Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

A Serious Moment

Last month my euphemistic phrase "that horrible mess Over There" only meant Iraq.

We've all seen or heard the news, we all know things have gotten worse and we all have opinions and beliefs. One of mine is "we are all HUMANS first." On an immediate note I am stricken by the terrible waste of human life as well as resources and accomplishment in the form of buildings and infrastructure. On a more esoteric note I am saddened that despite this many millenia of living together on the planet we still haven't managed to get better conflict resolution in place and work as an entire species to do things--we all need dreams and that's one of mine.

In any case too many people are dying and having their lives irrevocably changed. I'm not a prayerful person at all but I do think there are balancing forces in the Universe so I urge you to make some extra deposits in the Bank of Good Karma as you go through your week.

It can't hurt.
