HELP! HELP! .
If you were unfollowed by me tonight, i am SOOOOO sorry!!!! Please tell me! I was checking in on somebody who is MIA and accidentally hit "unfollow all" when i meant to unfollow NO ONE! .
At least it looks like IG put a stop to it before it got worse (see red alert message at bottom)

"She loved him like he was
The last man on Earth
Gave him everything she ever had
He'd break her spirit down
Then come lovin' up on her
Give a little, then take it back
She'd tell him about her dreams
He'd just shoot 'em down
Lord he loved to make her cry
You're crazy for believin'
You'll ever leave the ground
He said, Only angels know how to fly
And with a broken wing
She still sings
She keeps an eye on the sky
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you ought to see her fly
One Sunday morning
She didn't go to church
He wondered why she didn't leave
He went up to the bedroom
Found a note by the window
With the curtains blowin' in the breeze
And with a broken wing
She still sings
She keeps an eye on the sky
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you ought to see her fly
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you ought to see her fly"

"Money makes a man and that's a crime
If we all were rich we'd spend more time
With our daughters and sons, they're loosing their minds
We all feel hurt here's mine, here me now
Cause, no guns are allowed in here tonight
We're gonna have a free for all, no fights
I wanna get lost in the crowd in here tonight
I need to hear my thoughts turn the music up loud
Let the music play, me don't want no more gun-play
When the bodies hit the ground, there's nothing let to say ay ay
Me don't want to see no more innocent blood shed
Me don't want to see no more youth dead
Come hear me now
Yeah, yeah, yeah, news from back home
This is when it hurts to be gone
Two more young names to be carved out of stone
one summer day that went horribly wrong
Got my dawg on the phone
Crying and saying to leave him alone
But I'm not leaving his side
I know that somebody died, somebody's child
Some people ducked down and some people hide
Some people just cannot react in time
Bullets do not choose a victim
It is the shooter that picks them
They just cant wait to get you in the system
The district attorney could use a conviction
Told you no guns and then you didn't listen
Life is so heavy with that on your soul
Dedicate this to Shayne and Josh
and pour something out for the lives that they stole
416
Money makes a man and that's a crime
I wanna get lost in the crowd in here tonight"

Tagged by friends @yoitsmeguyz and @cgfotografi to reveal of 20 things about myself, I have compiled a shortlist. I have posted these in the past and so I will try to make this different. This photo is one from the spring i never posted.
.
1. I have not eaten meat since I was 12 years old. 2. I will cook meat for my family but I won't touch it with my hands. 3. I never watch TV but when I have time to I like to watch crime shows and documentaries. 4. I am frugal, I don't like to pay full price for anything and get creative with repurposing. 5. In light of number four, I hate clutter and but have pack rats in my family. 6. I was offered a job in Argentina that I almost took for this fall but another offer came along that I could not refuse. 7. My dream is to one day go to Africa to help in any way i can offer. 8. I love people and don't seem to learn when they stab me in the back. 9. I love to learn and that is why am passionate about my job as a teacher, we never stop learning! 10. I am halfway through yet another list! 11. I love Chai tea. 12. I dont like my back rubbed, but ill rub yours. 13. I am ridiculously forgiving and unrealistically optimistic (as if you didnt know) 14. I am a huge science nerd. 15. I am fluent in Spanish, speak some French and understand everything i hear in Portuguese when my father and other relatives speak to me but cant answer in Portuguese and will try to one day! 16. I am hoping my only sister has a baby, but never told her that. 17. I was a huge tomboy as a kid to the point where i wore boys underwear and have never owned a Barbie...my girlie girl daughter is a precious and patient dear with me. 18. My son is ruthlessly independent and looks forward to the future, never living in the moment...i was the same and hope he will just be a kid like i never was. 19. I am brave and hate asking for help...but my friend @jengiebean has helped me discover even more courage and makes it easier to ask (well, she usually offers so i dont have to bc she knows i wont!) 20. This is not bullsh!t...i really LOVE you guys and wish i could clone myself just to give more and more, whether you want me or not!!!!

