maybe the world is ending


emerged from my stroke to read that there is a gas-like odor in Manhattan and a few dozen birds died in downtown Austin. is the world ending?

that, plus all these random deaths and that avalanche in colorado. and all those deaths in iraq.

or maybe i’m just not used to watching the news. these days, i’m watching the news lots–part of an invalid’s life.  does the world fall apart like this EVERY day?

  1. Unfortunately, I do think the world falls apart in some way, every day. I think often we just don’t notice. Which is probably a good thing. But on the other hand, I don’t think the world is ending. This week, anyway.

  2. The smell gave me such a headache this morning—no worries, they say, but they still don’t know what it is. I wish I knew what to say about the rest of the world.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better.

    I think some days the world does feel like it is falling apart, Jade. Especially these days.

    Take care of yourself.

  4. writing from Austin — those birds had it coming.

  5. That gas is pretty trippy, huh? But I don’t think the world is ending anytime soon.
