Not weary of any particular task, of my working life, of my writing life – or of my life.
Tired of all that noise.
Everywhere I turn, so many – someone shouting, repeating, bragging and reminding me and reminding all of us this is the ‘best the world has ever been’. Really?
If we are talking science/medicine, data, technology and telecom – sure. If we are talking gadgets, wearables, the spread of safety and democracy vis-à-vis wars, poverty and disease, then YES … better than ever.
But if we are examining kindness, civility and doing for others, then maybe we don’t have so much to brag about, which begs this question: how do we get better at things we seem to be getting worse at?
Whose responsibility is it anyway?
Individual or collectively?
So, what makes things work?
In every day, in every situation – there is an important part. The part which stays with you, that lingers, that keeps reminding us what matters most. And why it matters is worth examination.
