Today I am having lunch in the Garden of Contentment.
Gorgeous day. Pretty surroundings. Yet, a nearby leaf-blower brings balance and the reality that all is not always well with the world. Or, might it be?
What role is mine in deciding my happiness? Is ignorance bliss? When it comes to politics and government shutdowns and the deluge of news, opinion and talk in your face … maybe so. To ignore the issues of the day seems to admit a single voice does not matter. The demise gained momentum with C-SPAN. Once politicians were seen, all bets were off. Add vanity to power. Yikes. Can we ever return to simpler times? Alas, Babylon.
