allow for equal opportunities

 Fun and engaging lessons for all

 Student centered activities

Teacher monitoring student progress and potential:

 A good range of assessment methods

 Aware of student well being

 Realistic target setting

 Give written and verbal feedback where necessary

The Teacher Training Cycle


6bca89f776af0650204989335206c851--classroom-inspiration-blackwork.jpg

source


The teaching/training cycle provides a cohesive structure within which roles responsibilities and boundaries can be assessed and reflected upon. The structure of the cycle is very well balanced so the teacher is able to multi-task stages in a constantly developing way. This ensures that the teacher and students reflective growth of role, responsibilities and boundaries remains core to reaching an understanding of the aims and objectives relating to development and the course.


Roles, responsibilities and boundaries

Teacher Boundaries

Photo taken by me at Calke Abbey


Mutual respect

   •    Safeguarding issues

   •    Managing communication and 
        relationships in the establishment

   •    Setting boundaries and needs

   •    Implement deliver

   •    Identify needs

   •    Plan and design

   •    Implement and deliver

Identify needs


teacher.jpg

source


There are different procedures for identifying learning needs. Many times, in trying to identify the needs of students, a Teacher can find their selves going back to student records which contain personal details and learning needs with information on their preferred learning styles. Students’ gender, age, moral, social, cultural and spiritual backgrounds do vary, so are their reasons for the course. This is why as a teacher in my subject area I look at students’ motivation and behaviour closely in order to identify their needs.


Plan and design


cycle1 (1).png

source


From what I have learnt from my subject area and the School where I teach, planning and designing what is to be taught needs careful planning. Designing lesson objectives, creating different teaching methods and using media based tools really help the students with the overall learning experience which is in line with the organisation and evaluative procedures.


Deliver


cycle7.jpg

source


The stage of delivery for me as a special needs music teacher is vital. This is where, after all the planning and design is done, I have to deliver the content of the lesson to students successfully, as any failure here means the whole process is in jeopardy, which can ultimately cause behaviour issues.


Assess


cycle7.png

source


Assessing students in my subject has to do with how well students have learnt a particular bespoke set of skills. My satisfaction therefore would be if my students have learnt what I intended them to learn during my teaching session. I assess this by asking them questions on the topic taught, giving out fun quizzes and encouraging them to make contributions in a group discussion. In doing this, one has to make sure that there are boundaries. Testing should be fair for all students, it should reflect capabilities as regards differentiation (if possible, a dyslexic student whose writing in scruffy and hard to understand should be given a laptop to use word to process his thoughts), testing should not be used to discriminate between and among students. Assessment should also be valid to the subject.

 


 

 

 


Evaluation


cycle8.jpg

source


Evaluation of the teaching and learning process is successful when I record students’ progress, behaviour and performance with informal and formal assessment results, paying attention to the learning methods which most enhances students’ learning in order to adjust my present and future lesson plans for my subjects if need be.

“Competence is possessing skill and knowledge that allows us to do something successfully. It also describes the ability to apply prior experience to new situations with good effect. Our competency usually increases over time as we acquire more information and ability through inquiry, observation, and participation”. Author: Anon


To summarise all of the above factors would be to say that these roles, responsibilities and boundaries assist teachers in delivering and enabling learning not only as a teacher teaching, but as a classroom manager and organiser and when monitoring student progress and potential. The personal qualities and skills acquired with the use of a model such as the Teacher Training Cycle enables continuous improvement in their procedures through assessment and reflection, this also allows the teacher to overcome possible boundaries they may face; this in essence ensures that the learner has a positive learning experience which aids the development of knowledge and understanding in their chosen subject area.

Got Hacked On SteemIt? Here’s How To Get Your Account And Reputation Score Back!

This step-by-step guide will show you how to recover your account and your reputation after getting hacked.

broken-business-2237920_1920.jpg

It Can Happen To Everyone

If you’ve been following my blog, you probably know I got hacked last week. If you haven’t read my post/ warning yet, please head over to: ‘The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned From Getting HACKED!!.

Unfortunately, the phishing scam is still going on, and people are still falling victim to the hackers.

divider.png

What’s Going On?

In case you haven’t heard the news yet: hackers are compromising accounts by sending out phishing messages with a fake link.

The phishing messages take many forms.

When you click the link inside, you’re taken to a fake website (like for example steemil.com or steewitt.com) which resembles SteemIt.

You’re then asked to log into your account. Once you do, the hackers have access to your credentials.

Once the hackers can access your account, they use it to send out their phishing message to others, trying to get more people to click their fake link.

When you’ve exposed just your private posting key, that’s all they can do and your money is safe. However, if you’ve exposed your private active key – or even worse: your master password – the hackers will withdraw your SBD and initiate the power down of your SP.

divider.png

Protection Measures

Once the phishing comments that were sent out from your account are detected, the people over at @steemcleaners will start flagging them. When a comment has been flagged, it is hidden from the public. This way, the risk for others to click one of the phishing links is reduced to almost zero.

flagged.pngThe downside of this is that your reputation score will go down to -1.

divider.png

Don’t Go Around Blaming People

I’ve seen several posts in which people are pointing their finger at the owner of the account that was used to post the phishing message.

Please don’t do this. The account has been hacked, just like yours. It’s the hackers that are sending out the phishing messages. The only thing you can blame the owner of is of being stupid enough to get his account hacked. By blaming the owner, you’re increasing the damage that has already been done.

divider.png

What To Do When Your Account Has Been Hacked

I’ve noticed quite some people have abandoned their hacked account and created a new one, or still have their reputation score at -1.

As you can see, I recovered my account and got my reputation score back up, so it is possible to get out of this with just little damage.

