April 23, 2009 Back to What?

It was a beautiful spring day today, sunny, blue skies, beginning to get warm. - and I think a lot of people are feeling a yearning for things to settle down, for this deeply disturbing crisis to be over. For things to go back to where they were before.

But where is that? What previous point in time would we choose? I mean, to have reality be the way it was in: dot dot dot, you fill in the date.

Before the subprime mess? Before the Iraq war? Before 911? No, wait..before the dot com bust?
I don’t know about you but I can’t pick a point in the past that I would choose to return to. So where does that leave me, or us? Maybe imagining a new reality is more reassuring than hoping to get back to an elusive ‘safe and secure’ past.

I know some people have been thinking about this for a long time - but what does the answer look like in the context of today’s world?

Where are you headed?
