There were Inspiring Moments with Acts Of Kindness between strangers about which none of us will ever know. Some of you may be Private Saints to The Homeless or simply one who offers to help an elderly or Disabled Person cross a street should they be floundering. On the other side of things, perhaps you were the recipient of a Much-Needed Boost to your Self Esteem or Income by an Anonymous (or known) Source. Classic, very real Random Acts Of Kindness are why the world remains as Strangely Peaceful as it is…in an Overview.
Yes, our Planet, many of our countries, are in Depressing Shape, be it War, Economic Collapse, or Natural Disasters. It's rather Intense Out There. We do live "…in interesting times", don't we? Nevertheless, Miracles in both Medicine and Science continue to amaze and astound. What we once thought was A Truth yesterday is suddenly an obsolete viewpoint of considerably mind-boggling discoveries a day later.
We have grown enough to Expand Social Tolerance & Human Substance, witnessing the Very Strong Odor of Almost Everyone supporting the legalization of Marijuana, Gay Marriage (as mentioned in yesterday's post), and we still have the First Man Of Colour at the desk in the Oval Office in that crusty old building on Pennsylvania Avenue. But, The 'Same Must Remain' attitude of "Only a White MAN should be there" continues with a frightful Minority of the population with extremely Big Mouth's.
Celebrities, or shall I write it this way; The Spoiled Brats of Music & Film, along with The Most Overexposed Annoying Group Of Famewhores Evah – the Kar-Kash-Ins, of course – reflected how far we have fallen from True Talent in those arenas (beyond a few good ones here and there). The desire to fall back into a touch of Noir and an unfortunate bout of Really Stupid Movies also reflects a need for Simplicity/Banality while all about us appear to be Losing Their Heads. It also tells us that Hollywood Studios and TV Networks are often run by Frightened, Perverted Children. Nice to know a good film or show will sometimes slip-through the crackies, though.
I won't touch the subject of "Obamacare" because I just won't. But, as you know, it's happening right now.
I will write I never thought I would ever have such respect for a Pope of the Catholic Church, for eff's sake, as I do for Pope Francis. But I do. And it continues to grow with a surprising majority of people who share my jaded views on/about Organized Religion.
There's more. There is always more to say and write about a Previous Year, yet I've written enough about 2013 During 2013, and can't wait for the calendar to change…although my Personal Partial New Year may not begin until after the end of January.
Meanwhile, I'm anticipating a very comfortable, lightly social evening tonight, therefore it's now time to ready myself for a long day of preparation, so I'll end the Quasi-Summation to go about my business, hoping that you and yours will enjoy whatever your plans may be for The Big Celebration.
Have a Happy New Year's Eve!
And Thank You for Always Stopping By!
