I’ve been a little quiet lately and “off my game”, feeling out of sorts and spending a lot of energy just trying not to get sucked into the vortex of darkness and doom…
It’s nothing I can put my finger on. It’s the overwhelming sense of being pummeled with bad news, destruction, lies and sheer madness. I cannot continue to believe what we see around us (and what /they/ continue to justify, excuse or simply bury if the other two options aren’t viable) is due to ineptitude. It’s too much, too often, too coincidental. But if it’s NOT ineptitude, what does THAT mean? Honestly, I can’t wrap my head around what is going on in the world right now. It appears to be a race to the bottom, and the good ol’ USA is leading the pack!
I made a promise to myself when I started this blog that I wouldn’t let it go down the path of doom and gloom, that I’d do my best to keep things positive or at least neutral. Since lately I didn’t think I could do that, I’ve simply been keeping my big yap shut. That being said, I figured I’d just share a few memes that struck a chord with me lately.
I’ll be back before long. Just gotta get out of my head for a bit (or maybe get fitted for a tin foil hat!?!). A book review is in the works, concerts on the horizon and other assorted stuff. No travel ’til Autumn due to tightly squeezed budgets, but it is almost surfing “season”, so if nothing else some beach time is right around the corner.
In the meantime, focus on food, water, shelter, medicinal needs, and a means of protection. The LAST thing anybody needs is to become reliant on this Clown Show commonly known as “government”. They do NOT have your best interests at heart. That is YOUR job.
Keep your chins up folks, sanity certainly MUST return at some point…
Well, a guy can dream, can’t he?
Thanks for stopping by!

Where’s Jim (Bison) Dakin when we need him? May the 5th, Boring Old Man, I’ll raise a glass to him.
Clearheadedness, cynicism, vulgarity and humor hiding a modest, decent and gentle man.
Keep up the good work.
Yes, I’ve been thinking of dear, departed Jim quite a lot lately, with all the madness that has been going on. If there was anyone that could make us laugh through the insanity, it was good ol’ Lord Bison! Hard to believe it’s been almost a year now… I still miss his insight and wit often! I’ve tried writing a “memorium” for him, but nothing seemed worthy of him. Perhaps it will finally coalesce at the anniversary of his premature departure.
