I'm not one of nature's optimists, but these last couple of weeks have been worse than usual. The national political theater has become, if anything, farce. A double-dip recession seems likely. The Arab Spring is rotting on the vine.
I'm upset and distracted. Making plans is difficult and suffering fools almost impossible. I'm trying hard to not fall into selfish concerns and betraying my stated faith. I know I'm not the only person who's tetchy.
Feel free to comment if you need to vent.
