“Seeing is not always believing” (Martin Luther King Jr. 1929-1968)
I admit it. I am suffering  from massive information overload. I felt bombarded from all sides with breaking news (usually bad), dire weather reports, conspiracy theories, the latest fad from some new guru, self-serving politicians or celebrities holding forth on subjects they know little about. I watched some of my friends obsessing about issues in the political scene over which they had absolutely no control or influence. In defence of my sanity I limited my TV watching to dance and cooking competitions (recorded to watch later sans commercials) and my newspaper reading to the crossword puzzle pages specially the cryptic crosswords. But I couldn’t completely escape the digital deluge without shutting down my computer and smart phone, and I need both for my work.
