When I see a list today of the possible 2016 Democratic presidential "hopefuls," I can't believe it. Why can't we appreciate that this election is over, and give political news a break?
Imagine a whole day with a white page where the news might be. Perhaps just pictures of the snow back East, would emphasize the importance of silence, softness, pause.
I think this continual bombardment is not healthy. I think we all need a rest. I suggest everyone take a break except the nurses, doctors, etc. who are doing something worthwhile. Let's pay all the political pundits to be silent, for a day, or two, or three. Will the world fall apart? I sincerely doubt it, and if it does, I'm sure we can all get to work and put it back together again. Humpty Dumpty was an egg sitting on a wall. We can pull back from the edge and sit peacefully for awhile.
