I've had blogging writer's block lately. I'm not sure when I'll get back the urge to say things.
I've been really stressed out due to school, and that factors in a lot.
I think of posts all the time, and then fatalistically decide not to write them.
I'm mad about things like the plight of the Dann sisters in Nevada. (See this video if you like called Our Land, Our Life.) The Western Shoshone never gave up their lands.
I'm mad about American consumeristic complacency in general.
I'm mad about buffelgrass invasion of the Sonoran Desert.
Do we take action or do what we normally do - just passively adjust to the consequences?
I'm tired of business as usual. Things like the current mudflinging at Barack Obama about his supposed "spiritual mentor." The economy falling.
Did you ever see Cat on a Hot Tin Roof? Where Paul Newman is just sick from all the mendacity. That is what I feel like sometimes. If only we could be more inspired.
I just vacillate between futility sparking a call to action or a simple escape from reality.
Life now is just as bad as it ever was - in terms of justice. But we just let our world leaders continue to use up all of the earth's resources. Primarily to profit corporations. Things like pit mines burn me up. That and my conclusion that wealth now = poverty later.
What will remain for future generations? Why can't we all live in homes like this?
