There is so much intrigue going on in the Political World at the moment - hundreds of thousands dying for want of Oxygen in India- funeral pyres lighting up the night sky- Nazanin being used as a 'bargaining chip according to today's Times- funeral pyres lighting up the night sky.........I could go on. It is never ending and midst all this families are left distraught by the death of loved ones, a little girl is growing up while her mother is detained the other side of the world - and this is but two of the catastrophes in the pages of today's newspaper.
And I can do nothing. Yes I can read about how much Carrie reportedly spent on a new sofa - but the question is 'do I want to'? The answer is no - I really don't want my blog to become a political sounding board. So I shall talk instead about the weather.
It has rained all afternoon - quite heavily - enough to leave large puddles in the road. And it is raining still. Already everything looks greener and it will be greener still by tomorrow morning. One heavy shower seems to do more good than a whole can of water. It is only half past six and already it is quite dusk. No sign of the sun.
So I am sorry folks but I am rising above politics '- it is not that I am not interested in what is going on in the world, it is just that however much I complain about things, however much I go on about what I think should be done and what I think is wrong - I can do nothing. I voted, I live in a Democracy (thank goodness|) and once the Ballot Box has been locked - that's it. And especially at my age (88) - I can't devote any time to pontificating on what should or should not be done politically. Am I wrong to feel like this? If so I apologise but I believe there is a time and a place for everything and my blog is a no no for politics either with a small or a capital P.
