Oh! Sweet Pain!
As I surveyed the result of yesterday’s intensive clearing, I believe I’ve accomplished what could have been a week’s slow and protracted chore in one day. I think I deserve a long episode of rest and relaxation today.
How time flies!
It was like yesterday that we were greeting one another a Happy New Year but then here we are in the middle of May. I am not sure if time speeds up nowadays or our lives whizzes through a time warp.
In the eighties, before the technological advances rearranged the future, we kept to ourselves domestically. If ever there were global events that necessitated our attention, we were slow to react until weeks later.
Today, as I read blogs, I could not imagine myself going back to the past when information came in trickles especially in a Third World country. Like a sponge, I want to absorb as much data as humanly possible. Of course, I mean relevant data.
I am not really a choosy reader. Whatever comes, I check out and decide its importance later. I often look for connections in different places. (Nope, not those places you might think.) I believe some issues are intertwined even though they appear far away from one another.
Like to have an example? Check these words: dollar, climate change, fossil fuel, mining, unemployment, debt, poverty, war, terrorism, religion, deforestation, civil rights, democracy, socialism, world economy. The words on the list could go on and on.
What is the common denominator?
My answer: agenda
If ever we could unify ourselves with one common agenda, what could it be?
