3812 Long time

Friday, January 10, 2014

I hadn't realized I hadn't attempted a post in almost a month.  I've got a lot of notes saved up, so when I have time I guess I'll go through some of that, but not now.  It's late.

I've been kind of blah.  I read about that kid who was driving drunk and high and killed four people and then got off without so much as a slap on the wrist because he was rich and privileged and his parents had never taught him that one is responsible for one's own actions and actions have consequences.  His lawyer called it "affluenza".  (If you're not already familiar with the story, do an internet search for that word.)

Anyway, I thought of all the kids who go wrong because they had bad or uncaring parents who don't get second chances and who don't "suffer" from affluenza, just the opposite, and

something inside me broke.

It's like why even care?  Why bother?  I had several weeks of not caring about pretty much anything.  This whole damn society is going into the shit can, and nobody else seems to care.

I'm not over it yet.

This winter season has been especially depressing and despondent for me as well. I wonder if there is an energetic cause, as well as horrible events that just make it all seem worse.

Red, yes. Two right off - less light, and more exhaust particles in the air from heating systems. Some might consider unusual atmospheric pressure patterns a third. "The whole world is festering with unhappy souls" - that's bound to have an effect, but not seasonal. (I don't know enough about stuff happening beyond the immediate sphere, but it does seem like there's been more close comets and meteors fairly recently.)
