Am I the Only One?

I chose a graphic image today to show the feelings I have racing through my body. But it won't load to my page. A full moon is clearly wreaking havoc with my electronics .... and my ability to sleep. I'll add it later.

My big question of the day .... Am I the Only One? The Only One worried that there is a threat of a war and yet no one around me seems worried. Everyone has continued on with their lives, even joking about the two leaders who seem intent on changing the course of history with their words and their threatened actions. So why are we NOT doing anything? I can't sleep. My stomach is in knots. I don't dare turn on the tv for fear of a "breaking news" image to cross the screen. I keep busy and try to distract myself. But it's not working. Last night, we were at a meeting with our theatre company. I tried so hard to be my sweet self, cracked a few one liners that made the room laugh. But deep inside, my body is held in a fearful state. They are planning our show for next years festival. I'm wondering if we should take the lobster out of the freezer and eat it now .... do we have days left? Weeks? Months? Will this happen? If it does, are we safe where we live? It's all speculation now but what if it becomes real? What if one of them gives the go ahead? I want to see my grand babies grow. I've love to be a great gramma like my gramma and my mom both got to be. I want to take a cruise. And travel through Europe. I want to grow my first veggie patch. And organize the garage better. I want to publish my book. And visit my little island one more time. Do I quit my job? Do I write my memoirs? What do I do? What will you do?

You are not the only one. Both regarding blogger and what's going on in the world. Blogger won't load pictures today, I have seen it on a few blogs. I had a nightmare the other night about the end of the world, and you are right, no one seems to be taking it very seriously. I am generally an upbeat person but not right now at all.

I so understand CC! It's worrisome and also strange that it's not generating very much conversation. I see everyone around me just carrying on, as if nothing is happening. And I feel like the world is doing the same thing. I hope soon there is a change and leaders step up and stop this madness!

I worry quietly about the threat of war. I yearn to be carefree as I was as a child instead of this dread that things will escalate beyond the point of no return.
I think underneath the surface any thinking person must be worried. Doesn't make sense that they wouldn't.

I think everyone is worried, but we all process our fright in different ways.
As far as doing something? I had only one vote and I used it but now other than harassing my congressman and senators with phone calls (yeah I am one of those callers they don't like) I am pretty powerless to do anything.
