"Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful."
-Margaret J. Wheatley

The cacophony of competing agendas makes it seem like I am watching a ping pong match. A match that at times moves with the silent speed of molasses or with the thundering destruction of Niagara Falls.

There is a whole cacophony of sounds and tastes that I just wish would somehow come together to form something beautiful. Make it one agenda.

But here I am without having a peaceful quiet corner. I find myself drifting meaninglessly in front of the competing crowds each arguing that their agenda is the only right one.

But which one? Neither willing to blend or bend. Why does it have to be either or? Why not work together?

As I drift I find myself devolving, no longer an advocate for the positive but rather finding my identity moving further down into a darkness where the noise does not allow me to hear my own voice anymore.

Am I just pleasing those who demanded a distorted version of reality, writing only to please one side or another?
