Blue Monday

Yesterday, January 17th was declared to be “Blue Monday,” the most depresing day of the year according to “statistics.”
Now that this has been announced, on the morning news, let us pay attention to the herd which will 'discover' it's depression. After all, we cannot disagree with 'experts' who cite statistics and announce their 'interpretations' of those statistics on the news for the rest of us to further our understanding of ourselves.
I often wonder how different life would be if it were not for experts and their predictions. How many outcomes are actually controlled and directed by telling the herd what to expect them to be before they happen?
The majority, it seems, are more concerned about being O.D.D. For we must always smile at “authority, that faceless, blurry spiritual entity which must never be questioned or blamed by good children.

Perhaps the children might consider growing up and looking at reality as it is rather than as we would like it to be. It might make a good starting point for a new way of being in the world together.
