    The difficulty I have in tapping into my source of joy in life, is I find it to be more of a state of mind, rather than a physical place, thing, or anything tangible that you can easily identify and check off a list as having obtained.

    However, when I get to that point, all the noise around me seems to fade, and I feel refreshed once again and ready to battle the daily stresses of life. Overall, I would say I am happy with my life, but this particular mental state of mind is, unfortunately, rather short lived until I come across it again.

    To me, part of obtaining that mental place, is allowing myself to think larger picture and to observe my life, where I am and where I sit in the larger framework of things. It's a sort of recentering that I must do every so often to maintain my inner composure and mental health. At least, in this very moment, I can say I have identified joy and I am happy.

    Summer is a lot easier to deal with when you just accept that you will always be sweaty and disheveled, and that there's nothing you can do about it.
    and it's nice enough to
    make a man
    weep, but I don't
    weep, do
    you?

    It has been in the 60's and raining here since Thursday. I am sooooo thankful for it given how awful last summer was.

    Red Dead Redemption was made backwards compatible for the Xbox One the other day.

    It's kind of whack, but playing it now, I continuously have this overwhelming urge to weep. It's such a beautiful game.

    Barack Obama attacks Polish democracy in a speech... Polish TV changes speech

    Amid fears of a rollback of Poland’s democratic freedoms, President Obama had a harsh message of concern during a trip here for a NATO summit.

    But viewers of Poland’s main evening news program saw exactly the opposite.
    ...

    Obama’s tough message Friday, standing alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda, was that he “expressed to President Duda our concerns over certain actions and the impasse around the Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal.”

    “More work needs to be done,” Obama said. “And as your friend and ally, we've urged all parties to work together to sustain Poland’s democratic institutions.”

    But viewers of Telewizja Polska, the main public broadcaster, saw a very different suggestion on the evening news.

    “Ninety-five percent of the meeting was about issues of NATO and security, but Obama praised Polish efforts at democracy,” the reporter said. “Concerning the issue of the constitutional tribunal, he said he is sure that spreading democratic values in Poland will not stop.”

    Then the broadcaster played a clip of Obama’s friendly cushioning of his criticism, while skipping the substance of the message.

    In the clip played on Polish television, Obama was also translated by a dubbed voice-over as saying that “Poland is and will be an example of democracy for the whole world.”

    What he actually said was that “Poland stands and needs to continue to stand as an example for democratic practices around the world.”

    More than 100 journalists have been dismissed or have resigned from Poland’s public broadcaster this year, a measure of the major changes underway there. Some journalists say that anyone perceived as critical of the Law and Justice party is now under threat. Shortly after the party took office, it changed laws giving Poland’s Finance Ministry the direct power to appoint the head of the broadcaster. The new head is Jacek Kurski, a member of the Law and Justice party and a former member of European Parliament.

    Oh, and in Japan Shinzo Abe now has the 2/3 majority he needs to trash the constitution and do away with constitutional principles he dislikes such as the prohibition of war and equality of the sexes. Voter turnout was extremely low (under 33% two hours before polls closed), especially considering what was at stake.

    Fun times are these.

    Maybe liberalism's high water mark was a few years back.

    Or maybe liberals focused on the wrong things (again) and were no prepared when the 11th hour arrived.
