Unsettling

Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse, they do. Each horrific scenario is competing for air space and trying to grab our nanosecond attention span. It would and should seriously disturb our equilibrium. But it doesn’t so long as we are not directly impacted. Our psychic survival requires us to be in denial for as long as we can. This was also my experience when I was young in the early fifties. We were poor, relying on jobs which were tentative, scraping a weekly wage and hoping it would continue. My Ma’s escape, and so mine was the cinema, as it was for so many people and I was sharply reminded of that very recently. It triggered this piece. Read enjoy pass it on and send feedback.
