I have glanced back at the recent blogs in this space and find that few if any deal with our hot topic, parking. I don’t want to downplay the topic, its important to all of us as it deals with how we make our respective livings. However with all that’s happening in the world, I find it difficult to focus on it.

Inflation is destructive and cruel. It affects the least among us and makes it difficult for them to thrive. War or the threat of war is not good. Its destructive forces know no limits. It kills and maims the innocent as well as the guilty. Rampant crime destroys our culture, our homes, and our lives. It brings fear where it should not be.

Our children are being robbed of their innocence. Its OK for them to be kids. To run and play and get into mischief. Its how they learn and grow. We don’t need to expose four and five year olds to what they are not ready to understand.

I could go on but you get the point. With all this, try to think about parking, with all its foibles and intricacies. It just doesn’t seem that important.

History tells us that it is cyclic. Things will get better. They have before and they will again. I am certain of that. Remember the graffiti on the walls of Pompeii. Something to the effect “Teenagers are acting like hoodlums, There is no hope for the future.” We went through the dark ages, and then the rebirth, the renaissance. We survived the horrors of the wars in Europe, the world wars, the nuclear age. And we will survive this.

Still, its difficult to focus. But I will give it the old college try. Look for parking in our future. It sounds strange but much depends on it. Particularly in our personal lives.
