What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding … Elvis Costello
I got a peaceful, easy feeling … The Eagles
The TexPatch has been on a bit of hiatus. The back-to-school/work season and end-of-summer madness have caused their usual chaos at the homestead. At the same time the world around us seems to have plunged into what feels like greater than usual chaos – ISIS, Iraq, Ferguson, Ebola … Ebola in my Texas hometown, no less! In reality, the world is continuing on its typically chaotic course – it’s just that the crises are hitting closer to home.
I think of Dragon’s Teeth – waves crashing against molten rock. Treacherous and turbulent. But there is an ebb and flow. A give and take. Crests and troughs. I will seek the troughs between the crests and crashes – the peaceful easy moments to write and process everything that is going on and hopefully come up with some semblance of peace, love & understanding. A constructive way to understand and deal with what’s going on in the world. This is, of course, a cosmic way of saying that the TexPat is getting back to work.
