Making Sense

Nothing makes sense. We live on a planet where nothing much seems to make sense anymore

(In the human realm, anyway.

Did it ever??)

I keep trying & trying & trying

Year after year

Decade after decade

Trying my hardest to make sense out of things…

In a culture in which almost nothing really makes sense.

I guess it doesn’t make sense, does it?

I guess I don’t make sense.

Ah well. Since nothing else does, I guess I am in good company!


p.s. after some time away from this draft posting: Well heck, love still makes sense, hmmm? Always has, always will! I think I will say no more on that score, as it would be far too easy to become sappy or preachy. Anyway, it's time for a walk!
