I've always felt that it is very important for young students to learn how to express themselves in many ways. Over the last few years, I've worked with Devon on a number of extracurricular writing assignments and last December we started the writing assignment that has led to the creation of this book!!!! Please enjoy!

Are you sick and tired of all the nonsense surrounding the anti-mask/freedom rallies?? Me too! It boggles my mind that such simple concepts cannot be understood by this small handful of the population. Just the other day, I thought that instead of sharing valuable information to Covidiot posts on Facebook and other social media platforms.... that just gets ignored anyway, that I'd try a new approach! I wrote this poem!!! In just the last few days, I've actually shared this around 15 times - that's how many ignorant comments I've seen in this short time! This poem has received many 'likes' and I always encourage people to steal my poem for their own personal use... as I am doing here! Simply cut'n'paste the poem onto a word document and save it in your files! Then share it, whenever you see an ignorant comment by an anti-masker/covidiot!!!! Enjoy....
Ode To The Covidiot
Covidiots are so smrt because they know the truth
With their cereal box medical degrees and perspectives so long in the tooth
They study so relentlessly, watching videos while taking a crap
Writing stories that they long to see published by ASCAP
Their rhetoric has become so moot, we all wish they’d just go away
Because it’s a criminal offense (I think) if we turned them into human fillets
They gather in groups and party all the time, waving banners that make no sense
Insulting nurses, dishonouring the dead, the limits to their ignorance is quite immense
They just don’t get it
Their minds are fogged
Their passion is ill directed
Do they not read the stories about their comrades in arms who were so quickly infected?
Rate of spread and long term effects are variables they can’t understand
They think it’s a world government conspiracy sweeping across the land
“No mask! No voice!” is the chant they often spit
But it’s not true
We’ve heard them too
We’ve just grown tired of their bullshit
Recently, a new 'news' publication has been circulation through Southern Ontario. It's called Druthers. Last week, I managed to get a copy and take a look! I was not disappointed with the amount of misinformation that I saw there! It's really sad, that the folks behind this are putting so much effort into these tales of woe, when they could actually be using this energy to help those who are struggling through this challenging time!
Publications such as this, are always spouting off about how their 'news' is better that mainstream media... so I find it ironic that they would publish something like this....
Do they not see the irony here????

Beginning of February
Magic Moment - Mid February
And then the work continued....
One day, I was sorting out puzzle pieces from a used puzzle I had just bought for $1.00 and I noticed something interesting! I called Devon over to show him and explain what I was going to work on next...
I showed Devon how some of the puzzle pieces I was sorting out, had two colours on them. The first ones I found had both yellow and white colours. I told him that we can glue these pieces to the art just as they are - we didn't need to separate the colours. So, we found areas where the sun's ray was touching an area where the cloud is and we glued them on!
The first few times we did this we were using yellow and white puzzle pieces... but, a short while later, we found some blue and white pieces, as well!!! I wonder if viewers of this art will ever notice this very small detail???
I mentioned earlier that I'm patiently waiting for this puzzle to get completed!!!! As soon as it's done I'll be able to get back into the sky part of the puzzle artwork! Hurry up, you two!!!!! LOL!!!!
For the last two weeks, Devon and I have been working very diligently on this art project!

This is where we left off...
From the end of May until the end of July, I found myself in a very negative situation!!! This situation was so oppressing that I decided to demonstrate to Devon and others, how important it is to make a stand against people who treat you poorly by creating a Youtube video to share the story! To date, all of my Youtube videos have been filled with positive and inspiring messages, so it was very different for me to create a video of protest! Devon helped me, quite a bit, and together we were able to share our story with a great many people! Please enjoy this video link.... it is a rather hilarious video....
I mentioned in my last entry that working on this art in a more systematic way should see the work getting done more quickly! And this proves it! Just a few days after my last entry, you can see that quite a bit of the grass area has been completed!
