Working for retirement; many people did, others are still trying. Some retirees clipped by the financial crisis are forced back into the workforce. The youngsters are starting at a time of global financial crisis, pandemic, melting glaciers, and leaders drunk on power provided by artificial intelligence; but this last part they have not yet recognized.

When my husband and I traveled, the elderly people in our lives thought that was a bit irresponsible, “that’s what you do when your retired”.  The elderly we met during our travels praised our decisions “good, do it while you are young”, and I’m glad we did.

The uncertainty we all find as we waltzed thru life, put in question all the actions generations and generations took in the past to assure pleasant lives.

The dream of a house where one can raise their family is being taking away by natural disasters all over the world; house ownership will become prohibitive as insurance will grow unaffordable.

Entire industries, let alone jobs and careers are being eliminated as robots march on.

Environmental changes, decimation of wealth, and pandemics,  will ravage the human landscape tirelessly.

Life was easy then.

“I will not make you dependent on me.  My approach is to find alternative options under a circumstance and open new doors into a resolution of old problems. Clear the docket so you can see things from other angles as you absorb other possibilities. In time, after you had conquered your needs, you will be able to replace what does not work, accept what you cannot change, and accomplish what you want.”

Neutrality comes with the price of being disconnected. Society is composed of like-minded people; teal lovers search for bluish-green connections, and the burnt sienna worshippers choose to navigate a path that’s deep reddish brown. Embracing the color wheel will yield richer exposure and isolation.
There is no glory in neutrality.
