I love Bloom County. And this cartoon from the early 1980’s always resonates with me because its theme is how I feel most times when I look at the news of the world around me. I get depressed and dejected and have to go and recoup somewhere.
But increasingly I am asking myself what is really going on. And I want to know what’s behind the stories I see on social media, on other blogs, on TV. I want to ask questions. I want to answer questions from others or from myself.
I’m no expert on anything. I am just a middle aged woman who is learning how to navigate the world so as to leave behind something good.
So I am opening up my thinking space here. I am going to take myself up to the meadow with a cup of coffee. Its time to start understanding the world.
