FOWC with Fandango — Before


It’s September 29, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “before.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

    Before you
    life was
    a black and white silent movie
    it’s all colour movement and music

      Thanks. I didn’t know you cared that much about me. I like you, too.

    Before I forget
    I’ll write four lines here
    To show I’ve not left you
    And that I’m still here

    Ain’t I nice ……

    God has been in the beginning before the earth received it’s form.

    He is God from everlasting and will remain God to eternity.

    Will the report come out before — or after — the midterm elections? How related is it to the topic of this book (or topic)? This group is one of the reasons I was cut off from a Christian blog site. (That is… the owner of the blog said he was Christian but didn’t seem to comprehend what “Jesus” might really or historically be about [if he, the center of conversation in Christianity even if not at the blog (except tangentially from time to time back then) in that Paul isn’t/wasn’t and commentators on Paul aren’t Jesus, was a person and not a concocted religion to establish and rule by political conventionality in Jesus’ absence].) He did eventually say he wasn’t really sure of his state of faith.

    What he was sure if, though, was that he should pass along communiques from this sort of person (the founder of Proud Boys). He talked about Civil War (couched as if people other than friends of the Proud Boys were really the ones who wanted war). He defended what the gang did in the street. He was a useful idiot (to use an old term rather in preference to my coining a new one); OR he knew what he was doing. He, additionally, downplayed women’s voices — the more public and consequential the more to downplay (with an exception for infamous voices playing along or in useful positions of leading the unsuspecting by the nose — same for gay men until they weren’t as useful).

      Wow. I really coulda’ done a better job of editing that (along the line of typos, spelling as well as including doing some punctuation differently even more, and beyond).

      … Bill Gates Just Predicted WHAT?

      {You might want to be prepared to skip a self ad, 7:30 to 8:20.}

      Gates says polarization is leading to civil war — but how has he contributed to this, and are he and other rich elites benefiting from it?
