Writing is a mirror (for me). Like it's shouting back -- "anything going on?". Lazy ways exposed. Input should have produced. Here I am. Start typing, unprepared and intent, on coming up with something. 50 minutes to publish and counting.
A challenge not to flounder at vanity and concerns it'll be too dull and whack. . . .
Update: 'Dust in the mouths' quoted below can be found here. More comprehensive chat.
Why the on and on? Dissect the troubles, to those, might be listening or reading who get it and hopeful not -- "but... so?" The relative few. Seems most everyone else, remains silent, or pretend to know better. . . .
A word for me is Rees Howells and his gathered prayer times in the war. The complete misunderstanding they had and the causes of conflict persist today. With far less excuse for Rees and co. Today -- our misunderstanding is wilful. Thereby all the more principalities-powerful to oppress. Suppress and subdue.

Biblical-derived psychology has much to offer. The philosophical. Jordan Peterson causing a new wave of interest. C.S. Lewis' evangelical apologetic 1940's Broadcast Talks might be the last comparison. Considerable in popularity with unusual gravitas. Outside the walls and in-crowd.
Lewis became famous but considered lost a public . . .
We know what's going on. But: What? Can we... or do we, want, to do something? Fair to ask and difficult challenge.
Depends on what's driving the social and where. The loss of sense, freedoms, and downturn from our material pinnacle. I.e. less starvation. Who would deny this? Fascinated how -- and why . . .
The breakdown and breakthrough. A manifestation from and of God. 'Apokalupto' and 'disclosure -- appearing, coming, lighten, manifestation, be revealed, revelation'.
The good we need. All longing ones should... have to hope for. Those who struggle and suffer -- know the madness. The absence and obscene. Who see this like the . . .
