I will admit I feel like I should be blogging about all the social, cultural, racial and biological unrest going on in our world right now.
It is not like it isn't on my mind. Often. Always.
Yet if I allow myself to spend too long soaking up current events, breaking news, stories of horror and grief and rage, I find myself devolving.
Becoming less me. Less human. Less of everything I need to be more of right now.
Not to say I don't understand it. I do. Oh I do.
As much as a white person like me can ever understand a black person's pain, or a homo sapiens like me can ever comprehend the hopelessness of a chimpanzee locked in a laboratory cage watching as the white-coated technician with the syringe heads down the hall in their direction.
This world is full of pain. It is full of inequity. It is full of wrenching questions that may never have adequate answers....at least in my lifetime.
