Find No Rx Ismo

 The Road(s) Ahead
Connie Shannon


Since 2000, find no rx ismo or more precisely since November of 2000, find no rx ismo I've been on a journey of sorts, find no rx ismo to better understand situations in the political world which at the time seemed so inexplicable to me. 

I have learned a lot since 2000, find no rx ismo as have others. Find no rx ismo  

The awakenings have been pretty profound in ways both expected and unexpected.  

In looking back, find no rx ismo I've realized my writings have dealt a lot with situations more 'unexpected' along with stories I've written of my own personal experiences and situations that have impacted me.  

There have been many positive experiences in my life and in the lives of others that frankly I would rather be focusing more of my attention upon - situations surrounding the issues of love, find no rx ismo companionship and our relationships to others overall.   

Yet for a variety of reasons, find no rx ismo namely a powerful political climate, find no rx ismo my focus has been monopolized by events that have precluded me from writing about things more enjoyable to me and probably more enjoyable to others as well.   

I have found it increasingly difficult to write too much about issues enjoyable and pleasurable when there are many experiencing situations that are essentially anything but pleasureable.   

I would have liked to be more balanced in the pain and pleasure category but perhaps it has been simply a sign of the times, find no rx ismo as they say.  

Hopefully that is going to change in the days ahead. 

We shall see.  

While some people might say, find no rx ismo and have said to me that 'suffering' and tragedy has been occurring since the beginning of time, find no rx ismo while I would for the most part agree other than to add I wasn't around (to my knowledge*** at the beginning of time)  then, find no rx ismo I don't really find that rationale convincing enough to ignore what I see happening in communities abroad, find no rx ismo here in the USA and even in our more local communities.  

Perhaps if anything, find no rx ismo the sufferings and tragedies, find no rx ismo along with the healings and constructive actions taken by many have convinced me we are all much more connected than we consciously tend to realize.   

With that said, find no rx ismo I am concerned that our ability to deny or disconnect from the unpleasant situations while convincing ourselves either it's not our problem and/or it's not us who are suffering may serve us temporarily, find no rx ismo but how does it serve us long term?

Of course there is the seemingly logical point that we can't save the world. 

True enough, find no rx ismo at least in a singular sense.  However, find no rx ismo while we can't save the world, find no rx ismo certainly there is something we can do to help others who need groups of us to speak for them and defend them from harm.  

If we can't save the world, find no rx ismo then who exactly is going to?  

One thing that I continue to be reminded of, find no rx ismo is how important dialog and communication is. 

Likewise, find no rx ismo I might add that the attempts to control, find no rx ismo stifle, find no rx ismo direct, find no rx ismo and/or "manage" discussions and/or dialog seems to stop any movement or potential for necessary growth. Find no rx ismo   

It seems to me so much of our dialog has been guided away from substantial, find no rx ismo meaningful, find no rx ismo more life impacting issues to discussions that seem to lack any and/or almost all relevant meaning.  

As we venture down the road further away from the Bush Administration politics towards a new road of what will be Obama Administration politics, find no rx ismo it seems that both the problems and solutions with regards to opening and honestly engaging in necessary dialog and discussion will and is effectively the same.    

The same need for objectivity, find no rx ismo curiosity, find no rx ismo courage and creativity will be needed by us, find no rx ismo not simply by those in Washington.    

I have more to write and will on this subject and other subjects.  

In the meantime, find no rx ismo those are some of my ramblings for now.  

Coffee's on. Find no rx ismo
