Our World Keeps Getting Smaller

Today, as we were outside in our backyard working in the garden, talking to our neighbors, and enjoying our chickens, it occurred to me that our world keeps getting smaller and smaller.

I say this because of all the awful things happening around the world and in our own country.

When things are good, the whole world feels like our world. We feel free and able to go anywhere we want to (in our own minds).

When we hear snippets of the news, we hear about diseases coming our way, big problems on our border with Mexico, war in Ukraine, war in Gaza, and scandals our president and his administration are involved in. It can become too much to acknowledge and makes us sad as well.

The only way we can stay productive and relatively happy is to focus very close to ourselves. And so our world keeps getting smaller and smaller.

Does that make any sense to you at all?
