Debbie Downer

I have decided that my recent angst against optimistic slogans is not helpful.  I suspect that many people are freaked out about a lot of the things they see going on around them and in the world and so clinging to sayings like, “Sometimes when it seems things are falling apart they are really falling into place…” might make them feel better for the moments before things really fall apart, or not.  I also know that the world is simultaneously wonderful for some and that saying is statistically true for many pan-dimensional beings, of whom I have never consciously met but have read about AND possibly met in a dream.

My point is, I am going to keep my grim forebodings to myself and continue to work on my latest quilt.  Oddly, I am not depressed, just depressing.quilt (2) This I suspect was left by one of those pan dimensional beings, see no contact info.

  1. That kind of broad, non-specific love does nothing for me. Though now that you point out it could be the blind adoration of a pandimensional being I am intrigued.

    • Well intrigued could be good, but fall into any black holes, you know what curiosity does to Schroder’s cat. Also what we call love and what Pan-dimensional beings call love might be very different.

  2. I am also unmoved by generic statements of love for one & all. Show me that person doing something specific, for specific other people — then I’ll be impressed. Meanwhile, I like your quilt!
