Vacuous

20 04 2013

Sometimes, especially these past few days, I have felt like my words are more meaningless and useless because of all the bigger things out there — like bombings and deaths. I know I shouldn’t feel this because I am at least aware of what’s going on and my blog isn’t a discussion of topical news, but by not addressing it and by posting a picture of an English joke, I feel like I am one of those people who turn away from distressing things and focus on lighthearted, fun things in life because it’s easier to deal with.

I don’t want to be one of those people. I don’t think I am, but there are times when I fear I am.
