Every time I sit down to write a nice little story, another part of the world implodes and I am glued to CNN to the detriment of blog posting.
Debates, rescue plans, crime, and of course, the stock market. Wall Street vs Main Street. CEOs vs Employees. Recession vs Depression. Rescues vs Bailouts. I am trying to follow it all. I am trying to UNDERSTAND it all.
America used to be crammed with pioneers, adventurers, inventors. Nothing explained the American spirit better than the word “entrepreneur” did. Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained could have been our motto. Somewhere along the way, we lost that drive.
I find the stories endlessly captivating. I am thrilled by the level of involvement of the “people”. It is about time the average American is again paying attention to the world around them. The conversations I have with friends are involved. The conversations of strangers I overhear are invigorating and stimulating in their diversity.
As bad as it all is, with the worse still yet to come, I have my theories as to why. However, the causes are in the past and the future is starting to stir.
I am starting to stir.
I WILL vote in November.
I WILL invest more money in the stock market.
I WILL seek new adventures.
