The Mysterious Disappearance of the Status Quo.

The mainstream media is so quick to point out change that too often issues and actions take a backseat to the now. The market is up today because of a fed announcement. The market is down the next with a bad jobs report. New homes sales increase, feel the updraft. Existing home sales slow, and down we go. Events cannot even take place before we have all the talking heads telling us what we saw. Oftentimes, we are now being told what to expect before the events unfold. "500,000 die in tsunami, wait a minute, that's 750, no 57." You get the idea. Or you don't. If you don't get it, someone will give it to you. There is no middle ground anymore. The Status Quo as we know it no longer exists. We've lost the present to the fleeting past and the onrushing future. We have lost time. Time to live, to enjoy and appreciate.

There's no time like the present. There's - no - time - like - the - present. That's because the present does not exist. All this convenience and speed of information has created mental morass and intellectual gruel.

We are trapped in the between, another dimension on the border of dissatisfaction and disorientation.

I say BRING BACK THE STATUS QUO. Let us relish in the moment, wander among the stars and cherish the next breath we take.

"Ad Hoc, Ad Loc & Quid Pro Quo, so little time, so MUCH to know!"

All Hail the STATUS QUO!
