Election Promises

~ Mark Belletini, from “Sonata for Voice and Silence”

 

I hear the polls

are going to be open on Tuesday.

All day.

Good. I certainly intend to go to them.

I certainly invite you to go to them and vote too.

But today I say the polls

are not just open on Tuesday.

I say they are open every day.

Every hour. Even here. Even now.

Right now I am going to vote

for the robin's egg sky,

the vanilla clouds,

the purple shadow spreading

under the ginkgo tree,

I am going to vote for tulips and redbuds.

I am going to vote for love

that does not have

to run in someone else's circles

in order to be love.

I'm going to vote the homeless into homes.

I'm going to vote the uneducated into classrooms

that teach them in the way they learn best,

not the way that would be most convenient.

I'm going to vote the sick into healing.

I'm going to vote the lost into belonging.

I'm going to vote, right now,

for the right to dream of a world

where the word politics

doesn't stop me in my tracks,

and where the word honor still

has a few good meanings left.

I'm going to vote right now

for the power of free people

to actually be free,

no matter who they are,

no matter who has abandoned them,

no matter who hates them.

I actually am going to vote for love,

I am going to vote for truthfulness as the norm,

not the exception .

I'm going to vote for a world

that doesn't vote for killing, control and swagger,

I'm going to vote for you.

I'm going to vote for me.

Right now. Right here. Silently. But for real.

You can partake in this special day, by putting just a little order back into your life. You can start, by picking one thing that is really disrupting your life, and change it...for the good.


 





11th Veterans Day (also known as Remembrance Day & Armistice Day)
In 1918, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in the eleventh month, the world rejoiced and celebrated. After four years of bitter war, an armistice was signed.
The "war to end all wars" was over.


 


13th  Sadie was "the homeliest gal in the hills" who grew tired of waiting for the fellows to come a courtin'. Her father, Hekzebiah Hawkins, a prominent resident of Dogpatch, was even more worried about Sadie living at home for the rest of his life, so he decreed the first annual Sadie Hawkins Day, a foot race in which the unmarried gals pursued the town's bachelors, with matrimony the consequence. And as we learned in school: beware of consequences!!

 


  

And, please don't open that container of moldy yuck you found near the back of the fridge, stick it under someone's nose and say “Does this smell bad to you?!” If they're lying passed out on the floor, that ought to answer your question.

   

15th – America Recycles Day! 


Try out some recycled art!!

 

15th -  National Philanthropy Day - Over the course of history, philanthropists have made great contributions to those in need, and to worthy causes.
While we commonly view Philanthropy as a monetary contribution, the voluntary efforts at fund raising is also within the definition of philanthropy. So, if you have little extra money to contribute, you can turn your labor effort into charitable cash contributions by participating in fundraisers, making you a Philanthropist!

 

17th - Homemade Bread Day  Put your dough where your mouth is! 





19th - "Have a Bad Day" Day

 

 

20th - Absurdity Day  Some days are truly illogical and senseless, the very definition of this day. Have fun with it and don't try to make any sense out of it. Have a mind-boggling and absurd Absurdity Day.


 


 

20th - Great American Smoke Out Day - 3rd Thursday of November

The American Cancer Society is marking the 37th Great American Smokeout on November 20 by encouraging smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit ... They can help you plan your quit day and help you deal with cravings.

It is also intended to raise awareness of the tens of thousands of children awaiting adoption.

 

 

27th - Thanksgiving Day


 

27thPins & Needles Day - It's a day of eager anticipation, as we await an event or for something to happen. One could argue that kids are on pins and needles from now until Christmas, as they nervously wonder if they have been good enough to receive a visit from Santa in a few weeks.   We hope you have a happy, calm, and relaxing day instead.

 

 

28th - Red Planet Day

"You're Welcome!" Day
This very special day comes the day after Thanksgiving. On Thanksgiving Day we say "Thanks!" for what we have. So, it only seems natural that "You're Welcome!" immediately follows a "Thank You!"




30th - Stay at Home because you are Well Day  Call your place of work and say "I need the day off, because I'm feeling really well." Your employers will be so appreciative of your blatant honesty that they will fully support your glorified mental health day. Just Sayin!
