Post-Holiday Blues

If anyone was in the Middle East, and in Kuwait in particular, over the last week, you would know that there was a long holiday celebrating Eid Al-Fitr.

Eid Al-Fitr marks the end of the month of Ramadan and literally means "breaking the fast celebration". Of course, celebration means, in the current state of affairs, "travel, party, get drunk, laid, etc etc".

Of course, I'm not being judgmental or anything! No, you see... I was getting used to staying at home for a while. 4 days of the week spent out of work is always a joy.

As the title of this post says... getting back into the old routine of long working hours and workin' for the man always seems to remind us of the daily struggle to live in the world these days. Inflation, world economic collapse, uncertainty, extremism, deportation, exodus, war, hostile takeovers, layoffs, and general malaise. And the occasional flu.

Just another day to have the blues.

Not all sounds hopeless of course. Love will find a way. It found me... and I found it too.

So I'm gonna remind everyone for a second:

Enjoy it... and good blues to ya!
