New Year’s Delerium

Confusing, shocking, exciting, depressing… yeah, the number of 2022 New Year Posts are actually outright overwhelming.

Personally, I took a few steps back. This year I lost my baby sister, my stepmother decided to divorce my father because the COVID thing has hurt his earning potential in a big way, and my business struggled a bit under social media censorship, COVID revenue impacts and general 2021 sucking kinda’ things.

Instead of focusing on the terrible, which is precisely what TV/Cable news wants you to fixate upon, I turned to family.

I took my family out, despite the mandates and scaredome. We did an escape room (first time for us), ate out, did some mountain biking and hiking. I just decided to ignore the fauci-facism. He’s just enriching himself and I didn’t need to play a part.

I wish I could show pictures, but … the internet. Journos will go after the spouses and kids of anyone who disagrees with them and I can’t have that. My wife and kids may or may not agree with my protests, but that’s not my decision to make.

It’s tiring to see the “here’s what to expect” or “top trends in 2022” or “worst things to come in.,..” posts. I didn’t read them.

  1. GOOD FOR YOU !!! More people need to “Damn the torpeados ! Fll Speed Ahead” and withdraw from these ‘forced, man made ‘ crisis for awhile & just be ourselves wirh loved ones. Even the strongest, more pragmatic individuals become saturated with ugly. And, ‘Lord, help our children” If it’s confusing, unnerving to us, it’s worse for them.
    I believe that this Panic-demic has been well planned to ‘play with our pysic’ & turn us into non-resistant blobs , We turn off the TV at meal times, limit & watch the horse races, or old westerns limit our ‘news’. As Adult Americans it’s “our JOB’ to restore sanity to our country, but like any job, you need a vacation time

    Hope other will heed your example & take a mini vacation.
