There is so much noise right now – angry people about the healthcare bill, people complaining that the government doesn’t move fast enough to fix all of our problems, righteous politicians in California already battling it out on television for the gubernatorial race in NOVEMBER. This notion of instant gratification, fueled by high-speed internet and having everything immediately within reach is turning this country into a short fused and intolerant mob.
What happened to the virtue of patience?
These are the days when I want to pack up everything I own and move to a secluded cabin and retreat from everything. Live off the land as best I can and spend my mornings drinking tea on my porch watching the sky turn from dark to light.
