Too. Much. Cruelty. Really, guys, there's just too much out there. It's an overload. And I'll give you one that just happened yesterday.
To many, it might seem nightmarish to watch someone beat the shit out of some helpless individual. But that's exactly the position in which I found myself. Except that the helpless individual was two dogs resting in the shade.
After a full day of work and gym action, I wanted to put this horrible Monday of mine away, go home, crash into bed. And as I was walking I saw a bunch of local kids moving stealthily towards something on the side. I was too curious to keep my eyes on the road and… the next thing I knew, there was a bottle and stick thrown at full force at the sleeping dogs. And that just made my blood boil! But before I had time to react, I heard those mongrels running and laughing all the way down to the end of the road.
That being said, between us, I’d like to find these kids and do to them what they did to those poor dogs. I know there’s a line of people who would want to mangle these kids. I hope and pray that karma exists. Kids who start off being so extremely violent at such a young age and have no concern for other living beings; I can only wonder what these imps will be like as grown-ups. Abusers? Rapists? Muggers? Gang members? You don't need witty commentary from me. My only suggestion? Drop these kids in North Korea with their damn bows and arrows and see what happens. Either that or strap them down and let dogs lick their face for all eternity.
Don't let any of this get you down, folks. After I got home and had freshened up. I walked into the living room and playing on the floor was the most adorable thing in the world, my niece, trying to paint with a little smile on her face. Seizing encouragement from the important things in my life and never being overwhelmed under the burden of what is often a dim-witted world. Time and again, it's a gorgeous place to be in as well.
Speaking of gorgeous I first heard of Nikka Costa’s ‘Push & Pull’ over the weekend through a friend I must mention – Ajay Jee. This four minute song inspired me enough to listen to it over and over again and also post it in this entry. and. she. is. awesome. Plus I really like the lyrics in this song. Kudos to you Mr. Jee.
That wraps up today’s post. As always, enjoy the music.
