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?

Back To Life, Back To Reality

Tomorrow the holidays will be over for most folks. Some businesses observe New Years on Monday while others say it’s back to work. All the fun stuff is going away and we are going back into reality and that can suck. I suppose the best way to get back to regular routine is to just do regular routine. Get up, get ready, go to work, get home when your shift is done. The holidays haven’t had the same flair this year for some reason. Perhaps its the world situation that has creeped in with how 2016 was such a horrible year.

I have a 3-day weekend so I won’t be going back to work until Tuesday. Then I am taking Friday off because I need a bit of a break after a very tough late November through December at work.

So as real life begins to reestablish itself as the normal perhaps we can find time to have moments of holiday whenever we can. Have a good return to the office, wherever that might be.
