"Group Anxiety"

Something is happening today, and I have no clue what it might be.
There is a charge of electricity in the air, the kind of anxiousness that
comes from the unknown. Even my co-workers feel it, a darkness
slipping in and amongst us that none of us can see, but palpable nonetheless.
Very palpable. Even the cats at home seemed to feel it, and were
nowhere to be found this morning.

Somewhere, I don't know where, a huge amount of energy is being
expended, not all of it good. It's disturbing, unsettling, and knowing that
it is happening without knowing what is happening. The result is a
small, icy finger of panic, stirring in my belly and brushing close to my
heart. It isn't pleasant, and I want desparately for it to go away, but
even more I want to know what is going on to cause this.

I just found out that the reason for this mass anxiety may be from a
large quake in the Atlantic today. Just heard about it on break. ER guy
said everyone coming in today is just bouncing off walls, and the
chaplains said they've see it too.

Also, we've recalled our ambassador from Syria... Looks bad. This is
far from over.

Could be, what with Russia building and suppling Nukes to Iran and missles to Syria. The U.S. cutting diplomacy with Syria. Syria and Iran forming a pact, Syria bombing Lebanons leader not to mention North Korea. Smells like war.

Whew. I thought it was from the giant asteroid hurtling at us.

Hey Mama - do you have any ideas on a banner for my blog? I couldn't find your email so I thought I'd send you the msg via comments. Give me a hoo. OK?
