There is a depression that comes with actually evaluating the state of affairs. As we get closer to elections, and friends and families begin to fray, more winters marked with scorching temperatures and numerous signs of the poor stewardship of our planets, as we continually as a society continue to focus on ourselves, rather than look out for our neighbors, it is difficult not to dispair. I pride myself in my propensity for “getting stuff done” alas, many of the problems we face seem overwhelming and irreparable, it appears the best approach is to bury one’s head in the sand and keep burrowing. The upside, someone unexpectedly bought me a cup of coffee the other day, and despite the chaos in life, all seemed well, my life experience for those 30 mins culminated in the experience and fact that there is good in this world. I think little acts of kindness carries more power than maybe the inevitable direction life is going… I think I’ll focus on those, I encourage you to do likewise.
