I've always been an obsessive news hound. Always.
But now...well, I just can't take it anymore. Its too...real, somehow. Too all-of-a-sudden.
Wars. Plague. Famine. Economopocalypse. Dead babies. Iran and Israel. Sabre-rattling. Japan plunges into deep Depression; rest of the developed world
to follow shortly. Record-setting drought. The government up to its neck in torture and murder. States, banks, and major companies functionally
bankrupt. And so on and so forth.
It's killing me. All of it. Its somehow eating my brain away.
I never thought I'd say this, but for the first time in over 30 years, I have stopped reading the news. At least for a while. Call me a coward, but I
need to step back and take a deep breath.
For the next few days, I'm only going to read about sacred geometry and Russian Icon painting.
