Return to Reality

May 16, 2012

Several days ago I returned to civilization having just spent six weeks on a kibbutz in the middle of the desert. It was a harsh return. Back to the honking cars, pushing and shoving, and general stress of city life. I watched TV, something I generally prefer not to do, and indulged myself in the current events around the world. Or at least what the news channel decided were the most important events currently happening. No matter where you go, the news always seems to focus on crime, human suffering, and pro sports.  Is this our replacement for gladiator games and public punishment for accused criminals? If so, has human nature really evolved in the past 2000 years or have we just become more technologically advanced?

    Yes! 3 weeks now with no tv, no news, no headlines, no sad lines/bad lines, whatever…… Just national parks. When you really get away, you never really fully return, which is the best thing about traveling for me.
    Welcome back!
