It’s Tuesday but it feels like a Sunday morning coming down. My brain must be lagging behind. Too much stuff to process. What’s happening to me, to us, to the universe?
- 26 people killed in a Texas shooting during a church service. The town had a population of 400.
- The Paradise Papers surfaced.
These are the 2 recent world events that I’m trying to grapple with. Less than 2 months before there was the shooting in Las Vegas where 58 people were killed. On Oct. 31 the truck attack in New York killed 8 people. Is it any wonder that my brain is stalled? It is a good mechanism. I don’t/can’t understand such atrocities of the killers. As to the greed and duplicity of the mega rich, I don’t want to understand. And how can the government say one thing and do another? Even the Queen is not exempt from greed and tax evasion. Then there’s Bono, Madonna….I don’t want to hear any more names. Are there no heroes or heroines anymore? And where is love?
My brain is putt putting this morning. It’s not depressed. It’s just a tad stalled. The sun is glorious, the air cool and crisp. We are happy and snug. I still feel hopeful despite everything out there. I will focus more locally – just within my vision. I cast about too much, distressing my self, losing precious energy. I guess I will have to get into my phone booth and do a costume change. I will be my own heroine and do the right things.

We wake up, put one foot forward and pray that this day will be better, brighter and hopeful. We are living in very scary times. I try not to, but do worry about the future for my grandchildren. The only control I have is to be a positive influence and role model!!!! May I borrow your Superwoman costume???😂😂
You can, Terry but you have to find your own phone booth. They’re harder to find now. ❤
Lily, I find many current events disturbing, but like you, I am going to try to do the right thing, which I think would be to try living my life to the fullest. I’m not going to hide my head in the sand, but I’m not going to let the insanity drive me crazy too!
I think that’s the best antidote to everything to all that is happening. I do still watch the news, distressing as it can be. I feel we need to bear witness to how some of our fellow human beings are living and suffering.
I’ve read a bit of your writing and enjoyed your thinking. You write very well. Thank you for visiting.
Lily, thanks so much for the nice compliment, and also for visiting my site. I’m a fairly new follower, but I’ve enjoyed all the posts I’ve read. I understand your current struggle; I think a lot of us have the same issues with all the technology at our fingertips. I’m looking forward to reading more.
