The Smell

 Throughout my time in this world one of the constants has been certainty of the future. Not certain what that future might turn out to be, of course, but rather it would simply come to be. The world and the societies that mankind has constructed and nurtured would still exist in a decade or a millennia or tomorrow. That certainty is gone. It has been replaced by something akin to a foul stench. 

The world now seems to be rolling towards its' finality. I'm pretty sure the earth will remain but the great human civilization will be wiped out and the remnants will be left to start over. The madness of this reality is growing exponentially. People as a collective seem to have lost their minds. This is not my singular observation, everyone feels it. When Agent Smith is talking to Morpheus and says the thing that he hates the most is the smell...I get it.

We can light little candles ,like watching a movie or listen to some music, but behind the cover up the stink persists'. We can only distract ourselves and even then we know the smell will be there when the credits roll. Fight off the crazy as long as you can but in the end crazy is what's gonna bring the whole experiment crashing down.

Politics As Usual

 I will not pick a side. As it stands we have a "projected winner" and accusations of fraud. This is what the people pulling the strings want, more division. For 4 years we have seen divisiveness like never before. So many angles, sides, truths and opinions based on headlines, blurbs and memes.

 Know this: when the civil war, revolution, or whatever you want to call it, starts we will certainly tear each other apart. And guess where your political candidate will be...? They will be with their puppeteers sitting in their ivory towers having a good laugh.

 This is where hate has gotten us. It has brought us to the brink of annihilation. Not hate from one side or the other. Just hate. I choose not to. I choose to do my best to love everyone and even though that may sound like a trite platitude I'm gonna hang on to it and brace myself for the turbulence ahead.
