So I'm sitting here again watching the hype on Facebook and realizing what a huge wide ranging group of friends I am privileged to know. They span the globe and span the range of left to right, liberal to moderate to conservative. I love you guys *hug*
Ya know I'm totally reminded of 1999 right now.
Do y'all remember Y2K... Oh the hype the freak out, the fear... and New years day 2000 ushered in a year of the electrical stations continuing to work and everyone being able to turn their lights on. Yup I'll admit it, I did spend the years 2000-2001 figuring out how I could hide powdered eggs in things to use them up. We also ate lots of rice and beans. Well you know we had to be prepared just in case. Ok I did freak out, I did worry, and all it got me was a sack full of beans...
I'm sitting here meditating in my small way on Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
All that fear over Y2K for nought, I spent so much emotional energy, time effort for what? A sack of beans... My hubby composed a song in 2005 so I'll leave you with it Nothing New Under The Sun it's quite catchy, he even let me be a beatnik poetry reader type in it.
