Oh no! I’m not man’s property

flowers-girl-hair-butterfly-wind

This blog is dedicated to freeing up our masculine language. Woman does not have self identity because her word is attached to man.

Oh no! She is the property of his word.

Female is a totally unacceptable word. Don’t need the male part. Feme solves this problem. Human is exclusively a man’s word. Can’t you think of something better? Women are lacking independence from the word “men”.

It’s time to obtain our self-respect and dignity.

The United States Declaration of Independence fails to include all people, only men. Yuck!

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all “men” are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

This has been called “one of the best-known sentences in the English language”, containing “the most potent and consequential words in American history”.

United States of America is a male dominated, sexist culture and it’s not the only one. The word “equality” does not appear anywhere in the United States Constitution.

These historical documents are non inclusive, sexist and blatantly wrong. Girls are not guys. You gals are being misspelled. Please don’t underestimate the power of words.

Flowers are a big part of my life and I like to include everyone in writing.

Wish to express my gratitude

girl-party-dress-flowers-hat

I’m sitting quietly at home on a pleasant morning and thoughts are of lovely friends. I commenced this blog twenty-one months ago and wish to express my gratitude. I’ve received so much joy from being part of the WordPress community. Oh! It hasn’t been without occasional frustration but still an adventure worth embarking upon.

Gender equality is a subject I’m passionate about and I will continue to research and write for years to come. Don’t think I’ll ever run out of ideas for new articles. Vef can seem like an absurd word however it has expanded my knowledge of language.

This week I’ve completed moving from one WordPress account to another. I know everything on page looks the same but underneath it’s all different. The only noticeable change is missing likes on posts as they don’t migrate when a blog is moved. During this process I had lots of help from happiness engineers. It’s complicated and I’d much rather write poetry than learn computer code. I’ll get busy on a poem tomorrow.

I’d like to thank followers who continue to encourage me to keep going with my book. I smile within at every comment on Vef’s posts. I’ve met some beautiful people during my online time here @ WP.com

So overall it’s an amazing creative writing experience.

Thanks for reading .. Haha!

Would I lie to you? Oh no!

pink-creamy-white-flower-green-leaves

Would I lie to you? Okay so let me explain! Vef might not be suitable to include in English language or any other language. However philosophy of this word opens my eyes to many incredible things. I often practice typing/reading vef in a sentence and I’m the first to admit that it doesn’t make a lot of sense. Well not always. Sometimes it’s easy to distinguish and makes good sense. If I juggle around the words I’m using and place them in correct order it works. Oh no, I most definitely wouldn’t lie to you baby. Ha!Ha!

Why do I enjoy solitude?

red-hair-exquisite-girl-beauty

Hello friend,
I often ask myself why do I enjoy solitude? Oh! I’ve tried for so long to squeeze another blog post out of my crazy mind. Sometimes I get serious writer’s block and the words just don’t flow easily. I’m a blogger and writer so I enjoy a solitary lifestyle. How about you? Do artists, composers and writers need solitude to create their works, or are we just eccentric and lonely people?

As usual I’m at home alone on this rainy Monday evening in my small apartment, enjoying an alcoholic beverage and listening to music. Dinner is eaten so now I’m sitting in front of computer and blogging. It’s not that I’m anti-social, quite the reverse. I like other people but I feel uncomfortable in close social situations. Recently I moved to a new suburb of my big city to be among a mix of different cultures. It’s easier for me to feel at ease in a multi-cultural place. My neighbours are from such diverse countries as Ethiopia, Greece, India, Pakistan and Vietnam. I get along well with all of them.

Solitude
1 : the quality or state of being alone or remote from others in society.
2 : a lonely place (as a desert)

Solitude is the state of being alone without being lonely and can lead to self-awareness. Solitude is something you choose..

Perhaps I suffer from a mental health condition which is known as: Schizoid personality disorder (SPD) is a personality disorder characterized by a lack of interest in social relationships, a tendency towards a solitary lifestyle.

Lately I’m unsure of many things including the role of feminism in our world. That’s something I’ll ponder on for a while longer.

Is it time to get out and about? Should I become more socially engaged? Wish you a good life.

