Since traveling throughout the Southwest I have been paying no attention to the news this summer, except the weather and the world cup. I caught a glimpse of an abduction, a plane crash, a war… What is the value of following the headlines and “knowing” about the details and the background of these atrocities? Most of us will do nothing about it, except talk. Talk is cheap, it does not change a thing.
It’s all noise.
I am going to Canyonlands today, one of the most quiet places in the United States.
