hell in a handbasket
yeah- i don't know what it means either- but apparently, this is what it looks like. as i have been making the rounds to fellow bloggers, i have come across the song 'life is a lemon and i want my money back' amongst the page after page of well, hell. there are many folks out there with health issues of their own; folks whose loved ones are ill; folks who have lost family through death, deployment, or dumbassery; folks who don't have much money or who have mental health issues- on top of the horrible world news out there no matter where you look. the news seems to be absolutely exploding everywhere- and the whole planet is going up in flames. where is the sanity? are there any sane moments out there? how does one get relief enough to rest to go back into the fray? checking out and cocooning only works for a short time- and if you check out completely- well, you have probably checked out completely. i have absolutely no words of consolation. i have no idea what to say. of course, i never know what to say when someone dies. i'm sorry doesn't seem appropriate and neither does 'damn! that sucks!' so, here i am. anyone??
