I just wanted to express heartfelt gratitude for all the folks at Scot's Forums.

You folks have made my life interesting and at times sustained me through

difficult times- at least three such periods in my life come readily to mind.

 

Scot's is probably a pretty diverse community, representing nearly all 'sides'

of the many political divides presently consuming our republic. OTOH it is

probably a boomer-leaning demographic in terms of average age. It is not,

thank goodness, the 'wide open spaces' of the social media with their

incessant warring and scorched earth. I really couldn't handle that, don't

intend any late starts there, either. I have been more than content with

our little oasis...

 

Others here have shown patience and forbearance with me as I transit

through yet another crisis in my life, probably the fourth or so for me in

the past decade. This one is a big crisis as well, profoundly affecting us all.

I am grateful for that forbearance.

 

I am sad that the one venue   I have had for blowing off steam has been

shuttered. In the past I have seen members here get angry and storm

off, taking their marbles with them. I came close to doing that myself

back in the mid-2000's ( Iraq war/Bush Jr. years). There was a good

bit of gloating and rubbing of salt in wounds, etc. But I stuck it out and

I will continue to...

 

Our deeply divided society has become quite intolerant of views

contrary to the main narratives. We are quite clearly a sick society,

and indeed that sickness is world wide, not just confined to America.

The sickness I refer to here is a soul-sickness, not a virus. We are in

deep trouble. I hope we survive what is coming. I'm not a deeply

religious person, but I will try to say a few constructive prayers for

us all, from time to time. We need help. I don't see any on the

horizon, only devastation. But I haven't given up and I won't, either!

I still find life interesting and intriguing. I will fight the good fight

and never give up my principles, as so many around me apparently

have. So long as there is life, there is hope!

 

I am grateful, too, for having been given a keen mind and a

reasonably good sense of humor. I will honor those gifts and

remain dedicated to truth over fear, love over hatred, and above

all, science. Real science, which is experimental in nature and

often asks embarrassing questions, never being truly 'settled

science' (an oxymoron)- not the beaten down, illegitimate

step child kind of science that serves corporate interests,

not humanity.

 

I honor you all, even those of you who violently disagree

with me. You are all brothers and sisters. I wish you peace.

I haven't the slightest idea what the album sounds like. I just found it online.

The cover art speaks to me...

It's dark, but that's pretty much where I am right now. It's like a cross between Sadam

Hussein's intentionally set oil rig fires during Desert Shield- and Lady Liberty going

down fighting to the bitter end... with undertones of all the greedy oil barons of

the past century and the amazingly widespread destruction and devastation they

have wreaked on mankind and the world. One surprising connection between that

particularly odd type of (ostensibly) human beings and current events I may develop

later... but Clutter is feeling way too negative as it is. I don't need to go there right now...

 

Things usually feel much better in the morning. Clutter is feeling very much abandoned,

unloved, rejected, and unappreciated. And something I don't often experience, day to

day- a very strong sense of aloneness, isolation, and alienation. It will pass...
