It's another morning when a cheery Instagram image seems sadly inappropriate. Another morning when with a heavy heart I turn away from social media - unable to bear the grief and suffering of others.
My sunny yellow nail varnish put on yesterday seems totally out of place and as for my fun pink flamingos... But then, I'm not sure what the alternative is. We can't stop doing what makes us happy, what makes us human. We can't not reach out to people and share our lives because if we do that we really are giving in to terror and letting those sad excuses for human beings shape or world into something we don't want it to be.
So, I'm just going to sit here and knit for a bit, quietly enjoying the process and trying to think about all the things that make our world a better place to be.
