Out of control


It’s difficult at present not to feel the world is a mad and dangerous place to be.  The brutality and devastation in Ukraine, the immediate sacking of 800 P&O workers who seem to have no employment rights at all, Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe confirming she should never have been held hostage in Iran for 6 years while 5 different foreign secretaries talked of negotiating her release. 

I don’t write about politics on my blog although I do rant a lot about mindless bureaucracy.  Sometimes I am offended by the political comments of other bloggers and their assumption that I am of the same persuasion.    Now however I am enraged by how the world seems to revolve on power and money, greedy grabby companies and individuals, few leaders prepared to lead and a lot of ordinary folks trying to make a difference.   

I have no answers to the despair we all feel but I need to acknowledge it is there and I have.  Let me finish with a photo that arrived this afternoon of Grigio and Enrico taking the sun.  Who knows when we shall see them, Europe needs to feel more stable before we will leave Ilkley.

  1. Being a cat looks a nice prospect at present - no troubles except looking forward to your return.

  2. Just a few power crazy individuals who make war, and change so many lives. Your cats have found a warm spot, lucky them.

  3. It certainly is a scary time especially in Eastern Europe. Glad there's a gigantic ocean between here and there!

  4. Just when there seems to be light at the end of one tunnel, another one darkens before us. There is so much to feel unsettled about now that I find I have to ignore much of it for my own sanity.
