Happy Tuesday! I am feeling the need to see if I am crazy or if the world is crazy so I am hoping you all might be able to help. I do not understand for the life of me all this news coverage of horrific crimes that are committed. Why is it that as soon as one major trail is done another starts playing on the TV. Don't people have a enough struggles and problems in their lives that they really need to watch this depressing shit all day? These are disgusting things that good people are inviting into their homes and are fascinated with. I can understand reading a mystery novel, I can get watching a horror movie, what I don't understand is taking a real life persons pain and suffering and going through it detail by detail trying listening to disgusting facts of disgusting deeds and being captivated by it. If I was forced to watch this I would be physically ill. Listening to this day in and day out eats away at a persons humanity and just like one television show about 8 kids is going to make crazy people go out and try to have 18 kids to get on TV watching this shit is going to get to crazy people and more sick things are going to keep happening. I know that we must learn from our past mistakes and know what happens in the world around us but do really need each and every little dirty detail? Cant we just accept that sometimes sick people do horrible things to very innocent people, trust they they are made to account for those actions and not dwell on the sick perverseness of it all? I would really like to know your take on this, let me know if you think we as a society are sharing too much...

First let me start off by apologizing for not posting in so long I have had some great plans that were then eaten by the baby brain and thus gone forever! So without further delay let talk. How do feel about the saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Is that really true? Something that is beautiful is always beautiful right? I could look at my daughter and always see the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen, even when she hasn't had a bath in a few days and wont let me brush her hair. Does everyone see what I see though? Are my eyes trained to see what my heart tells me? Lets take family and kids out of it. When I look at a Jackson Pollock painting I feel moved inside it amazes me that something so beautiful can be on a canvas in front of me. Some people don't understand his work though they simply see a mess on a canvas. So whats your take is beauty universal? Who says what is wonderful? Is it all subjective?
