An unsustainable breaking point

This morning I received an inbox advertisement for Microsoft Cloud which noted it was good for sustainability. That word sustainability caught my eye. Everything these days is about sustainability or so say millions of people. If something is sustainable it is able to be maintained at the current rate or level. The use of this word apparently started steadily increasing from 1980s onward. Now it seems to just be part of regular parlance.

What about that which is unsustainable? Meaning that which is NOT able to be maintained at the current rate or level. To me, the use of the word unsustainable is even more widely used these days. I would note in particular to the great resignation economy.

Chris Wallace, the news anchor, recently gave an interview on leaving Fox News in which he boted: “I’m fine with opinion: conservative opinion, liberal opinion. But when people start to question the truth — Who won the 2020 election? Was Jan. 6 an insurrection? — I found that unstainable”

For many people, regardless of specific context whether its work, family, friendships or so forth, situations have become unsustainable. It seems we have collectively reached an unsustainability breaking point. We are reflecting on world events. We are pausing every now and again to assess to consider or consider our standing. Where do we want to go? What can we tolerate? What are we tolerating. It seems we each need our own unsustainability index.

    “You Started Work at the Military
    Bowling Center on August 28, 1984.”

    i Was Rather Shocked When An Autistic
    Man in Casual Conversation Noted That Start
    Date in A Department Store Recently as i Was
    Amazed That He Could Remember That Small
    Tid Bit of Information About me Stored in His Brain
    From Over Two Decades Ago When i Supervised
    Him As A Bowling Center Manager Who Didn’t Know

    How to Bowl then Yet True Not Unlike Him i Still Remember
    What i Wore on Vacations Decades Year Ago With Movie Maker
    Full Color Memories of All Associated Feelings and Senses Then

    Problem Before i Didn’t Understand How to Regulate My Emotions
    And Integrate my Senses With A Free Dance And Song And True
    i Aced Almost Every Multiple Choice Test As That is How We Were
    Tested Most through 19 Years of School and 3 Degrees then And All

    It Took
    Was Rote
    Memory to
    Data Download
    And Spit the Facts Back

    Yet Life is More Complicated
    Than Acing All the Multiple Choice
    Tests Yet They Didn’t Really Teach me that
    in School or Work or Even Church and Home too…

    in The Last 5 Years of my Work Career Trying to Keep
    A Federal Golden Hand-Cuffs for Benefits Job Through
    25 Years Almost There Yet i had to Do Whatever Came

    Next

    to Survive
    Bowling Center Manager
    Print Manager of NAS Pensacola
    Community Activities Director
    Athletic Director And Finally
    Recreation Programs

    Director None of
    Those Jobs
    i Was

    Really Qualified
    to Do As i Was Considered
    A Valuable Commodity More than
    Human For my Computer And Financial
    Management Skills i Learned Outside of School
    And Outside of Work as Well For the Valuable

    Commodity
    Lasting as

    Long as i Could
    Barely Make Another
    Move in Pain and Numb At Work…

    i Am always Amazed When i Think About
    What You’ve Been able to accomplish As
    CEO of 5 Health Clinics in New York, New York…

    Yet i Remember Folks Are Different And You Have the Right

    Stuff to
    Accomplish
    A Job Critical
    for the Non-Profit
    Areas of Health Care
    You Serve in the Biggest
    City in the United States…

    Yet Of Course You Know What You
    Are Doing Yet in my Second Job Change
    Working For the Government Print Manager
    Approving Printing Jobs And Editing Work Other
    Folks Have Done for the Largest Navy Station Here

    They Sent me to, ‘They’ Said Just Roam the Halls Up and

    Down Here in the Administration Building of the Naval Air Station

    Someone

    May Be able
    to Tell you How to
    Do Your Job SMiLes

    i Still Have No Idea What
    i Am Doing Yet It’s Peaceful
    And Easy As the Summer Breeze
    i Enjoyed That Day on the Beach
    As At Least the Naval Air Station

    Was Located on the Beach

    If i Couldn’t Have Escaped that
    Hell Hole of a Building Every Day
    For Lunch to that Beach Solo and Alone
    in Peace i Might Not Have Ever made it
    through that 3 Month Job Before i Got Moved
    to Another And Another And Still Another Job
    i wasn’t Qualified For All in 5 Years Finally Saying

    i Give

    And

    i Am Going
    Away and
    Never Working
    Again of Course
    i Didn’t Have Much to
    Say After Falling Flat on my
    Face Defeated By the World Finally at Age 47…

    i’m Surprised i Was Able to Get Up and Go Do Again….

    With Enough Time Healing Comes From Within Indeed…