Unfortunately, my idea for this tag is not only mine...but i really think @grime_scene_investigators needs a tag for all of those grimy hooks we have. So, in a quest to make this a valid tag, i am asking you tag your grimy or rusty hooks to #hookerlooker so we can start featuring these beauties!

Please excuse this interruption of my flow of new tags for my page @grime_scene_investigators as i observe the International Day of Peace. I took this photo while one of my awesome exploring buddies @kristin_raysak stood guard (i took off that shirt to hang on the wire hangers that just sat beckoning my anal personality to hang something on them in this Detroit abandonment ) but...i have a wish for the world.
.
"Peace is the promise I make today
There's nothing greater for me to say
Than to lay down my fears
Lay down unhappiness
And surrender to
The peace I choose today
Peace is the gift that I give today
No easy shortcut, Peace is the way
I will lay down my pride
Lay down self-righteousness
And surrender to
The peace I choose today
My all, I give My love for all
Peace is the reason we're here today
No accident, we've been by name
Called to lay down our lives
Stand up for greater good
And surrender to the peace we choose today
Peace, we choose - today
Peace, we bring - today
Peace, we live oh-today
Peace today"

"You were my sun
You were my earth
But you didn't know all the ways I loved you, no
So you took a chance
And made other plans
But I bet you didn't think that they would come crashing down, no
You don't have to say, what you did,
I already know, I found out from him
Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be
And don't it make you sad about it
You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me, all alone
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me, on the phone
Girl I refuse, you must have me confused
With some other guy
Your bridges were burned, and now it's your turn
To cry, cry me a river
Cry me a river-er
Cry me a river
Cry me a river-er, yea yea
I know that they say
That somethings are better left unsaid
It wasn't like you only talked to him and you know it
(Don't act like you don't know it)
All of these things people told me
Keep messing with my head
(Messing with my head)
You should've picked honesty
Then you may not have blown it
(Yea..)
You don't have to say, what you did,
(Don't have to say, what you did)
I already know, I found out from him
(I already know, uh)
Now there's just no chance, for you and me, there'll never be
(No chance, you and me)
And don't it make you sad about it
You told me you loved me
Why did you leave me, all alone
(All alone)
Now you tell me you need me
When you call me, on the phone
(When you call me on the phone)
Girl I refuse, you must have me confused
With some other guy
(I'm not like them baby)
Your bridges were burned, and now it's your turn
(It's your turn)
To cry, cry me a river
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river-er
(Go on and just)
Cry me a river
(Baby go on and just)
Cry me a river-er, yea yea
Oh
(Oh)
The damage is done
So I guess I be leaving

meliromero NO NEED TO COMMENT!
I posted this yesterday and when I posted my second photo it deleted. Let's try this again!

ɠཞᵃʈⅈϮµժє time

I would like to thank all of you for your well wishes during my break. As previously stated, it was not my intention to be away, but sometimes when you move to a new home and city, a new school, a new job and everything that goes along with the change unforeseen glitches happen. We definitely had our share but tackled them one by one. I have caught up on most of your comments with my replies except for my last post which is very overwhelming. I have read all of them.
I would also like to thank the following pages, several which featured me during my absence, for the recognition and celebration of my photos! You truly humble me @pocket_family

"Cold, gray-blue steel underfoot
I walk a new set of tracks
Towards a pale moon
That is as full as my heart.
Grateful to those
Who patiently wait
To walk beside me
And keep me in their hearts
And on their lips." ~Ɱعℓı #railmarkable

Many of you have asked if I am okay and wondered where i am. I am still around but did not announce that I would be taking a break because that is not my intention. I have been "popping in" to like and comment daily and I have been taking care of the pages and hubs that I run on a daily basis, some of those with the help of my Wondertwin and dear friend @jengiebean . This is a photo of my stairwell in my home that i moved from this past weekend (with an edit). My personal account i hope to post on as soon as i catch a breath. I really appreciate you noticing. ️ If interested, here is what i have been up to: (see comment section)
