Disconnect or something like it

Throughout the last few months I have been loosely following the posting-inspiration guide 52 Weeks of Blogging Your Passion. The prompt I intended to focus on last week asked me discuss recent news or an event that inspired or motivated me in some way.

We certainly aren't lacking in news around here: the U.S. is experiencing all kinds of weather craziness (drought, earthquake, hurricanes); the U.N. Building in Nigeria was bombed; Libya is undergoing all sorts of changes...

And as far as events go: Ben is traveling, Em started school, I turned 29 for the first time...

But none of the above have really made an impact on my work. Am I supposed to incorporate crazy weather patterns into my garter designs?

Okay, I could actually kind of see that working from a design standpoint...
Does this mean I'm somehow disconnected from the world around me? I don't feel disconnected.

How about you?  Do you ever feel like there are all sorts of things going on around you but they somehow don't touch your life at all?
