Somehow it just isn't in me to knit or post on a knitting blog these days.
I am feeling quite overwhelmed about the world political situation. I feel frustrated, manipulated, and almost emotionally abused. Sorry. I know you don't come here for this, but I just don't know what else to say. Every day that goes by I feel like I don't know what to believe. I feel like our president is a puppet in Team America (mind you, I haven't seen the movie though) and whoever is holding the strings is obviously thinking of bigger things than we are seeing on stage.
It's like the middle of a chess game. I love to play chess, but I hate that part. You have to commit suicide, sacrifice pieces, just to get the board cleared so that you can play an end game. It is tedious, stressful, messy and dangerous. The game can turn on you so easily if you don't anticipate your opponents moves accurately.
This whole thing with Israel/Lebannon/Gaza - Syria/Iran/Iraq. I have no idea how this is all going to play out but it pains me so. And I still ask myself the question, are they trying to distract us from something else? And if so what are they distracting us from? And exactly who are "they"? Do I sound crazy yet? I have just read so many strange things in the last week that I may not make sense. I can't exactly put it together yet myself, but it just seems to me that there is more than meets the eye here.
I will get back to knitting if for no other reason that it will distract me a bit and help me stay sane. I just feel like this is a very dangerous game that is being played and the timing just seems really contrived, I am just left with the questions, "why?"
