The calm before the storm.

My brain is a bit cloudy these days and it is leaving me challenged to be creative.  Well that and all I can hear in my mind is the theme song to wonder pets. “Wonder pets, wonder pets, save the day” And of course I hear it in my daughters voice as she chants it around the house. She also sings a nice little song I made up about lightning bugs and how their booties glow. Because there is nothing like a kid singing about bug booties glowing.

The dense fog of winter is settling in and has taken a hold of everything even my mind. But, how can one be expected to think when it is so damn hot in January. And for us in Louisiana so damn wet. The rain is relentless. Literally we are now under a national emergency for the entire state. When it rains for a week straight here, we are in feet and feet of water and it won’t go away. This is why I think there must be tons of people murdered and dumped in the bayou. With all this gator infested water everywhere, nobody will find you. Just don’t go driving around up to no good out in cajun country. You have been warned.

Sure, I could try and come up with something to jump start my mind, but ain’t nobody got time for that. Ok that was awful. Forgive me. Maybe I will just go get my pint of Ben and Jerry’s (that I really shouldn’t have bought since they donated money against the campaign in california to label genetically  modified food) And sit on the couch and watch a documentary about the life of Buddha and enjoy the mellow calm that comes with a clouded mind.

We all know there is always a calm before the storm.

Truthiness

With the growing online presence in this world, I find that more and more people make up shit. Sadly, masses of people simply take it for truth.

This is something I have a hard time understanding. Is it that as a culture we are simply too trusting? Or too lazy?  Why take the time to research the statistics people are quoting, and ask the hard questions; when it is so fast to just google it. Wikipedia says (lots of crap) , so therefor it must be true.

Do they ever think that if everyone claims to be stating truth yet they are all stating conflicting ideas, that is impossible?

But the truth is not exciting. It doesn’t bring in the ratings or sell products. And first and foremost making money is the most important thing in life, right?

How did this happen? Who is to blame? There is no simple answer.

I do know this. The truth is out there. It may be covered in my fox news induced vomit. But it is out there.

Go find it.
