For the 4th Prompt of #LoveIsInDaBlog Bee gave us Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal (Taj Mahal) – Finda a Bollywood Song and/or write an Epitaph for lovers.
I have chosen to look back into the 1990’s and I have found a Bollywood song Saathiya Bin Tere Dil Maane Na” by Alka Yagnik, Kumar Sanu . I have included the original Bollywood video as well as an English translation lyric video for your pleasure.
That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by.
For Prompt 3 for #LoveIsInDaBlog Bee has given us Casablanca. I have chosen the version of As Time Goes By sung by Billie Holiday. This is also a lyric video. I have always loved her voice and she had such a parallel life with mine considering all of her issues with addiction which in the took her life.
That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!
Bee has definitely given us a different twist for #LoIsInDaBl21. While this may sound CHEESY, I am going to choose my own love story.
No poetry but I must give props where props are due. My husband and I will celebrate our being together 20 years on February 14th. This man has loved me through the best of times when I am in recovery and working the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, but better yet he has loved me when I am deep in my depression, alcoholism and addiction. because of this I am actually going to attach two songs.
The first is “Amazed” by Lonestar and the second is Lauren Daigle’s “Love Like This”.
That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!
So, I can make the OFFICIAL announcement. On February 1st I am returning HOME to my beloved The University of Texas at San Antonio as a Business Service Center Specialist I with the College of Sciences!!!
I cannot even stop expressing how EXCITED and ECSTATIC I am to be returning home.
Everyone knows I bleed ORANGE and BLUE!!!!
That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!
Linda has given us the prompt of “trick” for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SOCS.
I have not written in a while because I have had no free time and I have not been able to carve out any until today!
Since June 23, I have working through Leading Edge Personnel at a great assignment with The University of the Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine (UIWSOM). Yesterday afternoon at the end of the day as I was leaving campus for the day I received a call from Leading Edge Personnel to inform me that my assignment with UIWSOM had ended effective immediately. I immediately stopped in my head and said, this has got to be a TRICK! The reason I was given was that they had found another individual to fill the position I was serving in as a Phase II Coordinator for the 4th year medical students.
I didn’t even know that they were looking to replace me, as can happen when you are on an assignment through a temporary agency. I really thought that I was doing a great job, there were no indications that something was afoot.
Here is the great thing, I did not drink over it nor do I intend to. When my Higher Power whom I choose to call God closes a door, He will open another one. I pray very soon.
The other thing I did not do is this. The old alcoholic in me would have shot off a scathing email to the powers that be at UIWSOM deriding all of the things wrong with the institution and the people I worked for and with, and blah blah blah blah. The alcoholic with almost 10 months of recovery simply wrote a very professional email and asked simply – exactly what happened for the powers that be to make the determination that I was no longer a good fit and to end my assignment. We will see if I get a response from one of the 3 people that I sent it to.
So, this morning I did wake up and say, was it a TRICK or a TREAT? I am just going to do what I do best, dust it off and hit the pavement again and find another position. I may not find one that pays what I was making there, but something will come.
That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by and have a VERY SAFE and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
