Thankfully I have several adorable photos to share this week to help distract from my pessimism.
Just like those old days when I loved to double down while playing blackjack in Las Vegas, I could double down on my pessimism this week, but, oh look, another adorable moment in nature.
Oh, this year it feels like there are dozens of topics instead of just a handful, let me choose a few from the pessimist deck of cards (inflation – corporate greed, COVID-19, women’s rights) but wait, maybe we better just look at another photo.
Let’s spin the pessimist roulette wheel (climate change, Trump candidates in 2022, unbelievable thought of Trump or DeSantis nominated in 2024, Tucker Carlson, gun control, equality, war…) – wait a minute, here’s another precious shot to save you from a rant or tossing all my chips.
A gorgeous sunrise should distract me from the depressing state of our social, political and world landscape, but all the upheaval is even showing up there.
I suppose I could try to be a little more optimistic for the youngsters,
but at my age I don’t gamble as much anymore and I’m beginning to think I have no idea how to communicate with almost all of the generations out there and I’m not about to join TikTok to figure it out.
