Half of me feels quite ashamed to write this, but the other half recognises that I can't do anything so that all it does is it makes me feel totally inadequate. I watched half an hour of the Breakfast programme on BBC this morning over my breakfast. In the course that half hour I saw:
1. The terrible loss of life and devastation in Beirut.
2. The new lock downs here, there and everywhere just underlining
the fact that people are not following the rules.
3. People crossing the Channel in flimsy inflatable boats,
trying desperately to get across to the UK.
4. A forecast for the next year's economic growth (or lack of it)
and the possible unemployment figures.
I am in my late eighties, I am aware of all these things, but I can do
absolutely nothing about any of them. Do I keep torturing myself every morning watching and despairing or do I stop watching - in other words do I say 'Stop the World I want to get off?'
Changing the subject completely (I cannot worry about the above all
day) my new computer has just come but because my son has only just returned from a car service he has decided to leave it until tomorrow.
