It's Been A While

Well, I lost my hard drive and along with it my password (all of my passwords) and the know how to get into the blog and it took so long to get everything back, all my enthusiasm went away for blogging anymore.

When I finally decided I needed to get back to a place to let the hot air out and tried to get back to blogging, they had changed the whole setup of how to access the site and so it took me another couple of weeks to sort that out. . . . .

So, I'm back. . . . .

Now what do I do? Hmm! I think I want to alert the world that the paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways , but narrower viewpoints. Racism and homophobia are rampant. Our society's appetite for waste is insatiable. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space, but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.
