Yesterday, I had CNN on with the sound muted while doing household chores. Before realizing what was being shown, I caught strikingly apocalyptic images of the Northern California firestorm out of the corner of my eye. For a split second, a deep dark dread came over me, and the first thing that popped into my mind was “Oh my god…he’s really done it. He has actually started World War III.”
Why would I even think that? I’m a somewhat rational person.

Paranoia…or premonition? I guess that’s where the zeitgeist is now.
