Getting Away From Reality

I really need to get away from cable news. The election is over and perhaps more fiction and news from regular people would do me some good.

Right now I am doing some pretty heavy reading for my religious studies class so I don’t have it in me for more reading. Blogs are an exception to that rule though.

However, I am binging some sci-fi, fantasy and a little juicy romance on some streaming services so there is some balance there. I also watch stuff on regular TV. I guess anything you can do to provide a diversion in the days we live in at the moment.

Realistic Reality

The value of guns and flags are unfortunately worth more than flesh and bone and souls in the minds of many. It’s a sad state of affairs when we put things up on a pedestal to worship them while at the same time reducing the value of human life in all its forms. Greed and hate and pollution are what seems to be ubiquitous whereas generosity, love and care and conservation are things hard to come by. The death of humanity seems to be at hand and what do we do about it? That is a huge question we all must answer. How can we value things that give joy, comfort, peace and giving instead of the opposite. Our world is in peril and as its passengers on this ship we have to find out how to get along before we get gone. Realistic reality is a hard thing to look at but it is something we must face. What do we do? What do we value most?
