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.
