PERSPECTIVE: the World Changes FAST & how to Cope
Let’s review the list of changes I never imagined to happen in my lifetime.
1-Earthquake in Chile caused the Earth to tilt on it’s axis
2-Tsumani in Japan caused us to lose a fraction of a nano-second on our day
(Actually, I get these first two very confused—but the results are true)
3-Total, instant, global communication
4-China is now the Global Economic Superpower
5-There is a black man in the White House.
6-Non-white births exceed white births in the USA
7-Marijuana decriminalization and legalization in some place in the USA.
8-Birth Control, Abortion and Rape are again on the National Agenda.
9-They changed the rules in Monopoly
10-Spock is in touch with his feelings.
So here we are. I, an extremely creative individual at age nearly 50 years old cognizant of the fact that these things have actually happened. I seek assistance from friends and professionals to help me find my place in all of it.
I can grasp that many are freaking out. Clinging to their religion and their guns.
I prefer meds, therapy and social media, but that’s just me.
I think I understand why my parents generation used alcohol and valium. AS fast as it seems my world has changed, they had WWI and WWII to cope with.
I REALLY DON’T WANT TO LIVE TO SEE WWIII.
