Just forget about it

“Just forget about it.”

That seems to be the suggestion today.

“Stay off the news!”

“Watch a comedy!”

“Pretend all is right with the world!”

There have been a lot of issues swirling around us that I’ve been trying to pretend aren’t happening right now.

Burning cities.

Calls for blood and death on police.

Politicians who want us to believe “it was a peaceful protest” while we watch buildings burn.

Families broken.

Children abused.

Innocence lost.

“Forget about it.”

“Read a book.”

“Hug the kids.”

“Go on a walk.”

“Pet the kitten.”

“Nothing to see here.”

If only my brain would stop screaming me out of the peace I’m pretending I have.

I'm a mom, a wife, a writer, a photographer, and a former journalist. I write a little bit about a lot of things here on my blog. I enjoy John Wayne and Cary Grant movies, Jan Karon's books, and I have an eclectic taste in music. Welcome to my blog and feel free to poke around. Fridays are Fiction Fridays, where I share a piece of fiction I'm working on. I'm also the author of three books with a fourth on the way.

  1. I feel exactly the same! One minute, I am lulling myself with ‘unrelated’ little daily issues, then the next?! I’m feeling disconnected from the reality of life now, and even embarrassed, to be purposely busying myriad, with the ‘unrelated’ little daily issues!

    Everything is so confusing right now!


So, what do you think? Leave me a comment! I love to meet new people and chat with ones I already know!
