what kind of land are we living in?
i just shake my head in shame that the land we live in is so full of violence and hatred.
how can it be that the children~yes children, but not all of them, i know that there are decent ones out there~of this land can be growing into such hate filled creatures with no love or respect for anyone.
it wasnt like this when i was young, so why is it like this now?
how can they get away from it?
sometimes i wish i could turn back the time and go back to a harder, simpler time~or does this place just exist in my head? maybe it does~if it does then that is where i wish to go.
i have stopped watching the news now and i dont read newspapers~everyday it just bombards us with everything that is dreadful in our world and i have had enough.
i wish i had some land where i can draw my water, grow my crops, tend my chickens,make my clothes and have as little to do with society as possible, maybe then other communities the same will join to make a big, like minded village and the village will grow and spread and everyone will start to treat the land and each other with respect.
golly what a pipe dream, a fantasy, but where would we be without them?
maybe in having these thoughts the essence of them will spread and join with other similar thoughts and they will eventually influence the world.
i have had a good day essay wise, have written 7~yes 7! pages of it in draft so i am now taking a well earned rest.
i have also done something i wanted to do ages ago and never really got round to~i deactivated my account to a social network group. i originally set it up as some good friends and some family are on it and it was handy to message and send pictures etc; but what pain it turned into with contast requests, messages etc etc etc. so i stopped going on it and when i finally did check it the other day i found they now post up your listed e-mails rather than them being kept private. luckily i have not had any unwanted e-mails so decided now was the time to add it to my 'spring clean' and deactivated it.
oh it felt good!
i love my laptop, despite my wish to turn back time~its great to keep in touch with folk, and i have met some lovely folk via this blog, its good for research for my studies and 'finding' stuff. lets face it if i had not checked e-bay then i would not have my 'beast' sitting in the kitchen waiting for the day when i fire it up and start baking!
the telephone is another monster altogether~its an intrusion into my peace i really hate, in fact i hate it so much i refuse to answer it and only at a push will i even telephone folk. because of swampy's committments with a couple of camping groups it seems like it never stops ringing~last night i was ready to rip it from the wall and hurl it out the window.
~was i cross~
hmmm yes maybe a bit!
on that note todays rant is over...
