Elusive

Posted on 0

In response to todays  dailypost prompt  elusive,  this is my post. Not a more apt word could I have found for this post. I have been far too elusive of late, well as far as blogging goes I have.

I’m not really sure for the reason either. Have I had writers block? No, have I been ill? No, have I been on holiday? No. So why have I disregarded my regular keyboard dancing routine? To be honest, I’ve been well and truly cheesed orf . One of the reasons, is the current state of the world, the nonsensical killing on an almost daily basis of innocent people. I am so grateful I’m still here and appreciative of all that I have, I really am, but this ‘terror’ that seems to be taking hold is making me and I’m sure, every normal thinking human being by the scruff of the neck and giving us a good shaking!!

Another reason that seems to drag me down is the turmoil in our politics, both sides of the Atlantic. We have a Prime Minister that was never elected, and the U.S. is heading towards a President that……. well, it’s just not worth thinking about.

Common sense seems to have become elusive! No one has an answer anymore to the problems that the modern world is facing. Or do they? I know I don’t and it worries me. What’s happened to my sense of humour? Where’s it gone? Is this how the future will be? Sorry if I’m sounding down and joining in with the ‘glass half empty’ lobby, but there hasn’t been much good of anything lately to jump and shout about.

So, I’m back on the blogging trail and feel as though I’ve been let out of prison. I must get around to thinking more positively and look for the great and happy things in this world as opposed to the constant stream of depressive news that is churned out to us all. I’m sure I’m not alone and would love to hear how anyone copes with the sadness and indeed any tips to try to avoid it. On that note I shall bid you farewell and try my best to get back to the ‘glass half full’ lobby.

    First, I’m so glad to hear that you’re doing well. I was getting worried about not seeing any posts from you recently! Secondly, I can relate and agree with you on every level about the seemingly overwhelming chaos and craziness that’s going on in the world right now. Sadly too as each day goes by social media is pumping more and more wild and horrible stuff that’s impossible to avoid. And I usually spend a lot of time on all of the various social media platforms. Lately however, admittedly, I too have been staying away from social media and even the internet.
    I don’t have an answer for you, just sharing my empathy. I guess it comes back to re-focusing on the little things in life that do matter in our lives and not letting too much of this outside stuff invade our inner worlds. Who knows? 🙂

      Thank you Amanda, I so appreciate your kind words. It seems so difficult to avoid any mention of the evils that are happening in the world on a seemingly daily basis and perhaps it’s a little selfish of me to do so when there are so many suffering. I think you speak words of wisdom when you say getting back and re-focusing on the little things in life that matter to us. It’s refreshing to see what a great community there is in ‘blog world’, it has certainly helped pick me up. Thank you once again for your kind words and may peace and love come to the fore in this troubled world.

    Your post hits the nail right on the head. Why does the day-to-day business of this old world leave us all ragged around the edges. Leaves us feeling like we been rode hard all day and half the night, then put up wet. We now have far too many people working 24/7 to confound simple everyday life. When will they become desensitized to all the innocent blood shed? On the way back to their caves, I imagine!

    Why should we feel rotten over all the loonies causing problems? The news people want us to, sesationalism makes big bucks. I used to think people just didn’t care. Now I realize they don’t care, nobody really gives a hoot about anything. The masses have been disconnected from the news and current events for decades. The proof will be found in election booths. If the few who vote can find the polling places.

    There are still a few hold outs like me and Trev hanging on to our faith in humanity. Up until now we have been trying to keep up on this world, the leaders and government workings and the daily killings. I never dreamed I would see a time when so much, means absolutly nothing, to so many!

      Thank you, Leland. You talk a lot of sense and raise some good points. It’s good not to feel alone or isolated as I was begining to over these matters. Many thanks for your input, as always, very much appreciated.

    I found some very pleasant places to half fill my glass in Brum, Trev, though I know that’s not really the answer you wanted. Tempting to take to drink right now, though 🙁 I’m a bit head in the sand and trying to embrace the good things. Oh, oh- back with the mojitos again 🙂

    Trev, I totally understand your sentiments. I’ve been feeling so down with all that’s going on it’s been real tough that I wonder how those directly affected have to get on with their lives.

    I would like to invite you to my blog party which just started. Link is titled ‘it’s party time come right in.”
