Merry Christmas to all my readers. May your 2021 be even better than your 2020.
The People’s Blog will be taking a break until the new year.
This year has been tough for a lot of us. Two things are driving us all bananas:
1. Our rulers and countrymen doing stupid things.
2. Hearing about this stupidity all the bloody time.
We can’t do much about the first but perhaps we can take action on the second.
My New Year’s resolution is to consume less media and spend more time offline.
The blog will continue as per usual, including the Dark Side, but I will not be as involved in following the minutiae of news and current events.
I’ve had a gutful.
Out in the real world, things are okay. Birds are singing, fish are swimming, dogs are frolicking and, where I am, the sun is shining.
Don’t let all this nonsense get you down. There’s no need to follow or comment upon every new insanity. In a time of madness, look to your own inner resources and the beauty of nature to get you through.
We don’t have to give everything our equal attention. Walking down the street, we are free to look away from a pile of rubbish and gaze instead upon the tops of swaying coconut palms against the azure sky.
In the same way, we can turn our eyes from the ugliness of decline and see instead the beauty of the world.
Have a good break and hopefully I’ll see you on the other side.
