New Era…

As we approach the ending of 2019 and move into 2020, I am feeling somewhat overwhelmed by all of the changes, yet I’m still holding on to the old ways… I grew up before all the so called “normalcy” of this era; before social media was a thing, when it wasn’t so dangerous to play outside until dark, and when neighbors looked out for one another. There’s so many things that have changed over the years and some of them have just proven how out of touch we are with each other…Any time books are replaced with electronic gadgets, that can’t be good. We don’t read anymore, we look to internet gurus instead of opening our eyes to see what’s going on right up under our noses. When will enough be enough? We don’t tap into our inner reserves anymore, we don’t believe in anything we can’t see on a screen, and we don’t listen to our children enough. We are just wide open in this world of delusions and it’s scary as hell. I’m not thinking all will be horrible in 2020, I’m honestly thankful to still be here in this realm; living and breathing. But it does bother me, the level that humanity has stooped to…it’s just an uncomfortable reality that we can look up anything on the internet yet we can’t even look out for each other anymore…
