Atomic…. A modern nuclear bomb explosion in the desert.

I am battling with a few issues in my life at the moment.

Of course, this worldwide pandemic nonsense is not making any of these issues easier to digest, in fact, it has a direct negative impact on my ability to process it. I am not going to spell those ‘issues’ out for you, because that is not the important point here.

The point is, I am finding things difficult at the moment. I have to figure out how to cope with it, how to sort it out, without going completely bonkers.

Also, I am making it sound a whole lot worse than it is, which is not my intention. I do go about my day normally, but I am conscious all the time of something niggling at the back of my head, in my heart, my being.

I know for a fact that once the powers that be decide that the only way forward for the world is to carry on as normal, half of this weight will drop off of me.

I know a lot of people do not feel the same way, which is fine, but I also know a heck of a lot of people actually do. You feel your way, I feel my way – we are individual human beings, each with our own mindset, and that is maybe part of the big problem…

Here is the funny thing – the positive cases go up, the ‘leaders’ close things down – the numbers go down. Then they open up again, the numbers go up again. They close down again. And on and on. So, are they going to do this open/close game into infinity?

And while they are doing this, our lives are in limbo. Our businesses go under. Our family ties suffer. Our minds are going into places it has never been before. The rebel in us comes out.

I foresee trouble in the future, because there will come a day that the people on the ground decide enough is enough – we want our lives back. This cannot go on indefinitely. It has gone on too long as it is. And like I said, you are more than welcome to disagree with me.

Full of nothingness…

Waterfall in the Du Toit’s Kloof Pass.

I am stumped. Totally and utterly stumped.

Once in a while, I have something specific I know I want to talk about here. Other times, I read a few blogs, I open the ‘write’ page, and I start writing something. Often, after a few words, it doesn’t work for me, and I delete everything. But something always comes up that I can go with.

The last few days – nothing. I’ve tried, and I’ve deleted. Tried again.

Now, surprise, surprise!, I’m writing about not being able to write. Writer’s block. I never thought that I would be able to say that!

How is it, in a world full of crap, stress, hatred, intolerance and much more, that I can find nothing to say?

I must confess though, that it is actually nothing new to me. I’ve mentioned before that I am an introvert, and all my life I’ve watched and listened a lot more than I talked and interacted. But I am thinking about things, so one would think that I have something to say and write about?

Eeeeeeek!! What does that say about me? Air head? Bubble Head? Please no…

I am tired of all the bickering going on. I am tired of all the uncertainty. I am tired of being told where to go and where not to go. I am tired…

Maybe my brain is too.

Until next time, blog friends, stay safe and sane. 🙂
