Sorry, no frivolous news today. No kinky pictures either. All is covered in a misty fog. My work-situation is changing once again. That shouldn't concern you at all, the details unimportant.
I still live for music and harmony though, that equilibrium you know. That sounds simple, but it is still a quest of never ending twist and turns.
As Australia rocks through the bits and peaces of natural devastations, the Middle East is going through other kind of changes. I can't fathom what it all means and where it all will end.
Perhaps I am totally naive that I request a halt of imperialistic ambitions, a stop of people controlling and punishing others because they are weaker or because they belong to a religion of this and that...
Perhaps I was never to say this: Give humans a chance and let the zombies and apes stay second this time around.
The problem is, as the mist evaporates, the fog is still arising.
Humans are the most pathetic forms of living tissue, completely unable to take care of themselves. It is hence they believe in God and in other phenomenal issues. That avenue might coheres a window of some kind of relief. A blessing to some, perhaps detrimental to others.
I am not an atheist, nor a gnostic. Those labels are irrelevant anyway because they are pure inventions of human intellect. They mean nothing.
I still believe (believe!) in some form of super-sensible being or reality that has a handle on things ... maybe. That might sound funny to you after all what I have said before; but belief is a risky avenue...
Didn't you know?
What is yours?

I've been trying to think through what my beliefs actually are for a while now. I like what you've written. I'm still thinking.

Although the path ahead remains very “bumpy"- with busts and booms reflective of poor policies, combined with containing conflicts and the recent tragic negative impact of escalating natural disasters I remain a tad more positive.
If you look back at any time on our brief history it was never particularly encouraging was it – the cruelty, squalor and bigotry of medieval times interrupted by spasmodic brief interludes of enlightenment. In a number of respects today with improved communications and growing awareness we are possibly in the best position ever to bring about better outcomes. In the next 40 years there will be a huge shift as poorer countries make giant strides and catch up to the west - particularly in Africa. Countries like China, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iraq, Mongolia, Nigeria, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam are likely to lead the way. The effect will be a huge transfer of power and resources which we are only just beginning to realize. North America's and Western Europe’s domination of world trade will fall away markedly to well below 20% as Asia’s share increases above 50%.
