I wonder

If we removed anxiety and fear from our individual and collective psyche, what would remain?

Would it be deafening silence? Would it be peace? Would it be clarity? Would it be joy? Would it be all of the above?

I wonder.

In these troubling times, try to look up and not down. You are still loved.

I’ve written three feature length screenplays, produced two short films, and published ten novels. Before quitting my day job, I spent more than thirty years as a marketing director building expertise in advertising, copywriting, corporate communications, collateral sales materials, website content/design and online marketing.

That is a very interesting question David. I would like to believe some mix of all those things would remain, and maybe trust – in what we are doing, and in what we love about life? And the concluding lines are something we all need to hear in these times. It is so easy to start looking down. Thank you.

Thanks for your comments, Oscar. I meant to ask you about the beautiful photo on your latest blog. Did you create it, or did you acquire it for another source? I’m using Adobe Stock photos. It’s a bit costly. I saw that WordPress has free photos. I have to check it out, but usually free photos are not that great.
