The Same Ole Clown Circus

Last February I decided to stop paying so much attention to the events unfolding outside the safe perimeter of my small corner here in Maine.  Life barely made sense here locally..... forget the madness in play out there in the Real World where an international Clown Circus was doing their best to force the planet in directions the masses probably would not like if they took the time to pay attention.

So I tuned out and turned my focus inward............. selfishly inward.  I would like to say I had some Eureka moments, but that just was not so.  I did slowly work myself into a healthier lifestyle and am currently in the next phase .......... trying to trust the medical profession again.  Personally and professionally, I am in a better place than this time last year.

Okay fine.  So what the Hell was the World doing in my absence?  I decided to check.  .............. Hmm ......... Guess I should not be surprised that nothing has changed.  Life continues to be an unnecessary struggle for most because of the material and spiritual greed of the few.  I see no positive movement from the clowns in charge.  Lifting up is just lip-service rhetoric to mollify while cronies empty the house into a van parked in the alley.

And yet I remain optimistic.  No matter how much we humans try to screw things up, somehow enough of us make it through to face another day.

My question is, is there a limit to how many screw ups we have left?

Keep it 'tween the ditches ...............................................

Nice to see a post here. I've been wondering where you had gone. Yes, we are in the midst of a crazy clown circus, this thing we call our election season. It would be a thing of unbelievable science fiction, if it weren't happening in our headlines everyday. My answer to your question is "yes, there is a limit." I don't want to be here when that limit is reached.
