Lately, I sometimes feel like I just dropped in from another planet. Every television commercial is a phone or some weird thing that I don't need. We are bombarded with weird people, scary events, strange behavior and we don't really have the tools to deal with it all, in my opinion. At least I don't. Even driving is scarier than it was. My brain just can't seem to sort it all out...too much input.
I wonder what our maximum capacity is? I see the opposite behaviors pretty regularly, though in less quantity. People reaching out to each other, people making time for each other, people doing kind things, trying to make a difference. There is a lot of goodness out there, we just don't celebrate it as much as a culture - scandals and titillation seem to sell more ad time.
I just wonder how much we can take before we just drop to the ground...some days, that moment feels closer than others.
