Often times, especially recently I realize I do not contribute to a lot of the political conversations, debates, arguments, rapport...that seems to surround me. For the longest time I feel like I a little bit like the the picture I posted... and feel guilty...like if I don't even "hear" or "see" or "speak" what is going on around me (politically-economically) then I will not feel it.
I tend to fly under the radar when it comes to debating most topics, often times, I feel like if I am not 100% educated on the topic I am debating that it seems crazy to approach it, I will be in the center of a debate, and hear something I disagree with, yet I keep silent, because I am thinking... "if you can't really back this up, don't even jump in to this conversation, girl!"
So I guess just for the record, I do have an opinion, but I choose, and have the right not to publicly share it, if your are really interested, invite me for coffee, I will share whatever is in my head, as non-linked to the news media I have tried to stay lately.

As I drove to work this morning I saw the most amazing sunrise.
The magnificent sun loomed above the earth expelling colors like I have not seen for a long time. Shades of red, orange yellow surrounded this stately ball of fire. The sky was alive with colors from the sun on a canvas brushed with gentle strokes in shades of blue. I passed a lake and a misty blanket of fog was hovering over this body of water and the fog engulfed the colors of the sun as it rose above the lake; hues of amber lingered above the lake as the fog gently rose. I can understand how ancient civilizations chose to worship this amazing piece of Gods creation. I turned my face towards it, closed my eyes, and soaked in the rays ...and then I remembered I was driving...
Quoting Jack Johnson, I was reminded : "slow down everyone your moving too fast, frames can't catch you when your moving like that..."
I did not take the picture, I have not figured out how to drive, sun-worship, and reach in the back seat and grab my camera and take a photo at the same time! (probably a good thing!)
