Because It’s There
It is one of those days. So much news and so much to do that it’s hardly possible to even know where to start. with breathless anticipation, the announcement came early this morning to my local news that Robert Mueller was going to hold a presser. “This is it!” so many screeched on Social Media.
Meanwhile a Ferry hit a Grey (or possibly Gray) Whale just off Seattle, and when we weren’t hearing about what Mueller was getting ready to say we were told that they wanted to spare us the graphic details of the Ferry hitting the whale, but the Coast guard was suspending the search for the now presumed dead whale. The ferries, however, were still running on time and there was no concern about any damage to the boat.
On Mt Everest yet another ill-considered attempt to summit the Mountain has failed in death. The rush to turn what is supposed to be a wonderful journey of discovery and self-introspection into a tourist trap is really the problem. The need to do things quick and easy is ruining what was once a magnificent accomplishment.
And the need to rush to an opinion about Mueller is what the media and Talk Radio do. Maybe it’s time to slow down and spend the journey learning and thinking instead of just rushing to get to the top of the opinion peaks?
