"It is not true that life is one damn thing after another - it's one damn thing over and over."
Edna St.Vincent Millay

Something you fear, is something you will have to face.

And a lesson unlearned, is one you will have to repeat.

Whether it be a people at large or one person in specific. The harder we run from what we need to know, the more we are faced with the same situations over and over.

The only way to get out of the loop, is to get into it, face the cycle and break it.

Facing those same damned things that have plagued and bedeviled. It's hard work. It's staying awake. It's not letting fear anesthetize. It's looking at the choices we make that put us in the loop in the first place.

And it's about making different choices.

What is the definition of insanity? That we keep doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results.

It seems to me, fighting wars to bring peace is a lot like that.

It's not working.

How long do we have to keep repeating the same failed thing expecting different results?

War on a national level or a personal level will never bring peace or happiness.

There's got to be a better way, than over and over.

  1. I already like this blog. It's a nice antidote to a gloomy nature. I like how you take aim at problems yet with energy and hope. I was mistaken to say you look at the world through rose-colored glasses (but it wasn't meant as a criticism) -- I think you look through rose-colored *sniper sights*, or, for the doves, rose-colored magnifying glasses, evidently ready not just to discern problems, but to understand and act upon them!

    My kitties say hi to your kitty.
