Turbulence..



 There are a lot of young people these days who choose not to watch the news. I found this a little hard to understand until I realised that there is actually very little good news covered. You know it has to be out there somewhere, but news channels have decided that it's the bad that attracts viewers. I am as shocked as millions of others at the atrocities that occur daily around the world these days and found myself bawling yesterday morning while watching a mother grief stricken, not knowing that when her young daughter went off full of excitement to a concert that it would be the last time she would see her. How can that even happen! Where do you go when you can't make sense of things? For me it's either my garden or the beach.. if you stare long enough...


... things calm down eventually.. for a while :( Take care and stay safe...

  1. I'm with you Grace! I think it's important to have a place you can go away from the news for a while. This madness in the world is so upsetting and it's especially hard because there is no understanding it. I can't even imagine what could cause a person to do such evil. I wish I had ocean close by. That seems like a good place to lift those burdensome thoughts. I'll have to settle for a walk in the garden.

  3. Hi Grace, I can feel with you. But you can't imagine what happened in/with Europe in the last few years. We (not the people you know) imported the problems and our politicians are are proud to declare that is intercultural. Be happy to live in Perth, there is also crime but not of this quality. The Aussie Government goes the right way: "There is no way".

  5. Beautifully said.

    I've taken to just reading the papers instead of watching the news. It gives a certain distance, and these days that includes not hearing the voice of that "man" in the Oval Office.

  6. The beach is my soul place too, PDP. It can be a sad world!

  7. Sometimes, we just have to shut it all out or we'd go insane.

  8. The relentlessness of waves and the world underneath gives some perspective.

  9. There have been too many cowardly and ugly and unspeakable acts of violence the last decade or two, but the most craven has to be the terrorism in Manchester. Who, what twisted minds, would conceive of a plot to murder innocent YOUNG children who should have their entire life ahead of them? I absolutely cannot get my mind around all this violence. A private place of natural wonder offers some measure of peace, and I think your top photo is outstanding. But, I cannot believe that this can be enough. This madness must stop to deter the turbulence in the world.

  10. There is always plenty of bad to report. There is good too. News liberals only report what they can sensationalize. Seldom do they report on good things. I won't miss Florida where the only news is the pervs, murderers and such in Orlando. Oh, then there is Trump! There is no excuse for any of the crap pulled by the cowards from the Middle East and elsewhere though.

    Nice photos Grace. It is always nice at the beach.

  12. Great top shot!
    We tend to think the world will give peace, human nature declares otherwise.

  14. Some people don't know how to live and can only spread hate and fear. We have to go on with our lives in peace and joy. All those religions have never brought any good through the ages. Glad my parents gave me another upbringing with love and no restrictions of any religion.

  15. Yes, Grace, you speak with great compassion. You stay safe too.

  16. It´s crazy times, Grace. If it wasn´t religion what would the excuse be, I wonder. Taking children/young adults, the sickest thing I can think of. Sadly no ocean nearby to calm down here... Let´s all stay safe!

  17. Thanks for sharing. Stay safe.

  18. It all just makes me wonder what is wrong with the human race that people can actually do this sort of thing. So many young people in this latest mass murder. Stay safe Diane

  19. I watch and read only certain shows and publications. They are the ones I trust to do their best to tell the truth. We have an abomination here called FOX News which has done more to undermine our democracy than any other single thing in the last 50 years.

  20. Sad and shocking events seem to be on the news every day. I agree the garden and the beach are a good distraction from all the madness! Have a good weekend Grace.

  21. Sad and scary times to be sure.
    It's nice to have a couple of spots like that to decompress.

  22. The world is going through so much upheaval, bad times, bad vibes seem to surround us.
    It is important to remember there are still so many good things and good people out there ...

    These are lovely photographs you've shared Grace, thank you.

    All the best Jan
