I just want to start things over

It's been a while since I posted anything, I know. That bitch of a hurricane who stole my name has also drained my emotions, and made me hesitant to write because I didn't know what might come spewing out.

My hope/plan for today is to sleep as much as possible, to try to rest my mind and heart. They've been jerked around enough lately.

I understand. During the buildup to the Iraq war I felt my spirit, emotions, soul was so connected to everything happening on a global scale, it was overwhelming.

I fought not to be overwhelmed, to stay connected, and to pray with a fervor I have never felt before. But I did burn out after a while. I couldn't maintain that level of connectedness.

Now I feel numb to what I read or see in the news. I still fight against things I think are wrong, I do what I can do. I voted against Bush. I've written letters, attended protests. I teach media literacy in my class. I gave money to the Red Cross.

But I am not as emotionally involved as I was. I can't be, for my own sanity.

I don't know if that's good or bad. To be that sensitive is a gift, but it's a curse too. All I can say is, protect yourself. Rest.