Okay I’ll get back to my quiet space again, Vef <3

This is a supremely beautiful word

gorgeous-hair-vef-pic-beauty

Dear Reader,
I’ll keep this brief and to the point as I’m not sure if anyone is online at this darkest time of night. Sitting in front of computer and perhaps I’m all alone by myself and wouldn’t that be so tragic. Oh! It looks eerie outside as thick fog envelopes trees and that’s a lot of e’s mixed in with several t’s. Blah! I just wrote that sentence because I’m bored. Ha!Ha!

Okay! On I go with typing as it makes me feel a lot better. I’ve always been too hasty when posting and often go back to do revisions. These waking hours I simply think and ponder on a gorgeous word. Can you guess? Vef is a supremely beautiful word originating from a celestial place (Venus) and that’s reason I’m writing a blog. I hope you enjoy a change of username, it’s certainly more attractive than before.

I’d like to thank everybody who came to visit and especially for the nice comments. I’m not doing much on the holidays. However it’s good to go walking in my local park and stroll down by the river where city sights are amazing. Promise I shall return soon better than ever. So now let the party begin.

Happy New Year 2015

Vef <3

Song lyrics to melt a girl’s heart

girl-asleep-flowers-cake

I’m giving a lot of thought to the issue of social justice and how it relates to gender equality. Girls are a long way behind boys in some countries. In fact many girls never go to school or earn a descent living. Can a gorgeous word ~ Vef ~ put them in front or not?

Perhaps I’m overly infatuated with the letter f .. Haha! I write and post articles on this blog to educate myself about how language can help solve the problem. I’m always reading books and finding unusual words.

So it’s wee small hours of the night and I’ve been hard at work trying to get everything organized before going to sleep. Listening to music is one of my greatest pleasures and I often dig out old classics. Wow! These song lyrics by The Cranberries are sure to melt a girl’s heart and they go like this.

Linger

If you, if you could return, don’t let it burn, don’t let it fade.

I’m sure I’m not being rude, but it’s just your attitude,
It’s tearing me apart, It’s ruining everything.

I swore, I swore I would be true, and honey, so did you.
So why were you holding her hand? Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the time? Was it just a game to you?

But I’m in so deep. You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Oh, I thought the world of you.
I thought nothing could go wrong,
But I was wrong. I was wrong.
If you, if you could get by, trying not to lie,
Things wouldn’t be so confused and I wouldn’t feel so used,
But you always really knew, I just wanna be with you.

But I’m in so deep. You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

You know I’m such a fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it linger?

Song is from the Album – Everybody else is doing it so why can’t we (1992).

She’s up above the world so high

twinkle-star-girl-moon-sky

I’ve returned and happy to be posting on blog after a long break. I’m in the mood for a song and what better way is there to uplift my spirits. I observe Venus high up in the sky at this time of year.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are

When the blazing sun is gone,
When there’s nothing she shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are

In the dark blue sky so deep
Through my curtains often peep
For you never close your eyes
Til the morning sun does rise
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are.

So this nursery rhyme was originally a poem written by English poet and novelist Jane Taylor (1783-1824) in 1806 at the age of 23. Apparently it is sung to the tune of the French melody “Ah! vous dirais-je, Maman”, which was published in 1761 and later arranged by Mozart for a famous set of variations. You can watch a video clip of it here: Rhymes for the Nursery

Oh and I’ve made a small alteration to these lyrics and changed ‘he to she’ as is proper with gender equality. I get so annoyed when everything in this world seems to be about him and not her.

Grrr!

Blog is moving: So please follow

beauty-flowers-painting

Well after months of pondering I’ve decided to combine my WordPress blogs into one website. It hasn’t been easy to make this choice as I love both of these blogs and their personal written content. What I am going to do is this. In an hour or two I will buy site re-direct and give it a go.

Oh! It’s a lot of work but I’m ready to give this a good try. My other blog is taking shape and I can easily move pictures and words. Many of you already follow both blogs and I’m sure it will be for the best if I only have one blog to manage in future. Can I now say thanks to everyone one of you, this is a wonderful trip and the journey is not yet over.

I’ve enjoyed the many comments and likes. I’m making a list of all blogs that follow this blog and will be following them back shortly. I recently upgraded to a premium theme and last month Trademark approval was granted. I’d be wise to integrate my limited time and resources in the one place. It will be a true delight in anyone’s language to see you over at my other blog when the move is complete or even before.
