Sometimes I’m amazed at how kind complete strangers can be, even if it’s just a simple gesture – stopping to let me cross the road at a busy time.
Occasionally, it makes me forget that just because I can’t always see the shade, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
Crash. The day is hazed as it all leaks back to the forefront again. An article about the state of animals transported abroad.
It makes me choke. So much cruelty. So much ignorance. So much death.
Enter news of wars and children killed in a mass of explosions all because grown-ups can’t shake hands.
Tidal waves within me, and I feel powerless and angry.
Yet despite all this, the great hive still buzzes. Even for me, hiding that data in code for the sake of living.
