Wildlife Greetings

Todays Inspiration

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

Thoughts by Fandango

Would you like to be a child growing up in today’s world?

Whoa, this is a tough one. I look at my two young grandkids and see happy, well cared for children and my heart melts. They are innocents who know literally nothing about what craziness is going on in the world outside of their home and day care.

But I worry a lot about the kind of world they’re going to be living in by the time they become adults.

What will the world be like 15 to 20 years from now?

Will our planet be continuing on a trajectory that could lead to an inhospitable environment that is necessary to sustain human life within their lifetimes?

Will they be taught by their parents or in school to be critical thinkers or will they have to toe the line of some political ideology or religious dogma?

Will they be exposed to the mistakes of the past so they don’t repeat them, or will those mistakes be whitewashed from history as if they never happened?

Will people of all races, religions, colors, and genders have learned to live in harmony or will bigotry, racism, and hatred toward “the other” continue to spiral upwards?

Will they live in a free democracy or representative government or will they be the subjects of an autocratic, fascist dictator?

Will countries continue to be at war with one another?

Once born, we all have a will to survive, to live, to thrive, so I don’t know how to answer Di’s specific question. But based upon my rather bleak perspective of where humanity is headed, if I had a choice about whether or not to be born into today’s world — a choice none of us have — I would probably choose to not be a child growing up in this world.

Fandango – Truthful Tuesday — Today’s World – 25th October 2022
I found this to be a fascinating and truthful observation of our world at large today – a remarkably sad and honest view. My thanks to my friend Fandango for allowing me to share it.

If you could have a house ANYWHERE in the world… where would you want it? – why would want it there? – and what kind of house would you have?

Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

  1. The response by Fandango echoes my feelings too. It’s a crazy, stressful world too grow up in.
    It might sound boring but I’d like to live in my current house! I’ve gotten used to it. It’s comfortable, situated in a convenient locality and can accommodate most of my family. No place better than home.

    1. Hey Sadje, then it sounds like you have answered the question wonderfully already – no place like home.

      As to Fandango’s observations, as bleak and honest as they are – l think a lot of people can feel the resonation within them too.

  2. If I could live anywhere, cost be damned, I’d live in Santa Barbara. I love the college town feeling, the close proximity to the beach, the not too far distance to family, and the beautiful weather.
    I’d want a one story house with no stairs or steps. I’d want a room dedicated to my crafts, a large guest bedroom, a library room with a fireplace, a large yard for Annie to play in, and a garden I could grow flowers and veggies in.

  3. Thank you, my friend, for sharing my rather bleak observations about where we are heading. I hope I got it all wrong.

    If I could live anywhere, I’d live in a house on a mountain, fairly isolated from the rest of the world, with a lush forest on three sides and a view of the ocean far below on the fourth side.

    1. Hey Fandango, you are most welcome and l agree, it would be lovely if everything you wrote of didn’t materialise and yet l think at times we need to address the very bleakness the world is looking like in order to view the way forwards.

      Your observations were brutal and honest and needed to be seen again because of that.

      That would be an ideal house location for me also, l can appreciate the serenity of that 🙂

      All too well.
