watching the news peeps, I’m reminded of the advice “blow up the tv, throw away the paper, move to the country” A wise woman once said to me ” It is the job of the news media to get us all to feel helpless and hopeless” Once more there is a story of a missing person, but it’s not local. or regional. So why does the entire world need to know about this? Global village? Id say more like a global city, with neighborhoods. The more neighborhoods one knows, the more connections you have. So wrap your imagination round this, walking down a street in Prague, and I smell OMG!! Mexican cooking!! Unexpected memories, which sets my stomach purring. Wonderful tastes and textures, and cold Czech beer.
