I’m not here to bog you down with yet another detailed rundown of the ecological, ideological and virological crises that stubbornly continue to confront contemporary society. Suffice to say, the feverish, triple comorbidities of man-made climate change, invading incendiary Vlad, and the still “hot on the trail” coronavirus / variants amply speak for themselves.
Rather than rehashing any of THAT… I’ve opted to discuss one particular, deleterious side effect, which this triple whammy has been having on me; perhaps you too?
I’m referring to how unproductively worrying about all that crap can easily plunge our biorhythms into a state of utter chaos; in particular, the sleep cycle; thereby plunging us into a rundown condition.
More to the point… we all must be on the lookout for the telltale symptoms; in particular…
Not Paying Attention To Detail
That I have such a prob does go way beyond my yawning a lot. That became all the more evident upon reviewing my April, WP posted content. To my astonishment (and mild embarrassment) I discovered word usage anomalies, sloppy syntax, spelling errors, typos etc.

To e.g. that… consider the quality (or lack thereof) of tasks being carried out by the surgeon, commercial airline pilot and air traffic controller; hell, even the rush hour motorist? What of the nuclear power plant technician? The general keeping a watchful (bleary?) eye on the radar screens ISO (Vlad’s) nuclear missile launches?
Best advice, as each day draws to an end, we must all…
- shut up all who air and stream bad news
- shut down our device’s bright screens
- shut our eyelids
- shut off our minds and bodies
- secure 8hrs of shut-eye (same time each day*)
* preferably night
Who knows? During our REM phase, we might even wind up dreaming up ways to shut down that ecological, ideological and virological mess we’re in.
At the very least… the odds of our working toward society’s betterment can only get better when we’re fully rested and…
