Today is a sunny day, just right for spilling words into it. When the chaos of the world overwhelms, as it does: Gaza, Israel, Ukraine, Latin America, and leaders try to set things right again: Pope Francis, President Obama, the unnamed peacemakers throughout this world, I feel whelmed over.
I am a political animal who enjoys writing poems and flash fiction, and a reader of murder mysteries and friends' poetry collections. I read the newspaper, internet news,watch msnbc, and on the car radio I prefer music stations to news.
Saying all this, today I need to sit beside Katie, the beagle-jackrussell, and let her bark her little heart away at all the noises in the neighborhood.
The churches are in trouble. The country is in trouble. The world is in trouble. So today I plan to ignore all the troubles, until I come up with a solution. Or resolution. My next blog will probably have more to read about.
