It has been a troubling day today.

It all started in the morning with a recurring nightmare I have carried for my entire career. The possibility of ending a life and it being my fault. The thought happened early in my career, and my friend and boss, Dr Jack Arrants, kept me sane and let me continue my career with zero, life ending accidents.

Then other subconscious thoughts started finding there way into my conscience.

America. What has happened to my country. In a few short years it has deteriorated into a land of fear. A land of hate. A land where if you speak your thoughts you will be deleted as a friend. Loving family members become distant. Life becomes confusing.

Is it Facebook? Is it the political correct environment we find ourselves in? Is it the isolation the the CoVID virus bought to our homes, country, world? What is causing this?

Because of CoVID we decided to build a home in an area where 15 years ago we enjoyed being. It’s about halfway between our two boys and their families. It’s also a very religious, Christian area. I have never met so many hypocrites. Many I have encountered would do work for me. Lie to me today and go to church on Sunday. And people wonder why I have issues with organized religion.

So much hate! I don’t understand anymore. Why? People hating others whom they have never met. Hating cultures them have never known and don’t understand. Hating everything they don’t know. There is no sense of honor or loyalty.

Today has been a troubling day. Many of you know me. You know me well. I was accused of shooting a dog today that I didn’t like. This hurts to the core. It came from an American who also said it was the Northerner with the funny accent. Me. I don’t hurt animals. I rescue, save and love them.

Yes, the America I knew is gone. Or is it me? Has travel and understanding changed me so much that I just don’t understand anymore.

I miss my tribe of travelers. From all over the world. I need them and their understanding, tolerance and love in my life. I know many are also suffering from these same feelings. What has changed so fast. Could it be me?

Peace everyone.

Anyone want to buy a house???

    Thoughts are with you both. I think travel changes us all but maybe it just really opens our eyes. Tolerance is in short supply for many and for many of those it is either their way or the highway.
    Stay well and know that this too shall pass. This cigar and scotch is for you sir.

    Hi each,
    You hang in there, all this madness will pass.
    Take care, stay safe.
    See you somewhere in 2022?

    It is not just you! I know you well and you know me very well. I used to be compassionate, caring, sympathetic, empathetic and cared for everyone regardless! Some troubling thought processes seem to be creeping into my mind these days,it is such a hateful world with some of the organized religions being the most hypocritical of all. How and why did we become this way? Where is the sense of family? Where is the loyalty to this country and the constitution? No more business on a handshake, no more truth, logic and common sense. We are ready to move somewhere off the grid and just “be”.
