Loud


Does the world seem louder to you these days?  It certainly does 
to me. Although I want to stay up on current events, just in case, 
by some miracle, the powers that be have something worthwhile to 
say.  I try not to watch too much of the news.  It's awfully easy 
to get sucked into the sink hole that is our nightly new these 
days.  

I find myself wanting to escape it all.  I'm sure that I'm not the 
only one that feels this way.  The world has become more complex, 
crowded, dirtier, and louder than ever before and I wish to close 
it off, turn it off, at least for a little while.  

I feel bombarded each day with one more thing, and one more thing, 
and one more thing.  Don't you? 

My mom used to say "The world's gone to Hell in a hand basket."  
Now, I don't know why there had to be a hand basket involved, 
but she would not believe what our world has come to.  

I do plan on taking the 1st week of September off work. IF I 
can hold out that long.  So I need to work on a creative way 
to have a Staycation. 

I hope that the rest of you are fairing well.  I guess I just 
needed to rant.  

Be well and stay safe, My Friends. 

Thank you for joining me on this journey.
