the Current State of…the State


carnival 3

There have been numerous discussions on ‘the way of the world’ today!  Particularly, the United States.  The fear that sets heavy in my stomach in the morning when I rise?  At night, upon a not peaceful sleep?

I am brought back to the moment in time; when the focus had been on the Cold War.  The Vietnam war having just ended.  And, the, walking on egg shells, feeling, my parents displayed.  And, perhaps, not just them, but other Baby Boomers, as well.

“We are as forlorn as children lost in the wood. When you stand in front of me and look at me, what do you know of the griefs that are in me and what do I know of yours? And if I were to cast myself down before you and tell you, what more would you know about me that you know about Hell when someone tells you it is hot and dreadful?”
