Hey Mark, This is Floyd. Was wondering where the podcast went so I dropped by. Glad to hear you are busy making music. I really liked this last post. I've been thinking the same thing lately. I recently had a small shift in my paradigm wherein I decided that I could have faith in humanity, not in humans individually, but in the idea that humanity finds a way to survive and adapt and change and improve over time, (even if conditions look pretty poor respectively at any moment). I have decided that perhaps the world doesn't need saving, and what saving it might need, I sure as heck am not going to do it alone. It is definitely relieving, I can be at peace amidst all the political and societal turmoil that is going on, Heck, I can even laugh. I can do this because at my core I know, "I will find a way to make it. No matter what happens."

Keep it up. I do believe you are right, There are others of the "unnamed party" who are escaping the B.S. of the world. I'll keep my eyes out for them and do my best to keep my ties to them.

Sincerely Floyd

P.S. I've found love. :)

Hi glad to hear that things have found love. :-) I also really appreciate what you say about attempting to save the, so true. I admit to sometimes having problems believing in humans OR humanity, to be honest...but I also know that we are mostly just being led astray by powerful, corrupting forces and should not blame the average person just trying to make it (as we are).

I'm sure the podcast will be back...but I've been sort of in the mode of only doing what I actually feel inspired to do. I'm sort of getting my thoughts together or something...not sure how to explain it. Thanks for checking in and I wish you all the best. :-)
