There are many other things that I'd planned to write about, but at the moment it all seems too trivial. I'm trying to write for my other blog and I'm feeling blocked. How can I not address what happens in the world? But is it really appropriate? Can I make it appropriate? I don't know, so maybe if I write about it here, I can get it out of my system. I may bake something later, but I'm not feeling happy enough to blog about it, so I figured I'd just write what I've been feeling.
I may have reached my saturation point with news of what happened at Virginia Tech, because it's really getting to me. It's all so horrible. My heart goes out to the victims and their families, alumni of the school. I feel that same kind of mental and emotional exhaustion that I did after September 11th. I just stopped watching the news after a few days, because I couldn't take it anymore. But then I feel guilty for shutting it out, because the families of the victims don't have that luxury and I also become uninformed.
I don't normally get writer's block. It's very easy for me to write, but I'm still blocked. Maybe baking will be therapeutic. For now, the hyacinth that I bought has opened and looks beautiful. I guess no matter what happens, we have to be able to still see beauty in the world.
