Out of the Blue

We recently made a small change to our coffee routine that has turned out more helpful than I expected. During a recent shopping trip our big box store was out of the big bags of Starbucks French Roast coffee beans, so we got some house blend. Not surprisingly, the coffee tasted a bit less robust at first. But I it was a surprise that I was able to adjust so quickly, as it tastes perfectly fine to me now. So I'm viewing this as good news, because I was used to finding coffee other than my own less satisfying too. But now that I've made my adjustment, this will go a lot better for me. I'm sure I'll still prefer my own over the coffee most places make, but I expect to like coffee on the go a lot better now.

I look at the world today and cannot help but see some parallels with the world that existed in the early 1930s.

I take a very 'big picture' view of most things, but I do know through the several instances of history into which I delved deeply that history is extremely cyclical. There will always be parallels. Very few things that happen throughout history happen for the first time anymore. The only exception seems to be when new technology is introduced. Electricity, automobiles, the moon landing, the atomic bomb, the internet, AI... they and hundreds of others have ushered in new norms, but they never change the one constant - humankind goes to war. A lot. The only change in that is how efficient we become at it. Of course you will see parallels, and patterns. We have followed this script a thousand times, and will continue to do so. It's just who we are as a species.
