Thank you for that.
It might have been me feeling this way, but for quite a few years, from 2003 till now, those years in which the world was in the supposed economic recess, I'd lost touch with a feeling of security and comfort within my own surroundings and my own community. Now it seems that comfort has returned. Personally I understand it as having arisen out of the thresholds of fear and inner aggression that I've been working to subdue. I wonder if this is only happening in me or could whole pockets of our world be finding a return to a sense of community as the fear spread by real threats and misconceived alike have withered in many respects? Hmm. Either way - I like it.
