I’ve given up thinking about the future. For a while.
On the one hand I’m being swamped by so much incoming information that I can’t think straight. On the other hand the present has become so weird and intense (Tsunamis, nuclear meltdowns, the Middle East etc) that thinking about the future seems rather pointless.
Hence I’m turning off the tap. I’m not going to read anything except books for a month. This means no newspapers and no magazines. And, if I can pull it off, no TV or internet. I won’t be blogging for a while either.
Something resembling normality will resume in a month or so when the dust has settled and the view of what lies ahead has hopefully improved.
