Making bread out of lint

Every once in a while, just for a very brief moment, I get this overwhelming sense of dread mixed with grief. Usually it happens when I am in a place with lots of people and it occurs to me that because of the combination of a bunch of potentially disastrous events, most if not all of these people will have their lives changed dramatically for the worse in a myriad variety of ways that even I am unable to fathom. Then the feeling passes, and yet I am left with a foreboding feeling that it seems like only I am aware of an impending doom while all of those around me have not an iota of the coming storm.

Oops looks like The Princess has been using the computer. Now you know her real name.

As for that feeling of dread. I got it more after seeing The Day After Tomorrow. Now it's environmental documentaries that do it to me.

I know what you mean. Sometimes the thought of who could possibly be the next US president gives me that feeling of dread & imminent doom.