Below, you can find the steps to take to get everything back to normal.

source (1).gif

1. Start the account recovery process.

How to do this depends on how you’ve created your SteemIt account.

  • If you’ve created your account through the SteemIt website itself, you need to initiate the account recovery process by clicking the ‘Stolen Accounts Recovery’ link in the menu you can open by clicking the menu item at the top right of your screen.

    You’ll have to enter your account name and your password before you can click the ‘Begin Recovery’ button. Then, you’ll have to enter the email address associated with your SteemIt account. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have to be patient, because it can take up to 24 hours for the confirmation email to arrive.
    Once you’ve received it, simply follow the instructions given.

  • If you’ve created your account through Blocktrades, you’ll need to send an email to the Blocktrades support service. Someone from @blocktrades will then contact you. You’ll be asked to confirm your Blocktrades email address and you’ll need to send your password. They will then start the recovery process.
  • In case your account has been created through AnonSteem, you’ll have to follow the guidelines for their ‘Stolen Account Recovery’ process, which have been outlined here.

2. Editing the comments

red flags.gif
Once you are back in control of your account, you need to make sure the flags will be removed. @steemcleaners will do this for you, providing you edit every single phishing comment that has been posted from your account so it will become harmless.

This will take some work and time, but if it can help you to get your reputation score back up, it’s definitely worth it.

DO NOT DELETE THE PHISHING COMMENTS!!

To get started, go to https://steemworld.org/@yourusername.
(Change ‘yourusername’ to your actual username)

Scroll down to ‘account operations’ and find the spam comments that have been posted from your account.

Then, click the permalink.

 

UPDATE:

There now is a script available that allows you to mass-edit comments. CLICK HERE to read the update.

 

comment detail.png
Click to enlargeThis will bring you directly to the comment that was posted.

From here, you should be able to edit the comment. Replace the existing text with ‘comment deleted’

edit comment.png
Click to enlargeSave your changes.

You should do this for EVERY SINGLE PHISHING COMMENT.
(I told you it would take some work…)

3. Get the flags removed

Once you’ve edited all comments, visit the Steemcleaners Discord channel and tell them you’ve edited all the comments.

Be patient, it can take a while before someone is available to help you out.

Someone from @steemcleaners will then remove the flags so you can get back your reputation score.

If you’ve received flags from others, contact these people, explain the situation, tell them the comment has been edited to make it harmless and ask them to take away the flag.

That should do it.

When your account and reputation score are back up, you can decide whether or not you send all the people who got commented on a short comment with your apologies.

How To Prevent This From Happening Again

It’s a shame it took such a drastic event for me to learn a couple of important things concerning account security.

First of all:

Always triple-check the URL to see that you’re actually on SteemIt before you enter your credentials.

Better be safe than sorry!

NIGERIA ARE WE LAZY?!!!!!!

IMG_20180421_054435.jpg

It was bad enough that the president spoke in an international event where other nationalities were present, It was bad that President would speak so of younger Nigerians who put their lives on the line to install buhari goverment I am not surprised to see that kind of statement coming out from the mouth of so called President, because the government does not believe in the Nigerian youths from inception.

“If you look at the arrangement, the appointment, and how the government relates with the youths of this country, you will see that they do not have respect for the Nigerian youths despite the contributions of the youths. We put our lives on the line to fight against the previous government but when it comes to sharing the goodies of government, the youths are nowhere to be found.
“We are completely disappointed in Buhari
Nigerians its time we fight for our rights, let vote right let vote for the right person,
President buhari is not worthy of our vote
Let us show him we are not lazy.
Despite the hard working of the youth !

This is the picture of the jobless people hawking on the street yet our president says we are LAZY!!
IMG_20180421_052853.jpg
2019 is another oppourtunity Lets vote out Buhari and Vote in the the right person
NOTE; Our vote is our power

Not that all will be well
Be rest assured
It will soon manifest
All is well

All cannot be well
Except you do your best
Then I assure you
All is well

Weeping has become your breakfast
Difficulties have become your neighbour
It will soon be over
All is well

Take life simple
Don’t be too anxious
Don’t be depressed
All is well

Reject worries
Tell yourself every morning
Reiterate it every moment that
All is wemm am using this medium to tell you that ALL IS WELL in all situations.

Mark of God 777/666 Mark of the Beast.

Revelation 7:2-3 …’And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.’

Revelation 13:16-17 …’And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, OR the name of the beast, OR the number of his name.’

God tells us that his own mark or seal in the forehead, is our thoughts being focused always on His Word. The mark of the Beast therefor is the keeping of the law of the Flesh in the mind. The mark and seal of God on the hand is of the Works that come from the mark in the forehead. Thus, the mark on the hand of the Beast is similar, but to the flesh and sin.

So if you’re reading Revelation and waiting with paranoid suspicion about some kind of visible mark that denotes a good or evil person; pay attention. The book was written for THIS generation. Want to know the numbers there, like they really matter? 14 Generations from Adam to Abraham. 14 Generations from Abraham to Noah. 14 Generations from Noah to Christ. 14 Generations from Christ to the Reformation. 14 Generations from then … well, Hello. That may well be your birthday too. God has been offering his seal since Cain. The beast has been taking his own anyway — the Beast is You. Or rather, Us. The things WE decide are okay or aren’t. The way WE profane the temples.

So are you waiting for some tattoo or afraid of your social security number? The number of the beast is 666. 7 is God’s number for completion. Get the point? It isn’t as confusing as you might want to think it is. It isn’t far off, but Right Now. So take your pick … choose your mark. Take the right one. And follow us who follow Him.
