Stream of consciousness
Then as I was mulling over in my head what I wanted to say regarding North Korea, myy thoughts jumped from one thing to another. A stream of consciousness. It went like this;
North Korea's missile launch did not upset me at all. I felt it was just another drama on the grand stage of world politics..next! Then, I thought about some of the people who could in the future be affected if the missiles would reach their full potential..(i.e. Robbie from San Diego!), then I remembered how I felt during the cold war living in the Netherlands and as a teenager I felt often unnerved thinking that if a nuclear war would start between the US and Russia, we'd be toast(ed) in our little 'kikker' landje / country! So then I thought how blase I had become since I was literally out of reach for any potential North Korean weaponry. Just wait what I would write if anything happened between China and the US...I'd surely would be covered then! Then..I thought about China's potential for stepping up to the plate of being the main Super power negotiator in this N.Korean situation and how it could lead to a stronger, diplomatic role for the Chinese that could in the future perhaps be a good counter to the US. I thought about the fact that we need more than one Super power, not for the potential of blowing up our planet 1000 times over..but just to counter the arrogance of the one that is the 'power that shall be' right now. And no, I do not think in terms of America bashing, but just a healthy set of boundaries that could lead to certain reprimands shall we say or 'incentives'.
I thought about the Economist article on North Korea this week and then thought of all the books and articles that are waiting for me to turn me into a respectible 'know enough' since I do not. Then, of course, I feel the pressure to write something half way decent and intelligent and think, I don't have time! Until the little wheels in my head spin so fast they phloop out of their joints or thinga me jiggies and I slow down again to think..ah well. Who am I trying to impress anyway. For every season, blah blah blah. It'll come.
At least I have plenty of good blogs to read, and I do enjoy all of them;
Docstrangelove, Robbie's Independent Opinions, Donkeyphant, The Osterley Times,Saudi Jeans,Mahmoud's Den, Is America Burning, Make Some Noise, Pen and Sword, Withinsight, Linday's Lobes, CafeDA, the Existentialist Cowboy Update; did I just forget my friend Zeb? After all that? tssa..Inside Zebster!
what? doesn't she know where the blogroll is supposed to go?? Yes my dears I do..but I am just doing my stream of consciousness thing and figured I'd do a wee bit of a plug...lots to read, lots to comment on, interesting topics this week..and most of all, great passion and opinions. That is what a blog is supposed to be for me.
If I left anyone out..apologies..
so if I lag behind on my posting, chances are, I'm reading and commenting instead.
