Daily Prompt: Overwhelmed

O kay, I can’t live like this–all this tweeting, and FBing, and

V blogging, as if I need to know

E very single inconsequential thing about your daily

R ituals, what you’re selling, what you’re pushing.

W hat I need is quiet–physical and mental–a

H iatus from personal and political rants and

E nd-of-the-world diatribes. If the world is

L ost, then let me at the very least live

M y last brief moments

E njoying the illusion that people really

D o love and respect each other–at least now and then.

    The plus side to overwhelmed is that it can also mean to overcome with superior forces. I don’t know about you but I definitely need superior forces! Coffee???

  2. Nicely put. I’m with you, girl. The only way I survived was to unplug and write. I am cautiously peeking at what is posted. My weapon is a single photo of beauty-nature and hope. My prayer is they help settle people down and everyone firmly plants their feet and comes together as friends.

I would love to hear from you!
