Turning An Upside Down World, Right-Side Up

Green Sky and Blue Grass is a blog about turning an upside down world, right-side up.

To start the blog, here is a poem by William Blake-

Ah Sunflower

Ah Sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’s journey is done;

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!

William Blake

Overcoming Feelings Of Hopelessness

Recently reality came crashing into my life.  I was a victim of a Ponzi Scheme that has turned my world upside down. Similar to the Bernard Madoff Ponzi Scheme, only the villain behind my story is the, Victim Millenium Bank United Trust of Switzerland, who like Bernard Madoff made promises of high returns without ever investing any money.  When I was struck with the news that I was one of the 375 victims to this white collar crime, I suddenly found the lessons from my recently completed book, “The Sky Is Green and The Grass Is Blue“, resonating with new meaning and empowerment.

What I had written to help others, was now helping me overcome the most devastating financial event to ever hit my life. I’m not just talking about a problem, but something that is life changing. Something that held me still, ingraining a feeling that will be forever burned into my mind.
