I don’t usually write down beat posts, preferring to write my blog as I like to live, by building a protective shield of happiness, simple joys and beauty all around my family, my friends and myself. A way of keeping the often harsh reality of living in this dark and unkind world of ours at bay. But watching the news and reading the updates about this country of ours that is descending into a terrifying chaos at night, I just want to say my thoughts are with all those affected. Feeling saddened, helpless and afraid, even though I am miles away from any serious upset it still feels too close. I am hoping for everyone’s sake that tonight will be different.
