Off Topic: Just Another Day

Here we are again. I can not believe we are in October already and officially in Autumn. Although this is my favorite season the mood has been dark as of late on so many levels and in part the reason for my absence.

If you live in the US of A you are aware of the ongoing, never ending political strife and in particular the current fiasco. It is all very heartbreaking to hear so many varied personal stories that all obviously steer why people's opinions lean a certain way towards the current controversy.

It is also disappointing to not be able to have open minded conversations with friends because so many people are entrenched in their political beliefs that they won't for a mere second stop to give the benefit of the doubt to the "other side".  

I won't go into all that here, for this should be an oasis of distraction. I think I just wanted to vent for a moment and explain part of the reason why I haven't been feeling particularly creative. 

And I'm not sure why - 
because for so many it is Just Another Day in the good ol' USA.* 
We Will Return to our Regular Broadcasting Shortly.

*And on a random side note (or perhaps as a snapshot of how my mind works) all the latest news with references to previous decades and in particular the '80s led my mind to the tag line Just Another Day. A sadly perfect tagline, which came to mind from this rather apropos 80s band and their song by the same name.
