A Word

When I started this blog, I thought I would have something to say, but I found I did not. Slowly but surely I found that I did. However, now that there is so much to talk about I find that I have nothing to say.

Perhaps it is due to the fact that so many people are talking that a single voice is lost amidst the noise.

Perhaps, due to the things that I have learnt, I now think a little differently that I did before.

Perhaps it is an evolution of conciousness ... or perhaps a evolution of thought.

I have become weary of the darkness in our world...and the excuses for it. I have become weary of the emptiness that has pervaded our everyday lives, and pointless ravings of so-called celebrity, of focus groups, of political correctness, of insularity.

I have become saddened by the loss of kindness, not just the love between soulmates, but the little things that make life easier. Where are the kind gestures that spoke of civility and community? Where is the life that makes it worth living?

I open the paper and read of savagery and other works of inhumanity across the world. I read of these acts in the name of religion, of communities, of hatred, hostility, of intolerance, of fear, of ignorance.

I turn on the television and see the aftermath of Death stalking the land.

I wonder where this will take our destruction...or to a better place, where people rediscover those things that make us better humans.

I wonder when people will rise above this, become enlightened, become generous and considerate again....or will we be doomed to failure?

How many generations must pay this price of blood before we find peace?

Long time no chat..

...but then again, I've been busy.'s been relatively busy yet quiet on the news front. Still Muslims slaughtering each other in Iraq and Afghanistan, and yet it's Ramadan at the moment. I suppose they will make it up afterwards.......

The Hamster survived a crash at silly speeds, and best wishes on a full recovery.

Europe beat the US once again at the Ryder Cup.

Oh, and Jack Straw gets it in the neck. I don't know about you, but the short bit of film that was on the news showing that group of covered up women protesting made me laugh. Why? Well....apart from the fact that they didn't appear to be women.... Yes, it looked like a group of blokes covered from top to bottom in womens clothes....and last time I checked, Muslims don't like that kind of thing very much. How did I know? many women do you know that can stride like that? Personally I don't know any.

What was with the Met pulling that Muslim policeman off Diplomatic duty? I thought the Police didn't have gender, or religion? Obviously more political bollocks. I'm sorry, if the guy can't do the job, then he shouldn't be in the Police.

Other than that...nothing much happening in the world of insanity...oh...apart from Eris....but that is par for the course...being as she is the Goddess of Discord.

Normal service will be resumed shortly.
