Hey H. How much are you in sync with this world?
It is a harmless question that you can easily get away from with pulling a monkey face or just answering that you aren't, never have been and probably won't in the foreseeable future. But have you ever seriously asked yourself that question?
I was just thinking today that, although I read the papers and watch the news, am providing jobs and working my share as well, do my own shopping and laundry, pay taxes and receive government grants, am interested in the world's health be it environmentally, financially or physically, am living my life and taking part in that of others, I feel I'm living my life and the world lives its own.
It doesn't make me sad or unhappy. It just struck me as odd that, as interested and involved I think I am, most of the things around me just pass me by and have no affect on me personally whereas some global incidents really piss me off.
I think I'll start a conversation about the weather with the neighbour tomorrow.
