Life catches up with us and things get left behind. This blog for instance.
Much has changed since I walked away from this in 2012. Personal life changes have taken me to new paths I never imagined and of course the changes taking place in our national and global arenas of politics have taken twists and turns that none would have expected even a year ago.
Environmental discourse has reached stand offs while droughts and hurricanes continue to increase, mass shootings have become common place and the ability to have a simple discussion over differing opinions has nearly vanished. We stay at war and face the daily prospect of new wars.
The world is not the same as in 2012. It was far from perfect then with many of the same problems but they seem to now be escalated to a feverish pitch while hate has seemed to become the national past time.
Perhaps it’s time to start talking again. Not just of the bad but of the good as well. We are surrounded daily with amazing things taking place and we never hear of them in the sea of near insanity that we find ourselves in these days.
