MAYBE GOING BACK TO WORK

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 28, 2014, 5:28 PM
Skin by NorthBlue
Subject


I have a lawyer who I hired to sue my former employer from firing me from my job.  At the time I was fired I was still functioning well and getting the work done that needed done.  As soon as they heard I had PTSD they fired me.  My lawyer found a loophole called the FMLA or the Family Medical Leave Act.  This law was one passed in the 90's during the Clinton Era and what it does is protects the jobs of people who develop an illness which may require them missing time from work.  My lawyer says that I fall under that category and that I should be given my job back, or a better one.  Under the law, my pay has to be the same or better.  He just served them papers today which gives them the chance to hire me back, or stay the course and let me take them to court.  I am thinking they don't want to spend the money it would take to go to trial.  I am hoping that I can just go back to work, doing what I used to do and getting the same pay I did when I left.  God bless Bill Clinton and the FMLA.  While he works on that, I have knee surgery this Friday, which is outpatient and should be cleared for work one week after the surgery.  I am happy and hopeful for this, and I hope it works.  This is a good Lawyer I have, who has been working Pro Bono on my case.  He says he is doing this because he hates companies that fire people before getting their facts straight.  

There is no new news yet about my neighbor and their ghost.  I did buy them some sage and we burned some all around the house.  I will keep you filled in as time passes.  

I have some poetry to share this August, some of it is rough around the edges, but sometimes that makes a poem worth reading.  That is all I have for this week...

 My continued prayers to my friend Samira, Birgit, Dee, Chas, Selina, and Flori :pray:

To my friends and watchers I wish you a wonderful and prosperous week ahead... :icontimmy64plz:

POETRY CORNER

:iconseptemberskies2298:Tulips for You by KmyGraphic :iconseptemberskies2298:

ripe for the pickingJuice stained fingers clutch,
roll over pocked and pitted skin.
Pinch, twist, flick.
Leafy locks ruffled by tiny hands
which bruise the soft and supple skin
of he who has aged just enough.
wordless they succumbAnd they fell -
just like that.
Just like the act of breathing;
soundless and inevitable.
Like an eager girl slipping
straps from her shoulders,
they became
the soft crush of silk at her feet.
danse macabreIn the end they were all the same
they sat on whitewashed church steps,
toeing the ground in resignation,
hoping their furtive glances
to the left and to the right
would go unnoticed by
the stronger and more stable man
a few steps closer to the doors.
The flood of people became a trickle,
just a dribbling until
the last man -
somehow they knew he was the last
settled onto the lawn
and in unison the crowd rose.
There was no leader to the band, though
the closest was the beggar
who had expected this day
more than any other.
He was flanked by a lawyer,
a doctor and a thief.
They exchanged silent glances;
a new clarity reflected in ancient faces
as they lifted their heads together and
trudged on as one.
Here they gather,
scuff and shuffle;
lock eyes and make peace with equality.
.I thread myself
into your skin -
tell my aching heart
there's a bit of you
left in the dust
and dirt

Your fairy is called Oak Goblinwitchgreen dragon animated avatar by ftourini
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in forests of oak and lime trees.
She is only seen in the enchanted moment between sleep and waking.
She decorates herself with leaves and berries. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
