The Winds of Change
I wonder if I'm the only one who can feel them. I can sense the climate shifting and the atmosphere evolving. Can you feel it? Things are no longer the same and I believe they won't be ever again. Of course as time goes on, the culture must shift as well as individual paradigms to meet the changing needs of society. But I'm talking about something more than just culture shifts. This world is changing in a serious and somewhat psychotic way. People aren't showing the same amount of restraint and control in these times. Understand me, there are folks who are doing nutty things all the time. But this time around "normally normal" individuals are not only thinking crazy thoughts but are also acting upon them in all their fullness, hence the five to ten latest national news stories one of which happened less than half a mile from my home at my local hospital (anthrax hoax). Mass shootings, family disputes ending violently, family mass shootings, governments gone awry, real divorces and arrests over virtual people(Google Second Life divorce/arrests if you doubt). N.R.A., I'm so not feeling you right now. . . Anyway, feel free to comment if you agree or even if you disagree. I'd really like to know if anyone else's social/spiritual barometer is registering. . .
