Today I am grateful for bliss.
In the recent news there is fighting in most of the world and oh by the way we’re now dropping bombs in Iraq. . .again. Afghanistan is a mess. There are mud slides burying people, vehicles and homes; the weather is of biblical proportions all over the place. A race car driver mowed down another driver on the race course; another plane catches fire and has to abort take-off; people are arrested for killing their spouses and/or children; animals are being left in hot cars to boil to death; race riots are pulsing to break out in various parts of the country; veterans can’t catch a break; some rich idiot has gotten the brilliant idea to allow his cronies to purchase parks so we can further deface our world by mining the only pure spots left; the rich get richer; the poor get angrier; bridges and general infrastructure is crumbling; football has started and baseball will never end; the economy sucks; my economy sucks more; there are seven cases of rabies in my county; and it’s National S’mores Day. Really? We need a day dedicated to s’mores? I’m done. Just for today I’m done.
It is said that ignorance is bliss and today I am grateful for bliss. I’m taking a lesson from my sister and sticking my head in the sand. The weather is the only good news so I’m off to my happy place. . . with a book.
