Just A Tad Jumpy
We humans are a skittish bunch. It's really not surprising. We, all of us, are caught in the time trap. As each second unfolds before us, the preceeding second closes behind us. We can't turn around and go back. The only direction we can move is forward into the unknown and the inevitable. If you add to this the range of possibilities (terrorists, Trump, Putin, illness etc.) and our human inclination to ponder them, it's really no wonder the weaker among us turn to drugs, cults and weapons. I firmly believe this situation is the root cause of my coffee dependence. I have discovered though, as many of you will have, that worrying about what may happen is usually worse than actually experiencing what does happen. My plan is to worry less and drink more coffee. We'll see what happens when it happens.
