Is all this crap the Wheel of Life?

I get tired of problems, 
politics, 
and people. 
I really do. 
I plod on 
hoping for the best. 

Always hoping 
love will be enough. 

Do you think it is?  The world has gone crazy.

These are my jagged thoughts 
with the sharp points protruding.

When I can remember to open my eyes to see, I see beauty

  1. I feel the same way. And plodding is the perfect way to put it right now. I keep going but it's hard.

    1. The alternative is unacceptable, albeit seductive. Hey, I no longer have your blog on my feed. Are you okay?

    2. I'm fine. I had a very creepy anonymous comment that freaked me out. I will make it public again in the future but not right now. Thanks for caring.

  2. Thank you for writing this down. Now I won't have to. I could do a copy and paste, it so reflects how I feel at the moment.

    1. So many of us are tired of the BS right now.

  3. I think that is why an occasional escape is mandatory , This history we are living right now is absurd and horrendous, no doubt! We lose footing with every step, crab walking, sideways through the mire may be the only way to navigate.

    1. Great comment. "sideways through the mire may be the only way to navigate."

  4. I keep hoping things will stabilize soon. There are days I feel I can't cope with the craziness.

  5. Thank you for your heartfelt honest jagged thoughts with question.

    Based on my limited but convincing experience, not simply a nice theory, love is enough. And that's not an easy answer.

    Beautiful photo. I'm especially fond of rusted objects. The rusty wheel of life!

  6. Not sure if there is a wheel behind that life. All I know that we have to try and look out for each other and remember that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart all the time.

  7. This may sound harsh, but I don't think Love is enough, it never has been. It's something, it helps, but it is not enough. And I don't know if there is an enough.
    Buddha says that life is suffering with interspersed moments of peace and joy. I believe that, it's what makes those things stand out - I need to appreciate them more.

  8. Plodding is the current mode. Love or no, the reckoning will come.

  9. Sorry folks. I fell and broke my knee. I won’t be able to review and publish your comments for a few days. Will tell you all about it soon. All will be fine. Cheers!

  10. "I get tired of problems, politics, and people." I know what you mean. American politics has gone nuts, and politics here in Britain is also nuts (you may be aware of the Brexit fiasco). I think all we can do is try to brighten up our little corner of reality while hoping for a bit more sanity in the world outside.

  11. It's unlikely, and in any case risky, you could be put off for good. But it's just possible you might to respond favourably to the sight of a skilled mechanic dismantling (or assembling) a car gearbox, adding a monosyllabic word here and there to explain what's happening. Gearboxes have been around for a long time yet they can still be regarded as unsung evidence of human confidence and ingenuity. Positive things in this negative world. There'd be beauty in that for me although I'm well aware many would say it was not a girly thing. But you never know for certain. You'll notice I'm keeping this short.

  12. Still, I keep thinking of my parent's generation when the entire world was at war and what that must have felt like. I think the world must have always been crazy. What I find scariest is the people who knowingly enable the crazy.

    I try to balance the fear and weariness by always nourishing my soul with beauty.
