“I Have Seen the Good and the Bad”
Robert De Niro in the movie “15 Minutes” said, “Sometimes you gotta go away in order to come back“. Actually I’m not back, I never went anywhere and I’m not at a loss for words. It’s the words I have floating around in my mind that are always negative. I realize that I’m not alone but I don’t like the way I feel about what is happening and I can’t stand what I write. Its like, its worse when I see on the page. I start writing about good things and it always comes out bad. I don’t like the way I have been feeling and I am tired of writing about the craziness in this country and around the world. The thing is, I am old enough to have seen the good and the bad. I have lived it. Now, its mostly all bad and out of control and because I have been there I know what the future holds. I feel its gone too far and I don’t think it can be repaired. I don’t think anybody wants to repair it. I am not going to offer any solutions or even say what the problems are. I guess I’m just going to watch. Its all I can do…I have to stop feeling bad and let it go but its not easy….
