    i am no more awake than i've ever been
    unwoke about politics and human rights
    most of my conclusions come from assumption
    and i assume that is on the common side

    who am i to know the world past my scope
    all that i'm left with is despair or hope
    to sort out the folly from the truly significant
    i look at the pieces and sort out their differences

    a smaller part of me believes i'm wrong for all I've done now
    sat idly by while my consciousness was wrung out
    all of the pieces out on display
    sold to the world in a matter of days

    i can't help but to believe it was bound to happen
    and i only got their first just in time to take credit
    now i sit around and think about the things i know i'm not
    a stark raving lunatic or an idiot savant

      Any persistent delusions of grandeur pretty well get beaten out of me on a fairly regular basis. ;)

    On the plus side, it's a very rare occasion that I find myself depressed. Mostly my "normal" is to feel really good and perhaps enjoy existence a little too much, if there is such a thing. I am the observer who is in turn being observed. I like to say I'm not paranoid, I just know more than most people.

    There is a magical dog owned by a wizard named Dresden as presented in the Dresden Files series of stories written by Jim Butcher. The dog's name is Mouse if I recall. In a recent story it was revealed that the dog's own magic power includes the ability to enhance the surroundings and improve the experiences of others within his area of influence. Now that's what I'd like, the power to make the experience of life better for everyone.

    You do believe in magic, don't you?

      Seems like ever confusing times since the specter of covid and its effect on mental health.

    Some seem to be coping or adapting though, which is a good thing. This piece makes me think we are all doing what we can and should reflect on how we view different classes of people.

    Lately, I've been more generous and kind since the pandemic, or at the very least, less verbal about my annoyances and stress. Also trying to keep a straighter face vs dour.

    At the end of one day, it's the kindnesses that we do that add up. Even if we're all somewhere in between woke and asleep. I like the last line of this piece. I like to consider we're all just straddling the line between lunatic and idiot savant.
