Good morning or is it? I frankly am having a hard time lately with the constant bad news both here in the US and abroad. Between the horrific attacks in Germany, France, and Turkey just to name a few and the shootings here in the States I am wondering if a recipe, a compilation of Friday favorites or an anecdote of my recent travels seems trivial or even relevant.
How do we get up each day and "carry on" like the world is not going crazy? I am weary from all this violence, turmoil and unrest and feel sometimes as if it is never going to end.
I find it overwhelming to see countless stories about all of this violence. Today alone I read about the attack on the train in Germany, a knife attack on a mother and her two daughters in France and a story about the supposed torture of some of the people at the Bataclan theater in Paris and a police officer shot in Milwaukee.
I am also agitated that so many important things are going on in the world and yet the Kardashian/Swift feud seems to be front page news and if not that story then some other insipid stories about the day to day activities of these people. Really? Since when is gossip news?
I am just curious do you find yourself reading blogs during all of this turmoil to "escape" for a bit or when you read them do you find them trivial?
I have lots of drafts in my folder but whenever I get ready to publish a post I find myself second guessing if I should or not. I guess the reason that I keep posting and reading is because it is cathartic for me. A little respite from the evils and ills of the world.
Do you find yourself reading or posting more or less with all of the crazy things happening in the world? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Have a good day.
