Though it may look like I am turning a deaf ear to the degradation of our messy world, I am not. I see and feel each thing that is going on. It is this awareness that is making me despondent, as each passing day I fumble with understanding what is befalling upon us.
It is not that I cannot comprehend what is being said and done, for I do. But, do not confuse my silence for ignorance. My unobtrusive calmness in the form of a response is indeed a powerful strength in responding. – dbA
