This book book shattered my hopes of a better future. There is no match to the amount of sorrow that is inflicted upon me, it wrecked, wrenched and exploded my thoughts till I can no longer think about it. Slowly I was able to move on, it's okay, everything is fine now, everything is going to be fine. Almost fine. I will be safe. Almost safe. I then proceeded to make my next cup of tea. Over that shimmering cup of tea, I thought about heat death, hunger, no access drinking water or food, economic collapse, refuge crisis, wild fires, toxic air and massive tornadoes. Not going to happen. It's a worse nightmare at best. We are fine. We will figure it out. I did what our brains are wired to do, reject all the compounding evidence around us and move on with our lives. It's just a nightmare.
