States of Mind
Desire, loss, hope and fear dominate my current routine. A milestone birthday looms and I appreciate how quickly the years rush by. The state of our world is an unrelenting news cycle of despair that underscores the here and now. Political refugees, famine, corruption, climate change and the constant awareness that greed is good- because isn't money the best signifier of one's worth?
Or is it the amount of friends on Facebook? Or likes on Instagram? Or views on a blog? Lately I'd gladly settle for some tender intimacies exchanged one on one in the privacy of a cozy spot without the need to document and generate buzz.
Either I am showing my age or my inability to ignore the events that surround me. Pick one.
