I rarely give myself over to despair; however, these past days I truly feel despair in the state of the world. I am not sure what I can do to improve my corner of it.
Bridget and Brenda have ups and downs, but, for the most part, they are optimists. They would disagree, but they are, truly, optimistic about the future of the Universe.
I'm having trouble with merely this planet.
I like to think of myself as a pragmatist. But, these past days, I have not even been able to be that. Is there such a thing as a desolationist?
Bridget feels optimistic again because the moon has turned to new. The moon could be cheese for all it has to do with me. Spread it on a cracker, open a nice cabernet, and we're done.
Hoping that I can find some hope,
