Lost and Found in Blogosphere

' Life is like an ocean voyage

and our bodies are the ships,

and without a moral compass

we would all be cast adrift.'

I listened to the lyrics

from Tim Minchin's song

and I knew I need to keep

blogging and hubbing on.


Blogging and hubbing

gives me,

gives you,

gives voice to millions.

It enables us to spread

our presence

across the world.


Write when you are inspired,

read about what you want to know,

about other people,

their thoughts, their passions

and anxieties

provide you with opportunity

to explore something more...

new kinds of conversation

that can offer healing,

wisdom of learning,

new ideas out there,

when we receive it,

we translate it

to our own world.


Prejudice, love and hate,

brain sex,

loneliness,

trying to break free,

out of the traditional mould society.

Longing of moderate people

to climb the social ladder,

to see themselves powerful,

when it comes to their own roles

and sexuality.


We read, we comment, we understand...

We find something we want to share...

We uncover hidden elements

of our common humanity.

Experiences of others

resonates in us,

in a way,

we would never anticipate.


We yearn for a glimpse of better world,

while turning a blind eye

to pollution, overpopulation,

unfair distribution of wealth among people,

endangering life on earth.

Each of us has to decide,

what to do,

who will lead the way ?


I don't know the answers,

I just know we are wildly imperfect

and wildly authentic human race.

We need to find the way out,

each of us

went to blogging and hubbing,

because we have a passion,

about something worthwhile,

we want to share.

Seeing people,

seeing children

suffer

their pain remains

behind closed doors.


The blog and hub is my platform

for writing about their journey

down the corrugated road,

on and on.

Blogging and hubbing

has no limits and no end.


There are so many of them.

Australian appalling ignorance and prejudice

against war refugees,

homeless, desperate

Afghans, Iraqis and now Sri-Lankans

risking their lives on leaking boats

to reach the promised land.


I call a migration agent

my friend,

who can not sleep any more,

because of his guilt and self conscience.


He represented many of the last wave,

their applications to be recognised as refugees

refused.

Australia turned back on them.

" We should learn from past,"

he told me bitterly:

" A ship with 900 Jewish boat people

was turned away by the US

in 1939

and about 200 of them

went to the gas chambers."

The Refugees Convention

was drafted

to prevent

that happening again."

Why Australia,

my own country,

does not care?


There are so many others,

Australia was branded

an international disgrace

after an United Nations report

ranked it

as the nation with the widest life expectancy gap

between its indigenous and non indigenous people.

The gap is 20 years.

Why?

Because of crime, unemployment and poor health

in one of the whelthiest countries on earth.

" The loss of traditional culture

is to blame,"

my good friend,

Broome Aboriginal elder said:

" It's like a sickness, it slowly destroys our spirit, our body and our heart,

we talk about it but nothing happens,

because no one cares."

And there is so many more of them,

Australian appalling ignorance and prejudice

on mental health,

millions of homeless and desperate people,

with various mental disabilities.

I feel honoured to still have many of them as friends,

many are lost,

killed and beaten up

on the streets of Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

Suffering has no limits and no end.


' Life is like an ocean voyage

Blogging and hubbing

gives me,

gives voice to millions.

It enables us to spread

across the world.


Blogging and hubbing

is a way

to change our world

to change ourselves.

Write when you are inspired,

write about what you know,

hopefully,

people will return

to see,

what else you have to say.
