Aroused by Arête


Thanks so much for dropping by!
my photos, poems and opinions are meant to both
entertain and challenge
as my mission is to make people THINK!
I am passionate about ending to violence
at every level
and lessening my carbon footprint
want to know more then please read my posts?
Know that we are ONE
and that community and connection

strengthen our resilience and inner kindness
Meet the Blogger” is my other blog to introduce
a diverse range of the awesome writers!
Contemplation ignited my creativity …
Lack of tech skills evolved in my blog becoming ‘Aroused’
shortened from my intended “Aroused by Arete”
as we all need morality [arête]
to progress along our paths
Feel free to escape and recharge here
then leave your imprint in the form of
comments and likes
but NO awards thank you!

I love sunsets, beaches, birds and flowers!

    1. that is just an illusion of words Will … I had tried loads of words with kate to get my user name and it was the first after sooo many available … but I certainly strive to become more calm!

  6. I believe you and I have been floating around the blogosphere for the same amount of time, give or take a month. I share a lot of your views – the understanding that war doesn’t bring peace, concern for the carbon footprint, the belief that we are one. I’m glad I finally got to meet you.

  7. Hello Kate, I’m a domestic avoider too! reading your about page put what has been a difficult week this week into perspective for me. My car broke down and can’t be repaired. Over the last few months I had been thinking of using my bike to replace the convenience of a car, I love to cycle for pleasure and was not sure I could do it all the time, we live in the counrtryside and 7 miles from the nearest shop. Now it seems the universe is testing me or it feels that way, this morning I opened a notification for a speeding fine from April 14! I’m so glad you visited my blog which led me to yours. Thank you.

  8. You happened upon a post of mine and liked it…ergo my return the kindness clause is activated and I had to pop over and have a look at yours. Nice modus operandi, global citizen….I like that. It fits with my ethos that underneath the political angst people just want to get on. Blogging proves that too because I’ve made friends all over the world. Hope you don’t mind me following 🙃

  9. Opals are my birthstone…And well most personalities are a tad fractured, whilst still beautiful 🙂

    After looking at your piece for Andy… I’ll have to have a look around.
    I’m in South Easter, PA, USA.

    I do daily little poetic bits based on a book called Instant Karma at my short verse sit. WP changed a few things around – so I have links to other sites on all of my posts. Cheers.
