Interesting Times

See here scenes from the recession from the Boston Globe. It's easy to hear the words and all the media ranting about what is happening around the world. But the pictures bring it home. Construction stopped halfway. A thousand or hundred thousand applicants per job. Unsold products taking up acres of storage space. Frankly, I don't believe it when they say we'll be recovering in a year or two. I think this is the first big drop in a pattern of decline that will go for centuries. Here we go. Interesting times, indeed. There is nothing to do now but enjoy what we have....a beam of sunshine, a pretty flower, a hot shower, a good meal. Aren't we lucky? We still have internet. For now.
